Location was right beside the tube, but is far from anything central. Staff seemed a little hostile, although I got mixed feelings about different staff. Showers were clean (no doors, just curtain) and breakfast (free) was pretty decent. Beds were comfortable but triple decker, so you could really feel the movement of each person. Luggage storage under the bed (not big enough for luggage but otherwise ok) has a spring which is nice because 1) less noise 2) it won't wham the head by accident.

A little far away from everything but with the tubes it's easy to get wherever you want to go. Clean, we stayed in a 15 bed mixed dorm and it was fine. Not the best place to meet people though a lot of people kept to themselves.

Abbiamo soggiornato 4 giorni all'ostello ed abbiamo trovato del personale cordiale e disponibile, l'ingresso aperto 24/24 grazie alla scheda fornita è utile ma la zona è servita dalla metro solo fino alle 00.30 quindi a meno di prendersi un taxi è un po' limitante ma non abbiamo quasi mai dovuto usarla considerando la voglia di vedere più cose possibili durante la giornata e sfruttare le ore luminose del giorno.. Nel complesso il rapporto qualità/prezzo è davvero eccellente!

Clean showers/toilets, comfortable bunks (but too many beds per room), an ok breakfast, a bit far from the centre, but easy to get to by bus or tube. The only slightly negative thing is an absolute lack of character and atmosphere - it's basically a place to get some sleep.

Prior to my stay at London backpackers, I read the reviews and thought it is going to be bad. But I really have to say,I loved it! The 18th dorm room is okay, the facilities are in a good state. All in all it has been a nice stay :)

Nice guy welcomed us at check in. Very comfy beds and awesome triple Decker bunk beds. We only stayed one night, but breakfast was okay. Check out at a good time so we weren't uprooted from our beds at the crack of dawn :) Would definitely stay again.

Privacy curtains on every bed, plus plug ins on the head of the bed made this hostel my new favorite for London. Wifi worked great the whole time. The only thing i didn't care for was the breakfast but it was free so no biggie. Its a bit away from Central London but its right by the tube station.

Good hostel to stay at and go out for the day, good value for money with the continental breakfast especially. Not great for being near fun bars etc but is at least right on the Northern line.

A bit far from the city centre but the tube is a 1 min walk so it was very easy to get too. Staff were amazing and cheap cheap for London

A few minutes by bus from Golders Green (easy travel from Luton airport). Helphul staff. Good breakfast. Recommended!

The staff seem like they I'll go out of their way to provide good service. I locked myself out one night- drunk- and had to get in by pressing emergency access buzzer. They didn't get mad.

The staff was nice and helpful, I love that they have a poster board of things to do in London, and are more than happy to answer any questions you might have. The hostel is out of town, but right next to the train station and there is a little market near by. The kitchen is small but nice and organized. There is also a pool table and two hangout rooms.

en si el hostal esta bien por lo que uno paga. no puedo quejarme. pero esta la ubicación lo condena. termina saliendo mas caro por el transporte. lo mejor es un albergue en la zona 1 o 2.

The hostel was decent overall. Friendliness of some of the desk staff was poor and very morbid. The rest of the staff made up for that though! Awesome individuals. Didn't quite enjoy the showers and the heat of the water. Overall it was a good experience and I met a lot of people.

nice hostel; I only stayed there one night, so I can't really tell much about it. It seemed clean, the staff was helpful. The only thing is, it isn't very near to the centre (20 min with underground) and well, the free breakfast consists of white toast bread with jam and cornflakes, but it's free, so you can't really complain ;) the price was good for London, I guess.

시내에서는 좀 떨어져 있지만 역에서 나와 왼쪽으로 보면 바로 있어요. 역에서 1분이면 갈수 잇어요. 15인실 썻는데 각 침대마다 USB포트랑 등이랑 콘센트 잇어서 편하구요 침대 층마다 커튼잇어서 가릴수 잇어요 층간이 좀 좁아서 앉아잇긴 좀 힘들고 화장실하고 샤워장도 깔끔햇습니다. 조식도 빵이랑 씨리얼이랑 우유 쥬스정도 주고 방에서도 와이파이 잘터짐니다. 대체로 조용조용한 호스텔이엿어요.

the hostel was quite clean and what we needed. it was a long subway ride from downtown and in a more residential area. they included breakfast which was nice but the atmosphere wasn't super friendly and the staff weren't acceptionally helpful, even when we wanted to extend our stay in London having use our computer instead of just booking it for us.

Very good. Would have liked to have more fresh air in the bedroom. It was very stuffy. Other than that, excellent hostel!

Good hostel for the price. It's right next to the train station, but is rather far from the city center. Large rooms with triple decker bunk beds, but they are solidly constructed and have plugs, a shelf, curtains, and lockers for each bed, which is fine. Free breakfast is good, but ends early with no leeway so make sure to get there. Good choice if you are on a budget, which you probably are as London is super expensive!

I was not able to sleep the first night, you can hear every noise from the room, it was terrible. The second was better, but I think it was only because there was less noise in the building. If you have big luggage, you can rent a locker, £5 deposit and £1 per day and you will probably have to because there is only little basket under the bed to put a small luggage.
