Street noise can be very loud at this location. Also, our private room had bunk beds--sort of a bummer for a couple. Otherwise, great location and pretty solid around.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hostel. Its decent value for money and its right across from an underground station which is a big plus. The bar is decent prices considering that you are in London.

Thankyou for your comment. It is a great location you're right. So easy to get around and even for the area we're in the bar prices are great! Especially with your hostel discount! Glad you took advantage of it. Hopefully see you again for a third visit. :)

Staff where awesome, Gus was a lad and the hot dutch girl was good for a laugh as well. pity some of the people staying at the hostel just wanted to stay to themselves otherwise it would of been a better stay.

Oh that does suck when there isn't a fun group of people in the hostel. It's definitely hit and miss but there's usually a few people at least that want to have a good time. If all else fails the staff are all keen for some drinks or seeing some sights and are always a good time.

I've never been in such a clean hostel! So perfect: clean toilets, showers and no dust at all! Highly recommend.

This hostel was an ok place to stay for a couple of days. The staff were friendly and even though it was a bit out of the way from Central London, the tube was literally across the road from the hostel. I've stayed in another St Christopher's hostel in London before & this one didn't seem to have the same atmosphere as the other one. The free breakfast is a plus. They did have free wifi, but you couldn't get good signal throughout the hostel.

Thank you for your feedback. It really depends on what the guests make of the place when it comes to atmosphere. Some weeks its a great place to party and other times it's a bit quieter. Whilst the hostel might seem slightly out of the centre it does only take 15 minutes on the tube to get into central London.

Room clean and comfy bed. Bar downstairs is shambolic pricey and poor enough pints. Some staff quite irratiting. Turned off lights and tv at 11 pm sharp in middle of footy match and started ordering people out. Not the way to run a bar.

If you use the lockers make sure your bag is in correctly. Spent a very stressful hour trying to get my bag out

No kitchen facilities. Excellent cleanliness and great lounge to hangout in the basement. Staff weren't friendly though.

Odd set-up with the hostel being over a bar and reception being at the bar, but a solid place to stay.

Owner Comment (Hide)
It's actually quite common and we like the idea as it gives guest somewhere to hang out and mingle and even the chance to meet locals in a comfortable environment. Also no one gets lost going home. :) Glad you enjoyed it nonetheless.

The bar was great, and the younger people working the bar and the front desk were great. Unfortunately the "hang out room" and the bathroom were absolutely disgusting. Also when we were checking out, at a very early hour, we were not helped at all and it was really frustrating. I would not recommend this place to my friends nor will I return.

Thats really disappointing that your stay had a bad turn. I'm really sorry you didn't find the night staff helpful. I really hope you reconsider. It's usually such a great vibe in the chill out room and we are due for a refurbishment very soon so everything will hopefully be all new and shiny. Anna

This hostel is in an excellent location. It's a bit dated but for the price and accessibility to central London it can't be beat. The staff was great.

They had lockers and the staff let us leave our luggage at the hostel after we had checked out. Their staff is excellent (very nice people). Standard breakfast was a bit poor, though the menu (4-6 pounds for a full english) was really great. The showers on our floor were out, so we had to share the second floor's shower facilities. Though these were cleaned every day, obviously it's pretty impossible to keep them clean with so many people using them and just one round of cleaning daily.

No kitchen facilities. Makes it an expensive stay because your constantly eating out. Being able to lock your things away should be standard.

Not much to like about this place, it was loud until day lights ear plugs couldn't help me sleep. The staff did nothing to stop a fight right outside our room door. The rooms were dirty, the 'chill room' was in terrible condition, and the laundry room? Just don't bother.

The hostal is a bit far from the center of the city but it´s pretty well connected through buses and metro. The bed was comfortable and breakfast was good. The comforter for the bed was a bit stained. The room was okay I happened to be there when it was hot and the room at night was just so so warm. Don´t stay if you can´t sleep with noise because of the bar downstairs. Staff was helpful the times I asked about things.

The hostel is actually 15 minutes on the tube into the centre of the city. It is a bit further at night when using busses. The noise in the bar stops at 11 on weeknights and 12 on weekends. Glad the staff were able to help you out with all their knowledge. :)
