YHA Oxford

The YHA Oxford was not the best hostel I stayed at and was a little disappointed that they didn’t provide towels when booking a private room.  While I didn’t pick the hostel for anything more than a place to sleep the night I expected something better than what I experienced. The room was cold at night and the blankets were not warm enough so I ended up getting sick after spending the night here.  The windows were also not well soundproofed enough as the hostel is right by a major Oxford train station.

The hostel staff seem unmotivated to help and had more interest in having their own private conversations that helping guests.  Also this hostel was a little bit more expensive compared to other hostels I’ve stayed at and next time I’ll probably just opt for a cheap hotel room.

I stayed here in November 2013 in a Twin Private Ensuite

First got my exposure to the web in 1994 and well been kinda addicted to it since then, and finally made the career decision to jump in the deep end in 2007 by starting my own digital marketing agency. From there I've consulted with some of the biggest brands and agencies in Australia, spent 3 years working as SEO Product Manager for Marktplaats.nl & 2dehands.be (ebay classifieds group) but now located in London working for Schibsted Media Group.
