The showers are scarce, and it's a bit grimy and battered, but this hostel is still beloved by budget travellers for bargain rates, a prime location, a friendly vibe and a 24-hour 'dungeon' (in truth a sound-proofed basement where you don't have to 'keep the noise down').
Bath Backpackers Hostel has both mixed and female-only dorm rooms, all with shared bathrooms and showers. Bed linen is included in the price, and there is central heating in all rooms.
Guests have free tea and coffee throughout their stay, and there is a shared kitchen for preparing meals. The shared lounge/common room has a large TV, and there is a bar on site. The shops, bars and restaurants of central Bath are within a 5-minute walk of the hostel.
Bath Abbey and the famous Roman Baths are 4 minutes' walk from the property. Bath Cricket Club Ground is a 5-minute walk away, across the river.
Please note that this property cannot accommodate stag or hen parties.
The property is unable to accommodate large groups, and as a result will not accept bookings for 5 or more guests. A security deposit of GBP 5 is required upon arrival for incidentals. This deposit is fully refundable upon check-out and subject to a damage inspection of the accommodation.
