Really impressed by improvements to common areas, esp. self-catering kitchen & bathrooms, but the shared dorm rooms still need some work (e.g. more powerpoints, more hooks to hang towels on, individual lights for each bed, consistent heating/room ventilation). The location out of down town was something I appreciated, as it meant it was quieter at night & a nice walk home each day.

Anche se l'ostello è posto in collina, si può ammirare dall'alto la bellissima Bath. Le sue case e la sua cattedrale. L'ostello è circondato da un bellissimo bosco, e la sua struttura ricorda quella di una fiaba. Ci sono tavoli in giardino, una cucina multi accessoriata e uno staff disponibile e affettuoso. Raccomandato per famiglie.

Wir hatten einen schönen Aufenthalt in der Jugendherberge. Die Mitarbeiter waren sehr nett, das Zimmer war okay, ein bisschen kalt, da die Fenster sehr undicht waren. Da unsere Buchung mit einer anderen vertauscht wurde, haben wir dann kurzfristig zum gleichen Preis ein Zimmer mit eigenem Bad bekommen und da wir ein bisschen auf das Zimmer warten mussten, haben wir für beide Tage unseres Aufenthaltes Frühstück aufs Haus erhalten. Das war echt super!

Bath ist eine wunderschöne Stadt. Daß Hostel ist sehr schön versteckt gelegen. Allerdings ist das Gebäude stark renovierungsbedürftig. Wir kommen wirklich mit sehr wenig klar, aber da war es zu viert schon sehr eng. Bei der Ankunft war das Zimmer leicht klamm, die Scheiben beschlagen. Das änderte sich aber sehr schnell nach ausreichender Lüftung. Das Personal ist sehr zuvorkommend und sympathisch. Für einen kurzen Aufenthalt von zwei-drei Tagen sehr zu empfehlen.
