  • Is car parking available ?

    Good morning dear guest, unfortunately we don’t have any parking facilities belonging to us, but you do have two options: - If it’s only for the evening/night time, there are some free parking spots available on Cripley Road, a few meters away from our hostel. It’s free from 6.30pm and until 8am in the morning, plus you can have two hours of free parking during the day – in case you arrive a bit earlier or need to leave a bit later. - If you are not lucky enough to find a spot in there on your arrival, you can always use the SeaCourt Park’N’Ride, located a mile away from our hostel. The post code is OX2 0HP, in case you need to Google it. On the way back to us you can either have a 15 minutes walk or take the bus number 400, which will leave you 50 meters from us – the bus service runs until 11.40pm Monday to Saturday and until 7.30pm on Sundays. The cost of the parking is £4 for a day. Hoping this helps, and looking forward to welcoming you in the hostel. Best regards Maria team member Yha Oxford
