Hostelworld says:

Saint James Backpackers, set in a classic Victorian town house, is quaint and typically British. Its interior is beautifully maintained, mixing modern with classic, and includes a sizeable common room with plush sofas and TV. A friendly, family run affair, it offers a selection of dorms and privates, along with full kitchen facilities, free Wi-Fi and a patio area with BBQ. It's close to Earl's Court tube station, just two stops away from London's exclusive Kensington area, and 15 minutes from the West End, where you'll find the best the city has to offer in shopping, theatre and pubs.

    Great! We loved the private room (double bed, en suite) B, the joint facilities and the garden. We loved the food, Dana at the reception, the cat. Actually, we loved everything there and will come back again and again and again. I am so happy - finally I found my backpackers hotel in London. :)

    Great people and vibes. Very close to the underground (subway system) so you can get anywhere quick. There are lots of great eateries and pubs just a minute walk away as well. Steffi makes the best breakfast in town! So make sure you're nice to her! ;) Overall, nice little hostel. Showers are a bit small, but it is clean and there is a nice lounge area with a HUGE tv and free computer use. Would definitely stay again.
