Wifi was terrible! The showers were sometimes hot, sometimes cold. If you want to see all the main attractions, be prepared to plan additional transportation!

We're sorry to read that the hostel might not have lived up to your expectations. As for the shower temperature, at times, it can fluctuate when we have a large number of guests using it, such as in the mornings. However this is a issue that is easily resolved if you just let our 24 hour reception desk know ;) As for our location we are only steps away from such landmaks as The Tate & Shakespeare's Globe just to name a few, we're sorry if you didn't a chance to take advantage of this.


I had a really great stay here in London at Saint Christophers Village! The staff were amazing and were helpful whenver we needed anything, including multiple pages printed! I wasn't impressed with the breakfast at all. It consisted of instant coffee and toast, so if that satisfies you than you will be fine but i think that for the amount of money that they charge it could be a little better.

Thanks so much for the review, we would love to see you again! As well thank you for the kind words about the staff, we will make sure they are passed on ;) As for the breakfast we offer a wide variety of items such as toast, ham, cheese, cereal, coffee, tea, yogurt and fruit just to name a few. We're sorry if your didn't get a chance to take full advantage of this. And if instant coffee doesn't tickle your fancy we provide a wide selection of filter coffees in our bar next door ;) Thanks again!


I've only stayed two night in a 22 beds dorm, but i really enjoyed my stay. The staff is great, kind and always ready to help. WiFi doesn't work in dorm, but I didn't need it...Breakfast is ok.

Hey thanks so much for the review, we would love to have you back anytime :) Also thanks so much for the kind words about the staff, we will make sure and pass them on! We are also currently undergoing renovations and one thing that is being done at the moment is updating our wi-fi so if you ever find yourself back at The Village, we think you will be pleasantly surprised ;) Take care and all the best on your onward travels!


Pretty average hostel experience. A decent stay but not as nice as other st Christopher's. Location isn't horrible but not very close to the major sites. It's in a good location for accessing londons best night clubs, however. Atmosphere in the hostel is a little bit overrated, but it still isn't too bad. london's hostels aren't the best, so I'd recommend a stay here, but it won't be one of the better ones you'll have stayed at.

Thanks for the review but we're sorry the read the hostel might not have lived up to your expectations. As our hostel is located just down the street from London bridge we only moments away from such attractions such as Tower Bridge, Tower of London, The Shard, The Tate & Shakespeare's Globe just to name a few. We are also located between 2 underground stations so you have all of London just at your door step, we're sorry if you didn't get a chance to enjoy this.Take care and all the best.


You can meet other travellers at the bar and join activities provided by the hostel – pub crawl(superb experience), walking tour. You won’t be bored if you do not want to.
