The staff was very welcoming and showed us around when we arrived and explained how everything worked. the room (twin room) was of a good size and comfortable with all amenities needed (even toothpaste) and the shared shower had shower gel and shampoo too! The location is great only 10 minute walk from the centre and in a quiet area. we really enjoyed the good value breakfast (£3.50 - toasts, cereals, juices, hot drinks, crumpets, fruits, Nutella, ...) and were surprised by how clean and tidy the whole place was. Seriously this is much better quality than some hotels I have stayed at recently and who were charging much more money.
Maybe have access to the downstairs toilet at night as well, as my friend wanted to use the common toilet and someone was blocking it all night (being sick or drunk maybe) and there was no other option.
No lamps at the bunks, hard to see things when arriving at a time when the rest of the people in the room already had gone to bed.
Wonderful stay! Fell in love with the room, especially considering the price paid. Extreme value for money. Comfortable and very clean, perfect for two people. Can control heating and light comfortably. Shared bathroom but always very clean and available. Hot water and beautiful shower pressure which is very nice in the morning, and a heated towel rail too. Room always done up in the morning and tea/coffee/biscuits replaced. Highly recommended!
The walls are slightly thin but it was not disruptive or bothersome.
We had a fantastic stay at Kipps.. 6 girls sharing the dorm and found it excellent. Very warm welcome from staff and very well looked after. Would definitely recommend!! The beds were sooooo comfy!
I have stayed here once before many years ago and yet it is by far the best private hostel in the UK and I have stayed at many in the UK. The location is brilliant for those on foot easily accessible to Canterbury town centre. There is a local bus from the bus station stand A the Canterbury and Kent Hospital service a single price is £1.30 you need to ask for bus stop Prospect Place which is more or less outside the hostel.
