  • I like Palmer house as a senior traveler. The location is good, close to the center of London by the Underground, but not as intense. The beds in the dorms have a very nice feature as they have curtains you can use to close off the bed into a cozy personal sleeping pod. Breakfast is good and I always feel welcomed here. I have stayed before....will stay again.

  • Very cute, friendly hostel with great facilities. It is in a good location off the yellow tube line, walking distance to Swiss Cottage Tube station. I thought the area was very quaint and nice. Only a 10 minute ride to all the main attractions which is decent for London. The atmosphere was very nice, and they had a bar downstairs which adds a nice social setting. The showers were very modern and clean which you don't see very often at hostels ;)

  • Clean. Near to London's underground. A little noisy during evening, but we really had a good time.

  • Bathrooms were too small and too few for the number of guests. The showers were also quite difficult to use (push button style set to one temp). Breakfast was nice each morning and the lounge was very inviting.

  • Had an amazing time and met some amazing people here, just wish their was some way to politely tell people in a dorm room to shut up at 7am after a really really late night

  • Level of service you'd expect rom a £10 hostel, but for £31 (including the £1 debit card surcharge that they have to add for some reason) - luckily I only had to stick around for one night. Very uncomfortable, dirty, one very rude staff member. Location's a bonus, but there are better hostels.

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
