                        It was convenient and not too far from the city. The price was also decent.

                        The bathroom and also tv room could have done with a bit of attention for cleaning.

                        Attending my daughter's convocation.

                        Very basic amenities without provision of any bath towels. Did not feel safe while staying there as there were someone banging so hard at the windows as if trying to get in. Did not sleep after the disturbance

                        It was the best YHA I have ever stayed! Big clean room, high enough beds(cos some places you cant even sit up on the bottom bed), well-equipped clean kitchen, and not bad shower rooms with warm water. It was a bit far from the city center, but was cheap and good enough to cover up that point. Ill recommend this place :)

                        It was a bit inconvenient that we have to make a call when we need to talk to the reception staff.

                        The experience of staying in a dorm with other fellow students and the breakfast was good!

                        No staff were available during the day to see to my enquirys.

                        It was very cheap and clean!! I've never seen a hostel like that. Also the kitchen very useful and everthing clean.

                        It's a lovely building with nice features.

                        I don't normally stay at hostels, but I needed a short notice overnight and the local places were either ridiculously expensive for one night or fully booked. The dorm I stayed in was fully occupied, with guest moving in and out all night. I didn't really feel secure with my personal effect in the room and the lockers in the basement are a rip off considering you need to go in and out if your gear. It cost me about £5 to go in and out of the lockers and even then it's not really secure. The door to the smoking area was directly by the lockers and left open all night. An easy target for some one to enter and rob travellers.

                        Location is great, close to the city centre. Clean enough. The self-service kitchen is good.

                        Nothing dislike.

                      • Family with children

                        welcoming and very helpful instructions on reaching the hostel from (Malvena ?) Characterful

                        The cockroach in the basement wasn`t great in fact it was the first thing we came across on exploring the kitchen facility. Third stamp killed it (poor thing) but the experience put an immediate downer on our family experience of Canterbury YHA ! "That was a big beetle !" I said to the kids, but they could see for themselves.

                        Location and outside of building

                        Hotel; Carpark not marked out so we got boxed in. Room 2 Shower stained and wood door frame rotted. Door lock of room mad been broken and door very badly repaired. Safty sign dangerously broken and about to fall of door and hurt somone. YHA; overprices as no room tea making facilities. Bed matreses too cheep and thin.

                        * The receptionist was very kind to give me the key when I arrive late around 23.45 * There are lockers between 50 cents (the upper floor) and one pound (ground floor) * TV room with comfortable sofas * Kitchen facilities * 25 minutes walking from the train station

                        * You can only do the check in before 23.00 o'clock, otherwise you will sleep in the street (Check weekends!!) !!. I arrived at 23.40 and no one was there. Fortunately, the front door was open and they had a telephone at the entrance. I had to dial the emergency number to contact a member of the staff. The receptionist was sleeping in her place and told me that the check in was before 23.00. The nice thing I sent an email one week before my arrival saying that I would arrive late and I did not get any answer. I explained to her about my email, and although she was a bit angry she decided to come back to the hostel to do the check in. It was very kind of her to go back to the hostel at that time. I had to wait for her 30 minutes so I did not get my room until 12.30. They should mention that !! * There are no receptionists between 10 o'clock and 5 o'clock so be careful when you do the check out !! * The showers were not very clean, and the one in the upper floor did not work * Breakfast not included

                        Friendly personel, nice house, every basic need is covered, You shouldnt be toller than 1.80cm to fit in to the bed. So if you do not expect more, just want to sleep warm and safe, everything is fine.
