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 the 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.

    Wonderful hostel with an awesome atmosphere and just as awesome staff. Breakfast and dinner provided daily was a godsend, while the facilities and rooms themselves were pretty good for a hostel standard, better than you'd find in most other places. Location was a bit far from main attractions but there's a tube stop and a bunch of shops just up the street. Would absolutely recommend and will definitely stay there again if I ever head back to London!

    Very Good

    We ended up at this hostel after staying in a different one the night previous and hated that one! We found this one and throughly enjoyed our stay there. Yes- Lots of stairs but thats very typical in a british home! The rooms were secure and they provided lockers under the bed for your things. Location was nice- about a 5 min walk or so to the tube station.
