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

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.

Due to the cooperation with Belushis pub the hostel is filled with activity. The fact that it has a cinema of its own is quite nice too. The biggest drawback is that the toilets often are close to unusable due to said cooperation with the pub (due to being very dirty and not cleaned until the morning). The room was a bit noisy (not due to the residents). If you want to party in London this might be an excellent choice, you might not even have to leave the hostel for the party.

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

There is no power source available to everyone in the room. in a room with 12 people only two power sources available, without individual light on the beds. bad structure.

Hi, We sorry you didn't find the structure to be as good as it should be, we do our best but unfortunately with an old building like ours it's difficult to upgrade the electrics. We do provide plenty of extra sockets in the chill out room so guest will always have a socket available. 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

Came here as solo traveler and met SO many fantastic people. This hostel has a great vibe --- good for both groups and solo travelers (probably not families). Hostel is on the old side (definitely one of the older St Christophers), and the bathrooms and toilets got dirty pretty quickly, but it doesn't matter since you'll be having too much fun at the bar to care. Good location-walking distance to a lot of sites (Tate, Tower Bridge, etc). convenient from Gatwick (London Bridge tube/train station)

There were no private places even though I stayed at dormitory. And I saw two people using one bed naked. They can make private zone by curtain or quite zone on basement. One more, No place to smoke. It's legally prohibited smoking inside the building I understand that. but Just I smoked on the road in front of hostel. They should make enough terrace.

Hi, We're sorry you found there to be a lack of privacy, unfortunately it is sometimes hard to come by in a hostel and we do our best create some areas where there is some quiet. We do in fact have a roof top terrace where you are able to smoke without being on the street. 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

Super great staff - they tried super hard to ensure my party was satisfied after we learned (too late) that this was a party hostel, and were more than happy to give us rooms far away from the noise. That being said, we couldn't hear all their loud bar music, but practically everything else! The walls are all very thin so any noise outside your room is awkwardly loud. Many of the showers didn't work, but there were many in the building to use instead. The "party" atmosphere was fairly forced.

Comfortable enough. Nice atmosphere. But I was using the laundry and there was a party right beside it. Suddenly a security man entered the laundry, probably thinking we were on the party he quite rudely ordered us to leave. I tried to explain him my clothes were being washed and leaving in the morning and if he closed the laundry I would not be able to get them, which didn't work. The personnel only opened it on the morning, luckily my flight was not early. My clothes were carried wet at end.

It's unfortunate that you had such a bad experience with the security, rest assured we'll do our best to do better in the future. Hopefully we'll see you again soon! Many Thanks, St Christopher's Village team

Good Location. The rooms are not bigs but there is place to store bags under the beds. Too much entrances, doors and ways to get the room ... The staff at reception is good, but one security at the laundry room is stupid and so bad. He had no patience with my clothes when I was drying it ... I had to remove they wet. He was screaming like a fool guy !!

Great location, great atmosphere and friendly staff. Wifi and Internet were quite slow but I believe there were upgrades taking place for this. Rooms were average but a bed is a bed! Would stay here again!
