Rose and Crown is so close to the most popular attractions and the London Bridge underground station, which can get you a connection to anywhere you want to go in the city! HostelWorld states that you can check in until midnight, but it really closes at 11:30. We got there right at midnight, and the owner woke up to get us checked in and settled. He was very nice and gracious at all times. The beds were so comfortable & have their own charging station & curtain. Would definitely stay again!

Due to the central location it was quite noisy ad didn't sleep well at all. However, this was a very good hostel overall and would stay there again. Bit more expensive than other hostels but I think it was worth paying the extra

I really liked the atmosphere in the hostel, the staff was very welcoming and helped in every way they could. The dorm room was also quite nice, beds clean, bathrooms also well kept. I also liked the pub downstairs to the hostel, you can easily meet new people there.

Stay here! First of all the hostel is so cute. It was clean, safe, and fun. The location is seriously amazing! It's a quick walk to Borough Market and the London Bridge underground Station. I can't rate this hostel any higher. It's not a "party" hostel. It's laid back and easy-going. A

This was the first hostel I stayed in EVER and it was everything I was looking for. It was close to the London Bridge Station which made getting to and from all points of London very easy. It is a little hidden but that can be a good thing. The only thing is that there are combination door locks for access after hours and into the dorms. Be warned that you must save the combinations, otherwise you will be sleeping outside. The facilities were cramped, but otherwise great stay!

I really liked this hostel. I have stayed in several London hostels and am usually put off by how dirty they get overnight. Since this one is so small it doesn't get too bad. It doesn't have a common area, but you can still go sit in the pub and socialise!

We really enjoyed staying at the Rose & Crown! The owner was super friendly (as was his dog!) and the other guests were very welcoming. Breakfast in the morning was great and it was awesome to be able to take a pint before bed with a bunch of the locals. Also, beds were very comfortable and the room was very large. We really appreciated that each room came with its own computer and mini-fridge. We would definitely stay here again...

Staff were great, facilities were good, breakfast was minimal (apart from the impressive collection of chocolate spread) but more than satisfactory. It was a shame I didn't have time for a pint in the pub.

Super comfortable beds and pillows, pretty clean, no common areas or kitchen, but they advertise that when you book. Not far from the center of the city, we were able to walk everywhere.

The Hostel is very close to the Tube Station "London Bridge" and therefore in the city center, but in a silent side road. The Staff was friendly. The Bathrooms are for Men and Women together an pretty small but clean. I had a single room and in there you have tea for free and the full sky package. All in all i was very happy with my stay there.

Really enjoyed my time here, it was a great start to my trip around Europe. The staff were great and very friendly, and the location was perfect as it's a less busy area but still a short trip to anywhere in the city. I had such a good time there I would have loved to stay longer, and will definitely go there again if I am able to go back to London someday!

This was my first hostel experience & it was fantastic. Great location, directions were clear and didn't have any trouble finding it. Staff was friendly, though perhaps a little aloof. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Loved the privacy curtains, individual lamps & outlet in each bunk. Computer and fridge in each room was great. No keys, just access codes. Difficult to remember but got the hang of it once I locked myself out once or twice. Highly recommended- will be back again!

This hostel is such an awesome place to stay at London. They have great prices, hostel staff is the nicest ones ive ever met! Had such a good time with them on my last night there. Atmosphere in hostel is really great even though there is no common room - the puh downstairs is great place to just hang and get to know to new people. There is only a few minute walk to nearest tube station, and less than a minute walk to nearest bus station. I without hesitation recommend this hostel!
