Excellent hostel! The staff were very helpful and friendly. My room was spacious, the beds were comfortable and had a personal reading light with usb port and power outlet and liked the big locker with safe inside. The hostel had a very relaxed and homeley feel and the dogs were adorable. Thank you and intend to stay again when back in London.

I love the Barmy Badger, I have stayed there several times and am looking to return in the near future. The beds are super comfortable, the shower rooms and toilets are clean. The kitchen is the heart of the house where you can meet people from all over the world. Free breakfast from 8 till 9:30 as well as Tea/coffee all day is a big thumbs up. The TV room in comfortable and relaxed. The only thing I would like to suggest is a power point in the female only dorm for hairdryers/straighteners.

This place has got to be one of the BEST hostels I have ever stayed in (& I've stayed in loads). Super location, helpful & friendly staff but most of all just a really homely & welcoming environment. The one thing this place seems to get perfect is the storage space: huge lockers with a mini safe in each one, as well as shelving, lights & powerpoints/USB ports on each bed & under bed storage also. Beds & pillows are super comfy! Huge well stocked kitchen & ace facilities! LOVED my stay :)

Fantastic location. It is less than 5 mins walk to Earls Court Underground, close to restaurants and pubs and within walking distance to museums. The hostel is for more 'older' (25+) travellers, so it is quiet and definitely not a party hostel, which is what I wanted. Staff are friendly, facilities are quite good, very comfortable beds. I would definitely recommend it to a friend and would stay again if I'm in London.

I stayed at this hostel for just a day. But I can say that this is the best hostel I have ever stayed it. Location is excellent. Staff is very helpful and friendly. In just that 1 day, we discussed some movies, watched TV together and also discussed about the cities we visited / wish to visit. The lockers are safe. Cleanliness is maintained. Only thing I cannot judge is the breakfast facility as I did not have breakfast here due to some work but I am sure it would be above average.

Great, affordable hostel in London! This is not a party hostel; everyone is very respectful and responsible. Staff is wonderful! The place is a bit on the older side, but the owner did say that they will be renovating come wintertime.
