St. Christopher's Inn Bath Reviews

The only 2 things going for it are great location, and lack of competition Oct 26, 2017
The scariest part about this is, I'd actually stayed in this very same hostel 12 years ago but apparently it was so bad I'd wiped it away from my memory. Having spent 4 nights here, I now know why...

I've never been a fan of hostels that also have a full service bar/restaurant in the ground floor because it usually means 2 things: so many locals frequent the place that it gets crowded, noisy and the overnight guests feel alienated. The second and bigger reason is that social and amenities space for the hostel guests is sacrificed to make more room for the bar. This hostel sadly ticks both of the above.

Let's start positive: the 3 things it has going for it are the great great location (about a km away from the railway station, very easy to find, less than 0.5km away from the city centre/Cathedral), great wifi access in the dorm rooms and the security (it's fairly safe, keycard access practically everywhere).

Everything else, sadly leaves a lot to be desired.

The hostel is very noisy. The bar's biggest clientele is the student community that has late booze nights even on weeknights. The hostel is at a major traffic junction with roads leading away from/to the city centre. So that means the party revellers are creating a ruckus till 3-4a, and the early lorry deliveries and honks start by 5am. With windows that don't completely shut and creaky beds, good luck getting any shuteye.

No kitchen - just a "social" room with a small fridge and microwave. They provide plastic cutlery and is hardly replaced when over.

Less number of bathrooms and toilets, plus one always seems to be "out of order". No dedicated place to refill water other than the bathroom sinks.

All in all, I would recommend this hostel only because.... well, i don't have a choice. You don't have any other this close by!

Congratulations on the featured review although I am sorry it was not to your liking. It is a shame about the lack of cooking facilities as I do like to cook occasionally when I am in a hostel.

St. Christophers do very well all over UK so they must appeal to a certain market but I shall certainly take your advice if I return there.
