Staff is really nice. Bedroom & bathroom are clean. Bed are stable, mattress is good. Many things are included in the price. One of the best backpacker I tried.

I only stayed one night, but the staff was pretty cool and very helpful

Good location, clean, good security (front door lock with number keypad, room key, lockable locker -own lock needed, programmable safe). Great atmosphere in part due to the fact that for London, it is a small hostel making it more personal than one with 150 guests who are mostly just passing ships. A place you can make friends if you want or do your own thing.A point to keep in mind when booking - no lifts so be prepared to use stairs. Will definitely be back next time I'm passing through London

Amazing....it's a small hostel which makes it personal and like a big family / group of friends rather than impersonal and filled with large groups as can be found in others. You get a locker (bring your own lock) however inside is a programmable safe. You get the door code so no curfew and the staff are super friendly. Love, love, love the dogs though like all respectable (or lucky) 'employees', they 'work' Monday to Friday only :)

Staff was very friendly and happy to answer any questions. Had a great location and the people staying there were all friendly. When I e-mailed in advance about a health concern for my friend while staying there the staff responded quickly and were very helpful and accommodating in any way they could. I arrived at the hostel with high expectations of a safe place and helpful staff and my expectations were far surpassed. Told my college to add this place for future students to know about!

Had a great stay at the Barby Badger. Great locaties and a very friendly staff. The little dogs is lovely and makes you feel at home. In all my visits to London this was by far the best hostel in combination with the location and value for my money.

Good location and friendly staff. Poor breakfast, bad smell on the building. You can find better hostels for the same price.

Thank you for your review and for choosing to stay at the Badger. We are so pleased that you liked our location and friendly staff. I did address you and your room mate's complaint over the smell (which could not be smelled in your room) from someone cooking a curry - as I said at the time, we can ask people to use the extractor fan in the kitchen and open the window, but we can't ask them not to cook certain food. Safe onward travels from all of us here.

Excelent location, subway really close, restaurants and a big Tesco nearby. The kitchen can become overcrowded. The breakfast lacks in diversity and the available toilets let down (one of them is next to the laundry). There no sense of privacy, on our first night, me, my girlfriend and our other friend couple were woken by the person that takes out the trash. The door doesn't lock to people that have the key, we had to makeshift a lock so that no one got in while we took a shower or dressed.

Thank you for your review and for choosing to stay at the Badger. We are so pleased that you like our excellent location. I am puzzled as to why, during your 6 night stay, you did not once ask any member of staff to help you with your door. Had you done so, we would have immediately shown you how to use the lock on your door saving you any privacy or security concerns :) Safe onward travels from all of us here.

Good location close to city and close to Tube station. Private room wasn't huge or new but the bedding seemed new and it was clean so it wasn't bad. Would stay there again.

Adorei esse hostel! Ambiente super agradável, funcionários atenciosos e simpáticos. Mesmo sendo um pouco mais afastado das principais atrações, ainda está na zona 1 e na linha de metrô que leva à vários pontos turísticos importantes. Também tem vários pubs, restaurantes e mercados nos arredores e está há somente uns 5 min à pé da estação de metrô. O café da manhã está incluso na tarifa e é ok (o esperado para um hostel). Recomendo para qualquer um que busque um lugar em Londres! Amei!

Muito bom e agradável. Os funcionários são muito educados e deixaram tudo pronto quando chegamos, pois a recepção fechas durante a noite. Dai é importante de informar o horário de chegada. Alem disso é bem vertical. Muita escada para cima se seu quarto ficar nos andares superiores. No mais tivemos uma estadia agradável e bem localizada. Tem na rua da esquina um supermercado e restaurantes, fast food e metrô muito próximos.

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.
