Property Description

The hostel is housed in a historic building in beautiful Angel (borough of Islington).

Our goal is to create a space for travellers to explore the exciting fast paced life of London, and, at the same time, have a safe environment to relax and recharge, meet likeminded people and share unique experiences.

We are just moments from the bars, restaurants and nightlife of Upper Street and Shoreditch, and 150 metres (5 minute walk) from Angel tube station which gets you to all of the best parts of London in minutes.
Angel is a vibrant part of London. On the edge of the City centre, and yet still a traditional local community.
Islington has been the home to reformists for centuries, so behind that elegant facade lies the beating heart of change. Islington is home to many local attractions that will let you see a different side of London than the normal tourist haunts.

You can enjoy free unlimited high speed WiFi in all areas, a massive fully equipped kitchen for you to cook (we know how expensive London is to eat out), and a chill-out lounge to while away the hours and make new friends.

We don’t have a bar on site, so you can either sample the many local pubs or bring your own drinks back. We host lots of fun events, movie nights, games evenings and delicious dinners which all can enjoy - to name a few.

There’s free tea and coffee all day, a free computer, TV, board games, book exchange, hairdryers, towels, travel advice, and more for you to enjoy.
Feel safe at Prime Angel with 24 hour security and CCTV. We have lockers (bring your own padlock) and luggage storage on the day of arrival and departure.

Also, please note that since the building is almost 200 years old there is no elevator (free work out).

    Really friendly staff. Great location that’s not too touristy but still very central. Room was a pleasant surprise with plenty of space, a nice window, and it was spotless. Would definitely stay here again.

    Great stay here. I slept so well, like they have real mattresses! I was seriously so comfortable. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. I also liked the ambiance a lot, like the crowd is good and there is a lot of space to work and chill and eat. Location is perfect especially if you’re going to Kings Cross. Maybe storage of goods could enhanced. They have bins but you have to bring your own lock and only enough for half the room. But overall great stay and would absolutely come back!

    This hostel is great when it comes to amenities. Large kitchen with everything you need. Lots of space for hanging about, getting work done, etc. I found their pillows to be quite large and stiff so not the most comfortable but I was only here one night. They foster a VERY social atmosphere, which is nice for meeting people, but at the same time the hostel hosted party (drinks, food, loud music) happening in the kitchen area that lasted just about to midnight on a Thurs. Not the most convenient.

    Good for a place to rest after a long day of traveling and being a tourist in the city. I stayed in an all female dorm and found that there was only one luggage cage underneath the bunk bed, so I had to leave my things locked in my luggage and left it for the other person sharing the bunk bed to use.

    It was amazing, the only problem we had was the literally boiling hot water in the showers. Other than that no problems what so ever, i would recommend the hostel.

    Very Good

    Excellent location, the neighborhood is quiet and safe. Also, close to a Tube station, and great choices with good prices to dine out, as it is not a touristic area. Kind staff and easy check-in process. The kitchen and areas to hang out are spacy. The only drawback are the actual dorm facilities. Not enough toilets and/or showers for all guests, not enough lockers in the rooms; the cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired. However, it's a good value for the money and I would stay there again.

    Very Good

    22 Apr 2022
    You could notice that it was an old building and needed some refurbishment. There where not enough safe cages in the rooms for all the beds and the door would play a sounds everytime someone was getting in or out, what was extremely annoying during night. Friendly staff, located close to the tube but not Küchen to see within a walking distance. Will try a different hostel next time I'm in London.

    The location was great, very close to a tube station, and the sleeping arrangements were just fine, but the bathroom situation was unexpected. There was only one toilet available for all the people staying and the bathroom was shared amongst everyone. The bathroom was not very clean and the fact that there was literally one toilet for 20 + people made things very difficult in my opinion.

    It was ok but getting ready for a wedding on the top 3rd bunk was not advisable! I felt like I was going to fall down every time goin up and down! Two nights was enough! I imagine it's great for young travelers ...
