    Everything was clean and quiet during my stay, the staff was awesome and insanely helpful when I needed to make some changes to my booking, and the sauna was a highlight of my stay. However, if you have to catch an early flight the daytime reception hours make things a little tough. But overall, an awesome place to stay!!

    I stayed in the Finnish Church for 1 night as I was over for the London Marathon. I was seeking somewhere near to a rail connection; somewhere not too loud; and somewhere not too expensive. The Finnish church met all these criteria. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. The staff were very helpful and able to help with our early checkout. I would recommend this location for anyone looking a "quieter" stay.

    Really loved our night in the Finnish Church. Room was perfect, breakfast was great and the calm relaxing feel of the church was just what we needed after a bust day exploring London.

    Nice, clean, quiet, restful hostel within two subway stops of London Bridge. Friendly staff. Grocery store, large Decathlon sporting goods store and mall nearby. Bunks were comfortable. There was a fridge and kettle in the room. Nice bathroom. No individual lights or charging stations for the bunks. Could have used one more power strip to plug in everyone’s phones. Nice, secure outdoor seating area. Space to hang out inside is limited by church hours/activities/staff schedules. Would go back.

    It was a nice and quiet place to sleep. People were respectful and didnt make noise when trying to sleep and most people slept early. So maybe not the best hostal to make friends but good if you want a great place to stay. But i only was in hostal to sleep and one time i arrived later and there was live music and people dancing. Don't think it was hostal people but looked fun.

    Very good, comfortable accommodation, close to underground. Quiet as there are church facilities in the building. Dorm was female only and ensuite and it wasn't even fully booked so it was quiet and friendly. I found my stay very relaxing. :)
