Great place to stay! The comfy beds were very appreciated at the end of a long trip.

quite central, nice staff, good breakfast, a third shower would be nice. BUT the last night they over-booked my bed and when I came home I hadn't a bed, because the hostel was full. In the end it wasn't really a big problem, because they had a private room, where I could sleep. But it was really annoying!! I wasted a lot of time. Because first I changed room, but then someone else came… I don’t know whose fault it was, but that shouldn’t happen! But still a good hostel choice in London!

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels during your stay in London, we are sorry about moving you to another room, there was a mix up on the booking system and it double booked the bed, but you were given a private room at the same price, we hope it did not detract from your enjoyment of staying with us, thank you for your comments.

This hostel was very lovely to stay at especially as I was travelling alone. It was a 3 block walk to London Bridge tube station which could get you anywhere in London. The staff are lovely and are always up for a chat and some advice about where to travel in the city. The beds were the most comfortable I have slept in a long time. I would recommend this to anyone who asks for accommodation in London. Thanks for the great time Charles and Clare!

I was pleasantly surprised to find tea and coffee making facilities and a computer in the shared bunkroom. And OK, you're still sleeping in a room with 5 other people, but a decent mattress, curtain across my bunk and personal light gave a sense of comfort and almost privacy. Appreciated the fan on such a hot night as well. Boiled eggs and fruit available for breakfast alongside the usual cereals and pastry was also appreciated.

Location is close to everything. But 6 bed dorm I stayed in was not very clean. Some hairs on my bed.

Charles was great! Great value for the money. The shower stalls were a little small, and the room got VERY hot at night, but the beds and bunks were very nice; curtains, private reading lights and electrical outlets. He even had a BBQ one night with free food and beer! Great location short walk from the tube and London Bridge. Be sure to check out the Borough Market right down the street.

They often didn't unplug the toilets, and there was something wrong with the shower because the water didn't go down.

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels during your visit to London, one of our toilets was not flushing properly, we needed a new part for it, it has now been repaired, our showers do drain away but sometimes more slowly than other times, especially when both showers are being used, we are sorry that these issues spoiled your stay with us, thank you for your comments.

Fanatastic hostel in the best part of London - Southwark. Shops, restaurants, pubs, it's all here and at cheaper prices than the City, West End etc. So close to London Bridge for trains, underground and buses.

Great location, very close to the boroughs market, easy access to transport. I found staff, Taylor, very welcoming! Helped me with my luggage, very good for having a friendly chat and gave me the best last minute suggestion in getting my souvenir, a Paddington Bear! Overall worth the stay :)

Although I absolutely love the owner and his dog along with the hospitable breakfast and morning atmosphere but I am picky about the bathrooms. They looked like the window sills hadn't been cleaned in a while based on how much mildew/mold has accumulated with poor ventilation in the bathroom. Also, be forewarned that if you're showering in the morning the hot water runs out early so you may be stuck with a cold shower. I took one every night and there was plenty of hot water though.

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels during your visit to London, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, but let me explain what happened with the hot water, someone turned down our water thermostat and this was the cause of the shortage of hot water the one morning you took a cold shower, the mold/mildew on the window sill has now been dealt with and will not return, we have now let our previous cleaner go because of her lack of detail in her cleaning, so will be better next time.

good bed, the staff clean hostel everyday. breakfast is also good. the woman staff is really kind. only bad thing is shower room. shower room plugged many times. so i feared every time when i use shower , worring about water comes out. and in the morning, people use shower a lot so you have to wait 15min to get hot watter after people came out.

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels during your visit to London, we have had some problems with the water draining away from the showers, but this has been addressed, we clean out the drains every couple of days to make sure they drain better, hot water comes through to the showers in less than 2 minutes, thank you for your comments

The beds and mattresses are brilliant, the coffee in the pub downstairs is free and very good, but only two loos and two showers for the entire hostel aren't great. Bit cramped. Alright for 30 quid a night I guess...it's central London, after all.

It's quite and clean. The curtains around each bed are a great way to find some privacy.

Enjoyed our stay at this hostel, Charlie and his dog Mishka are great owners. Would definitely stay here again. Rooms are quite cute also and kept clean.

Decent location, kind hospitality, standard facilities (two shared bathrooms, bunk beds). The soft mattresses and curtains on the beds were a nice touch. Breakfast (free) was pretty good too. I would recommend this place to traveling college/university students who are looking for a good value.
