Yha Bath is really nice and quiet hostel situated on the top of the hill but easily accessible by buses from the city centre. Bathrooms are clean and beds comfortable. The living room is cosy with TV and sofas. Self-catering kitchen is well equipped and always clean. The staff is nice, especially Katarina who is absolute gem. Friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and...

I have stayed at Bath several times over the year, IMO it is one of the nicest hostels in the YHA chain. Very quiet and picturesque Roman villa type house in posh area with beautiful leafy gardens surrounding the place. Very clean rooms with well-equipped kitchen with about everything you need to prepare meals after work or going out. Good...

Our room was damp and noisy. We were in The Lodge which has 3 toilets and 3 showers for 50 people. It desperately needs modernising. The walls are paper thin, one toilet didn't work and the showers leak. We were next door to a toilet which kept us all awake at night. Our room was damp when we arrived then...

We paid £79.99 for one night's stay at this grubby place. The duvet was stained, as was the pillows and carpet. Couldn't wait to get away. Didn't feel like paying extra for towels, so skipped the shower. Glad we took a torch as dark once the main light was off, and of course no bedside lamp

Dear guest, Thank you very much for leaving a review. We apologise the bedding was not standard. We recommend that guest come to reception in order to give solutions to their problems. Kind regards,

Although it is up the hill, outside of Bath's main centre, it is still within walking distance to town. Take the canal path for a lovely morning/evening walk instead of the road. The recent renovations to the bathrooms & self catering kitchen are well done and much appreciated. The shared lounge is cosy & can get busy at times with...

Dear guest, Thank you very much for leaving a review. You did very well explaining our products. We rent towels at reception for £2.00 or you can bring your own. Also, the Skyline Walk can be followed close to the hostel. Kind regards,

Not expensive, clean, quite modern, comfortable beds and well heatedwith friendly staff. As with all hostels I would always bring ear plugs to ensure a peaceful night, we slept well and didn't have any issue with noise. Serves as a good base for the city, 20 minute walk into town (on a hill), frequent buses (10 minutes) if the walk...

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are glad you had a nice stay with us. To get to the hostel from the city centre you can take the buses U1, 17 and 18, from the Railway Station to the top of the hill. Kind regards.

Booked a couple of nights for a short stay in Bath. Our room was tidy, clean and just what we needed for a good night's sleep. The staff are friendly and the place is well organised, with a self-catering kitchen, communal areas and shared showers which were nice and clean. The place is up a small hill but if you...

I went to a YHA hostel for the first time and I think that sine this stay I'll choose this brand each time I'm going to UK. The rooms are very comfortable, you can decide to eat in their restaurant or cook yourself. The staff is very friendly and the lounge is a perfect place to play to Monopoly with...

Myself and five girlfriends were coming up to Bath for a night for a 50th birthday. We were on a bit of a budget, wanting to save money on accommodation to use on drinks, food and the spa! We booked a six bed ensuite bunk room for one night, it worked out at £22 each! Room was basic but clean,...
