The price is pretty good for the location, the place is very nice and comfortable, and the staff was friendly. Just the bathroom was not very good, but still ok.

We had a lot fun, it was easy to meet people, and a fun bar atmosphere with great drink deals! Unfortunately, we got an iPad, some clothes, and bags stolen. The lockers under the bed are not very secure or safe. I recommend using the lockers on the bottom Floor, but that is pretty inconvenient. The wifi does not work at all in the rooms, and isn't great in the lobby. Also, the water was turned off one morning, which sucked.

The hostel is wonderful! The rooms and washrooms were very clean and kept that way daily. The staff were very helpful for a number of requests and the breakfast was awesome for being free! Would definitely stay here again :)

It felt like I was living at a frat party. Not quite what I was expecting. People kept running into our door and screaming in the hall. I was very glad to have a private room and didn't attempt to go out once we went to bed. At one point It sounded like there was about to be a fight in our hallway. When we got up in the morning neither of us dared use the bathroom or shower because they were in only ok condition at 22:00 and didn't dare try them after so many drunk people had been in the hall

Good solid place. I liked it overall! The only thing that could use work would be the bathrooms and showers - they were pretty grungy and not appealing in the least. Not renovations - just cleaner!

The staff here are so lovely!!! Any questions ask these guys cause they know their stuff. Beds were very comfortable and all areas including hostel room and bathrooms were clean, constantly saw cleaners around making sure everything was in order! The atmosphere is amazing with the great Belushis Bar attached, where the food is great value and staff were happy to advise on the best food and drinks for your dollar. Love it here will definately be back! Thanks guys :)

Absolutely loved my stay with St Christophers!! Fantastic location and the staff are so amazing. Helped me with directions and gave great deals on tours and travel beyond London. The facilities are so great and having the bar right there is a massive bonus when you are travelling on your own. The only annoying thing was the lack of power points and Wi-Fi in the rooms but that is such a minor criticism, I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will definitely be back!

Great hostel. Everything you need. Facilities could be a little cleaner but it's the guests that are messy. You can see them cleaning often. Location is great, by train stations. Bar is good. There aren't many plugs but it works. Free washer and dryer! Staff is great. Free breakfast was good.

Clean beds and spacious room. I liked the underbed storage cages too! Wifi was a but rubbish but for the price and location it was perfect for a night!

Hey thanks so much for the review, we're happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! As for the WiFi, you are correct, at the moment it only hits our ground floor and lobby area. We hope you did notice during your visit though the several men installing wires all over our building for our brand new building wide fiber-optic WiFi :D As we are quite a large building this does take some time but we think if you ever find yourself back at The Village, you will be pleasantly surprised ;) Safe Travels!

Massive hostel with lots of guests and floors. Rooms are very spacious with comfy beds and duvets. Wifi is good but does drop out if your on one of the higher floors. Common areas needs way more couches and there's no kitchen here, and costs you to use a locker to store your luggage if you check out. Really close to the tube which is good. First room I stayed in had awesome powerpoints next to each bed but second only two for the whole room which was annoying. Overall good hostel..quite pricey.

In room A, desperately in need of a good clean and a lick of paint. Sky light flooded te room with daylight from 4am- needs a blind over it- everyone in top bunks had disturbed sleep due to amount of light being let in. Had an iPhone charger stolen on first morning- could have been an honest mistake, but still affected my stay.

Thanks so much for the review but we're sorry to hear certain aspects of your stay, this time around, might not have lived up to your expectations. As for the cleanliness of your room we are actually quite surprised to read your comments as we pay special attention to this room as it's one of our largest. In addition to this we have actually just repainted the walls and replaced the floor but this is something we might look into revisiting. Thanks again and all the best on your onward travels.
