Property Description

Find our Camden hostel in London’s north, smack bang in the middle of one of the city’s coolest neighbourhoods. Camden is covered with some of the world’s best street art plus its live music scene is iconic. Just a short walk from St Christopher’s is the famous Camden Market serving up some of the best street food in London as well as vintage clothes, antiques and loads more. Once you’re done exploring the local attractions, head to Belushi’s where you’ll meet other travellers while rockin’ out to live bands or taking part in a daily pub crawl!

Some of London’s most famous live music venues are just a couple of minutes walk from our hostel. We also have Regents Park and Primrose Hill just a stone’s throw away so you can benefit from seeing two different sides of the city within a few minutes.

*Please note that we require an in date government approved - drivers license, passport or national ID card at check-in.

**Guests under the age of 18 must stay in a private room with guardians. They cannot share in general dormitory rooms with people who are not part of their own group or family. Under-18s are not allowed in the bars or pubs. View House Rules


Located above a bar in the heart of buzzing Camden Town, St Christopher’s Camden offers a fun-packed experience for fans of loud music, alcohol and all things gloriously vintage. You can search for local gigs and events with our free Wi-Fi, or sink into a soft leather sofa in the common room to catch a few winks before joining our nightly pub crawl. Afterwards, sleep soundly in one of our cosy dorm rooms with fresh linen and key-card access. Reception is open 24 hours a day – so feel free to ask our helpful staff anything at all!


We're a 10-minute walk from Camden Lock market – lose yourself among stalls filled with art, food and retro clothing – or take a selfie next to Amy Winehouse's statue on route to nearby pubs and music venues. Venture further to Regents Park or Primrose Hill, before jumping on the underground to tick off must-see sights like Big Ben and Buckingham Palace. It'll take around an hour and 20 minutes to reach us from Heathrow Airport by rail, and about the same time from Gatwick Airport. Kings Cross St Pancras train station is a direct train ride away via the Northern Line.

Rooms and Dorms

Our rooms have fresh bedding and hardwood floors. The female-only or mixed dorms come with en-suite bathrooms, or you can book yourself into a private twin, also with its own bathroom. All the rooms come with under-bed lockers, which are big enough to store a 70-litre backpack.

Extras and activities

Perch on a leather stool next to reception and catch up on some emails while watching the action out on the high street. Alternatively, grab a snack at the vending machine in the common room and see if there's a film showing on the big screen. Later on, we recommend heading to lively Belushi’s Bar for a game of beer pong or to catch a live DJ set.

    Great location and nice atmosphere. People working in the hostel are very helpful. Steve, the night porter is totally lovely. Building itself is not perfect, but it's an old London building, real London experience.

    Liked it! Good location, REALLY comfy beds each with a light, plug socket and curtains, good price, good pub! Watch out when you check-in as Hostelword cheekily added a breakfast to my price - which I didn't ask for - £4 per day! I challenged it at the reception and she took it off the total. It's a party hostel, so if you want an calm, restful sleep don't stay here, but if you're in London to party it's ideal. Toilets weren't that clean and there should be WAY more of them! Would stay again.

    Over the week I stayed in 3 different beds, and NONE of the usb sockets worked in any of them. I'm currently in the shepherds bush st christophers now and they all work fine so it wasn't my cable or phone at fault. Given how much travellers depend on usb charging that was pretty bad, and I was lucky I had a power bank. Other than that you guys were as great as all the other st christophers :)

    Great location, pub has good deals, dorms comfy. The shower however (at least in room 3) really needs to be sorted. The partially blocked drain is slow and the floor is disgusting. It feels like some all aboard express checkout priority lane vip experience for the whole book of foot infections to climb aboard and start terraforming my toes into some blistery yellow paradise where little Tinea Pedis Jr. can bloom into whatever he wants to be, so long as he is willing to work hard.

    Staff were all very nice and helpful but the cleanliness of the room was definitely disappointing. The room smelled like my brother's old hockey bag, the floor was really dirty, there was hair on the sheets ...and I saw a roach scurry across the floor in the morning. I also didn't know that it would be a triple bunk, I probably didn't read the description properly, but it was a surprise nonetheless. Bottom bunk of 3 is not very comfortable at all. The location is great. Just needs a deep clean!!

    The hostel had decent facilities, a room downstairs to chill in, two showers and two toilets and two sinks. Wasnt very clean at all, bin was full and showers were quite small had hair in.Bed was okay. Just way too loud above the bar. Even with earplugs in you feel it through the floor. Didnt stop until 2am but i still had a terrible night sleep. Honest opinion? Listen to the reviews. Its a good location but overall it has a few things that could be improved.

    Great location with great friendly staff on site! What I did not realise is that the hostel is on top of a bar so can get pretty noisy at night although they do provide free ear plugs. Rooms were very basic and was disappointed with the cleanliness of the rooms as well at the shower and toilets. One shower per 12 person room, and 2 toilets between 3 rooms. Awesome bar downstairs, it's just a shame the hostel isn't up to the same standards.

    This hostel was filthy my bed had left over hair all over it, there was chewing gum left on the light by my bunk, every surface was sticky, the bathrooms weren't clean and the shower leaked water all over the floor. The music and base from the pub downstairs kept me up till 2 even with head phones trying to block out the noise. The beds were terrible a triple bunk so if you got the middle all you could do is lay flat no where to sit or relax and the chill out room downstairs was filthy and smelt

    Dirtier than the pictures made it seem. The bathrooms and shower were not clean. The lockers were small and my anti theft lock did not fit properly so I had to keep my bad with me the entire time during my stay. They did not have padlocks to rent. The bar was very loud at night.
