Fantastic location, low price
It was a nice hostel. The hostel was a little older but it was fine. We stayed in a 14 person room and the room was pretty big but it did get stuffy at night with the windows closed. There was a bar downstairs which was nice, there you would get 25% off if you are a guest in the hostel. Food was good but not much a variety. For breakfast it was toast cheese ham and cereals. Overall I would stay here again.
Staff were very friendly and helped out whenever they could.. The hostel is in a great location for sightseeing, whether by public transport or on foot. The bar downstairs is great, packed out every night. Wifi doesn't reach most of the rooms though, so be prepared to camp out in the reception if you need it. Overall a great stay, would definitely reccommend it
Fix the wifi and you will be perfect
This is a big hostel so the atmosphere wasn't so great, but we met some very nice people anyway. The facilities are fine, it's no luxury but you get what you pay for. The only thing that was really unpleasant was the three old guys that stayed in our room, I don't have anything against old people staying at hostel but these three guys were something else. They kept hitting on the girls of our room even if they were old enough to be their grandfathers. Despite this incident we had a good stay and
The hostel is very comfortable, the only problem I had was with the internet conection the Wifi doesn't reach the room you have to stay close to the reception. Besides that everything was excellent, the breakfast is nice and the hostel is close to everything you want to see as a tourist.
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!
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.
Excellent location for exploring London, right near Borough markets. On top of a pub and restaurant so good atmosphere. Rooms where big and spacious, only one power point in our room of 10 though. Would recommended, good for solo travellers because of the bar below.
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.

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.
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.
Average hostel. It's a big comfortable place to stay, nothing more.
Solid hostel. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, easy to meet people. Was very frustrating though - took an hour to check - in because the system wasn't working. Then ended up having to check out since they had to switch my bed the next day, and then was given the same bed. Also there were 2 outlets for a room of 14 people which made keeping my phone charged difficult. Wifi could rarely be accessed in the room.
Aside from a mess from redoing the floors and a fight while we were there, our stay was pretty good. The beds were clean so usually the bathrooms too. The staff was friendly and helpful. Great location and attached bar.

Big hostel with three different buildings in a very central location. I stayed in the girls building. There was no kitchen. There is not much of a social atmosphere unless you go to the bar which is next to the hostel or join one of the bar crawls etc. So it does the job as a place to sleep in a central location, but not more than that. They want a credit card as a deposit wich I didn't know, so they made some fuss about that, because I didn't have one.
St Christopher is a great hostel, has good showers, comfortable beds, nice staff and a nice pub. The breakfast is good, but it takes a long time for the staff to replace the food.
I personally would not stay here again. They changed our room in the middle of our stay, and the only way we knew about it is we asked them a question about our current room-very unprofessional. If you plan on getting a good nights sleep, do not stay here. It's very loud, especially on weekends, so I barely slept. It's in a good location though, very close to the tube and walking distance to Tower of London.
