Breakfast was great, but other than that it was loud and they didn't have all the amenities that they said.

Thank you very much for your review and your stay in our hostel! Sorry about the bunk, we well work on this point for in the future! And the carpet is not a bad idea! Thank you! Camden - Reception Team


Really cool hostel, with a nice bar downstairs which does great deals for people staying there. Internet worked well, and everything was clean. The showers can be extremely hot and you have no control over the heat. I was really happy with the two female staff I spoke to, but the male staff member that checked me in the 2nd time was extremely rude!!! He made me feel uncomfortable. I had a great experience here apart from the male staff member.

Thank you for your amazing review! Sorry about the shower, we are working on the temperature do get it down. Sorry for the 2nd check-in we will check what happened and we will talk with male staff member. Glad to hear you had an amazing time with us! Safe travels! Camden - Reception team


the sink had bad smell and the breakfast had almost nothing to eat. Overall, this st christopher inn is well below other st christopher I was (Paris, Barcelona and Edinburg).

Hi there, Thank you for your review we really appreciate that! We find your helpful for our hostel. Nice to read that you enjoyed your stay here with us. If you plan to come back in your hostel in the future you will see that thing has been changed! Enjoy your trip and safe travels Camden Team:)


St. Christopher's is definitely one of the best hostels I've stayed in, they have a great location between two underground stations, very near of the Camden Market, in general it was an excellent experience.


Good location close to camden tube station.. rooms were spacious


The location was the best thing about this booking. the 6 bed room has only 1 light switch, but the room is adequately sized, which means that if 1 person needs the light at 3am, everyone's closed eyes are blasted. Additionally, en-suite here means that a shower is in the room and the toilets are in the corridor. The food in the bar was good, the continental breakfast is good as well. If you upgrade your breakfast, it is served AFTER the continental (after 9am), so don't plan an early start.


Bathrooms and showers weren't great but acceptable. Bar has great food for a lower price than available around the area. Overall a decent hostel.


Great location with mostly helpful staff. Breakfast was quite good, and the discounts offered in the joint bar were good value. Cleaners were always around, which is good to see that everything is kept on top of. Common area is horribly humid and stuffy, with pirated dvd's, not the best atmosphere.


Nice hostel, has a cool bar downstairs with great pub food. On Camden high street, close to bus and metro stops.


Great place! Awesome atmosphere! Would benefit with a simple kitchen (microwave & fridge) in the common room down stairs...


Just a lifeless big hostel, bar with bunks up stairs. Not what you really want.

Hi, Apologies your stay with us was not what you had anticipated. Unfortunately we are not to everyone's taste. Our moto is live your life and party hard, such a shame you didn't feel the energy whilst you were staying! We do hope you will try us again or another of our hostels in future Safe Travels Camden Team


With the rooms being in the same complex as the bar - with loud music each night - you won't sleep until after 12. Free earplugs are good, but not up to the job. On the 1st night of my stay, a row started outside after 12 lasting nearly an hour, and a few people came in drunk afterwards, snoring loudly for a while. The bar can receive deliveries overnight, which can result in beer kegs rolling on the pavement at 5am too. Bring a big padlock for the under-bed lockers. Otherwise, a great hostel.

Hey There, Apologies for our deliveries, unfortunately these are things we cannot control. We are aware that we have music on until 12 during the week and 2am at weekends but we do inform our guest of this on our website so they can make an informed decision with all the information they need. We are happy thought hat you enjoyed your time with us and do hope to see you again Regards Camden Team


Hate that it didn't have stairs and wifi was not working in the rooms but the atmosphere downstairs and location is worth it. it's a hostel for people who want to go explore not hideout in there rooms

Hi, Unfortunately we don't have lifts in Camden as we are a small hostel with very little room for these. Although staff are happy to help carry your luggage if its too much for you. We do have wifi in the rooms although we have had some issues recently so apologies for this and it is getting fixed. We all love working in Camden as we have a superb location with many things to do. You are never bored here Travel Safe Camden Team


Hostels location is perfect! Staff is ok, but it can be hard to meet people here.


Sweet little pub and hostel right in the heart of Camden! Decent facilities and great grog and drinks too, makes for a perfect little spot to branch out into the markets and London too with plenty of public transport to get you back no matter the hour.

Hey, So happy that you had a good time with us all here. Camden is very unique and we LOVE it, so glad you do too. Happy travelling and visit us again Regards Camden Team


The atmosphere of the pub is awesome but the hostel is not equally good. During summer at nigjt the bedrooms are like saunas, on the 1st floor you can hear all the music downstairs. The beds are okay just like the breakfast.

Hi, We are so sorry that you didn't enjoy your time with us, we know it gets hot upstairs when the weather is great, that's why we have got all new fans for our rooms so you can keep cool. We do like to party and we inform our guest of this on our website, apologies if this disturbed you. We pride ourselves on offering a great selection at breakfast to our guests, we also offer an alternative cooked breakfast very cheap for those who are not a fan of continental. Regards Camden Team


Two words: FREE. LAUNDRY. Definitely enough to win any long term backpacker over. This is a really great place above an awesome bar where guests get good discounts. The hostel was very clean and staff were always friendly and helpful. Probably the best place I've stayed in London.

Hi There, We are stoked you enjoyed your time with us, we love the free laundry for guest to as that means you can travel with nice clean clothes and be fresh as a daisy! Very important in the hot/cold weather. Come and see us again some time Regards Camden Team
