10/10 Exceptional

A good choice
It's a posh YHA at post YHA prices...but still a really good choice for families in a touristy part of the world. Our bunks were ready made and comfortable. Clean, modern design with well equipped kitchen. Easy parking and supermarkets close by. Would stay again.

6/10 Good

Basic but ok if you want a cheap get away
Very basic accommodation but not too bad. We were disappointed with the cleanliness of the bathroom, there was lots of hair from other guests left over on the floor and walls. Beds were comfortable and the linen was fresh.

Cotswold YHA
In centre of beautiful historic market town of Cirencester yet very quiet and peaceful. Really friendly, helpful staff. Very clean following all Covid guidelines. In short walking distance of Roman and Norman sites, friendly pubs, restaurants, cafes and great shopping. Wonderful selection of markets - farmers, crafts, flea. Modern facilities in restored historic building. Can't praise it high enough. Would definitely stay again.
