Great location across from Borough Market and just down the street from the Tube stop and London Bridge. Wi-fi in the room can be spotty from time to time, and the password to log on is a bit of a nightmare to figure out the first time. Staff is very helpful, they know the city well, and were even kind enough to make a reservation at a local Indian restaurant when we inquired about good places to eat. The in-room lockers are large enough to fit just about any suitcase.

Thank-you for taking the time to let us know how your time with us was!! We're stoked to see you taking advantage of our central location, and the diverse range of food London has to offer:):) We're glad the staff were there to answer any questions you had, they take pride in living in this beautiful city! Make sure next time you take advantage of them, we make our password 1234 so that all guests can access it with ease, we will make sure to mention that next time;) Hope to see you soon!!

Pros: great location. Busy hostel, great for meeting people. Seemed to be lots of single travelers. Bfast was good. Cons. Showers were busy and reception about a 5 to ten minute walk from the rooms. Would stay again!

There was no kitchen. The room was hot. The shower room was dirty. The social area was boring and stuffy. There were signs here and there to warn guests there would be fine for things not properly done according to their rules, such as leaving the towel on the floor when leaving and using the extinguisher properly. Seriously? If there was a fire and I tried to save people but used the extinguisher inappropriately, you wouldn't have the heart to charge me 50 pounds, would you? That's just stingy!

Locker is not free

They never seemed to clean the room between check-outs and rarely if ever changed the sheets promptly. The system of assigning beds resulted in multiple instances of someone getting locked out of the room because the staff had assigned more than one person to the same bed. People often needed to switch beds after their first night; sheets would not be changed during this time. The rubbish bins in the toilets were overflowing with used pads and tampons and were not emptied upon complaint.

Quite a decent place to stay in London. A stone's throw from the London Bridge underground station. The main hostel is a great place to hang out/eat/drink.

Loud at night because its right on a busy street. Only one shower stall per floor so you have to wait a while.

I had 2 probems in the 1st day: showers and wifi not working. In the 2nd day, shower was ok but wifi was still not working for 2-3 days. We could use wifi in another St Chritopher hostel in the same street, but still it is not practical. Both were quite good when started working. Great location, close to train stations (connecting to Gatwick), subway, etc. Absolutely clean! A very complete breakfast. They ask for the number of your credit card during check-in and I do not like it very much...

The wi-fi was broke and even after 4 days they didn't fix it. That's a shame! But overall our stay was good

Reception's about 200yds along the road. OK (ish) for check-in and -out, but not when the key doesn't work late at night and you have to trek down Borough High St. The shower wasn't clean and didn't work. No towel, tho promised. Bed-side lamps are plugged in to adapters - not sure how safe that is long term. Breakfast in the bar nr reception, but I wanted to get to work to use the shower, so was fed up by then, so didn't try breakfast. (Hot breakfast not available til after 9am) :(

We stayed in the 8 bed female dorm at Oasis. Overall a very good experience. Was a bit pricey but for London that's to be expected! Our key cards both stopped working on our second to last day, and still wouldn't work after we walked down the road to the reception and back to the room which was frustrating. Breakfast wasn't anything to write home about but it was free which is always the main thing hey! The hostel was clean and staff were very friendly and the location was simply unbeatable.

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to review us, we are really glad that you enjoyed your time with us. Apologies for the key cards, we do have the free phone for guests use in Oasis which connects straight to reception. The staff would have been happy to come to you with new key cards. We are lucky to be situated in a fantastic location! We hope to see you in the future Happy Travels The team at St Chris Village

Love that is so close to the tube station. Lovely breakfast. Hope to have more powerpoints in the room, the inconvenience is the checking in over at The Village.

Hi there, Thanks a lot for the review, its really appreciated. We are extremely lucky to be situated near the underground, with easy access to the main London attractions. Unfortunately the Oasis is too small to have a reception, staff are more than happy though to help guests along with their luggage should they require. Safe & Happy Travels The team at Village
