We parked at Seacourt park and ride, caught the bus to the YHA, and from there were able to walk everywhere. The room was clean and perfect for our needs, there was wi-fi in the bar area and...

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.

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....

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 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...
