YHA Oxford is brilliantly located beside Oxford train station, on Botley Road close to the River Thames, and is just a short stroll into the heart of the city. It is a purpose built hostel with 203 beds. The modern reception has a café bar offering refreshments after a long journey and is a great place to relax and meet fellow travellers, as well as catching up with e-mails or watching big sporting events on the TV. You can even take your drinks out into the back garden on a sunny day!

Facilities include a restaurant, a kitchen for those wishing to cook for themselves, laundry room, a peaceful library, lounge with pool table and luggage room to store bags before check-in or after check-out.

Cyclists are welcome with a good-sized locked  cycle shed and plenty of space on the back patio to fine-tune their bike. YHA Oxford is ideal for backpackers, families, individuals and groups looking to explore the unique history of the city.

YHA Oxford is a three storey hostel with a lounge, quiet room, restaurant, self-catering kitchen, luggage and laundry rooms on the ground floor. There are three accessible rooms with 3, 4 and 6 beds located on the ground floor.

Most rooms are situated on the 1st and 2nd floors (unfortunately we do not have a lift). Room sizes range from 1 to 6 beds with a number of twin and double rooms available, plus plenty of small rooms that can be booked for private use by families and groups of friends. There are 203 beds in total.


YHA Oxford serves a hot and cold buffet breakfast to give you a great start to the morning - we serve from 7:30am until 9:30am, and right up to 11am on weekends. Breakfast is now available at 10% off - ONLY WHEN PRE-BOOKED (in-hostel price: £5.25). Simply add it to your basket at check out to save!


We can provide a packed lunch including a freshly prepared sandwich, a delicious cake, cereal bar, a bottle of mineral water, a packet of crisps and a piece of fresh fruit. Eat in the hostel or take your packed lunch with you to enjoy during your day of exploring.


There is a café bar at reception serving hot and cold drinks and sandwiches open 24 hours a day. Our Metro restaurant is open every day from 5pm to 9pm offering a range of hot meals, snacks, salads and desserts, all prepared to order by our friendly catering team. We're open to the public so pop in for a bite!

Kids Eat Free

One free children's meal is available per adult main meal from the main menu when purchased at the same time. This offer is not available on breakfast.


We serve beers, ciders, wines and spirits from 11am until 1am at night - so join us for a drink and make some new friends. Or warm up with some coffee (and cake!) or a delicious chilled fruit smoothie on our patio outside.

Self-Catering Facilities

Our fully-equipped kitchen has four fridges, one freezer, three ovens, a microwave, a toaster and a kettle. We've got all the pots, pans, cutlery and crockery you'd have at home too.

If the weather is fine, you can enjoy your meal outside as we have seating there as well as in the restaurant.
