Hostelworld says

Safestay at Elephant and Castle is located in South London, just five minutes from Elephant and Castle tube station, putting it just a few stops from London Bridge, Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus. This stylish boutique-style hostel is very clean and features free breakfast and in-room luggage cages. Hostelworld guests have compared it favourably to a hotel. We like the privacy curtains on their beds, which create a sense of personal space even in a busy dorm.

Property Description

Safestay at Elephant & Castle is ideal if you are looking for budget accommodation in London, whether you are seeing the sights in this amazing city or travelling with your family. If Tate Modern, the National Theatre, The Imperial War Museum, the London Aquarium, the London Dungeon, a cricket match at the Kia Oval or clubbing at the world famous Ministry of Sound are on your must-do list, Safestay London Elephant & Castle is perfectly located.

Our beautiful 18th century Georgian building is centrally located, close to London’s mighty River Thames and the restaurants, bars and cafes the Southbank is famed for, along with the London Eye, Borough Market and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre.

    Superb

    Great hostel, location is very nice and close enough to all touristy places. Great vibe, good bar/restaurant. No towels unless you buy one though, but that’s the only issue I can see.

    Very Good

    First time ever staying in a hostel and overall, I’d say this was pretty decent. Note for travellers not familiar with London: the hostel is located in Elephant and Castle in Southbank. It’s about an hour walk from central London (i.e Westminster) so definitely take the tube. The hostel itself was really nice and the staff were all friendly and helpful. Other guests mostly seemed to be school parties so didn’t get to meet a lot of people, but still a good stay overall :)

    Good

    If you want to rest DO NOT stay in this hostel. People were outside singing and talking all night. Also, they had a huge camp there with a bunch of kids running around. I felt like I was in a daycare. The bathroom on the 2nd floor was disgusting. The location was ok, about 7 min walk from elephant and hostel. The staff was helpful and nice I can admit that!

    This is the loudest hostel you'll ever stay in. I had to use ear plugs at night because of road noise and constant talking from hostel guest. Great location. They also allowed huge groups of children to check into this hostel. I don't think this was a good idea have grown adults in close proximity to kids.

Things to Note

A valid photo ID such as passport, national identity cards, driver's licence, national military service card, etc. is required at check-in. Please note that student Cards are not accepted as valid ID.

Bookings cannot be accepted from any person under the age of 18yrs, unless they are accompanied by an adult (over 18) who is staying in the same dorm/room. Families with children aged 16yrs and under are welcome, however they must book and pay for all beds in order to make the room private (i.e. in the case of 4 bedded dorms or larger). Alternatively we have 2 Bedded and 3 Bedded Private rooms available, subject to availability.

Groups bookings are defined as groups of 10 people or more. Group Bookings should be made directly through the Groups Department, however, if you are making a group booking online, please ensure that you book the whole room(s) for sole use of your group. Where insufficient beds have been booked, i.e. 12 beds booked in a 14 bed Mixed Dorm), the booking will be amended by Safestay to ensure that all rooms/beds are for the groups sole use only. All additional charges will be confirmed to prior to arrival and must be settled before the group checks-in.
Before confirming your booking you should read through the group FAQ’s and understand the terms and conditions. Your contract is with Safestay and not the OTA (Online Travel Agent) if you choose to use their services.

Safestay has a maximum stay policy of 14 days. You are welcome to come back to Safestay, but with a minimum 1 months rest period. Or why don’t you take advantage and visit one of our other locations in London, York or Edinburgh.
