I did review before I booked the hostel. I was already mentally prepared to deal with a "below average" hostel because of the rating and reviews and the price(the cheapest in bath at the moment when i booked). I arrive at Bath early in the morning and left my luggage there with no hassle. Later on I only get back...

We stayed here as everything else was booked. The bathrooms were so dirty and smelled. The staff were friendly and location was good. It was not a pleasant stay and I would not recommend it to anyone.

We've stayed in a lot of hostels and know that you get what you pay for, but we've paid the same for much better hostels! The staff were friendly, and the laundry service was useful, beds were comfortable and linen was clean - that's the good. The bad: the pillows are SO THIN, i looked around and everyone in the...

I've stayed in hostels all throughout Europe at different prices, and have to say this was grim. The staff were very accommodating , but can't really polish a.. Shame really, it could do with a bit of money into the wash facilities and that alone would improve it so much. It's quite a nice old building, and the station and...

Staying in a backpackers is always to do with price and since Bath is an expensive place to visit, it can be the only option for some people. On a budget price you have to have budget expectations but this hostel had some major flaws. There were only 3 showers and they were in the basement. Our room was on...

It's a hostel... We were not expecting anything very fancy and it was just good, we spent 2 nights and we got a 3rd floor room, it was a 10 people room and it was not really a warm weather so I think we got lucky. Expect some noise (in a room with another 9 people) someone surely will get...

Bath Backpackers is located very conveniently a short walk from the railway station and coach station, right in the city center. However, this is about the only good thing about the hostel. The price was fairly cheap, but I would definitely recommend spending a bit more to get a better accommodation. The dorms are not very nice and there are...

The wifi here was hardly ever working except early in the morning before every one got on. It had a good kitchen with 2 stoves, many fridges, lots of utensils, but dishes were required to be washed and dried and the tea towels used were often dirty. In our room (Brutus) there was not enough power points and some were...
