I've found that YHA's are becoming less about youth and more about families and older people wanting somewhere cheap to stay. That being said, it suited me perfectly on this occassion as I really needed to chill. There were also a lot of people who were studying at Oxford University so got to meet some people studying some really fanscinating but obscure things.
The location is great, nice and close to the station. I actually walked padt because I wasn't expecting it to be that close. There is a spacious room as you enter, another lounge room, a library (handy I guess if you need somewhere quiet to study) and the best kitchen that I've come across anywhere. When somewhere advertises a kitchen, I've come to expect a microwave, fridge, couple of plates and if you're REALLY lucky a portable hotplate. But this place had several oven/cooktops so it actually was a kitchen. And unlike the dodgy fridges in most places where you end up with luke warm milk, the actually come around on a daily basis to check that the fridges are at the correct temperature.
I said in a 6 bed female dorm that had its own ensuite. Only annoying thing was that there were two princesses in my room who literally took an hour in the morning to do their hair and makeup so I had to go use a different bathroom.
Overall great value for money!
