Hostel 639

London, England
40%

Worst hostel I've stayed in in London. They don't take card payments at reception which means you have to visit the only cash machine in the area, which charges you to do so. The part of town is remote and ugly. The only shower was in the dorm (I don't mean en suite, I mean in the corner of the room). Other guests would come in to the room at 2am, turn on the lights, chat loudly. The bedding was a thin blanket in a duvet cover, the pillow, who knows? Wifi is expensive and only in the cafe. Awful

The Monkeys in the Trees

I stayed during the week and it was very very quiet. In a 9 bed dorm I was the only person sleeping one of the nights, the beautiful pub downstairs was just as quiet, like my own private lounge, only with beer on tap. I had some of the best sleep I've had in a hostel as a result. Showers for men were all pretty ropey and the actual common room was small and not very comfortable. But overall I really liked it. Weekends likely to be very different to my experience. Not that close to central

St Christopher's Village

London, England
74%

This has tended to be my default hostel in London, although my expereinces haven't always been great, overall given the value and conveneince, it's amongst the best. Having a cage under the bed should be standard but you do appreciate being able to leave your belongings without being charged. Also lockers for the extra safe. Showers generally ok, no kitchen but a microwave in the chill out room. A pretty safe choice, hassle free and in a great part of town

Hey we're glad you enjoyed your stay and would love to have you back anytime! We pride ourselves on on being able to offer inexpensive accommodation, comfortable beds, and a central location. We're glad you took full advantage of all of these ;) We're sorry though if you found your bed to be without a storage cage underneath it, I can assure as of now every bed indeed does have a cage. Thanks again and all the best on your onward travels!

New Mansion House

London, England

It's really one of the nicest parts of London, right near Kensington gardens in what was obviously once a hotel. They provide you breakfast and dinner, although I'd leave too early in the morning to take advantage. The room was good with storage for clothes and a basin, not too many beds, showers ok. Check out was before 8 and reception wasn't open so I had to wake the night porter who was a deep sleeper. Overall, I liked the place. Not a place to party, just a comfortable, quiet rest in central

I chose because it was cheap and available at short notice, despite it being a Friday. One one the noisiest nights I've had in a hostel, with far too may crammed in to a small room and people checking in and out a very late hours. Squeaking beds, although the curtain and socket for your bunk does give a bit of privacy. Breakfast provided and was fine, cereal, toast. Didn't stay long enough to get a full impression although I can't say I'd book again

Hootananny Hostel

London, England
69%

There's nowhere in London quite like the Hootananny. It's above a Reggae venue and the Mary Jane tones from downstairs drift up to the hostel. Not for families. I had a good time there and the guests were the friendliest I've found anywhere. During the week most of the guests were up early for work so weren't partying till late. Unfortunately, I didn't get to experience a weekend there. Recommended


Phoenix Hostel

Staff very welcoming and chatty, there's a good atmosphere generally. The room was ok, I've had worse sleeps. There's not much going on in the immediate vicinity, although it's just up the road from Paddington, and if you fancy exploring nearby, Little Venice is recommended. I'd probably go back
