Excellent London Hostel: my place of choice when I come to London. Clean. Helpful staff. Good kitchen. I don't like the three-tier bunk beds though. But they are made of wood, so they aren't as creaky as metal ones!

The neighbourhood is very nice and lots of stores and restaurants close by. The location is somewhat remote from central London, but if its location is where you need to be, I highly recommend it. One aspect that makes it very convenient is it has a clothes washer and dryer.

I very much enjoyed my stay. It felt like a home and was a great location to explore the city. The staff was very friendly. Just one word of warning - the front desk is closed in between 5:30 and 7:00 am, which you only see the warning for if you try to go to the desk during those hours.

This place can get pretty crowded. The tv room can fit 5 people comfortably, after that anyone who wishes to hang out in there will have to do so on the floor. Its a nice hostel, just don't expect to spend much time in there without the feeling of it being too crowded.

Thank you for your review and for choosing to stay at the Badger! We are glad that you found the Badger to be a nice hostel. Although new sofas and seats are arriving before Christmas, the Badger has always been a homely place where our communal areas are set up to be places where fellow guests can meet and talk to each other in a relaxed atmosphere (eg the large table in the kitchen rather than separate tables).

Very sympathic team, often clean hostel, nice kitchen. Hot and nice showers, small room but sufficient. I really recommend it, even if it is a bit expensive.

A great stay in a good location, the room overlooked the garden/ terrace area at the back so was nice and quiet. Both breakfast and kitchen area were good. Hostel staff helpful, friendly and welcoming. I will definitely stay again.

We enjoyed our stay, the room was basic but clean. It was quiet, staff were lovely. The only complaint is that we were told we would only share the bathroom with the other guests on our floor but people were coming up from other rooms and it was near impossible to try and jump in to be able to leave by 10am. Perhaps this could be made clear to future guests that they don't have free for all on bathrooms. Other than that, all was great and we would stay again and recommend you. Thankyou!

I loved the location, Close to the metro and near a lot of the gardens. The staff was the friendliest I have seen as well. Great place to stay on a tight budget.

Amazing place to stay, staff very friendly and helpful nothing is too much to ask. Loved the friendly atmosphere and the dogs. Rooms clean and tidy, liked the personal safe. Would recommend to a friend and will stay there again if in the area. Loved how relaxed it is, if looking for a place to stay in London highly recommended

I'm in love with the Barmy Badger! For sure the best hostel I've ever stayed! I was there with my boyfriend for 4 nights on a 6 bed mixed dorm. Clean rooms, awesome facilities and very friendly staff. Lockers and safes for every single guest, free wi-fi (it worked in the rooms as well) and free breakfast. Completely worth the price, easy to find and in a lovely neighborhood. Too bad we were never there during the day to meet the dogs, maybe next time cause we'll definitely stay there again!
