Super tolles englisches Essen. Das Beste von allen 11 Hostel´s die wir besucht hatten. Die Lage sehr romantisch - da kann man verstehen das hier Shakespeare seine Werke geschrieben hat.

Mein Bett war sehr unsicher (wackelig). Auf die Anfrage ob wir ein anderes Zimmer bekommen könnten, und wir auch etwas dazuzuzahlen, kam von der sehr jungen blonden Frau an der Rezeption kein Entgegenkommen. Diese Intolleranz habe ich in den anderen 10 Hostels nicht erlebt. Schade! Das englische Essen war sehr hervorragend. Dies hatten wir in London und in Dover leider nicht. Ein "Super Daumen Hoch" an den Koch. Behalten sie dies bitte bei, denn das macht England gerade für mich/uns interessant.

Lovely place, helpful staff. Name is misleading, as it is two towns over from sua (fine with bus, hard on a sunday). Really great dinner.

Dear YHA-Team, overall it´s been a nice stay - as far as I can tell from staying just one night. The only real downside to the Stratford-upon-Avon house is it´s location. But I am sure, you are already aware of the lack of public transport to and from the hostel and I presume, there´s not much to do about it. Still, it´d be nice to clarify this online in advance. Cheers.

Using the shower means you will inevitably flood the entire bathroom floor. There is no step between shower space & rest of room so the water goes out, not down. Also not enough hooks so nowhere to put clothes and towel. Very silly design. Usual problem with no one understanding/using the recycling bins as intended. Otherwise nice hostel in lovely setting. A tiny bit far from town but easy enough to get to on the local bus.
