Fun hostel in cool neighborhood. Only complaint is the showers with the push button u gotta keep pressing every 10 seconds to keep the water running.

Hi, Thankyou for taking the time to leave us a review, we really appreciate it. We have had the showers looked at so that there is a longer time limit between pushing the button. We hope this helps Safe travels Camden St Christopher'sTeam


Great staff. Great location in Camden, quick walk to the Mornington Crescent on the Northern Line, which will get you to the heart of London in under 15 minutes. If you are a beer lover, it is walkable to both a Brew Dog and Camden Town Brewery! Only bads are that it is a bit on the pricey side for a hostel, theres not much of a hostel atmosphere, and if you are on the 1st floor, you may as well stay up till last call on the weekends, you won't sleep over the noise from the pub underneath


The toilets were not clean

The hostel was in a great location – right on Camden High Street, 5 minute walk to the station. There were lockers under the bed and additional lockers downstairs. I really liked the chill out room. There were bean bags and books down there. Room was very clean. The staff were friendly. There is a free breakfast each morning. In addition you can buy food at the bar down stairs. I would stay again.


Excelent location and staff... But expesive as most things in London and without a kitchen and a really small living room... Really nice pub downstairs.


I stayed here for a week while visiting London. The hostel is near lots of bars so you're likely to be chatted up by drunk guys as you walk back at night (this happened to me twice). Security is good though- they have card access to the hostel and rooms, and handy lockers that pull out from under the beds. Things are mostly clean, although they didn't empty the trash in the bathroom for several days straight and it was quite overfull. If I were to stay in London again I'd go somewhere else.


Definitely coming back to stay for our next gig in Camden

Great place in a great location. Facilities great, pub great, really nice beds and in a fantastic area. Couldn't have asked for a better stay. Get up early to catch the free breakfast and you find you make better use of the day!


The staff were very friendly and helpful. The meal and drink deals at Belushi's were really great, especially since a lot of places in the neighbourhood were a bit more expensive. The hostel atmosphere was good, and of course having a bar downstairs was extra convenient! Would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Camden/London. Thanks!

It was kind of strange to enter through the Belushi's bar and try to find where to check in (it's to the right of the bar, BTW) but everything was clean and they were cool about letting me use a locker after I'd checked out. Having an ensuite bathroom and shower in the dorm room is great.


Only stayed for one night, fantastic location in Camden! Comfy beds although the top bunk was a little creaky :) Would stay here again!


We always try to stay here when in London. Great location, great staff and good bar downstairs.


The room was too small for a private room. Cleaning should be more efficient. Good staff. Great location.


I had a great experience there! Lucy was fantastic and very welcoming. Great location, definitely no complaints what so ever. Thanks so much!


Very good positiion, near to Camden and to 2 Underground stations. Has no the typycal Hostel atmospheare (the chill out room is small and not that welcoming, no chance to cook your own meals), but it is located in a Pub. This made my staying charming and authentic. I was sleeping in a 8 bed dorm with some of the guys in the crew of the hostel that had their 24 h shifts timing, and sometimes got back in the room very late and drunk and noisy.

A great hostal! It's above a bar that you can chill out, drink, eat and meet people. When I was there there was also open mic night and there were people who really are musicians and could sing and beatbox and play instruments, boy! Also, when you're staying there you get 25% off food and there are other specials. Didn't eat breakfast because it's only from 7-9am. The location is great, just a 5 min walk to Camden Market and with the northern line right around the corner to get to the city cente


Cold shower, no curtains on the windows and you have to pay for secure luggage storage. But free wifi and the other travellers were good fun.


Had the most pleasant stay St Christopher's Inn.. The staff were amazing! I highly recommend staying here. I know I will be back! Close to the markets, two train stations either side of you! Honesty the best place to stay. Clean, safe and you will have a great time.


Excellent Location, and the staff is very helpful.


I had a fantastic time here! The only problem was that the lockers were not working however there were lockable boxes in the bedrooms that were fine. I was travelling on my own and found it easy to meet people here. An added bonus is free laundry! I would stay again for sure
