Excellent location, really safe district. Good price, and two of us got into a 3 bed room, which they made into a private. You get linens, but no towels or anything else. Breakfast (included in the price), was the most hilarious things ever: toast, margarine, jam, instant cofee, youghurt. Shabby hostel in general, needs a re-vamp. Tragic beds, but clean. Also a very strange furniture, completely out of place. Can't beat the price, and it was not disguisting. Good for a few days.

This is probably one of the worst hostels I've ever visited! It's very dirty, poor quality bed mattress, strange odour and even strange guests! Very weird place! Avoid, not worth the hussle! Shame, because the house is very nice from outside, it's just run and owned by wrong people!

The shower in the shower room should be changed from pressing button to other type to avoid the problem of needing to constantly press on it. Toilet should be cleaned more often.

Student accommodation so minimal atmosphere for travelers. Great location for Camden Town market. Only small disadvantage maybe that the road inclines so if you have heavy or lots of luggage you may struggle to get up the hill.

The hostel was VERY worn, in need of total refurbishment, dirty and smelly. Have stayed in Palmers Lodge hostel Swiss Cottage which isn't far for same price and they were in a different league- clean, tidy, professional and homy and breakfast included. In Belsize House everything looks like it's falling apart, when I pressed the hot tap in toilet the water splashed all over the room and myself, breakfast not included and only until 8 anyway, smelly hallways. Typical London soulless money maker.

Would be nice to have a communal kitchen to cook your own food. Didn't see anything like that. The single rooms are decent for the price.

Great value for money. Great location. Staff are not super friendly and there is no kitchen to do your own cooking- hard when your travelling on a budget

Overpriced die what you get. I guess London is overal pricy but the beds are unacceptable.

I liked this place. The staff were efficient and the residents although mostly long stay were friendly. Facilities were good. I like to have a bath an this is one of the few hostels that provide them.

No lockers in the bedroom, so I had no safe place to keep my valuables. Receptionist said that it had been too complicated giving the guests keys to lock their items in their rooms, so they removed all the locks. Dirty bathrooms,bedroom floor covered in hair when I arrived and not cleaned until next day. Breakfast in the morning from 7-830, employee managing the kitchen was very aggressive about having us finish at 840 (turned lights off). Must buzz for reception to get in and out of hostel
