Not too bad a place but could get better in the city for the same amount of money. Good as it is right next to the station, internet cafe, small supermarket, pub etc. Starf were a little unfriendly although the cute guy on reception was nice.

Les chambres ne sont pas isolées et nous entendons très fortement les bruits de couloirs. Ce n'est pas dérangeant la nuit quand tout le monde dort mais jusqu'à minuit et dès 6h du matin ça n'a rien d'agréable. La décoration de notre chambre donnait mal au cœur (graffitis sombres même sur le plafond) et les sanitaires étaient vraiment pas propres ces jours ci. Une petite suggestion, les draps sont trop petits. Nous avons dormi les pieds à l'air. Cordialement.

Filthy sheets and mattresses in the single rooms, generally cold and ugly and in a terrible location. One of the worst and overpriced hostels I've ever stayed at in 2 years of travel. Only stay here if there is absolutely no alternative.

Le staff est sympa, et il reigne une bonne ambiance dans cette auberge. Elle s'appelle London Backpackers car il y a pas mal (12 quand j'y étais) résidents, qui préfère cette solution aux loyers exorbitants de Londres. Proche de Camden, l'auberge est quand meme loind du centre, et comptez bien 40 minutes pour y etre en métro. Par contre l'auberge est à coté du bus, et du métro, donc pas de problème pour rentrer dans la nuit ! Le confort est pas mal, mais ce n'est pas le luxe.

It is a nice hostel, very close to the tube station, but very far from central london. The price is very reasonable and the toilets and beds are clean, bed linen included. They have lockers, wifi, luggage room, kitchen. It is a pretty ok hostel apart from being far. There is a pub on the main road next to it that has good food for low price. Worthy it.

This place isn't close to anything. Sort of a dodgy area. Bathrooms/showers suck. Have to press a button every 10sec to keep water flowing. Rooms are ridiculously crowded. Bunks stacked 3 high. Wouldn't go back

This place was pretty bad and it was only enhanced by its terrible location

Auberge propre, accueil sympa, petit dej compris (mais il faut pouvoir se lever avant 10h), dortoir tres bien fait avec des prises pour chaque lit et une lumiere ainsi qu'un rideau pour s'isoler du soleil. Chacun a son petit casier sous le lit pour éviter de disperser ses affaires dans la chambre. Seul point faible l'emplacement, 20-25min de métro jusqu'au centre et 45min de bus le soir pour rentrer quand il n'y a plus de metro...

Un séjour très agréable dans cette auberge de jeunesse. Le seul petit bémol est le fait que le centre ville soit à 30 minutes en métro... Mais ce n'est qu'un détail. Je recommande.

It was the second time I was there, and like the first time I loved it! The atmosphere is wonderful and super comfy. Next time I'll go to London, this will be my first choice!

It's right across the subway station. Very easy to find. Would be better if the common room is bigger and nicer. Overall good experience.

Staff not exceptionally friendly. Was nice that it was right next to the underground, so it was easy to travel to the city. Internet hardly worked the first night, but got better throughout the stay. Privacy in the rooms was a plus

Dans l ensemble auberge très agreable. Bon rapport qualite prix, la seule chose que nous pourrions reprocher sont les 30min necessaires pour se rendre dans le centre de londres. nous avons passe un tres bon sejour dans cette auberge.

Being my first time staying in a hostel being on a training and could not afford elsewhere I was very surprised that the facilities were a lot better than expected as I only need somewhere to crash out for the night instead of sleeping on a park bench or cancelling my course I was very honored that their was no age restriction being a mature student and starting later in life due to health reasons.

Bit far away from city center, but very close to tube and buses, so easy to get around. Very clean and quiet, although probably easy to meet people if you're looking for that. Loved the bed curtains which gave a sense of privacy, and the bed lamp and plugs for both usb and electronic devices above the beds were great. A nice place and good value for money.

Overall a great place that's close to the underground. Internet was slow and could be improved.

Nothing too special about the hostel but it was a good price for London, clean, and had some good amenities. The location is far, but at least it's close to major transportation.

Checkin: they ask for a cash deposit for card access after hours Computers: there are 2. they are ok, but they are only usable during reception hours Beds: I was in the 16 or 18 bed dorm and they would leave the windows open all day and night to the traffic noise because it was so stuffy Shower water was timed and annoying Costs a $$ lot on the metro to get into the main city
