    The YHA Oxford hostel surpassed all of mine and my three friends' expectations. Good building, game room, coffee, etc. The room was nice and clean. Plenty of outlets for everyone's phones. Everything was top notch, and we had a great time staying here.

    Great staff who were very friendly and helpful. The hostel was very clean and tidy and overall very good value for money It's very close to the Railway Station and City Centre. Lovely breakfast and plenty of it.

    We stayed in Oxford last Saturday night after going out for supper and the theatre. It was very convenient and comfortable. We heard the trains but it was not a problem. We sat in the reception area and bar and enjoyed a bottle of wine afterwards. The bed was comfortable and warm and the showers and loo were very clean. We used the park and ride at Seacourt Tower which was very convenient

    Generally it was okay - but throughout the whole building, the inexplicable chemical product smell prevailed, which was very off putting. I strongly advise you either to change the cleaning product or to take any procedure to eradicate this bad smell.

    I don't normally stay in youth hostels this was a friends idea for a cheap weekend away for a reunion! The hostel is centrally located right next to the train station just minutes walk from shops, bars and restaurants. The are a selection of room types and due to being a large group we got to see a few. Some with 2 bed, 4 beds and 6. All were good (basic) but clean and comfortable all you need bed, and ensuite toilet and shower. If you compare the price to a holiday inn or travel lodge very good accommodation. Great bar and social area with pool table and tv.

    Ideally located for study trips to Oxford and surroundings (train and bus station, city centre and colleges all within walking distance). YHA Oxford provides good food and a meeting room for class activities. Staff very friendly and helpful.

    I had a single room with a shared bathroom for two nights when I was visiting Oxford. All in all everything was fine, the staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was quiet. In fact, many families were staying at the time, which was good for me, as I wasn't looking to party. The shared bathroom was alright but it could have a better draining so that the bathroom is not all wet after a morning shower. Breakfast costs 5.75£ and is a reasonable value for money.

    We use YHA's around the country on any off site activities minimum 3 per year. Good valve, great accommodation, students can get internet which keeps them happy and helpful staff. When you know what your going to get, why go anywhere else.

    If you choose to stay in very reasonable price with clean and modern accomodation yes it is the place. In Oxford for backpacker YHA is the best. The room is very secure and inside the room they have own bath room and toilet instead of the toilet and bathroom outside. The Lobby itself big and comfortable and they have 24 hours reception. As the wi fi not available inside the room so the Lobby is the place. They also offer very good breakfast with only 5 pound and if you want to grab something there is a kebab stall in front of the hostel until late in the evening. The location only a short walk from railway however if you arrive with coach, you nedd to walk bit far. The hostel doesnt have a lift so if you carry a heavy luggage should consider about it.

    It's just a hostel for a night. The place is correct (near the railway station), at ten minutes to the center of the city. It was clean, tidy and with free wifi. The recepcionists were nice and helps us in our day in Oxford and how to travel to other cities.

    I stayed in one of the 6-bed rooms for two nights. The room and bath were very clean and comfortable, the lounge was also very nice. The breakfast was very agreeable as well and the staff was very helpful. I really can't think of anything negative to say about it.

    Good facilities and spacious dorms. Shower was blocked, leading to an interesting fragrance. And I could only get wifi in the library. Would stay again though. Liked the individual charging ports and lights by each bunk.

    Stayed at this hostel a couple of times now and its still the best so far. Very neat and close to the train station which happens to be next to the city center and bus station. There is a bar opposite which doubles as a top Chinese restaurant with every budget accommodated trust me. A walk to the city center will offer you household names shops and diners/restaurants/eateries, night clubs/bars, historic sights and many more. If you are staying in Oxford, choose YHA irrespective of budget.

    The hostel is well situated, close to the raillway and bus stations and a 10 minute walk into the centre of Oxford. The rooms are basic, however, serve their purpose. A great value buffet breakfast, hot and cold. The reception area is pleasant with a small bar and serves snacks and various drinks. The staff were very pleasant. No parking, however, seacourt park & ride is a short walk/ bus ride away.

    We all heard about this fabled city, set amid the rolling hills nearby... to stir our curiosity and our hopes... This small town is fully pedestrianized, encouraging us to walk everywhere and view the old colleges, tea-shops and meadows. Many of the colleges have walled gardens and enclosed lawns for the 'Fellows' -- as exclusive domains. But you can still glimpse these garden sanctuaries from the open gates and top-level of tour buses (excellent value)... Everywhere are streams and greenery to soothe and instill meditation, reflection and peace... But Oxford has much changed, from when it was a religious center for scholars and the clergy. Now it is very busy, like London -- with masses of visitors and students, crowding the streets and the pubs/cafes... Of course it is also a delight to wander the quieter lanes and wonder: what if, how come and why not...??? The old 'Eagle and Child' still functions, long after CS Lewis and Tolkien departed; but the food is not plain fayre anymore and students have pushed out the senior common-room types... There is no seclusion and rest anymore -- because it's now a major attraction for lots of folk, scholars and commoners alike. But the charm is preserved by the stalwarts and it's still open to savour the rarefied ideals of past and present...

    This hostel ticks all the boxes - close to Oxford station, clean, warm and the rooms are fairly spacious WITH ENSUITES! YAY! The kitchen is a nice size and there is a restaurant available so you can by dinner and breakfast for a reasonable price. Being right near the station does mean the trains are quite loud when they go through, but other than that it is fairly quiet. It is approximately a 5 minute walk to the centre of town, and about 10 minutes to grocery shops. Wifi only in common areas. A nice hostel, would definitely recommend.

    I stayed for 2 nights at this great value youth hostel. The location is superb if you want to be central. It's right next to the train station (you can see it as you pull in), and within a few minutes walk of the city centre for shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. The welcome on arrival was good, although I would have liked to have been given a bit more information about the facilities in the hostel and where to find them, and to have been asked if there was anything else they might have helped me with during my stay. There is a good value cafe bar in the hostel serving hot food, sandwiches, pastries and a range of drinks for reasonable prices. It has free Wifi and is comfortably furnished. For residents there is also a kitchen so you can self cater, a lounge, luggage storage and a library. All residents areas are secured and only accessible with your key card. I had a private ensuite room which was great value. It could have done with being a bit cleaner. Don't expect any frills. Bedding is provided (a duvet and pillow) but no towels/toiletries etc. You can buy or hire anything else you might need. There was no clock or phone in the room and the Wifi didn't stretch that far! There was a TV and bedside light, a small desk and wardrobe and bedside drawers. Noise levels were okay. I got woken up both nights by people talking outside my room but earplugs solved the problem! I wasn't disturbed by the trains. I would definitely stay again. A great option if you're on a budget!

    This was a long time I didn’t get back to a hostel. At first, it looked quite ok, but the came the nightmare! 6 people on the room, yet 2 people snearing whereof one 10 times badder and louder than a f** pig. So I left the hostel at 3h30am back to London. When arriving down at the reception, I complained at the night receptionist which seemed to be the night manager too. I asked for a refund, and of course a confirmation that this would be handled as quickly as possible. But what a unprofessional service. First, he told me he couldn’t send this to my email as well because “no possibility for that”, so I told him to print out, right? He didn’t know to write a complain letter (look at the text in the attachement) and you, as a customer, have to tell the staff what to do in this case. Also I was told nothing could be done because I booked on and trying to find other good excuses for no refund. Let’s if I get that refund finally after my complain and this review. Anyway it’s not worse to stay here.

    Came here on a road trip of the South of England. Has all the facilities you would need for a good price. The hostel is also well situated, it's about a 20 min walk from the centre, there is a waitrose 10 mins down the road and an off licence a couple of mins away for any emergency milk buying!
