    London backpackers is a one of the cheapest hostels in London, though the quality doesn’t suffer. The neighborhood, Hendon, is quaint and everything you could need is just a quick walk away. The beds are a bit cramped, but fairly comfortable and the outlets were a nice touch. The best part of this hostel is definitely the staff. The man at the front desk checking people in was so helpful and kind, and the energetic young woman at breakfast brightened my entire day.

    Very Good

    It felt like everyone there was living (well at least in my room) there and there was no real atmosphere but it’s super close to the tube station which makes it easy to get around. Lots of street noise and very hot at night. I also didn’t love that the bathroom was on a different floor but that minor. It was cheap and in a convenient location.

    Definitely on the outskirts, but close to a nice, cheap pub. Good value for the money, but we didn't like how far the bathrooms were from our room and how the showers didn't stay on. There was a nice chill space with a TV and lockers under the beds. Breakfast was okay, but can't complain. Thanks for a cozy getaway!

    Covid 19 stay: I was disappointed with this hostel. The manager checked me in and didn't seem to want me there, wasn't welcoming at all. Other staff are nice to talk to but not good hosts. When I raised any issue the response was 'that's the way things are', there was no effort to try and accommodate my requests like other hostels. The rooms and bathrooms were 'cleaned' daily but dirt was swept under my bed. However, it was great having a well stocked kitchen and it is very close to a supermarket.
