It was the last place we could find with space the weekend. We know why now! Real shame but if they spent some money on this place in the last 5 years I'm not sure where! Good points - bed mattress was firm, location great, free cycle storage.... Bad points - noisy, showers awful, place is falling apart Please someone...

As a cheap bed for the night I suppose it's OK. The bed was clean and comfy enough, the kitchen fairly well-equipped and I appreciated the free tea/coffee; but there is no excuse for dirty showers and toilets. I've seen better ones in a student squat. However cheap this place is, don't even think about going there if stairs are...

Staff were nice and although there's not much atmosphere I did meet nice travelers to go out with. The sign to the place is on the ground so I was looking up for it on the building and walked past several times (my stupidy) My really only compalint was the beams and where the bunks are, I was on the...

Room was stinky and dirty, loads of dirty clothes and underwear on the floor. Doesn't matter how cheap is accomodation, it's not expensieve to keep it...

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...

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...

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...
