Does budget accommodation exist in Oxford?

by TRRK Online Now Apr 30, 2008 at 9:11 AM

I'd like to spend a weekend in Oxford in June but can't find any budget accommodation. Are there any cheap (around £50) B & B's, preferably walking distance to the train station? Everywhere I've found is quite expensive and all the hostels seem to only have dorm rooms rather than doubles.

Any ideas or do I need to forget about going to Oxford?

    50GBP is pretty much baseline for tourist-popular places in season (and Oxford is tourist-popular).

    However, using the search engine on:

    http://www.visitoxford.org/stay.asp

    (the official tourist info site) produced a b&b in the city at less than 50GBP for a 2-night stay in June (Park House).

    The YHA hostel in Oxford costs substantially less, and does offer separate rooms:

    You'll have to phone them to check availability/book (or do it through www.hostelworld.com)

    It's worth booking as soon as you find somewhere which is available and suits your budget, I think.
