    Loved my stay here, really good atmosphere and felt comfy. Good location and friendly staff. Only issues were you couldn’t sit upright in the bed space and the shower in the room was tiny, although it worked well. Overall would recommend.

    Awesome hostel located very close to tube station and supermarkets. Great team of staff members working, and comfy beds in the dorms. Only problem was the heat of the room - we stayed on the top floor so the room was so hot and there wasn’t much we could do about it. Free breakfast was great and the kitchen was one of the best I’ve seen so far. I would definitely stay here again!

    Good sized safe with 8 digit code, nice kitchen, small enough dorms with en suite which are convenient. Large lockers but bring your own safe. Free wifi, helpful staff and really convenient location.

    From the get-go, the staff was super friendly and helpful with making my partner and I feel accommodated and giving us directions around the city. The location is excellent and the atmosphere is really cozy. Providing free breakfast is an added plus and I loved the fact that they make a conscious effort to recycle the waste produced. If you’re looking for a place to stay in London, look no further- it was perfect!

    Everyone at Barmy Badger makes you feel at home, they are so kind, helpful and the atmosphere is amazing. The facilities are like an old English house, which means, a lot of stairs, pretty warm in the summer. But for the area, and the kindness, it's worth it. It's also pretty clean!

    From the moment we walked in, we felt really welcome. The facilities were clean and the location couldn’t have been better. It was so close to public transport and really easy to get around. The staff were accommodating and kind, helping us out when we ran into trouble. Sometimes the room got a bit stuffy, but overall it was a really great experience. I would definitely stay here again !!

    I had a great time there. I was in a mixed room, and felt a bit uncomfortable as I was the only girl in the room with really old men. (45-50 years old men). The facilities are great. Big kitchen, you can definitely cook there. The hostel was really clean, had no complain about that. There is not much atmosphere however. It’s a pretty calm hostel. Finally, the location is amazing. The neighborhood is beautiful. Really close to a metro station. There is a grocery store literally 30 seconds from the hostel. Wo
