Hostel is located in great area for Tube stops - Borough&London Bridge. Check In is at Village = frustrating due to no notification. Hostel is down a side street = nice. Stairs permeate the building = tiring. 4 bed room was much smaller than preferred. Bed gave me backache every single day = most hated aspect. Breakfast was good at giving the basics - cereal, toast, drinks - nothing special. WiFi in hostel was okay for simple tasks.

Probably the best hostel in London. Don't expect high standards but London's standards are probably the lowest of Europe.

Very quiet place - perfect place if you just want to sleep and move on next morning. If you want to meet other travellers than I would recommend St Christopher's Village, located ~50m away.

The hostel was great! Especially the staff and the price. The pub was great for having some pints at noon. moreover on friday and saturday they play music live so, it's great to go there and have some fun. the breakfast it's also very generous. Thanks to Daniel and his staff for their atention.

Great location--close to Borough St. Market, restaurants (including cafe/pub downstairs) and Tube station. Easy access from Heathrow by Tube. Pub downstairs runs loud and late, earplugs available Light sleepers beware. Good free breakfast & free laundry self-service nearby at the SC Village registration desk-washers will run 2-3 hours if not set to "quick wash" setting--clean friendly & secure, nightly party noise warning, a drawback for some. Good Wi-fi in rooms. Overall a very good hostel.

This hostel was in a great location for everything with walking and also the tube for those further out attractions. Check in at the hostel 100m further down the road is not a big hassle but a tad annoying. Staff were very helpful and the bar attached to main hostel (100 m away is great)! Atmosphere is not great - no common areas. Also having a small kitchen with microwave etc would be nice, or even a sink to fill up a drink bottle. Bathrooms were good nothing special and rooms quite large.

Very good location. Cool staff and nice bar on the ground floor. A bit unusual that the place to do check-in and rooms are separated. Free breakfast is great, it'll be perfect with some fresh fruits or juice. Some shower rooms are not very convenient but others are good. Cleanness is not the best I saw, but it is also because of old age of building. For me the only negative point is the heater in the room : too hot to leave the windows closed !

Decent hostel. I liked the locked area under the beds, and being on top of a pub was pretty cool. -Colin (Canada)

Hostel well located in an old building above a nice pub. The hostel is full of character. I enjoyed my stay there because of cleanliness compare to any other hostel I have been in UK, the free breakfast, facilities (free shampoo inside the showers and hair dryer) and the location. I believe for some people it can be noisy but for me it was totally fine.

Hey, Thank you for this short but very nice review :)

Good location. Very expensive for what you get. Not much backpacker type atmosphere. Better of staying away from the"chain" hostels. Would be good for groups. Not solo travelers

I stayed at the Village before and had a not-so-great experience, but I figured I'd give the Inn a chance. Glad I did, it has a lot of character and you truly can't beat the location for the price. Other than the room mix-up on my arrival, and the fact that lockers cost £2 for just six hours, it was much better. Still no atmosphere though - the main bars are still full of groups of backpackers unwilling to socialise. Stay here if only for the location and warm beds though.

Thanks for this short but nice review ;)

The beds seemed clean, which was good. But otherwise: it is not enough that one cleans only on the middle of the floor. The floor is normally cleaned by the walls and under the beds as well. Why to have any extra broken furniture in the room since nobody can use it anyway?

I liked the hostel, but didn't like that the reception was in another building. Location is excellent. Bathrooms should be cleaned more often.

Small corridors and narrow stairs. Just one shower for a reasonable number of people, but everything worked fine. The room could have more plug sockets as well. I stayed just one night, so it was ok.

I really loved my stay here. I love the location because there are a lot of things to see around this hostel, the underground it´s really close and also there is a bar downstair. So, i recommend it! :)

Simply THE BEST HOSTEL IN LONDON!!!

It was a great location! Not the best place to stay if you want a good night of sleep because the bar is below the rooms and people in London like to party! It was a fun environment though! We were on the top floor of the hostel and in the middle of the night the room was super hot so I couldn't get the best night of sleep. But overall a good experience for my first hostel.
