Visited Oxford for an interview during the week. The hostel was great, quite quiet, with friendly and helpful people. The people are young, the atmosphere is relaxed and vibrant at the same time. As a solo traveller you quickly made contact with others visiting Oxford on their own. I was staying there for an interview at the university and met quite a few more serious (ie, non party, interview/student/library) types there. Good facilities and it was definitely wel cleaned, only once spotted a messy bathroom (must have been one very messy person) and an hour later it had already been cleaned!
It must ofcourse be noted that there is quite a bit of noise from the clubs around, it is more feeling the beat than hearing it (this was not even the weekend). Also I believe the hostel was fully booked on the weekend, and this may make it a little more cramped in the common rooms and kitchen. Still, lovely place to stay!More
