It was my first time in London, and The Rose & Crown was a great place to stay so that I could explore London. At the hostel/pub, I mainly dealt with Charles, who was always friendly and helpful, especially since I was arriving early and departing in the afternoon. They met my needs, and were a great value. I highly recommend them.

The owner Charles was very courteous & kind. He assisted is in any way he could. We had a six bed room as we are a family of six and it was very secure & private. The bathrooms are a bit cramped but that's not a complaint as all of us managed fine. Borough Market around the corner was amazing, loved the food there. In fact its proximity to all the sights was super. Best Coffee Shop next door, the owner showed us around the school where he has artefacts of history of coffee brewing. All in all we

Excellent accommodation. Curtains round beds so not bothered by lights. Excellent range for continental breakfast. Short walk to Globe, railway stations and the river. Good for short stays but no cooking facilities for residents makes it more expensive for longer stays.

The Rose & Crown was a great hostel experience while I traveled through London. I only stayed two nights, but staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast provided had great variety, and the beds were comfortable and provided both an individual light, plug and curtain to help guests enjoy their stay. The showers are very tiny, so I would not recommend this place for someone who does not like small spaces. But water was warm and the price was great! Location is amazing!!

I loved staying at the Rose & Crown while in London. As stated above, all of the details made for an affordable stay while in London, without having to sacrifice any of the pleasures of the city. SPECIAL acknowledgement to CHARLES who was such a gracious host, and was supportive, patient, and kind to this "American in London". Thank you!

Destinations was pretty good. I was only there for 2 nights and unfortunately had a very loud roommate who liked to slam doors at midnight. Apart from that my stay was fine. The bathroom facilities are very small and could use a bit of an upgrade.

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels, we are sorry to hear your stay was ruined by another guest, had you brought that to our attention we could have done something about it, our bathrooms are due for refurbishment as soon as the hostel becomes quieter, unfortunately we cannot do this until then, our bathrooms while small are big enough to wash and change in, thank you for your comments.

They are located in business district so bar is quiet overall. Staff is nice, bathrooms... Not the best & typical issues trying to find one not in use with warm water & TP. Each bed feels sturdy & private with own curtain & charging outlet. Storage boxes below & shared closets. Lock codes are a little inconvenient but oh well. Still nice atmosphere but a lil out of the way.

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels, we are glad overall you enjoyed your stay with us but sad to hear you found so many problems, our showers always have hot water, while you might have to wait it is not very long(like other hostels) our toilets alwaour security coded doors are the best we have found for our guests security, we are only 15 mins walk from the tower of London and 25 mins from big ben so not really sure how you regard us as being out of the way, thank you for your comments

We felt very at home in the Rose and Crown hostel! The staff were very helpful and friendly, the beds were comfortable and provided us with our own Little nook, and everyone else at the hostel was very nice! The breakfast was definitely a Highlight. It's so nice to wake up and know that you will be fed well- such a good selection of Food! Overall a really good hostel in a really cool and convenient area.

The staff are friendly and react to problem quickly. I like the bed with personal curtain, light and socket. The location is great, it's near Borough market and just five minutes walks from London Bridge Station. There is fridge, TV and PC even in mixed room. And a fine pub is just down stair for anyone who fancy some drink and free breakfast.

Fantastic hostel above a pub. Hostel is slightly dated and could do with a refurb (e.g. new carpets) but otherwise very clean. I'm 6 feet tall and bed was only just long enough but extrememly comfy! Good breakfast which is included in the price. The only thing I would say is take some ear plugs! There's a church right next door which has bells!!!

Thank you for choosing destinations Hostels, we do refurb different parts of the hostel every year and change the hall way carpet every year, the church nearby only sounds its bells on Sunday's, thank you for your comments.

Loved this Hostel. Wonderful pub below with sweet people to help if needed. My only issue was the key pad locks. Not too good and working those. :) The bathrooms were shared but I never had an issue with getting into one. Breakfast was wonderful. No air con but that was fine because the weather was great and they offered a tall fan. the beds were lovely...had your own plugs. The area was wonderful.

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed our hostel, the numbered door locks have been the best we have come acroos for security but if we find a more safe and better method of door security we will move to that, thank you for your comments.

Fist time in a hostel and was pleasantly surprised. Staff were very friendly and helpful, great atmosphere in the pub downstairs. The showers were lovely and hot but were a bit of a tight squeeze. I did however enjoy my stay and would definitely be back again.

It was very nice hostel to stay. I booked 3nights and stayed with my family. everything was fine but one thing I didn`t like was we couldn`t stay one room.. My family members are 4 and naturally I thought i was going to stay togeather but i stayed different room. I asked staff to change the room. But they couldnt. I booked the hostel 3months ago and I still don`t understand why i coudn`t stay with my family. except that thing, everything was fine.

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels, as I explanined to you when you checked in the other guests in your family's room booked before you did(at least 4 months)and did not want to leave to go to another room, it is not the policy of this hostel to force guests to move against their will, we tried everything in our power to accomodate your request but were not able to do this for you and we apologized to you but as I can see you were offended that we did not do this for you.
