  • I absolutely loved this hostel! The staff was extremely helpful & friendly! The beds were perfect & had a curtain to draw so no one can look in your bun. The shower rooms were a bit small for getting dressed in but the actual showers were wonderful. There's a pub at the bottom of the hostel which is really nice to hang with locals & it doesn't stay open late so you can actually get some sleep! The hostel is in a quiet part of the city and is really close to London bridge underground station!

  • Beds were comfy, pub downstairs was great but not a traditional one, but the breakfast and meals were nice. Location is tucked away, but helps keep noise down. Some interesting characters hanging around but all the staff were super nice and helpful.

  • Amazing. These guys went above and beyond what they needed to. As soon as I walked through the doors I felt safe and comfortable. They were able to answer any questions I had and were super friendly! Excellent location, easy to get anywhere, and the staff was very willing to help direct you where you needed to go. They even lent me the umbrella I forgot to pack... Oops. If I ever come back to London, this will definetly be the place I stay.

  • We know the price is great for the location, so how about the rest? Bed was quite comfy in the private room, which has its own key and is secure. Nice to find that pitcher of cold water refilled in mini-fridge. The two showers are shared so there may be some waiting in the morning. Bathrooms might need some TLC but there was hot water most of the time. Lots of nearby nightlife so yes there will be noise in the streets. Handy to have the pub downstairs for a pint and chat on the way in or out.

  • The staff was amazing and I was even able to go out with some of the young people who work there. The hostel is in a very good location for going out or seeing the sights near London Bridge. I highly recommend booking this hostel if you go to London.
