The hostel is in a somewhat good location, but the staff was very rude, the room noisy and the bathroom not clean.

Extremely noisy, with my bed near the window and a lot of traffic in the road below. It was very cheap though.

Hi, it can be noisy at times, if you would have asked the staff to put you in a quieter room, i'm sure they would have done their best to do so, as we go above an beyond for our guests in order to insure their comfort. Next time you come over just make sure to ask for a room on the other side of the hostel. See you soon Alin.

Stayed here a few times now! Perfect place for me. Close to Shepherd's Bush Academy/Empire for the gigs I go to. Easy to get to from Heathrow with an underground all day travel pass costing £8.90!

Staff is great (especially Iris), beds are comfy. The rooms, showers and toilets weren't really clean (they're looking for new cleaning staff). Showers are plenty but not very hot. The hostel has a bar and restaurant on ground floor with music playing very loud until midnight, so bring earplugs if you need an early night. Free internet is available but very slow and unstable (used to be faster and stable). I've stayed here before, it's still not bad, but it was better at previous stays.

Hi, Iris is over the moon for being mentioned, she would have appreciated top marks though :D All in all we are sorry your stay wasn't as great as other times, but next time i guarantee you wll see some changes in our cleanliness standards. See you soon Alin.

Perhaps my favorite budget hostel in London. No kitchen unfortunately and the weekend prices for a bed are astronomical. Its a good place on weekdays. One morning I was charged 1.50 Pounds for a cup of brew but the next morning a cup of coffee cost 0.50p.. The third morning the brew was free :) Love this place.

As you can see we appreciate and reward return customers, prices on the weekends vary depending on how early you make the reservation, hopefully next time we will manage to earn full marks on cleanliness including:D See you soon! Alin

Overall this hostel was pretty good. The staff was great and very genuine. The hostel washrooms weren't very clean and I didn't find them woman friendly. There were problems with our keys and sometimes it was hard to enter into our hostel rooms. I thought the location was pretty good as well. The hostel is located away from the center, therefore you can see were local Londoner's would live. There is a tube station directly across from the hostel, so it is extremely easy to get around London.

I'm glad to see you had a good time, we are working on improving our cleanliness standards all the time, we are going to try and make the shared bathrooms mor female friendly, we are installing new high-end locks on the hostel doors very soon, so no more problems with that, Looking forward to seeing you back soon Safe travels! Alin.

PROS: clean, lockers inside rooms, good beds and good breakfast. Great location and adorable staff. Very good wi-fi. CONS: noisy, bad bathrooms and bad showers.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you, we are working on improving our facilities, i promise next time the showers will be better and make sure to ask for the rooms on the top floor, they are quieter. Safe travels Alin.

It was an alright stay overall, great location with the underground, overground and Westfield right accross the road. Having reception in the bar was horrible if you needed anything. Was going to extend my stay but after 20mins of no service I gave up. Kept having a guy come into room at all hours, couldnt tell if he was staying in there, as the next morning another person would be sleeping in that bed. Bathrooms needed to be cleaned more often as well especially on floor 1.

Dear guest, thanks for taking the time to write a few words, we apologize for the wait in the bar, it can become a bit hectic at times, in terms of cleanliness i can guarantee we are improving that and about the guy in your room coming in at all hours, that's the hostel life :D Anyways hope to see you back soon!

Absolutely enjoyed my stay. Nice and clean bedrooms, nice programme for the bar (karaoke, live band, etc) and really friendly staff. Danielle, Ans, Alyce and Gus have been really helpful whenever I spoke with them and it was always a fun time to hang out with the staff people! Definitely worth the money.

Location is very good! Across Shepherd Bush station (central line and overground), the bus stop also just near the hostel where you can go to central easily. Breakfast is good. Big common room with big TV screen.

Cannot credit this hostel enough - the atmosphere & staff at St Christopher's are completely unique! Each and every one of the staff members we met; Gus, Taylor, Quinn, Danielle, Louis, Joey, Alyce, Nikki, Ang & Anna were just the best! They were full of useful tips & helpful information for us & could not have been more accommodating. Thank you all again for everything! Lots of love Catrina, Jen & Nicola #YOLOswag :) xx

Very good location, right across from the underground station. Good acess to famous attractions, I loved the pub, really friendly staff and good atmosphere, cheap drinks and good music. I also liked the neighborhood, many options for food, supermarkets, a really good market. I just think cleanliness should be improved... the bathrooms on the first floor were usually very dirty....and the "kitchen' too... very messy.... but I would stay at this hostel again, it's worthy for the price.

Hi Camila, Thank you for the feedback, we do apologize about the mess, must've been on a very busy night, but still that's no excuse, next time we promise it's going to be sparkling throughout. As it is now :D Safe travels!

Daniel, thank you for the review, we do like to think that we're located just far enough from the city centre to experience the tube and and/or the overground in order to do some sightseeing, maybe when the nice weather comes and you come and visit us again, anyways, see you next time!
