Property Description

The hostel 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 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, travel advice, towels, 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).

    Forever my home away from home, my place in London. Perfect hostel to stay either for a weekend or for longer. Best fully equipped kitchen in town, amazing and friendly staff that became my friends and family. The delicious coffee in the morning and pancakes on Sundays are the cherry on top of the cake! I’ll miss the family dinners and good vibes in the common areas. Thanks Prime Family (:

    I have stayed in 4 hostels in London in total and Prime backpackers Angel is without a doubt the friendliest and the most homely. I wrote to management to extend my stay for an extra week I liked it so much. It just feels like you are at home. It feels safe and warm and comfortable at all times.

    Angel backpackers is not like you’re average hostel. The staff was extremely nice and it really felt like everyone at the hostel was your friend/family. In the rooms it was a bit messy as there wasn’t lockers to put your things. Although I didn’t feel like I had to lock my things up as everyone was so nice. The staff really went the extra mile, when I was looking for an adaptor for my hair straightener the receptionist leant me her straightener instead! The kitchen was clean!

    I was only here for a single night and didn't really use the place to its fullest. However, it provided what I needed: a clean bed, a hot shower, and somewhere . There are lockers by the beds but you have to purchase your own padlock (make sure it isn't too small). The large window to my room was open all night (the weather was especially hot), which unnerved me, but I think this opened onto their own outside area. Still, I would stay here again.

    I only enjoyed my stay here because of the location, relaxed environment, and excellent staff. Other than the hangout areas, I found the room and bathrooms to be really disappointing. My room didn't have any substantial storage, no privacy curtains, and some of the showers didn't have anywhere to put clothes. The room was pretty warm or noisy, as well. My check-in took almost an hour due to the staff member having to individually walk everyone around the hostel. It's not really necessary.

    Backpackers Angel has a small hostel feel. It seems like the staff really like to interact with other staff more than the guests. The atmosphere was nice but there was ongoing construction inside of the hostel for the entirety of my stay. Usually people will let you know or at least offer a discount if people are going to start drilling around your head at 8AM. Bathrooms are tucked in between floors and the showers are on the fourth floor. It's definitely not handicap accessible.

    Overall in my 2 night stay I didn’t sleep more than a couple of hours due to the windows being wide open on street level to passing traffic on a busy road as the rooms had no source to cool them down, making them really hot. The windows being open to the street also was a slight security concern. The reception staff weren’t super helpful and accommodating when asking about potential early check in and had very little to say during check out. The location and facilities were both really positive.
