Loved Safestay Walwoth Road. Its in a fantastic location with only a 5 min walk to Elephant & castle tube station and Walworth road full of places to eat and supermarkets and trendy little cafes and art bars. The Rooms and bathrooms were very clean and the staff were always lovely and front desk staff were very knowledgeable. The only downfall about this hostel is that at the moment (and until 2018) there is construction going on next door, across the road and even a bit further up the road.

There's better places to stay in London. The hostel is situated beside and around a construction site so it is super noisy. The atmosphere is dismal and the staff truly don't go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Bring your toaster because their breakfast doesn't have one. The rooms were nice and secure. Location was a little out of the way but the metro is a quick 7 minute walk away.

Good hostel. Friendly staff clean rooms and decent facilities. Construction works everyday in surrounding buildings make it hard to get a good sleep. Apart from that had a great stay. Nice bustling multicultural area with lots of interesting restaurants.

We were given a room abive the boiler. When we complained about the heat, we were moved but they mentioned that they never use that room that it's too hot. Why was I assigned that room? Not nice. The two female receptionists were very rude.

All the staff here were great. The hostel is part of the London Living Wage scheme. Very convenient location to all the sites.

Everything was as it should be. The only thing was as it was directly on the street it was extremely loud and it was super hard to sleep through.

This is probably the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in. The beds are pretty comfortable (stayed in 6 bed dorm). Wifi is terrible in the rooms but good in the lobby. Security is top notch, although can get annoying. You can't even use the elevator without a key card. The curtains on the beds are really nice for privacy & the staff was friendly even when they messed up my reservation. location is good can get to center city in 15 mins and only a short walk to station. Quiet. Not a party house
