The property is in a wonderful location where you can go for relaxing walks, and you are close to the Bicester Shopping Village and other Costwolds villages.

The hostel is very friendly and the staff are happy to help with anything people might need. The use of towels and a hairdryer and other facilities for no extra charge was a great bonus. Rooms were clean and secure. Would definitely stay again.

Actually the property looked beautiful; clean, bright and comfortable. However that is of no use if your booking is not honoured. The integrity of this owner that was totally absent.

This is a proper place for real backpackers who enjoy their travel. I love its hot water facility and common room. I would darely like to recommend travelers who explore one of the oldest cities in Britain.

The staff are really nice and location is very good. Not far from the railway station and is on the edge of University. Quite easy to find and has many restaurants & pubs around. Breakfast is not bad including cereals, toast, milk, biscuits,jam, peanut butter, basic but nice. One detail is that the lodge serves us with the sun pat peanut butter which is relatively more expensive compared to other brands haha:)

When we got there we realized that the hotel was far out of Oxford. When you book online you only get the 'four economy rooms' budget and would never stay here again. Also just to let you know they are doing renovations so was woken up at 7:30am. Also could hear the people next door, one talking and two doing up pants zipper.
