I have stayed a couple times at this hostel and it really is average. There is usually only one staff member checking people in (no matter how many people are there) then after waiting someone else may come and help but you're usually waiting awhile. Bathrooms were pretty feral and could use a toilet brush in them. The food and drink deals at the bar are great, and 50% off Mexican in the basement between 5:30-7:30pm is amazing. Overall I probably wouldn't stay again.

Party hostel. Only stayed for one night but the beds were super comfortable and the was wifi was pretty good. Ended up buying breakfast because their free one wasn't very good. Hostel bar was pretty cheesy but crowded even on a weekday.

This hostel is ok if you're a backpacker stopping by for a weekend or a few days. Decently clean, good facilities, good staff, good location. It's good if you're looking for a group to party with.

This was almost the worst hostel i have ever seen although i travelled a lot around. The bathrooms were really dirty and ugly. The room was quiet uncomfortable. The windows could not be opened, the sheets were dirty and there was no placement area at all. The breakfast was ok. I tried to leave the hostel after breakfast and come back at night...

Building could use a refurbishing. Not quite enough shower rooms. Pretty good free breakfast, friendly staff, lots of common areas. Busy street but it was fairly close to the underground station.

Really dirty, and sharing toilets and showers. You have to pay for using the computers! You have to pay for the towels! I won't came back.

It was good for the price (paid 10 pounds a night for a bed in a 14 bed mixed dorm). People didn't snore and it was alright. A lot of noise from the street, and there was a mouse on the room one day. But, it's 10 pounds a night in central London.

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.

Hi, We're glad you enjoyed partying here! We do our best to make every guests stay as lively and fun as possible. I'm sorry you didn't find the staff to be the best thing here, we like to think we have the best staff around. If you send us an email with the details of what happened we'll definitely look into it. 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.

We apologise if you found the wash rooms to be gross, we do our best to keep them to a high standard, they're cleaned 3 times a day and if any member of staff discovers a problem we do our utmost to fix it as soon as possible. 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
