This place is mad, I only stayed here for a night but wish I stayed here longer! Staff are very friendly and helpful, rooms are nice and spacious with lockers under each bed. I would and already have recommended this too friends. Also if you arrive before check in or check out early and need to leave your backs they have actual individual lockers rather than just a big baggage room so you know your stuff is secure

Had a great stay the on the first leg of our trip! Booked a 4 bed room with some friends-great rooms. On our journey home we decided to stay in the same hostel. Unfortunately they were going through some reception reconstruction and we didn't even realize the place was open. When we found to go in through the restaurant we had to lug our luggage down to flights of stairs where the make shift reception area was- it would've been ok if the girl was a little nicer. The 8 bed also smelled quite funk

This hostel was alright. The atmosphere is good if you like a party hostel feel. But what really got me were the rooms and bathrooms. They weren't clean at all! Our room had a mouse in it for a few nights. The shower flooded and you had to wear flip flops. It looked like the entire hostel needed a clean. Other then the cleanliness, the staff were great, and it was a good price and location!

I just choose this hostel because of its location but it wasn't a good choice at all. I stayed there for a whole week, which was a very hot week, and not once the sheets in my bed were changed. Also the bathroons/washroons are disgusting. I understand it's cinsidere a party-ish hostel but they don't have limits at all. People were drinking in my roon with lights ON all night and I complain in the reception but they said they were sorry and couldn't do anything. It was a terrible experience.

Hi, We're sorry you didn't enjoy your experience here at the Village. Unfortunately this past summer was unusually hot and old London buildings weren't designed with A/C. We'll definitely look into why the receptionist wasn't able to do anything about your room mates, while we're a party hostel we do ask guests to stick to the bar or chill out room to party. Hopefully you'll be back in the future and we can change your mind! St Christopher's Village team

Good stay, definately a party hostel. Dorms have lots of room, beds are comfy. Toilets are dirty but i wasn't suprised. Big common area and a roof top for partying. Staff wasn't the hightlight of the stay at all.

Hopefully you'll be back in the future and we can show you how awesome we can be! Many Thanks, St Christopher's Village team

Positives: location was great, close to the tube and London Brigde. It was also close to some great pubs to start the night. The staff were very friendly and helpful as well. The lockers for baggage storage were convenient too. Negatives: bathrooms and showers were nasty and the toilets didnt flush properly. The key cards stopped working at 8am on the day of checkout which was. The chill out room was pretty gross also. Overall, for cheap central accommodation I would recommend and stay again.

I really hate the very expensive lockers :( In other hostels you can store your baggage for free. Toilet brushs would also be nice.

Hi! We're sorry that you found the lockers to be expensive, while you're checked in you have cages under the beds to store your belonging. We think that for storing things after check out £3.50 for a large locker for 24 hours is a reasonable price. Unfortunately we don't have much space for a luggage room which is why we installed lockers in the common area. Hopefully you'll be back in the future! Many Thanks, St Christopher's Village team

Hostel was fine, staff were great and always helpful and available. Bathrooms on my floor were disgusting and there was a vile smell in them for the duration of my stay

Security was very poor, did not have to use my key to get into the building, floor or room - anyone could just walk in. Staff we're slow and didn't know a lot of answers (train for airport etc) but friendly. Showers flooded bathrooms and no seat on toilet on first floor. Still good location and clean. Love curtains on the beds.

Have stayed at this hostel a few times. One of my favorites! however, this time the facilities were not clean, some toilets were blocked for hours and showers were a mess. I have a great time staying here but this time was a bit underwhelming. Also lack of power points in the rooms was frustrating.

Is was loud the whole night and the bathrooms are not clean, but for two nights it is ok.

Hi, We're sorry you found it loud, with a bar attached and being on a busy road it can be a bit noisy, but we do offer free earplugs at reception.

The staff were aweosme, and this hostel was the most fun I had in 4 months of Travel. The setup and special events in the attached Belushi's bring people together and make it hard not to make friends and have fun.

Better organisation of allocating people to rooms is needed. We were relocated unnecessarily which was very inconvenient

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi, We're sorry that you had to much, sometime it's unfortunately unavoidable because of large groups booking out entire rooms. We do our best to avoid it but it does sometimes happen. Hopefully you'll give us another chance and come back so we can show you an awesome time" Many Thanks, St Christopher's Village team

I will definitely come back! The location is amazing...I walked everywhere! The room was clean, though there was a mouse in our room...I'm not sure if that's normal or not. THe place is huge but very easy to meet people. They have a great chill out room and cinema where there are pretty much always people. The free breakfast is good and the food at the bar is delicious!

Hi, It's great that you enjoyed your stay so much! We're sorry that you had a mouse in your room, it's not a normal occurrence but sometimes with old buildings they can get in to try and find food. We do our best to stop it and our pest control company does regular checks. Hopefully you'll be back in the future and you can party with us again! Many Thanks, St Christopher's Village team

Good hostel. Very personal feel - Massimo is a gracious host. The wifi works well everyone in the building (something I have found to be very rare). Massimo is a one-stop spot to everything you could need in Palermo (bikes, shuttle to airport). Breakfast is included. Air conditioning is extra. The building is very well kept/clean but there is only 1 shower for ~12 people so sometimes you may wait. It is about a 15 minute walk to the beach/restaurants.
