The house is nice and comfortable ,garden is beautiful and the staff was very nice
In the room need some hogh dusting ,the drowers was broken.there was noise when someone opened the water in other room.also the floor in the corridor make sound.and in the bed was lot of hair.The walls is very thin we could heard everything what happen in room before us .
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They even organized a little BBQ in the nice garden behind the house for the guests.
Really friendly staff. Good facilities. Everything is so clean!
The staff were really friendly. The facilities were very good, you can really see that they take pride in their business. I really enjoyed the time I spent here and wish I were likely to have the opportunity to return. The fun evenings of pancakes, and smoothies were very cool.
More bathrooms would be nice, but I can see how this would be impractical.
The workers are friendly and nice, they do their job very well.
noise floor. The floor is wood and a lot of noise when walking, morning people woke up the creaking of boards ago. The stairs to the room on the top floor are dangerous.
Friendly staff, good location, clean and well kept centre, lots going on and opportunities to meet other packers.
Computers and mobiles being used at night late into the morning in shared dorms, making it difficult to sleep.
Everything is good!
Literally everything. It was easy to find, clean and spacious, and the staff members were the nicest, most-helpful folks I've ever dealt with. We sat out at night around the campfire (portable fire pit, really) and chatted and had hot chocolate--we shall cherish the memory.
Great helpful staff, nice communal areas and activities every night
The evening events are a lot of fun. Love it!
The staff was very friendly. I had the feeling as if was part of a whole family. In the evening we had an event which everyone could attend. Inclusive the stuff was very helpful and you got a very warm welcome. I would recommend it to everyone who don´t dislike to share a room or a bathroom. Also for people who like to interact with others.
Great staff, they make you feel really at home. Would definitely recommend to the backpacker
Staff were very friendly and hospitable. Liked that they had a group dinner on Saturday evenings.
Room was clean and organized but there should be more than one bathroom for 9 people on the top floor.
The atmosphere was very friendly, the room was comfortable. The staff were amazing. I would recommend this place to anyone. Very safe environment. Only a short walk to town. There were children staying while I was there so very family orientated. I wouldn't recommend for party animals. I will definitely visit this hostel again, the best I've stayed in.
Close to both train station and the old city.
Nice and helpful staff; comfortable room.
Location might be a concern to sb go by foot, but not too bad. (About 10 mins to bus station; 15mins to centre
I loved staying at this hostel. It's one of the friendliest, welcoming places I've ever stayed at. Conveniently located, very friendly staff, cute little garden, free Wifi, clean rooms, free towel use, okay beds, affortable breakfast and loads more. Great value for money! Absolutely loved staying at this hostel and I will definately be back soon.
Staff were amazing from opening the door to the check out, by having a toilett inside the room made a difference for my staying.
They were refurbishing the place, scaffolding was outside the place& didn't give a very first good impression.
Very welcoming and friendly staff.
What a lovely hostel, more like a nice B&B. I wanted to get a London friend out of town and she had never been to Canterbury. I choose Kipps from the adds,and had been trying to get there for several years, hopefully I can return. Thanks for the cake and tea in the evening, a chance to visit with other guest.

The staff were fantastic
The staff member that greeted us was amazing very helpful as we need to book in early as we where going to wedding, She booked us a taxi for getting to the wedding venue and we had full use of the facilities. Very clean and comfy but basic but as we only needed a bed for the night I thought its was amazing value.
It is basic and toilet and bathroom are shared but it is a back packers place.
The friendliest and best equipped hostel I have visited. We were actually looking for a hotel at the last minute - and I am so glad that there were no rooms available in hotels! Our room overlooked the pretty garden, was well equipped and very comfortable. The breakfast in the morning, at £2, was great - and it was great to share it with the other guests. There were DVDs to borrow and a free barbeque whilst we were there. I would definitely come back.
The shower nearest our room was not very powerful
