    Staff were awesome! Super friendly, and they were willing to work with me when my plans changed abruptly due to covid restrictions. Location is a bit far from downtown London, but there's an underground station right across the street for easy access, and places like Leicester Square and Camden Town are just down the line. Great place, would definitely stay here again.

    The bedroom is extremely small and the three-bed bunks are not attached to the wall, so you cannot really sleep. Localization, toilets, staff, atmosphere are good, but I'd recommend choosing a room with two beds bunk or a private one.

    I’m unable to rate the London Backpackers hostel on this occasion as they refused my booking as it had been made within 60days of a previous booking and was contrary to their rules. They also refused to refund my deposit. Take care with booking as this rule applies to all third party bookings. Otherwise it’s a great place to stay and I recommend it.

    My room mates woke me me up at 5h30 to pray on their mat. Bathrooms were left in a disaster. My beats earphones were stolen. I feel like I ended up in the wrong end of town. London is culturally cliquish. Be sure to be in the right area.

    Definitely not what I expected. The pictures can be a bit misleading. I think the biggest issue is that it just got a bit out of hand. It claims to be a hostel with an age limit but it was not. It is located at least an hour by the Underground from the main airport. Also quite a bit of a way from everywhere else. Everything was cleanish. You can tell that they are trying to make an effort but some people have made it their home rather than in and out. I had to leave because I was uncomfortable.
