Oxford Backpackers is the only Independent Hostel in Oxford with its own fully licensed, on site BAR, FREE wifi and FREE breakfast! Ideally located near the centre of town. It is only a 2 minute walk to either station from the Hostel. Now that's central!

Being so close to the centre of town means that you are within easy walking distance to all of Oxford's amazing architecture, world famous Universities, pubs, clubs, canals, theaters, cinemas and great shopping arcades. If you want to get out into the countryside to see the Cotswolds or the amazing Blenheim Castle, then jump on a bus at the station and you're there. Oxford Backpackers is still the biggest and the best independent hostel in Oxford. We have been providing the best value, fun, clean and safe accommodation in Oxford for over 10 years, and it remains our mission to continue to provide this for our customers. Accept no substitutes!!!!

We are equipped with 24 hour internet access, fully stocked and rocking late night bar, laundry facilities, self catering kitchen, pool table, phone and fax service, and a big jobs board (cos' once you get here you just might want to stay a while longer!). And if you do feel tempted to stay longer, ask about our great weekly rates. When that sad moment comes when you have to check out, free Breakfast provided to say au revoir!

ALSO NEW 2.5m BIG SCREEN, providing entertainment for organised Movie nights with FREE pop corn, and any other major Sporting/TV event.

New Key pin access installed on all dorm doors for your added security.

FREE use of towels should you need!
FREE city map on check in!
FREE entry into local nightclubs and discount drinks pass!
