Property Description

Make new friends and join the Saint James family in our cozy Chelsea hostel. We are rated one of London's best hostels by the UK’s leading Telegraph newspaper and described by our guests as a “home away from home”. We like to consider ourselves one big family, where travelers meet and share free dinners, breakfasts, games, movies & stories.

Located in the center of London (Kensington/Chelsea), Saint James Backpackers allows you to stay in one of the safest and most affluent areas of the city. You’ll feel at home in this warm building, combining original Victorian architecture with modern facilities. Just a short walk to the tube station and connected to the main lines, our perfect location allows you to easily see what this great city has to offer.

Join us and enjoy free breakfast and free dinner every day! Breakfast includes eggs, fruit juices, tea and coffee, breakfast cereals and toasts with peanut butter and jam. Our dinner menu changes daily and always includes a vegetarian option.
You can also use our 24-hour kitchen to cook meals outside of breakfast or dinner hours and can help yourself to complementary tea and coffee 24/7.
