“Clean, convenient, budget option”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

I stayed in a single room and used the shared bathrooms. The breakfast (free Continental breakfast, very affordable cooked breakfast) was a good way to start the day. They give you a security fob to enter the accommodations area, so it felt more secure. The location is wonderful, a short walk to all the sights in central Bath.

A bonus: I had a great view of the Bath Abbey from my room.

Wifi or internet use (with or without your own computer) is not free; you have to purchase minutes from the front desk. Bring your own towels, shampoo, toothpaste, etc. They only provide soap.

Room Tip: See if you can get a room with a nice view, or find out which wings have the bathroom that you would...

We stayed here in a triple room which was clean and tidy. We were right next to the shared bathrooms (good showers) and would all recommend this as a cheap alternative to a hotel.

Fantastic hostel, clean, friendly, located in really nice area. Great view from room windows. The only downside is that you have to pay for using Internet.

Basic hostel, but clean and in a good location, although it is a bit hard to find because the entrance is in the alley way. Friendly and helpful staff - breakfast was fine, nothing fancy - hot food available for small fee.

We stayed in a family room so we fortunately didn't have to do the sharing thing, but I was definitely not a fan. It was a good value for sure, and we were only in Bath for two nights so it was alright, but I'd advise paying a bit more and staying somewhere nicer.

Some of the things, like the less-than-spotless bathrooms and dated sinks in the rooms, are to be expected in a place like this. I was NOT impressed by the fact that you have to pay extra for towels. What possibly disappointed me the most is that there are NO plugs in the rooms. I'm surprised this is legal, I'm not sure if this was the case in all rooms, but it definitely was in mine. I had to go to the dining room to charge anything.

The whole place didn't smell very good.

The breakfast was... fine. It wasn't too gross, if you stuck to the yogurt and toast and jam. The hot food was sort of scary.

The location was definitely good.

The plug thing really bothered me, but the room was clean enough, the beds were comfortable enough, and it was quiet enough. So it's alright since it's so cheap, but for a longer stay, I'd advise somewhere else.

We had the unfortunate experience of staying in the 10 bed mixed dorm in late November 2011. The room was smelly and the beds were old with felt dirty. While our doormates were very quiet, the thin windows meant that we found it hard to sleep with the noise coming from outside. One of the lights in the room was broken and the lockers downstairs were out of order. Overall, it was the worst accommodation of my 3 month long trip! I wouldn't return...

My daughter and I spent one night in this hostel in early February and had a 14-bed dorm room to ourselves. The hostel is very much like an American university dormitory and all the facilities are modern. Lockers are available on the ground floor but not in the dormitories. The staff was very pleasant and we enjoyed our brief stay. For a hostel, the price is a bit steep but still a bargain compared to other accommodations in Bath. A decent continental breakfast is included. It is just a short walk from the major sights and the train station. I would definitely recommend it for a short visit.
