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.

Thank you for choosing destinations hostels during your visit to London, the trains that pass near by are only traveling at 10mph as they are entering or leaving the station and this stops at about 12 midnight, any patrons leaving the bar which closes at 11pm are asked to be quiet for the sake of our hostel guests, we are sorry to hear you did not sleep well while with us and hope you will give us a second chance to prove we can give you a good nights sleep, thank you for your comments.

Felt more like a bar with a hostel attached than a hostel with a bar. Many of the bar patrons were locals. Good location, except you get some noise at night from the train tracks half a block away. I dislike the door code system. I was afraid to come back too late because they change the door codes and if no one is at the bar/reception, you are locked out. I came back after the bar closed one night and was lucky to catch an employee still cleaning up so he could give me the new codes.

Thank you for choosing destinations Hostels during your visit to London, we are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay with us, the trains go past slow and they stop running about 12 midnight, our door code system is the best we have found, we change the codes on a regular basis and we always make sure our guests have the new codes, you can reenter the hostel with these codes at any time you please, thank you for your comments.
