    This is my second time back at this hostel. It has a very friendly atmosphere. It is clean and there is space to relax in the lounge and kitchen. It’s very clean and a good hostel to get a great sleep. The staff are very friendly (and the dogs).I also really appreciate that this hostel recycles.

    This hostel was amazing. It's literally smashed within a London townhouse which means its small and cozy which means you can have some actual privacy sometimes which was great. In addition the area is great with the main street always busy so you're never worried about any sort of crimes because there's other people around, but the side street its on is very quiet so there's no problem with noise when you're trying to sleep.

    A cozy place with friendly, open staff and good wifi. There may be more stair-climbing than you're used to if you are on an upper floor, but even so, this place felt like a large home and is well worth the cost.

    Absolutely lovely and friendly hostel! I stayed in the female dorm just for a few nights and was perfectly happy with my stay. The hostel is very close to a station with connections on the main London lines making it really easy to get around. Staff were friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable and I never had to worry about accessing an outlet to charge anything. Shower was a bit small but the bathroom was very clean. No AC so it did get a bit warm but that's to be expected!

    A pleasant stay at the Barmey Badger friendly and helpful staff also I liked that we had a lamp, charging points for electrical devices near the bed which is great. The only issue I noticed was that the toilet near my room was blocked there was lots of poo in the toilet but that was probably done by one of the people staying there not really the hostels fault.

    Great location and an extremely friendly, accommodating staff! Very clean and secure. Not a super busy/party hostel, but the other guests were very friendly and interesting to get to know. Would absolutely recommend!

    A really nice place in a super convenient location. The staff was friendly and the room was clean with great storage and individual plugs for all of the beds. The hostel is very quiet and it seems like many of the people staying there are long-term tenants working in the city. So, it's not the easiest place to meet and mingle with other travellers but superb for a good night's sleep.

    Outstanding location and super nice staff make this hostel a great one. I've seen plenty of cleaner hostels but that is hardly a dealbreaker given the very good price. A cheap stay near a tube station and in the heart of London - an absolutely fantastic deal to get to experience a fantastic city!

    We stayed in a double room located next to the bathroom so it was okay. For other users the bathroom may be far from their rooms and you may have to wait a while for it because there is clearly not enough of them if all beds are occupied.
