I had a great time here! It is definitely one of the cheapest hostel in London. but still it is very clean and convenient. One of the great things I love is that all the beds have sockets and lights and USB charging points, all beds have privacy curtain and a locker under the bed. The staffs are very friendly...

Arrived last Sunday and had booked a private room. The room was pretty dirty, with stains on the bed sheets and walls. The shared male bathroom cubicle walls were disgusting and looked like they had not been cleaned for months. Streaks of God knows what all down the sides. This was my main issue and left the hostel two days...

I got a room with 15 beds in it and it was booked full. Unfortunately someone in the room smelled rather foul and made a permanent stench in the room. The bed itself was very uncomfortable and gave a bad sleep. The staff were nice and the other guests were hit and miss. Location wise, it is outside of the...

London Backpackers is a great place to stay for a few days while searching for a permanent accommodation in London: the price is convenient and the hostel is just in front of Hendon Central Station (Northern line), which makes it also well connected to the city centre. Staff is kind and friendly and all the place is very clean. The...

Before I could actually move in to my student dorm close to London, I needed a place to stay for 4 nights. Well, I enjoyed it so much! Staff were so friendly, especially the female kitchen and cleaning staff. With the right people the right hostel feel. Beds were ok, equipped with own electricity and light + curtain for some...

Nice staff. Nice visitors. Nice public transport. Nice location. Opportunities to charge many devices at once are given. Curtains in front of each bed to have a bit of privacy. Many opportunities to go to toilet so you don't need to wait often.

I stayed here on and off for several months. The staff are great and make a good atmosphere. The place is far more homely than other hostels, with people staying for weeks or months at a time. The kitchen and living room feel much more like a dorm flat than a hostel and the residents when I stayed were mostly...
