Great hostel, very well located, very comfy beds, included breakfast was very nice. Lacks a social atmosphere, which for me was fine, but if you're after somewhere you can meet people maybe try somewhere else.

It's in a great location and is clean, but if you're looking to meet people and hang out, it's not the right place for you. No socializing as far as I saw. I went down to the pub one evening looking to meet others at the hostel or locals and there was no one there besides a few older men who had no interest in talking to me.

Great location, comfy beds with a lamp and power point at the bed head. The curtain across each bed is a big help, especially when other guests in the room are up early or get in late. The breakfast is very basic, but good. Only problem I came across was the showers are very cramped, but they always had hot water so not the end of the world. Would definitely stay there again.

Thank you for choosing destinations Hostels during your stay in London, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again, our showers are on the smaller side but more than big enough to shower and change in them, our breakfast is better than most hostels in London as you will find out if you stay in another hostel, thank you for your comments.

Great location near London Bridge. The owner was really funny and helpful. Every bed has a reading light, locker, curtain and socket and there was a computer, tv and a water boiler in the room. Altough it was quiet in the room during the night it is better to have earplugs because there are railtracks nearby and you could hear the trains during the night. Breakfast was basic but good. Best place I've stayed in London so far!

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels during your trip to London, we are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, the trains stop running about 11.30pm and only go past at a very slow speed, thank you for your comments.

The location of this hostel cannot be beaten - it's a few minutes walk from Borough Market and the Thames. The security is great and the privacy curtains around each bed are a nice luxury. This place is great for couples or people travelling together, but without a communal space it can be difficult for solo travellers to meet others. I'd definitely stay here again.

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels during your visit to London, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us, we do say on the website that we DO NOT have a common room and we ask not to book our hostel if you want this, we get more single travelers than couples here and we rarely get this comment as most people go to the bar downstairs, thank you for your comments.

No common room, so rather anonymous.

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels during your trip to London, had you actually read the hostel description we ask you not to book with us if you were looking for a common room or kitchen, marking us down for not checking what we offer is not fair, thank you for your comments.

Very nice staff and comfortable beds! The privacy curtains we a huge plus! Only downside is there is no common areas (besides the bar downstairs during open hours), to hang out in, so if you're roommates are sleeping or your neighbors are snoring you have to tough it out and stay quite in the room. Other than that, great breakfast and would stay again.

The staff was great. This facility is above a bar and next to train tracks. There are picnic tables outside in front ot the bar and patrons would be out there talking until late into the night. That and the trains, I didn't sleep very well. They had a good breakfast selection.

Good, clean hostel. Excellent location (near the london bridge and above a pub), friendly staff (getting earplugs at 4 o'clock was no problem) and good breakfast. Would definitely stay there again. They even have a rainshower, woehoew!

Friendly people, low-key atmosphere. Appreciated the privacy curtains and reading light. Not updated but seemed clean. Would stay again.

Good idea the lockers under the beds, but it should be improved: anyone with a screwdriver can open them! But in general it is a very good place! I choose it on my arrival to the UK and choose it again for the departure!

Lovely place in a very good location (very central, only 10 min. walking to London Bridge and 20 min. to Tower Bridge), the staff was nice and breakfast (included in the price) was nicer than what you'd normally expect! The rooms and bathrooms were nice and clean but could be bigger, not that much space to leave your stuff in the room (there were some lockers under the beds but not very comfortable to use). But all in all, for a weekend trip it was a pleasant stay.

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels during your trip to London, we are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, our rooms while not the biggest are big enough for the number of people in them and their luggage, also you can store any other luggage in our secure luggage room should you desire, the lockers are intended for medium to small luggage and personal items, thank you for your comments.

Rather small room (typical for London...), but windows can be opened - result: far less stuffy than some others. Quiet nights, since the hostel is not directly on the main street. Breakfast buffet has quite a selection. Everything clean. Computer in the room worked - very useful addition, that. Location ideal, Underground station is REALLY only 5min away, even with luggage. Only complaint: 2 loos, 2 showers and only 2 WASHBASINS for a whole floor?! Prepare for queues....! Warning: no elevator!

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels during your trip to London, we are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, while we do not have any elevators it is exactly 18 steps on our staircase, hardly going to tire someone out, our shower/toilet facilities are more than adequate for the 20 beds we have in our hostel, thank you for your comments.

Great, clean, close. Highly recommended - don't be put off by the fact that it's a pub, its quiet in the rooms n not a party hostel. Had one small problem with mixed up beds on checkin but worked out fine in the end. Stay here.

Good London accommodation. Shared bathrooms and enough of them so that we were never waiting. Rooms were large, beds comfy and clean.

Had a great stay at the Rose & Crown. Wish I had more time to stay in London. The pub was great. Room was very comfortable. Staff and the dog, Mishka, were also awesome.
