The main positive from my experience here was the great location - near the train/bus station as well as the main hub of bath. Also, their laundry service is reasonably priced and quick! The rooms themselves were clean. The rest of my experience staying here was negative. The rooms are not very soundproof so there is a lot of noise... More

My friend and I recently had the displeasure of staying at Bath Backpackers for two nights. Whilst centrally located, that's where the positives end. The Hostel was old and incredibly run down, the toilets were putrid and clearly not cleaned on a regular basis, the shower room is old and dated, with shocking water pressure (would have had a better...

We've basically didn't sleep at all. While the location is outstanding, the room was bad and the pillows look like they are 100 years old. No stuffing and covers are stained and bleached everywhere. The bathrooms are just okay and the common room is not welcoming at all. Most of all, this hostel was super noisy!!! Straight out to a... More

You literally can not get anymore central than this it is right in the middle. You can walk everywhere from here it is a really good location! The rooms were small and didn't have enough plug sockets but the mattress was comfortable. The toilets were not very pleasant even though the staff were clearly trying to keep them hygienic I...

I stayed only one night my experience was ok. I arrived way before check in time and they offered to hold my bags (for free) while I explores the city, that was a really usefull thing. They’ll ask for a 5 refundable deposit to be sure you behave (haha). I didn’t really feel a good atmosphere in the place but... More

The staff were helpful. The hostel was dated and needed a bit of life. The shining star was the location, situated a stones throw away from the train station and shops. The price was moderate for what you get. Beds were not comfortable. Common room was decent size and there were some computers free to use. Wifi was scarce throughout.
