The Best Hostels In The UK

Here are some of the best hostels in the UK that are perfect for anyone on a Working Holiday Visa.

Bristol Backpackers

Think Bristol Backpackers as a more luxurious version of UK backpackers’ night. This hostel on St. Stephens Street offers private rooms and dorms housed inside a Victorian building, complete with mullioned windows. It has a bar and guitar lounge, with more bars at the waterfront that is just a 4-minute walk away. Guests can enjoy free WiFi.

Bath Backpackers

If you’re heading out to Bath, you should book a room at the Bath Backpackers. It features mixed and single-sex dorm rooms set inside a Georgian house that is located in the city centre. Bunk beds can sleep 4 to 10 people, with everyone provided with free bed linen, internet access, and tea and coffee. While other hostels only offer common amenities, Bath Backpackers have a soundproof party room.

Globe Backpackers

Are you looking for adults-only hostel that will not break your budget? The Globe Backpackers will suit your budget needs and more. With private rooms and mixed dorms housed in an 18th-century townhouse, it is one of those backpackers nights that will teach you a bit of history. It is not very far from the Exeter Central railway station, the University of Exeter and the main hub of the city. It features a communal kitchen that can be used 24/7, dining room and TV lounge, and, best of all, unlimited hot water showers.

London Backpackers

Located in Queens Road and just a minute-walk away from the Hendon Central Tube Station, London Backpackers is a hostel that offers female-only and mixed dorms, making it an ideal choice if you are searching for girl-only rooms. Some private rooms are also available, giving backpackers a variety of choices. Accommodation is cheap and breakfast is free.

Oxford Backpackers

Found on a main street in Oxford’s west end, and just a 5-minute walk away from the Gloucester Green coach station, Oxford Backpackers is livelier than some hostels. It offers female-only or mixed dorm rooms with linens, towels, WiFi and 24/7 keypad access plus free lockers. Continental breakfast is also offered daily at no extra charge. Other facilities include a large communal kitchen, secure bike storage, laundry service, and a pub with a pool table and a large screen that shows movies and live sports.

There is something quite exciting about backpacking in the UK, especially if the only chance that you’ll get to do it is on the duration of your working holiday visa. When you leave the UK, you will surely have plenty of great memories to bring home with you.
