always a great place to stay, it was my second time in this hostel, and will come stay again when in London...
Great place to stay. The staff is super cool and super friendly. They definitely want to have you enjoy your stay. And very helpful too. My buddy and I almost couldn't get back to Paris to catch our flight home because of the air traffic control strike. But when I mentioned this to the staff everyone helped us figure out a way back. Ana was super helpful and did everything she could to help us. Definitely will stay there again.
Nice Aussie run bar downstairs, close to the tube and portobello markets but not much else.
Good location... Great bar underneath... Can't complain

Nice hostel, good breakfast. Not the cleanest place I´ve stayed at, but OK overall
OK place for the money. A bit confusing for 1st time visitors
Need to get some more ventilation in the chill out room. Need to improve the wifi.
I would recommend any st Christopher's hostels because all that I have gone to are great! The only thing that wasn't that great was it wasn't really close to much but there was a metro across the road so it was easy to get to things that way
Noisy place depending on the room you get.
This is a great hostel if you're coming with a group but not as a solo traveler. It has a nice bar but since its open to the public it's hard to meet other travelers. The common room is in the basement and is nothing special. The bed was very comfortable but there aren't enough toilets, the showers smell like urine, and hey don't clean the bathrooms often so the toilet pepper runs out. They had activities posted but all the sheets were old so I didn't know what was going on while I was there.
We stayed there just one night but the staff were all very helpful and it was easy to get to the underground which is right across the street!
Dirty, just plain dirty. Only one women's bathroom, which was dirty the entire time of my stay and never fixed. There was noone in my room, and I just asked for a bottom bed as soon as I checked-in since I have problems with my knees; and no one even tried to help me. You would think its kind of centralized location, but taking the overground there is a pain. Just do the underground instead. Interesting location but too far away from the city center = expensive, if you are going to travel a lot.
Some people were on the back deck and the windows were so thin that they kept me awake. Perhaps consider not allowing people up there.
The most interesting experience when I arrived later after 23 and I had to check in in the nighclub, in the midst of people dancing and kicking up their heels. Definitely felt the groove. Friendly staff, and I do recommend it, the bathroom on 3rd floor which I used was in bad shape.
I liked it enough, the only problem I had were the other guest being loud, and the prices of towels.
Once again an awesome place to stay, will be and have already recommended to friends.
The staff here go above and beyond to help out with whatever questions you have
I had a very nice stay. I would have liked for there to have been better showers and for it to be possible to check in before 2:00.
A reasonable hostel in a good location directly opposite the tube. The cleaning was average and given the number of people in the hostel the bathrooms could easily have been cleaned twice. Belushis bar below was noisy on a weekend, not that it was an issue to us. The bar was then hang out space as the chill out room was a bit of an airless bunker. Wifi was good. Sheets etc were clean.
Has an awesome/lively bar downstairs, which is a lot of fun, especially if travelling with friends. Bar offers great food at reasonable prices with discounts available. Located across from Shepherds Bush tube station makes getting around town a breeze. Newer/safe neighborhood, stress free environment. Facilities could use a facelift (mainly the bathrooms) but all in all not a bad spot to stay, especially if you are younger or looking to party. Standard security and nice/helpful staff.
