Highly recommend this place!! The location was perfect I did not have to catch the underground at all as everything was within walking distance! I had booked a 4 bed female dorm and was upgraded to a 2 bed which was a nice surprise. Showers and toilets were readily available with running hot water. The breakfast was a nice bonus, dinner was only an additional 4 Pounds for delish chicken, potatoes and salad all generously served. The staff were also super friendly and helpful!


I had a great stay. Nice rooms and good facilities. Would definitely recommend.




basically it was all good but the showers and breakfast werent too nice. for a shower one has to press that button too often which is extremely annoying and the breakfast was advertised as continantal one but pretty poor

+ Excellent location. + Superb price/value ratio. + Clean rooms, toilets and hostel as whole. + Big rooms + Free breakfast - Shower at our floor was malfunctioning. - The building is quite old and needs renovation.

The showers are bad water not running like should be. Should be changed for normal ones.


The time for breakfast can be a bit longer and really enjoy the hot food on Sat morning


Holland house was great. Had some live in girls in my dorm who were so nice. The included breakfast and dinners were awesome, I'd recommend alone to stay here t is s central on,y a 10 min walk from Victoria station. Only thing is their showers are bit dodgy so for girls it's a bit hard to wash your hair


very good location, close to Victoria station and to the Buckingham palace. I arrived around 9:30 pm and reception closes at 9 so there was no one there to open the door for me, when I finally got in there was no one there and you have to call them but I didn't have an England number to call. but the rooms are really good , you have your own wardrobe and you can lock it, the have free breakfast and free dinner every day so that's quite good !


Great location within easy walking distance of Victoria/Green Line coach stations and Victoria train/Tube station. A LOT OF STAIRS. There is a lift but you will still be taking stairs to get places. Dinner and lunch were unexpected bonuses. A hot breakfast on Saturday was also a pleasant surprise. COIN LAUNDRY - wonderful, but soap needs to be available. Creaky bunk beds. Lots of long term stay guests. Need a permanent room for left luggage; otherwise nearly perfect.


Good security - you get an electronic key for both the front door and your room, you do need to pay a deposit for these though. Wasn't allowed to go in the hostel before check-in time so can't leave your bags and walk around like some hostels. Really close to the Victoria train and coach station, where you arrive from the airport. Not exactly a typical hostel - people staying in my room for about 6 months, no kitchen or common area. You get breakfast and dinner included in the price!


Best local for short visits
