Seriously such a lovely hostel; the location is fantastic as it's right near a tube station on the South Bank. Breakfast was spectacular and the beds were so comfy. Felt so safe the entire time I was there. Staff were kind, the privacy curtains around the beds were so useful, and overall, I just had an incredibly wonderful stay there! I would definitely stay there again.

The hostel is located on top of a pub and it is operated by the pub staff as well. There are 3 security doors to get to your room, all of which require different security code. If you read some of the old comments like I did - the code does not change every day. The manager told me they now change the big door code every 2-3 months. What this means to you is if you come back late at night, you will be able to get in with the code that is given to you. The shower & bath are small but I am okay :)

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels, I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us, we change our door codes monthly, all codes are changed at this time, changing the door codes daily would cause too much confusion and lead to guests getting locked out of the hostel, when we change the codes we do so early in the morning and we post notice that we are doing this first thing in the morning so everyone has a chance to get the new codes, thank you bor your comments.

Nice and friendly staff. Very clean. Great breakfast buffet. Very comfy beds. Central location in London. The only thing not excellent is; Computer is extremely slow (but good Wifi connection!), there is no common room for the backpackers, having said that; you can go down in the Pub ;) sadly none of the people in my room did that. I definitely recommend this Hostel :)

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, the computers in the rooms were a little slow but this has been rectified now, we do say on the website that we DO NOT have a common room and if your looking for this please book another hostel, you can go down to the pub to meet with others but we cannot make our guests do this, thank you for your comments.

The Rose and Crown is hands down the best hostel I've stayed at in London. Charles ad the bar staff are all friendly, accomodating and very welcoming and approachable, topped off with the comfiest beds around, and an unbeatable complimentary breakfast for a great price!

The owner Charles and his staff were very helpful and friendly! Rooms were very clean with plenty of space, and the breakfast was very good. My only thought on improving the experience would be to let the downstairs pub be used after hours for study/work space to not disturb other guests in the room late at night.

Everything about this hostel was fantastic. We booked 2 nights at this hostel and 3 nights at a hostel by Kensington but after the first night at the other hostel we switched back because we just loved this one so much. It's above an adorable London-ey pub yet it's still very quiet. Close to the London eye, bridge, trains, everything. We even walked to Westminster from here because the river isn't far and it's a beautiful walk. Love love love the hostel. Couldn't say enough awesome things.

My stay in this hostel was very comfortable! The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The room was better than I expected -- very clean and nicely equipped. It's quiet at night, as the pub downstairs closed at 11pm that Thursday. The location was perfect, walking distance to many attractions. I would definitely stay here again!

Stayed here for 2 weeks when I first got to London. Staff were awesome, especially Josh, Flavia and Valeska. They made me and everyone at the hostel feel so welcome and were so helpful with me being new to London. I spent a few nights at the bar, the crowd and staff all get along, I had an awesome time, it's a very friendly and welcoming environment. Perfect location being at London bridge. I definitely recommend this hostel to anyone!

Tiny bathrooms...

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels, we are sorry to hear you hated your stay with us, our bathrooms while smaller than other hostels are not tiny, they are more than big enough to shower and change in, had you looked at the photo's on the website you would have seen the size of the bathrooms, thank you for your comments.

I've been in the hostel for seven days and i can tell that is a great hostel, very nice atmosphere at the bar, the people working there is very kind, everything is clean and the bed is VERY good specially after a long day walking. The breakfast is very good too. The hostel is close to Borough underground station so you can move from there to everywhere in london. Thanks to all the guys and girls that work in the hostel!
