Brazen backpackers is located quite well. Edgeware road is on the circle line and city line, which makes is very easy to get everywhere you want. I didn't like the neighborhoods atmosphere. There weren't nice bars to hangout. The hostel is above a pub, full of drunk old people. It was sad to see how drunk the were, even during the day. The atmosphere felt like an homeless people shelter.. The staff was nice and helpfull! But the rooms, bathrooms and kitchen were absolutely disgusting.

Don't let the price fool you. It was gross! Bathrooms and beds were in terrible conditions and the staff is too busy managing the bar downstairs to take care of the place. Was supposed to stay 2 nights, left after the first one. Just gross

Very friendly and helpful staff. Good value with breakfast included. Rooms were spacious but didn't feel particularly safe with broken window and sheets/bathroom were not particularly clean.

I would't not stay at this hostel again. It was so dirty, and the breed in the morning had mold on it. The window in our room had a big hole, that was only coveret by a plasticbag and two pieces of tape. The tv room had only 4 chairs and was not very nice, and the kichen was to disgusting for me to cook there. If they made sure to clean it propperly, and fix something as important as a broken window, it could be worth staying there again. But I dont come to London to become ill.

The location is perfect. The room I stayed in had shakey triple bunk beds with disgusting sheets and mattresses. The breakfast is solid, wifi good, bathrooms aren't the best. Not really enjoyable, but not upset given the price and location.

Room beyond sub par, seemed like the bed was made of toothpicks. Only one power outlet in a room of nine. 3 showers for the entire floor (with no hot water in one) and the sink in the kitchen was clogged the entire time. The "tv room" is a small 10inch tv with one seat in a basement closet.

Well the only thing I can say about this hostel is that is cheap. And you get even less with everything else. Triple bunk beds were just crazy. And the crowd that hangs out downstairs on the pub is all old locals, so not much atmosphere. Plus the window in my room was broken and their fix was to put a plastic bad to seal it. I don't recommend.

nice and friendly staff, good price and breakfast as well. just a little note about the cleaning in the kitchen (plus stuff working) and the bathrooms, I think should be better as common areas, even if the price of the hostel is very low.

A decent hostel, All you need for a few nights stay. Location is ok, 15 min walk to oxford street.

The hostel is pretty basic and the staff are fairly helpful but not the most friendly. The location is excellent as long as you don't mind taking the metro, the stop is close and you can get anywhere in the city from there. The bar downstairs has friendly locals and was a great added bonus.

The room was fine for 9 people, spacious enough. The bathroom however was really gross, just putting some tiles on the floor instead of that dirty piece of plastic will make all the difference.

A very friendly and accommodating venue

The hostel and the rooms are quite big, but it’s really really dirty. The staff is weird - not only one person of there was helpful. The breakfast is terrible, and once it´s finished they kick you out of the pub (where the breakfast is served) to clean it up. The TV room has only a few chairs, there is no sofa. And it smells musty. Wouldn´t recommend it, at all.

the bed and quilt was really unclean...and the staff made a mistake of giving me a bed which was already allocated to another guy, who got quite angry when he came back and found me on that bed.
