Located in a good area, lockers with safes, which I've never been to a hostel that has that. Coded door entry, and cameras everywhere. Close to the Earls Court tube station, and getting there after a long flight is really easy. The staff are really nice, and they're actually invested in making sure everything is running smoothly as opposed to some of the other ones I've been to. The bathrooms are really nice, and pretty clean. Only suggestion.. Curtains on the beds!!

Incredible hostel overall. Great staff, great rooms, great people to hang out with, etc. The value for London as well is amazing. Very close to the tube station so it is very easy to get around.

The hostel is pretty close to the station and close to a lot of services which make it easier when at night you want to grab a burger or a beer. It was clean all the time, even though we were six in the bedroom the bathroom was really clean. I like the atmosphere since there is only one living room and one big table in the kitchen which makes you feel that you are among your friends and of course makes it easier to meet the people who is staying there.

Great staff, great rooms, and great atmosphere. Do yourself a favor and stay at the Barmy Badger! Lockers, kitchen, wi if included. You'll be close to many main attractions but are on a quieter part of town. Not a party hostel. Common kitchen and living room are nice for relaxing and meeting new friends.

Best hostel I've stayed in yet, great staff and huge lockers in the room with a safe inside. Location is great, within Zone 1 of the underground so travel was cheap

It really is a lovely hostel. It's so far above the standard the rest of London sets in pretty much every possible way. Great beds, more power points than needed, free wifi, free tea / coffee, friendly staff etc...

The staff were all very helpful, friendly and smiling. The bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and even if occupied, each floor has an additional communal bathroom. The common area is cozy and the kitchen is well set out. I have stayed in a number of hostels in London and this is the best one yet!

Well located. Some simple touches in the room ( comfortable beds, and power stations) which made the quick business trip enjoyable and convenient. I did not have time to enjoy the lounge, so I cannot talk to the atmosphere.

Excellent staff, very helpful. Location right near station and easy to get around London. Great eateries nearby. Long term dormers adds a 'family' feel to it.

A great hostel, and exactly what I needed for a quick stopover and rest. The staff were super friendly and I loved the bunk beds with the shelf, light, charging points, big lockers and space for large bags under the beds. The bathrooms were also lovely, though the shower was quite small in the female 4 bed dorm - but there's an ensuite attached to each room so the other rooms might be better. There's also breakfast of cereals, toast, tea, coffee included.

I really enjoyed staying at this hostel: it is very well located, the bathroom and the room were very clean, extremely friendly staff, beds are comfy, large and have a lamp - that's brilliant! The only thing I would improve is breakfast - you could add some more stuff there :) But other than that - great job! I would definitely stay there again.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for choosing to stay at the Badger. We are so pleased that you really enjoyed staying with us, like our cleanliness, our extremely friendly staff and our comfy beds with the personal lamp! Our free breakfast has fruit, cereal, toast, Nutella, etc, but if we added croissants, ham, cheese, eggs, etc, we would have to start charging - we try to provide as much as we can for free! Safe onward travels from all of us here :)

This is the best hostel I've ever stayed in when I've been in London. It was five minutes walk from Earl's Court station, the staff were super helpful and friendly, the facilities were excellent, everything was very clean and the price was extremely reasonable. Very highly recommended!

I really liked the kitchen, cereals and toast for breakfast, the mix of people staying longer periods of time and only for one or a couple of nights. 4 persons female dorm was small, not really much room for towels etc.
