Property Description

Hootananny is a lively hostel with spacious rooms in a traditional Edwardian public house dating back to the early 1850s. We offer large, airy, comfortable rooms and have a great reputation for a warm atmosphere and helpful staff. We're located in the heart of Brixton with excellent transport links - a great location to stay and explore the city of London.

With just a ten-minute walk to Brixton underground station, you are straight into Central London on the tube in less than 15 minutes. As one of London’s most diverse and vibrant areas, Brixton has world famous covered and street markets, is a hub for music venues, is full of atmospheric pubs and has the pick of the world’s best cuisine with a great selection of restaurants. Hootananny is located right next to two bus stops with 24-hour connections to the city centre.

Hostellers are treated to a 20% discount on drinks at the award-winning bar downstairs that was recently crowned Best Live Music venue in London. Festival headliner Manu Chao chose Hootananny bar to give a secret show after his festival performance, and Hootananny star gigs include big gypsy bands, hip hop, dubstep, afrobeat, live reggae acts from Jamaica, ska, world music and indie rock. Fridays during winter also feature live comedy, and entrance is free before 10pm.

Important
- Please be aware that you must present photo I.D. when you arrive. We only accept passports or a driving license as valid I.D. This is a hostel for over 18s only, there are no family rooms and we do not cater for young children.
- The hostel is located above a live music venue, and music can be heard throughout the hostel until fairly late on Friday and Saturday nights. This does not prove to be a problem for many of our guests, but we can provide you with earplugs if you would like to ensure a good night's sleep.
- Reception is open from 9am - 12 midnight. Check-in time is after midday, but if you arrive early you can always relax in our lounge room or use the amenities.
- Check-out time is between 9am and 11am.
- We take a £10 deposit for the key. This is refunded at check-out when the key is returned.
- Online bookings for groups of more than 5 are not permitted.
- We are a backpackers hostel and do not check in local residents of London into our hostel.

    Overall, the best hostel in London for me. The Hoot is quite unique, the vibe is more like a big house and it has that communal and positive feel to it. The living room and kitchen are great and really spacious (such a rare thing amongst London hostels), security is excellent and it's above a lively pub and in the heart of Brixton/Herne Hill, with great rail and bus connections, food and nightlife all around and even a lovely park two minutes away. Great staff, interesting people. Recommended!

    Quite small and simple hostel and very hot in hot weather. No air conditioning. The atmosphere could have been better. Lot of noise from downstairs. Someone stole my food from the fridge which was not nice.
