Not a central location in the city, but it is a fair price and seems to be in a safe and quiet enough area.

This Hostel is quite far north of central London, and it takes about 1hr each way with the tube. Everyting else was as could be expected. Quite average.

I thought this was a great place and really close the train station. That made not staying in the city totally worth it! And the staff was amazing!

I felt that the room and the floors had a really weird cologne smell. The bathroom showers were very annoying as you'd have to press the taps to get it continually running which made showering very inefficient. Additionally, I did not find that the showers were cleaned well. There was no hair dryer so many of the girls walked around with damp hair. Breakfast was served too early. I found the hostel personnel could have been a little nicer or more pleasant to talk to.

I liked it here. I especially like the mini curtains around each bunk bed. I can only say the mens bathrooms/showers were a bit on the tight side...and the price of a towel to buy (towel rental not an option) was a bit on the steep side, considering the quality and size of the towel you get for your GBP. But if you're in Hendon and staying here, there are good eating and drinking options in the area. Nice place. Well run

I had a really great time. The hostel was very clean and the employees were very nice. Everything was secure. It is a little far away from everything, but right near the tube. For how cheap it is, I was expecting a bad experience, but it was very nice. Exactly perfect for a weekend in London.

The hostel ia very close to the Hendo central underground station, easy to find staff gives a card for the customers since 22hs there's no staff there.. The environment was very calm in was exactly what I was looking for, the bunk beds were comfortable and each has a little courtains for privacy, every bunk bed has electricity plugs and even usb slots for charging ,the pillows were too thin, asked for a second one got it, but it was another thin pillow... Not too bad.

I stayed here for 6 nights. The staff was very friendly and the hostel was pretty clean. I liked the privacy given but the curtains on the beds and the plugs (especially the usb ports as my plug adaptor did not work). The lockers under the bads were good but could be better if made slightly smaller to stop them banging and hooking into each other. The showers were a down side as the curtains did not cover the whole doorway (easily fixed by hanging a towel over the gap).

Really cool hostel which is literally across the road from a tube station which will get you to any of the main sights in London. The atmosphere was great and really friendly plus it was decorated in a really cool way which added to the good vibes. The free breakfast provided is awesome if trying to save money on food. Would definitely recommend!!

Good. However, being locked out because the reception closed 3 hours early is not good fun.

Great value for money! Nice and helpful staff, pretty close to the tube, not so close to the centre but not a big deal. Many shops around. The curtains is a plus!

London Backpackers is next to a Tube station and surprisingly quiet. Staff is friendly and helpful though sometimes you have to wait a bit until someone is at the reception (not too bad). We had a 15-bed room with showers and toilets shared on the floor. The dorm room was good. The male toilets and showers were good, too. The female toilets and showers had short doors so they hardly hide the person inside. Both showers were warm, clean and there was always one available. Kitchen was ok.

Overall good hostel, a little far away from the main attractions in London but is only a 30 second walk from a metro so it wasn't too bad.

Was a good stay at the hostel, good to have somewhere to lock away belongings and I enjoyed the breakfast

This hostel was pretty average. The guy behind the check in counter didn't want to be at work and he was very unfriendly. It was such an effort for him to even check us in. Room had stains down the wall and I had chewing gum stuck above my bed. Toilet and shower facilities were ok. It is close to an underground stop but still a mission to get to Central London. If you want a friendly face/staff to greet you I'd recommend looking elsewhere.

A really nice, clean hostel with nice staff, the bathroom was clean. I was only there overnight so don't know about the breakfast but would recommend going here to anyone!

This place was across the street from a tube station, so that was really nice. It was in a square that had access to some little cafés for food. It was nice of them to give out free SIM cards for phones. Breakfast was fine, toast and choice of cereals, powdered juices, and all day coffee and tea. The room itself was ok, the mattress on the bed was looking kind of gross, bring a sleep sac to sleep in and an extra pillow if you like something a little firm, their pillows were awful, too flat.
