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).

Prime Backpackers Angel Policies & Conditions:

If we suspect that you are a Hen or Stag party when you arrive then we reserve the right to cancel your booking and not refund any monies paid.
Same goes for groups bigger than 8 that come in two (or more) separate reservations but actually are one group (we really don't want to do that).

    Really nice staff, familiar athmosphere. Bathrooms are always crowded and well used. At the end of the day bathrooms are not the cleanest anymore. But they are daily cleaned. A lot of showers. Nice staff and great rooms. You hear up to no trafic of the streets, but you hear rhe other people of the hostel. Slept well because everybody is kind.

    There is a massive kitchen, the place is pretty comfortable, the bathrooms and showers are fine. Staff was very friendly. However, I would never stay here again for the simple reason that the bed was rock hard. I'm someone who can usually sleep in uncomfortable places, but this was the least comfortable mattress I have ever (barely) slept on in my life. The pillow was not great either. Very unfortunate, I would have given a very good review if the mattress was better.

    they had a really big kitchen. but i think bathrooms could use a renovation. there were also not enough toilets. double bunk beds were very unsteady. it looked like there were a lot of people living there because they could not find a room to rent.

    Nice staff but not very clean. Facilities were dirty and smelled horrid at times. I also woke up with numerous bug bites. However, would stay again due to low price (you get what you pay for).

    We had a private 2 bedroom on the top floor. Room was a good size and clean. The staff was very nice. It’s an amazing location! However, we found the bathrooms very dirty. Sinks were dusty and grimy, the showers were grimy and usually full of hair. The toilets were also quite grimy. Tried to use the bathroom as little as possible. Other than the dirty bathrooms we really enjoyed the rest of our stay at the hostel!

    When I arrived my bed was not ready and was kept waiting. I was not shown around. The flooring in bathroom was badly peeling and dirty. I asked where I could store my bag and there was no where. Really not great, very amateurish check in.
