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 a continental breakfast (?6) 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.

The common rooms were filthy, the staff was understaffed and not energetic at all. There were loads of younger people running around screaming and making sex noises in the hallways. Didn’t like the atmosphere of the place at all

Staff was great and very helpful with every issue. Issues included but were not limited to: keycards not working every 2nd time we tried, feeling EXTREMELY uncomfortable in the rooms as females with only men (ages 35+) who had no manners or hostel etiquette. Location was ok, better bus than metro connections.
