I stayed for 2 nights at this great value youth hostel. The location is superb if you want to be central. It's right next to the train station (you can see it as you pull in), and within a few minutes walk of the city centre for shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. The welcome on arrival was good, although I...

This was a long time I didn’t get back to a hostel. At first, it looked quite ok, but the came the nightmare! 6 people on the room, yet 2 people snearing whereof one 10 times badder and louder than a f** pig. So I left the hostel at 3h30am back to London. When arriving down at the reception, I...

Sorry to read that you were unlucky with your room mates on this occasion and to see that you had such a poor night at our hostel. We do try our best to do everything we can to ensure that everyone has a good nights sleep at the hostel, but I'm afraid that we can't predict if your room mates...

Came here on a road trip of the South of England. Has all the facilities you would need for a good price. The hostel is also well situated, it's about a 20 min walk from the centre, there is a waitrose 10 mins down the road and an off licence a couple of mins away for any emergency milk buying!

Thank you very much for your recent review of the hostel. We're really happy to see that you found us to be a good place to stay and rated us four stars. I'm gonna be a little bit cheeky and contest your walking times to town - Google maps says 10 minutes to George Street with the bus station, cinema,...

I felt so welcome as soon as I entered at YHA in Oxford. The staff is very warm with you, the music in the common area at the entrance is just perfect while drinking a cup of tea, the female shared room was just perfect and exactly what I needed: clean, smell very nice, bathroom just for that room, the...

Stayed here with a friend as part of a roadtrip of the south of England around the youth hostels of places we wanted to visit. The youth hostel is very close to the centre of Oxford and next to the train station which is great for visiting attractions there, but makes parking a bit of a nightmare! We were extremely...

Thank you for your review of YHA Oxford. Yes, we would love to have a parking but there is unfortunately a general shortage of parking spaces all around the city!

Oxford YHA is really brilliant. Right next to the station, very clean, extremely helpful staff, large & clean self-catering kitchen (thank you for still providing this opportunity!!). Only negative point was a noisy group staying on the same floor. Doors banging & shouting young people kept me aware for part of the night.

Spaceous room, staff very friendly, cook yourself or eat there for good prices, nice extra spaces (rec room, library/reading room, terrace, lounge, etc.) Wifi only in lounge, good breakfast with plenty of choice. Walking distance from town. Liked it a lot!
