Bath Backpackers Hostel
Travel Blogs from Bath
So after waking up in the hostel and regrouping, we had a look around Cardiff town which according to the others looked better all lit up at night, we stopped in at the Castle (were too cheap to pay for it though..), bought some christmas jumpers, had lunch at Weatherspoons, saw the wall which animal statues (monkeys, tigers, birds- pretty amazing …
So after driving for a bit after leaving Stonehenge and we though it was time to something else. so when we saw a tourist sign to Stourhead we decided to follow it even though we had no idea what it was.
WOW!! These gardens are lurvely. If you get a chance you gotta come here.
Now I wish we had followed the earlier sign to Drogo Castle - found out latter that would have been pretty nice too.

I am not a princess and can rough it like the best of them. However if there is Hell on earth this is it. Its a dump. A loud, dark, dirty pit. Id rather sleep on a park bench. No lights in the hallway on the top floor nor a bathroom on that floor either. The bathrooms on lower floors had no window covering so neighbors can watch you do your business. Showers are in a dark cold basement in an area that looks like straight out of a psycho film. My sister in law and I would not go alone. The hostel night club had rowdy loud people until daylight approached. No curfew given by the hostel nor respect for people who really want to sleep. Rude staff members and no free breakfast not that I would even want to cook or eat with their facilities. GROSS. I understand the building itself is old, but it smells, carpets have stains and the whole place just needs an upgrade. For it being the most central and convenient hostel in Bath I have no doubt they make decent money. There is no reason this place should not have been upgraded a long time ago. I would NEVER recommend this place, nor will I even remotely make it an option for my Bath return. I would rather spend an extra $60 and stay somewhere decent even if it does make me walk an extra few minutes to main attractions.
