    My adult daughter and I stayed at Barmy Badgers Backpackers Hostel for a week. We loved it. The location was great. The staff people were very friendly and helpful. We had a private room for 2 right beside a bathroom. which was very convenient. There was a television in our room, which is unusual for a hostel. There was great Wi-Fi with lots of electrical outlets and USB ports available. The free breakfast was great, and we were welcome to use the kitchen for our own cooking.

    Perfect stay, better than hoped for. 5 minute walk to the train, 2 minutes to the bus, bike rental one street over. Selection of restaurants close by, in house laundry service and complimentary breakfast for a jump start. The team is very friendly, very laid back , creates a 'home-y' atmosphere. Liz is a star, Ken a jolly good soul and the supporting team friends you haven't met yet. I recommend, and will definitely stay again!

    A wonderful hostel, in a calm area of London. The place is simple and silent which I loved it. Curiously people on the hostel was more senior and no many young people, so ...I end up having more mature and interesting conversations. The staff was kind and helpful. The breakfast was a winner....and free. They have a nice lounge are with plenty of nice books.
