The staff is the best. I felt so welcomed and the hostel had a cozy, social aspect to it. Managing a shower or restroom was sometimes difficult but that comes with the hostel territory. They are close to the underground however once going around London I realized the location is sort of out of the way. Plus none of the bars in that area are really open that late in comparison to other areas (11-11:30). But overall I felt very comfortable staying there.

The Barmy Badger was a great hostel! The staff are all extremely friendly (including their very cute dog!) and helpful and the space is clean and well organized. The Earl's Court area is great for going both into and out of the city (assuming you are flying into or out of Heathrow, or taking a train from St. Pancras), and the Picadilly Line (tube line at Earl's Court) easily changes to all other major lines in the city.

Barmy Badger was perfect for my few days in London. The rooms were secure (lockers were a perfect size and felt quite safe), doors locked automatically, good access to light and outlets and large windows served as air con on hot summer days. Front desk staff was warm and welcoming and knowledgable about public trans, places not to miss, etc. Kitchen and backyard area were quite pleasing. Thanks again!

Very good stay at the barmy badger. Staff were lovely, very relaxed vibe. A lot of long term borders so a bit more quiet at night then other hostels I've stayed in.

Very friendly and helpful staff. And they and the other guests took the 11:00 p.m. quit time seriously -- important to us as we were under the weather.

Great little hostel, perfect company and (surprisingly) comfortable little beds. Fab location, easy to get to and from with public transport. Would definitely go back :)

The staff are so friendly and welcoming and I really appreciated the kitchen, outdoor courtyard, and TV room. Would seriously recommend this place. If you are traveling alone and want to meet people--go into the kitchen to make food or hang out in the courtyard outside in the early evening!
