The hostel is fine and location is great. Walking distance to the market and tube station. Staff are great and helpful. There are only two bathroom. Sometime it is locked for no reason even nobody is in there. My last two night I had to wait at least 30 mins just to get into the shower. There is no common area but you can also hangout at the pub downstairs.

Thank you for choosing destinations hostels during your visit to London, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us but unfortunately one shower broke Saturday night and it was not until 11am Sunday morning we could repair it, we are sorry you had to wait so long for a shower, thank you for your comments.

The Rose & Crown Hostel is above the Rose & Crown Bar. It is a little confusing at first because you walk into a bar with all your luggage expecting a hostel. However after you get checked in, you realize that it is quite a nice set-up. Rooms are great, each bunk with it's own power outlet and curtain (which is an excellent idea!). Nice breakfast is included and the owner (and cute German Shepard) are friendly. Will stay here again if ever in London.

The shower was broken and I couldn't get the hot water to work. But I loved the curtain around the bed giving you privacy.

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels during your trip to London, the broken shower was replaced as soon as it was reported and the hot water controls are sometimes confusing but our showers do always have hot water, we are sorry if any of these problems ruined your stay with us, thank you for your comments.

Super Hostel. Würde immer wieder hin. Das Zimmer war sehr schön, nur das Fenster etwas undicht. Kann mir vorstellen das es im Winter etwas kalt sein könnte. Für uns war das aber kein Problem. Duschen und Toiletten waren sauber. Pup unten ist auch ganz nett und das Frühstück war in Ordnung. (Nur der Kaffee war net gut)

BED BUG 투숙 첫날 자다가 새벽에 불을 켰는데 벌레가 지나가서 잡고나서 봤더니 베드버그였다.잡았는데 피가 나옴. 다음날 아침에 항의를 했더니 그냥 벌레일 뿐이라며 거의 화를 내듯이 응대하더라. 설사 그냥 벌레라 하더라도 사과정도는 해야하는거 아닌가? 물린 자국이 있냐며 물어보는데, 그때 당시만 해도 물린지 물리지 않은지 알 수가 없었다. 베드버그는 물리고 나서 바로 가려운 게 아니라 잠복기가 있다고 들었기 때문. 주인이 물리지 않았으니 베드버그 아니고 그냥 벌레라고 화내길래 어쩔수 없이 그냥 묵었다. 다음날 밤에 또 조그만 베드버그 발견. 그 뒤로 밤에 잠을 잘 못잤다. 베드버그가 어두운 곳 싫어한다길래 불키고 거의 맨날 뜬눈으로 밤을 지샘. 런던에서 파리로 이동하고, 파리에서 바르셀로나, 마드리드까지 이동하고 여행을 마쳤는데 파리에서부터 몸이 가렵고 바르셀로나부터는 빨간 물린자국이 올라오며 계속 가렵다. 2개밖에 없는 샤워시설, 베드버그, 불친절한 고객응대. 최악이다

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels during your visit to London, we are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us, the room you stayed in did have bugs and we changed your bedding and moved you to another bed because we were not sure what they were, once it was confirmed they were bed bugs we brought in exterminators and the bugs have now gone, at no time did we ignore or be aggressive to you, we were just trying to understand what you were telling us, again we unreservedly apologize.

It was a very nice hostel-stay, the staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean with fresh water and coffee for self-made. If we're going again to London we'll definitely choose this hostel again. Only the breakfast was , in my opinion,poor since there were only sweet things to take but no ham or cheese so I would definitely reccomend to change that. The bar has also a variety of beers to offer and it's very nice and friendly.

The Rose and Crown is actually a pub that doubles as a hostel. Worry not of you're not into nightlife; there was a live concert down on the pub floor while I was there yet so little sound managed to reached the bedroom. Their rooms are extraordinary. It's vast, clean, and private. In your bed you get your own electrical socket, lamp, and curtain. A fridge and locker are at your disposal. Staffs were very friendly and keen to help. Couldn't recommend this place more!

This hostel is generally a nice place to stay in terms of its quiet environment, its proximity to city centre and cleanliness in the room. What can be improved is the shower facility as it is too small. The mattress is also soft that I could not sleep very well. But given the price level, the quality is still worth the money.

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels during your visit to London, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, our showers are different sizes, one is slightly smaller than the other but still big enough to shower and change, we use memory foam mattresses but upon request we can supply a harder mattress as per your request, thank you for your comments.

Not the cheapest hostel in London, but not far from average (regrettably). I might be concerned about the security being comination locks, but the place didn't seem particularly unsafe. Everything else was really very nice. The rooms are small but WELL equipped, very comfy beds, sockets, lights, TV, computer (even headset/mic) and a mini fridge!!! The showers were super small, but always hot, so not a bid deal. My favorite staff member was local resident german shepherd!

Su ubicación es muy buena, cerca de todo, tanto de la estación del metro como de los principales lugares para llegar caminando. El personal del hostel tiene muy buena onda, desde el dueño hasta las personas que trabajan con él. Yo llegue solo una mañana, y desde el primer minuto me orientaron para conocer de lleno la ciudad. Están dispuestos a ayudarte, y a brindar un buen lugar para empezar tu día en Londres. Las habitaciones son geniales! Muy bueno todo! ojala algún día pueda regresar.
