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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

As i said earlier, I had no hassle with the hostel. I checked in at 2300 and checkout at 0400 without a problem, the music and ambiance of the bar were welcome and the ensuite room beckoned my sleep. Friendly people in and out of the place, a coin locker useful and working good, my only worry is that i didn't manage to stay for breakfast or have a pint and a bit to eat before being on my way. WIll come back!

Set up of the hostel was cool. The bar downstairs and the people who work there were awesome. Wifi not great and charging room was extremely warm. Also the laundry services were extremely unclean and we opted not to use. Many travelers live at the hostel two weeks on and two weeks off and they were disrespectful to other guests.

Hi, We really value our guest comments so thankyou for taking the time to leave them for us. We have a 2 week maximum policy at the hostel so that we do not have long term guests getting too comfortable. All of our guests are important to us and we take steps to resolve anyone being disrespectful to others! Apologies if you found the laundry area unclean, housekeeping clean this area daily but guests are free to use the rest of the time. Happy travelling Team Camden

Friendly staff, very clean beds, friendly people. Got to know most people I can across. Mostly 20-25 guests, some older folk. Close to northern line, a few km from downtown london.

I stayed here before and decided to come back as I had a nice time last time. This time I opted for a smaller room and it actually felt a bit more cramped than the larger room I was in previously with more beds. The only downside was the check in process as the bar was packed and the two staff were focussed only serving them that it took nearly 10 minutes to get their attention.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi There, Thankyou so much for your review, we really appreciate them. Apologies for your wait at check in time. At times we can get unexpectedly busy and try our very best to deal with guests asap. We do hope that you choose to visit us again and we will give you a free shot for your trouble this time around. Just let us know who you are on arrival Happy travelling Camden Team

Typical London hostel above a bar, Belushis which is super cool to hang out with locals. Room was good and breakfast was nothing special but did the job. I didn't like that you can't control the water temperature in the shower and that the toilet flush almost didn't work. The ventilation shafts across the bathroom are extremely loud and very annoying and most people in my room where complaining. Bring ear plugs! All in all a nice hostel and I will stay again!

Hello, We thankyou for your comments, they helps us a lot. We are glad you had a nice time with us. Apologies for the water temp, we have had maintenance look into the issue. We do have free ear plugs at reception for those who wish them. We will look forward to you coming back again, let us know and we will give you a free shot at the bar Take care Camden Team

Overall this hostel was really good! Super fun location with lots of pubs and markets. Also you may think it's far from everything, like the big sites, but it's only about an hour walk. Breakfast was good but ended kind of early if you wanted to sleep in. Everything was clean enough, shower kinda sucked though. They have really good deals on the food and drinks in the bar there and the food was good. I would definitely stay here again

Really great place, except for their horrible WiFi. You can only surf the web, all other ports are blocked and it's REALLY Slow!
