worst place I have been hosted in years. the staff is really rude with guests. the rooms are small, dirty and uncomfortable. the neighborhood is quite creepy at night and I was not able to sleep well because the place was very noisy.

When I stayed here it was really cheap, so it was great for my budget, great for backpackers and people who just want to travel a lot and just have a place to rest without being fancy. It's worth it. The location was great. People were nice and friendly.

When choosing where to stay my friends and I prioritised saving money and location which is why we chose the Waterloo London Hostel. It was the cheapest available had free wifi and breakfast, and was in a great location. That being said it may not be for everyone. The building is quite old but management cleans the bathrooms, kitchens, and...

Having read numerous reviews to try and find out when the queue is the shortest what no one wrote is that you can't start queuing until 30 mins before the time stated on your ticket so there is no point in getting there earlier if you already have a ticket!! We opted for 17:45 started in the queue at 17:15...

I booked the hostel on a whim as my plane took off headed to London. When I arrived I was greeted by the owner, who was so sweet and professional. She answered all my questions and even asked me if I needed certain things, which in the end I did (a power converter). This hostel fit all my needs. It...

PLEASE NOTE: now called the London Waterloo Hostel. My partner and I specifically booked this hostel through Hostelworld because of the kitchen described in the listing. We are backpackers who are travelling on a shoestring, so a kitchen is really important to us from a money-saving perspective, especially when staying in London where eating out is very expensive. Note: this...

This was a very affordable hostel and included breakfast and WIFI. The other guests were fun to interact with as was the beer pong. It is what you would expect from a hostel, but could use a few upgrades. The beds don't have curtains, so an eye mask is a necessity! If you're next to the lobby, it will be...

I stayed there 4 nights in an all girls dorm. The location of the hostel is really good - walking distance from big ben and london eye (about 15 minutes) and near a tube (lembeth north-7 minutes) and in a quiet area. It is however a bit difficult to find in the first time. The staff were really nice and...

“DON'T ever let them put you in room 13... it's adjacent to the "lobby" - and some crazy people enjoy sitting there at 3:30 and make a noise.”
