My first English hostel Jun 03, 2013
This was the first time i had stayed in a hostel in England (i'm English) and it did not disappoint. I stayed here for 2 nights in a 12 bed mixed dorm for £22 (£11 a night). The price was very reasonable especially considering the location! Not only is it not far from the train station, it's also within the city centre.
I found the staff here to be really friendly. The girl at reception was someone who had grown up in Bath so knew the best places to go. I got in the habit of asking her where to eat every day! My favourite place she recommended was right opposite the hostel. It was a vegan place but the brownies were so good you forgot they were vegan after a couple of bites!
The hostel had a small loungey looking social area that was next to the kitchen. They had lots of books and games here for you to entertain yourself with. You couldn't help but feel at home here. And the kitchen was a good size and i could happily cook everything i wanted.
The room itself was quite standard with 6 bunk beds placed in a room. What was nice was that there were plugs spread out over the room but better than that, there were lockers in the room! Not massive ones so you wouldn't get your bag in there, but big enough for the important stuff.
The room didn't have showers, these were downstairs. They were not bad showers to use when you only had to use them for a couple of days. But while i was downstairs i noticed an abandoned looking bar area. Not sure if that ever gets used anymore!
Overall i was happy with my stay here and i'd happily stay here again :)

Decent hostel for cheap price Jul 14, 2008
If you're in Bath for only one night and want a cheap place to place, this is it. Hotels in Bath can be pretty pricey and limited and the few other hostels required at least min two night stay. The first receptionist I met wasn't helpful or friendly but overall the other staff were great. The place is small and has probably 2-3 dorm rooms on each floor. Rooms are clean although the bed aren't to comfy but it is a hostel after all. Free breakfast and sightseeing help. Also a plus is that its only a five minute walk from Bath train station. Overall I recommend staying here if you're not staying to long, but if you're gonna be there longer then check out St. Christopher's Inn Hostel.
