Liked: The staff were super friendly and helpful, and I met lots of great people. It was really convenient to the train station and to all the places I needed to visit during my trip.

Disliked: Nothing really! - of course it was cramped being in a room with 9 other people, but that's what made it cheap! so I can't complain!

Liked: Close to the train station and town.

Disliked: The place was kind of dark and the staff seemed more interested in themselves than including guests in various activities. You can't drink in the hostel while the bar is open.

Liked: I liked that the sleeping rooms were separated from the communal areas - it kept the noise down!

Disliked: It is great that they offer an iron for guests to use - but it was in nasty shape and ruined my clothes.

Liked: There was much to like - a frenetic, crazy vibe which I did not exactly take part of but enjoyed nevertheless. Staff were efficient and friendly. Loos and showers were clean - no small thing in such a busy place.

Disliked: It is smack in the middle of noisy nightclubs, just like the other private hostel, Central Backpackers, in Oxford. There used to be a hostel further from town. Having said that, probably half the people in the hostel went out clubbing so for them it was evidently the perfect location.
