Cages under beds are very frustrating to use. Would much prefer locker to place valuables in. Showers were a little dirty. Having to pay for storage lockers is a pain as well.

The stay was for the most part very enjoyable! They provided a basic breakfast for free each morning which was perfect and the location of the hostel was very convenient for getting around. The hostel also had a bar in house which had good music and karaoke. The only compliant would be the cleanliness of some of the bathroom facilities. Would definitely recommend this hostel to others.

This hostel was disgusting. The bathrooms immediately after cleaning had hair all over them, & toilets wouldn't flush. Gross. Also since it is a party hostel, noises are expected to be higher than the average place. They are. You will also get roommates that turn on the lights in the middle of the night for hours and are very loud when they back from going out. In the chill out room people like to blast music....party is downstairs not where people are relaxing and whatnot. Would not recommend.

Sorry for the the noise, but you are right we are a party hostel and want our guests to have an awesome time. We wish you all the best for future travels and hope to see you back soon.

The lockers are great, you can open your locker as many times as you want during the renting period and that is a nice feature. In addition, you also have some cages below your bed so you can put your stuff inside and lock it.

Our stay at this hostel was great except for minor things, There were only 2 outlets in a room for 10 people, and the outlet was under someone's bunk so we were constantly having to move the bunk-bed to access the plug. Overall, great stay! also, don't leave warm milk on the counter for several hours at breakfast, its a health hazard!

Hey, Thanks for your great feedback and for rating us with a 100%. We are currently looking into installing more sockets in all our rooms. We are now reviewing our options for the milk storage during breakfast, thanks for bringing this to our attentions. However we never had any problems with milk being off at all. We wish you all the best for future travels and hope to see you back soon. Thanks, St. Christopher's Team

Very nice place! The showers could be cleaned more often...

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hey, Thanks for your feedback. We clean our showers three times a day, but it's not always easy to stay on top of things. We therefore encourage all our guests to inform the 24hrs reception in case of any issues. We wish you all the best for future travels and hope to see you back soon. Thanks, St. Christopher's Team

Friendly outgoing staff, excellent location in the centre of London. Price is o.k. And it is nice that hostel has own resteurant and bar that is so long open. As I dont eat glutein and I am vegetarian too, there was no anything for me in the breakfast (bread and cereal only, no fruits) but bf is free. Resteurant had one option, rainbow salad, that was too poor. For most of the people resteurant and it´s nice 25% discount is good

too noisy in midnight, not so good for those who prefer quietness, the plug seats in the dormitory room are far from enough, it would be better that every bed have one.

Hi, Thankyou for your review, they help us a lot and we can learn from them. Unfortunately we do have some noise from outside due to our location but we do provide free earplugs for those that wish them. Regards St Chris Team

Great place and a lot of fun all around. Good location for the money, just the facilities need a little updating since they are very old, and to be cleaned a bit more.

room was clean and nice enough. water in the shower goes from hot to cold and back again every 10 seconds - not unexpected considering the low room cost. bar and common area were great for meeting new people, socializing, partying. receptionists were nice and helpful. would come back again!

We only stayed one night but didn't sleep much because the traffic was very loud throughout the night. The hairdryer in the ladies bathroom was broken. The beds were clean, the staff was friendly. All in all, it was ok. Nice, that you get free breakfast-

Hi Thanks for the review, it can be a bit noisy sometimes due to us being in the centre of London, so it's great when you are off sight seeing :) We do provide free ear plugs in reception for all of our guests to try and aid a good nights rest. Thanks again for the review St Chris Team

Nice hostel, well located and it was very convenient to have a restaurant down stairs but sometimes it gets a bit noisy. It definitely needs outlets in the rooms (I had to charge my phone in the stairs). But overall it was a good stay.

One of the best hostels I've stayed in. The staff was excellent.

The experience is generally the same in all St Christophers; the price is the main appeal, but you obviously pay for it in character. It is massive and the breakfast on offer is one of the worst I've ever had.We had a particularly bad experience staying in the largest and cheapest room and I would definitely recommend NOT staying in one of these- unless you enjoy theft and pant-less perverts! It's just not worth it!The staff however were helpful and friendly.

Not even close to a good Hostel. The cleaning staff are rude. You can tell they do not enjoy their job.The front desk staff however, are very nice and helpful. The bathrooms are disgusting. I believe a hostel this big should have their facility cleaned multiple times throughout the day, but hey that's just my opinion. The 25% discount is probably the best thing about the hostel. Very little socializing and WIFI only works in the Chill Out Room. There's storage under the beg so bring a lock.
