You now have to pay the first night on your credit card which caused some issues regarding payment which the staff were really nice about correcting. I have had problems here previously; it has to be said that the staff have really improved in their manner and professionalism. The hostel has an excellent bar and nice rooms (4 share ensuite). It is a big hostel though, so if you want to meet people you will need to go to the bar and say "hi".

A new hostel on the site of an old one. The facilities have been completely renovated and it is new and shiny. The rooms are nice and the hostel has a kitchen which is a nice treat. It did not really have a social vibe to it as a hostel though. Guests kept to themselves. Staff were helpful and the location is excellent.

A very well located hostel with really nice staff. We arrived at 7am on a sleeper train and they let us have a drink etc before storing our luggage. The hostel is near the famous clock and the rooms are spacious. The guests in our room were friendly, but other guests seemed a bit unsociable. A recommended hostel especially if you are with friends.

An excellent hostel with friendly staff and a very welcoming atmosphere amongst the other backpackers. This is a party hostel, but even if you don't do the pub crawl you will have fun and meet great people here. The rooms are nice, the hostel has nice noise restrictions for quieter quests too AND FREE DINNER!!! My only critique is that they could do with another bathroom or two.

A reasonable hostel with good bar deals for guests. Be warned this hostel is above a bar, and it does not have a common room, so is not one for meeting travellers. As a place to stay with a friend it is quiet decent, apart form the annoying Irish music at breakfast.

This is a fun hostel, there are lots of cool people, drinking and the staff are nice. The kitchen is acceptable, the common areas are a nice size, not too big or small. The constant music outside did wear on me a bit though. I recommend this hostel for travellers who want to meet people and have fun. Th rooms are nice and quiet.

More of a hotel with dorms than a hostel. There is no real hostel vibe. The kitchen is lacking plates. The guy on reception (Diego i think) is really cool and friendly. This place is right by the beach, so fo that it is great, but you wont meet people much here.

A delight to stay here after the one in Philly. Jude was really cool, and when AJ turned up it got even better. The rooms are good and the people hang out and making friends is easy. It could do with an extra bathroom on floor 2, but otherwise ths place was great. It is 10 minutes walk from Union station and a great place to explore DC and have a good time. Thanks for a great time.

A fantastic hostel. One of the best i have ever been to. The staff are very friendly, i hung out with them and other backpackers. The pub crawl was a blast, the place is VERY clean, great common area. I would highly recommend this hostel. There is a sister hostel in Washington DC too if the readers need one. Seriously a great place, thank you for being like a home in Philly to this traveller.

No atmosphere. The walls in the rooms do not reach the ceiling so if your neighbour turns on a light, snores or talks late at night you get woken up. The dorms are noisy due to this as every time somebody goes down the corridor you can hear it.

A nice little hostel in the middle of the Reaperbahn. The area isn't as dodgy as it claims, this hostel is on the main road and is well located. There isn't much of a backpacker atmosphere, but if you are with friends it will serve nicely. Breakfast is VERY expensive though.

View Property Reply

Many thanks. We are glad to hear that. Actually our breakfast is not that expensive. The breakfast includes different coffee specialties, tea, water and juice, fruits, bread, toast, cereals, eggs as well as assorted sliced cold meats and cheeses as much as you like. But we would like to invite you to a breakfast next time you stay with us. Greetings from the Reeperbahn.

I was charged to my credit card for the first night as we were late, despite having emailed ahead to say I would be late due to flight delays. This was inconvenient and incurred me charges on my card for overseas transactions, and was despite a member of staff emailing me earlier that day to confirm that they had read my email and knew I was definitely coming. This kind of sloppy service by the staff shows a lack of communication and professionalism. I won't be coming back to this hostel.

Hi, Thanks for your review and I'm sorry that you weren't satisfied with the service. It is our policy to charge guests for their first nights stay when they are due to arrive after 4pm, and this policy of ours is clearly stated on Hostelworld.com. Sorry that you incurred credit-card charges because of this, but I would not say that it indicates "sloppy Service". I hope that other than this your stay was pleasant, and wish you safe travels in the future. Nick EYH Team

An average hostel, the bar downstairs means you need ear plugs on the first floor and the lack of a kitchen hurts the atmosphere a bit if you don't fancy the bar. Otherwise good enough.

View Property Reply

Hi! Firstly Thank You for taking the time to leave us a review, we appreciate all feedback as it can only help us to improve! We apologize you found the bar area too loud, unfortunately as we are a party hostel it can be noisy, the earplugs are free however from our 24 hour reception area, once again though our apologies if this affected your stay. Unfortunately we do not have a kitchen, we do offer microwave and tea and coffee facilities in our Chill Out Room. In the bar and our neighbouring pub - St. Christopher's Inn you are also entitled to 25% off all food during your stay. Thank You again, we do hope to see you again next time in London! The St. Christopher's Team.

Worst kitchen ever! 2 pans, 0 plates and the microwave doesn't work. The room was good and the staff friendly, but if you want to cook for yourself its near enough impossible

Directions given via booking email were TERRIBLE! No interaction with people, and the kitchen was missing some major basics! Then although i have been refunded, i was charged for not turning up, ORGANISATION!! Its a university, not exactly inspiring stuff.
