    Lovely as always, additions ... great receptionist staff, fresh flowers and herbs growing in the dinning area. And the best bonus super volunteer host Connie, so welcoming and accommodating, helping you in the kitchen , advising on equipment and making breakfast the best time of the day. I’m so sad to be leaving.

    Good location by Hendon Central )Northern Line) kitchen and lounge facilities comfy and well equipped - dorm room a bit cramped but had a locker and bed had curtains, a light and plenty of plug sockets. No early check in allowed but did let you wait in the lounge until room was ready. Staff where nice and helpful, breakfast was basic but not complaining at all for the price! Lock on a toilet cubicle didn't work and not enough sinks for the amount of people there, but this isn't a big issue

    All okay but when we came at the end of the day to grab our bags out of the store room, we waited 20 mins whilst the lady talked to the people in front before expressing that we needed to get them now or we’d miss our train, saying we were sorry to interrupt but he had to go ASAP. To which we received a big sigh and eye roll, no words, and she stomped round unlocked the door and walked back. Then once we’d grabbed our bags and went to leave I shouted thank you very much & was totally ignored

    I booked 4 nights at London Backpackers but I stayed only 2 nights because I just couldn't take the smell in the room. It was disgusting. Overall it's a nice place, good location the bathrooms are clean.

    Felt secure, nice staff and basic breakfast is provided for free which is nice. Came back the night before I left to find the code to my room had been changed. No one thought to text or call me and reception had closed. Turns out it was due to someone in my room being kicked out. I’d left my room key in my room and that in addition to my towel was stolen. Not a great loss but being locked out of my room, having my towel stolen and having to pay £5 for the card key wasn’t a great experience.

    Other guests talking loudly outside our room, well past 11pm and because the walls were so thin we could hear everything going on, even the hand dryer going off. Other guests did not keep quiet even when politely asked, some even tried to force their way into our room one night. Because of this we got little sleep and didn’t feel safe, especially as there was no staff after 10pm. Staff weren’t very apologetic and the atmosphere wasn’t welcoming. We left a night early.

    The first second I walked into the dorm someone banging in the back telling me to put my earphones down fair enough there was no need to actually physically touch me you're a complete stranger on a Roomba 12 strange men do not put your physical Hands On Me is other ways of communicating. I deserve the same bed and same room for the next night I come back in the late afternoon and someone has taken over my bed removed all my belongings I don't know what happened to them with all missing
