I was more than pleased with my stay. The location was fantastic, close to the tube, bus routes, and museums. The thai restaurant close to the hostel is some of the best thai food I have had in years. The staff was more than accommodating and helpful. The beds, kitchen, and bathrooms were clean. I will definitely be back next time I am in London.

Had a really good stay! Only drawback was that some of the pegs in our bed kept falling out, but that could easily be fixed! Otherwise, the staff was very friendly

Great location. Safe area for a young female traveling on her own. Main common room wasn't very friendly though. TV was just a big distraction- maybe add in a few cards on the table or a guitar that's not behind the counter so people can get together easily? With forcing myself to talk to others, I truly loved the place, but if I was shy- it would've been a bit difficult to get to know others. Right by Sainsburys and Nandos! On the same line as Big Ben, Tower of London..etc.

Not a young crowd like some other hostels I have stayed at, but still a good time. Big common room with a good selection of movies and a really nice kitchen. The place is super clean which is really all you can ask for.

Staff gave a very warm welcome, and were also pretty attentive at front desk with any questions. I stayed twice, both in times in an 8-bed all-female dorm. Bathrooms - clean, and HOT water with good pressure. Never had to wait to use the shower. Second time I stayed, I got a room on the bottom floor, which was MUCH bigger than my first room on the 3rd floor. The duvet blanket is nice and warm and comfy. Very short walk to the metro. Cafes and restaurants nearby.

Staff were very friendly and helpful, location was so convenient. Bathrooms could have been a little bit cleaner and wifi didn't work on my phone but did on my laptop. Good energy and comfortable.

(Basic 3 Bed Private Shared Bathroom) Nice location, just few minute walk fm Earl's Court metro station and easy to access. 3 bedroom is clean, but the top(height) of lowest bed is a bit low...easy to hit the head. Poor wi-fi connect in 3/F room. One of the best breakfast I had in hostel and there is a dishwasher provided.

Good hostel, very friendly and helpful staff, a bit pricy, but, well, it's London prices :) Easy to get back at night as quite a few night buses go there! Also 24h reception. Overall, we're very happy with the stay!

This hostel felt like a home in terms of hospitality, safety, warmth, hygiene and general friendly atmosphere. The tone is one of mutual respect and helpfulness- the staff are efficient and kind ensuring a smoothly run environment. Thank you St James for helping me to enjoy London.

This hostel was in excellent location especially if u plan on flying out of Heathrow. But when the room rate says e suite it just means there is a ladies only showed. I was really annoyed by this I had a really early flight and paid for a room with e suite which was more pounds then a regular room, just to make my life easier .I did not get an e suite in fact the ladies bathroom which is apparently what I had as an e suite was two floors below my room. For extra ten pounds I was really unhappy!
