Hostel was clean, easy to find. Breakfast was decent for £5. Bar well stocked. 5 minute walk to the city centre. You can park at sea court park and ride for £2.20 a day which is a 15 minute walk away, or pay £2 for a return bus to the train station which is next door to the hostel. We... More

This hostel was very nice and I enjoyed my stay greatly! I met great people in my room and we were able to adventure out and explore the amazing things the city has to offer by just going for a short walk right into the hub of Oxford! The common space was very nice with the wifi, and so was... More

So easy to get to and from Heathrow and Oxford is such a beautiful city. I've stayed at the Oxford hostel at least 5 times, maybe 6 and it is always clean and a welcome stop on my trips to England. It is a short walk from the train station and also close enough to walk to the bus station.... More

Oxford is an expensive place to stay - especially for a solo traveller. The YHA offers affordable accommodation, in a great location right next to the railway station. Clean & smart, with an easy check in and good breakfast

No problems checking in. If you're in a car then parking is an issue - but it can be overcome. There are some free parking spaces across the road or need to park in the 'park and ride' which is quite a walk up Botley Road (but is cheap, secure and there are loads of buses). Rooms are clean and... More

I stayed in a 6-bed female dorm for 1 night and everything was pretty good. The room was a good size for 6 people and the shower room and toilet are ensuite but do not face directly onto where everyone is sleeping, so you feel like there is some privacy.
