Staff very friendly, professional and helpful. Everything very clean. Facilities although clean and in good working order could be modernised. But then this is a good price (especially if a deal going). The sort of residents here are also pleasant to interact with.


tidy, quiet place in good London location. Seems to have a lot of long term residents. Well worth a stay.


Very good all round. Very clean and good value. Only minor improvements could be in showers: hooks/ shelves for clothes etc, fix extractor fan, remove mouldy carpet outside door (probably due to moisture from shower). Also I missed breakfast - staff could mention times verbally to people when checking in as more restricted than normal B&B (although it is printed on a ticket).


Great stay with the exception of dripping water from the radiator and squeeky bed. Very safe and wonderful room mate. I will be back for another short stay.


Nice neighborhood and the tube is easy to navigate but this location is a decent length tube ride away from all the main attractions!!


I really felt secure in this hostel with the added advantage that it is nice to be with lots of people. The location and the other people living and sharing in the hostel is really amazing for London. I was happy here and recommend it to anyone wishing to feel included whilst not paying the earth to live in London for a day or two.


A wonderful, quiet place to stay. The only negatives would be, the beds make noise every time you move and the receptionist is not always at their desk, so you may be waiting around to check-in/out


Perhaps less of an atmosphere because there was no welcome at the threshold as with some hostels where the reception is visible from the door . Security did not seem to be a worry however sometime the hostels where there are always people coming and going and using the landings and other areas to sit and hang out provides more security that just having locked doors.


Our stay was better than expected. We received a private room for just the two of us. The room was clean and looks really new. Belsize was really near to the tube station and quite because it's situated in residential area. However, it can be too quite to walk at night and that makes us feel a bit cautious. Only drawback is the sharing shower room is very small! We have to keep pressing the knob to keep the water running. The dining room stinks like rats pee or something. Do something about it!


I like this place - the atmosphere is good - friendly and home like


They need showers that don't turn of after ten seconds.


Bed was really uncomfortable, springs were so painful to sleep on. Shower is a 10 second button operated one. Not very clean and always had a bad smell like sewerage in the hallways.
