Hostelworld says

Palmers Lodge - Hillspring at Willesden Green is continually praised by Hostelworld visitors for its bright and cheery, 'spotless and hygienic' cleanliness, featuring 'comfy, robust, wooden' bunk beds with privacy curtains. Our reviewers appreciate the 'very friendly and helpful' staff who are 'a good laugh'; one Hostelworld guest said the hostel 'felt more like a family and social hotel' than an average hostel. We like that both the doors and the lockers are secured by keycard. The location is good, too - the hostel has parking spaces and is five minutes from the Jubilee metro line, while a 24hr bus stops outside.

At Palmers Lodge, we've got a lovely quiet spot in the north of the city, friendly staff and great amenities. Tuck into a free continental breakfast every morning, saving your cash for splashing on London's sights. There’s free Wi-Fi in all the rooms, and a 24-hour reception, in case you want tips, a chat or to check in at any time of day or night.


In peaceful Willesden Green, you get the best of both worlds: a quiet place to catch some sleep while still being close to all of the London's must-see sights. Our hostel is five minutes' walk from Willesden Green underground station for the Jubilee line – it's around 20 minutes to the bustling shops of Oxford Street and 25 minutes to the iconic London Eye. Bringing your own ride? We have parking spaces, too.

Rooms and Dorms

You'll get a handy key card that lets you into the hostel, your room, and your own storage locker and safe. Our comfy beds have privacy curtains, so don't worry about your screen glare waking others if you’re watching late-night movies. Arriving after bedtime? Our beds are pre-made with free linen so you can jump straight in for some shut-eye. Choose between a private room with an en-suite – great for couples – mixed, or female-only dorms.

Extras and activities

Challenge other explorers to a round of table tennis or a board game at the on-site Bikeshed Bar. Who knows, you might find someone to match your Monopoly addiction! If you’re craving some down-time, our cosy lounge is waiting: curl up with a book and a cup of tea from the vending machine. On a sunny day (they exist in London, honest!), our terrace is the place to be. Sometimes we host live events here, so it’s worth checking with us at reception.

    I stayed in many hostels, specially in Europe but this one is one of the best. I stayed in a four beds room and I slept like a baby. Room, toilets, living room were all clean. I'll be back there next time I go to London.

    I had an incredible stay! The staff were really friendly and welcoming, the atmosphere of the place was really nice, and my room was great too. I stayed in a 22- bed dorm, which was a little intimidating at first, but it was actually really nice and spacious-- I didn't feel like I was tripping over anyone or overcrowded for the number of people in the room. The bar and kitchen were a great place to hang out and meet people. I am very happy with my stay.

    Only stayed one night but would have stayed for a week. My first hostel experience and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Staff were super helpful and they even let me receive my rail pass there. Lifesaver! The bathrooms were very clean and private. My room was in the basement and the privacy curtain was great. Never felt out of place or nervous. Location is a little out but I loved walking around to get there. Would stay again for sure.

    A very good hostel for the price. Easy access to bus routes into London and the metro isn't far off either. It's about a 30-minute trip, but that's not too much of a problem if you plan on spending full days in the city. Make sure to bring a lock if you want to keep your valuables secure, they are not provided (neither are towels). The breakfast is nothing groundbreaking but you'll get full (and, honestly, I've had muuuuch worse). Finally, staff were helpful and patient. Great option for London.

    Far enough out of the centre to avoid the party crowd but with easy access to the sights by Underground or bus. Pity the breakfast has gone from Full English to Continental since I was last there. Reinstate it, happy with the extra cost of it. Comfy, bar on site, what else do you need.

    It's a bit far from the city centre. Other than that it's good place to stay.

    I'll start with the positive. I stayed in the 22 mixed dorm room. People in the room were being thoughtful of the others around and didn't make much noise. The toilets were really clean as well. They were being cleaned about 3 times a day. Now the negative is the security. There's zero security around. Someone stole my coat and the hostel did nothing about it. It was stolen the day that I was supposed to go to another room so I suspect the cleaners because they cleaned my bed that day.

    A pretty good Hostel located in the beautiful and quiet Willesden area. Quick (30-ish mins) train to the city centre which is easy as. Room was ok but not sure if I'd spend $40AU for a 20 person dorm again, although i really liked the bunks with a blind and lockers underneath all beds. Shower and toilet facilities are okay (as good as communal showers get) but I thought they were always cleaning in the busy times like morning and night when people wanted to use the showers, but overall lovely.

    I would not recommend staying here. My expectations going in: Clean bathrooms, decent security, good breakfast. Security was good, though I’d appreciate standing lockers in room. Bag didn’t fit in drawer. “good breakfast” was toast, a croissant, corn flakes (carbs carbs carbs) and an apple. PROTEIN PLEASE! Even just a hard boiled egg. 2 ladies toilets for all of first floor. Everyone uses these of course and they had major trouble flushing. Shower heat and pressure good but far.

Palmers Lodge - Hillspring at Willesden Green says

I think what makes our hostel really special is our atmosphere. We're in a modern building full of collectors' objects and quirky boutique interiors, with custom-made bunk beds that have curtains and nightlights for extra privacy in our large dorms. Our guests seem to appreciate that they have the option to both relax after a long day or to join the crowd and socialise if they want to.
We're quite close to Kensal Green where you'll find the famous All Souls Cemetery. The Neasden Temple is also nearby; this architectural gem is the first and largest traditional Hindu Temple in the world outside of India and a must-see attraction open to all visitors. Around the corner in Kilburn, I recommend visiting The Tricycle Theatre. It's the perfect cultural fix, comprising a challenging and innovative theatre programme, a cinema and an art gallery, as well as a café and a bar, and was voted 'London's most beautiful cinema' by Vogue magazine.
