Had a great stay. Room was very spacious which is not usually the case with hostels. Was as described in the online description on HostelWorld so we knew what to expect. Excellent location opposite the tube station and Westfield Shopping Centre. Would stay again and recommend to friends.

Surprisingly good value was low season, the showers on the first floor need redesigning perhaps have the doors opening outwards or OK Corral style doors and please lose the Prestex style controls and fixed shower heads (I know it's saves water) so one can clean the nooks and crannies :) Although I was not there long and really only slept there, it the staff were kind and friendly very laid back.

We had lots of problems: 1) We had to leave 50£ at the reception because we had no credit card (in many countries is not usual to have one, i think they should specifiy in the INFO). 2) The room was not very clean, bed and pillows were not comfortable at all 3) Our private room was 2 metres from showers, could hear water and people talking from 6 am. Half naked people everytime I went out my room! 4) Our window was on a big terrace people always went to smoke. Couldn't even open curtains

I should have looked at the description more than just the price and the ratings. This hostel is really for the party people and not for those like us who are up and about the whole day and just want a place to crash during the night. The room in the front suffer from constant noise of sirens from the street and on Thursday we were kept awake by the noisy guests. We hardly got any sleep that night. The included simple breakfast was nice.

hello I'm sorry your stay wasn't what you were hoping for. We do advertise ourselves as a youth hostel. The sirens are unfortunately due to the fact that there is a hospital only a few minutes away. We do apologize for it and we are trying to increase our sound proofing. I hope the rest of your stay wasn't to bad. Safe travels. Hostel team

Very frustrated with St Christophers this time. I booked 3 nights and was required to move rooms after my first night, which normally would be fine but I was quite unwell at the time. Secondly, once I had checked out after my first night I was told to leave my belongings in a corner in the common areas, or I could pay £3 for a locker, only after much prompting was it offered that I could leave my bags in the room. Wifi only works in bar and basement and breakfast ends at 9.30am.

Outside of building could use some TLC, but good security, great staff, clean beds. Creepy, hot, cluttered "lounge area", no wifi in bedrooms (but wifi downstairs). Bar/restaurant downstairs. Close to bus stop. Complimentary breakfast is very basic. Overall stay, pretty good for the money.

The staff were very nice, especially the blond/brown haired girl who predominantly works breakfast who helped us out of a jam, and tee? who was very knowledgeable. NFL on Sundays which is great for sports fans and breakfast is servicable. Nice hangout area downstairs. The wifi didn't work early in our stay but then improved 100% so I'm guessing it was simply a like issue. No room for a kitchen but they have a microwave and a very cheap supermarket literally a minute away. Location is A

Clean, good breakfast, friendly stuff, very close to tube station and westfield shopping center. Extremely noizy on the reception (very loud music in the bar) and in the rooms (busy street). Most windows does not closing properly. No Wi-Fi access in most rooms. If there is - disconnecting each minute.

Hello We apologize for the noise in the bar. On Fridays and Saturdays we have a DJ and Sundays we have a band playing. As for the windows, we are trying to have them fixed in the next few months. Our wifi has also been updated. I hope the rest of your stay we satisfactory. Safe travels Hostel team

I already sent a review directly to the hostel... (the request came parallel) My husband and I booked a double-bed room with private bathroom, and it was ok for the value. But 1 of the windows didn't close properly, and the breakfast options were limited... Nonetheless the staff was really helpful in any questions, the tube station was just accross the street, as well as the Westfield shopping mall (which is huge...). The room was relatively clean, not too big, but also cheap for London, so ok..

Too much of a party hostel for me...not my cup of tea...does not have a kitchen so for those who want same money cooking your meals and store food its not the right place.

Hello So sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us. As for the kitchen area, we have now added an area in the chill out room with a fridge and small kitchen area. Safe travels Hostel team

Pleasantly surprised. I was worried that there would be coach loads of backpackers on heavy drinking sessions on a one night hop on / off situation but that wasn't the case. The bar was lively and the breakfast was good considering you are in Lodnon and have just paid less than £15 a night! A good hostel in She' Bu!

Nice female dorm as there are no stupid 3 tier bunks here. Bathroom and shower located right outside the dorm. Staff were very helpful. Unfortunately the noise was unbearable had no sleep due to school tours staying- this happens often as I inquired. Breakfast was poor - cereal and toast with only cordial as juice.good location for the money.

Hello Sorry about the noise. People can sometimes be very inconsiderate about other guests. We have completely redone our breakfast.. Hope this experience hasn't put you off staying with us again. Safe travels Hostel team

Was an alright place to stay for a cheap price. The pros-cheap, handy to transport, bar downstairs, wifi in basement is ok, close to many food places. The cons-balcony outside our room was used for a late night drinking session by what were at least a few staff (their room also nearby), ripped off re-booking at reception (10 pound more per person than on hostel world), older staff members sleeping/yelling/swearing in common room, dodgy area late at night, no kitchen. I might go back cos it cheap

Great location, very friendly staff, nice touch with a free breakfast, toast, cereal, juice etc. Clean rooms and toilets/showers. Only improvement would be individual lights on the bunks and more ventilation as rooms get very hot

No curtains in room and not enough outlets to plug in electrical wares. Would be a good upgrade to have a plug by each bed.

Hey there, Thanks for the feedback. Not to long ago we had extra power outlets fitted in each room, they are hidden down beside various beds. Taking into account your feedback we are going to add some signs in the rooms pointing out the location of all the plugs in the rooms. Our rooms usually do have curtains however once a month they are taken down to be cleaned... We are sorry that this was an inconvenience. We will be looking at ways to minimise this whilst maintaining room cleanliness.
