This hostel was awesome!

Excellent hostel, only thing, some other hostels already have beds made. Not wanting to sound lazy but if you arrive late wanting to have a good rest, then this may represent a bit of a delay and extra work. Other than that it is excellent!

Employees are great. Very helpful. Good location for the price. Good facilities and clean bathrooms. Not much of an atmosphere due to the amount of people who live in the hostel

Thank you for your review and for choosing to stay at the Badger. We are so pleased you liked our location, price, facilities, cleanliness and our staff helpful! We only have a limited number of beds for long term guests, so when the hostel is quiet it can seem like more. Safe onward travels from all of us here.

A great hostel with two awesome dogs! The dogs do not bother people, but they are fun to play/ hang around with. Great kitchen and an ok breakfast. More than anough bathrooms are availabe and the owners have good ideas for some London-visits. I had a great stay with you.

the hostel was gery good for single female travelers. It was my first time in london and I found out that I made a wise choice. Hostel is just 5 mins from tube Earls court. and you can even walk to kensington and hydepark in half an hour. The room was warm enough and the beds were the best ones i have ever had in a hostel. Bathroom can be cleaner but it was also due to roommates. Breakfast is ok, bread nutella fruits coffe tea and all the facilities you can use, I totally recommend this h

Excellent if you want easy acess to Heathrow and/or Gatwick airports. Good installations, clean and quiet location, not exactly on the center but close to good restaurants, services and the metro. Only take care because it's an four floors house and it may be hard to carry heavy lugagges up the top, there are no lifts.

The Receptionist was very welcoming and helpful, the hostel is located in an OK area with the underground very close and a lot of shops. It was a quiet hostel and clean. Good value for London as well.

Barmy Badger is probably the best hostel in London if you want to feel comfortable and have a good time. The staff, specially Monika, are really nice.

Very good hostel. 4 minute walk to the Piccadilly line stop Earls Court and therefore very accessible from Heathrow. Very nice staff. Should have a dishwasher in the kitchen though. We enjoyed ourselves.

We felt than an extra fridge was better than a dishwasher so that people had more space to store their food. Safe onward travels from all of us at the Badger.

Lovely hostel with great staff. This was our first ever hostel experience and everything was top form. Very big fan of the free tea and coffee! Only downside of this hostel was that we were on a room on the first floor, this mean't that we could hear the people who had been staying long term up till very late hours, which made it difficult to sleep. Other than that there was no other problems

A great hostel. 5 min walk from Earls Court Station. Night bus drops you off a few mins walk from the front door. Museums-15 mins walk. Own locker (tho bring your own lock) with a programmable safe. No curfew as you get the door code. Free wifi, large kitchen & TV room-great for meeting new people. Friendly & helpful staff - always had a smile & time for a chat - not like so many places where you feel like they just want to make a buck off you & send you on your way.Will stay again :) :) :)

I enjoyed staying at Barmy Badger Backpackers that I cancelled my reservation at the hostel I have been staying at for the last 3 years when I visit London, and extended my stay at Barmy Badgers. The location is perfect -very central, safe and has a buzz of it's own. There is a huge variety of restaurants,cafes, pubs and supermarkets to choose from. The Hostel- very comfortable, clean,cozy and efficiently run.The staff - super friendly, warm and helpful. Great place to meet fellow travelers.
