Welcome to our hostel

Our modern group accommodation in Oxford is located right in the heart of everything, making it the perfect base for groups to explore all of the wonderful sights this lively and historical city has to offer.

In the surrounding areas groups will come across a wealth of educational and historical gems. To name just a few – the world famous Oxford colleges, the Ashmolean Museum, Blenhein Palace, the world famous Botanical Gardens and Christ Church College Meadows. Groups can embark on historical walking tours of the city and in the summer go on a group punting trip on the River Cherwell!

A particular favourite among school trips, the hostel is fully LOtC certified and offers teachers free familiarisation trips prior to booking, as well as range of exciting activities for students and one leader space free for every ten students staying. All rooms are fully equipped to accommodate groups of all sizes and types - with en-suite bathrooms, TV lounges, common rooms, classrooms and discounted attraction tickets sold at reception.

Groups of friends or family planning a city break to Oxford together - you’re also catered for. After a day of sightseeing and shopping, retire to the hostel and relax in the sunny gardens with an English tea and cake from the café bar.

If you’re thinking about a group trip to the centre of Oxford, send staff over an enquiry today and kick start your plans.

Please note, this is a city centre location, therefore there is the possibility of slight noise
