The rooms, bathrooms and showers were clean. The basic breakfast was sufficient as well. The employees were very helpful especially the French receptionist. Hostel experience although for me was a 2 out of 5. You really are living on top of each other and constantly being woken up by other people. The people staying in the dorms are very nice, it’s just hard to get a good night rest with so many people in the room with you. Most people in the dorm rooms are considerate and aware that we are sharing the space. The age range here should be 18-24.

A very friendly hostel to stay in the facilities are very good, I stayed in the mixed dorm 18 bed room very good and quiet mid-week, can be a bit busy on weekends and so tends to be a little louder. Very nice breakfast and friendly kitchen area to make food and rest.

I do not recommend booking here at all! They have a very sneaky clause that if you pay upfront, which I was made to when booking, then they will not give you ANY money back upon cancellation well in advance. Scammers.

Came here for one night with some friends as we were watching the England game. There is a bus straight to Wembley or its £12 in an uber so good location. We were in a mixed dorm of 18 beds. The place is clean and beds are comfy. Tea, toast or cereal for breakfast. All some people did was moan about this place and were so negative, but what do you expect for £11 a night! It's cheap and staff are nice. If you want want the ritz then pay ritz prices.

Cool little hostel and away from city center so quite little area right beside tube. Nice breakfast and a very very hot French receptionist, good WiFi and showers plus kitchen area. Only fault is cleaners spending ages cleaning rooms and toilets so can't shower. 4/5

I have stayed in many a budget accommodation in London in my time and this place is by far the best. I paid £50 for a two night stay in a private room with a comfortable double bed, a television, a storage area and even a television, with free wifi to top it off you really cannot go wrong! The bed was clean and comfortable and I felt perfectly safe laying my head to rest here. The toilets and washing facilities are perfectly clean and even in a pandemic I felt completely safe using them. I will be staying here whenever I come to London,thank you for a lovely stay!!

This hostel was amazing very clean nicely decorated great facilities great location ( minutes from Hendon Central) basic but good breakfast included clean toilet /shower facilities ( not unisex like other hostels) stayed in twin room which was a good size with 2 windows so nice to have a view and fresh air free breakfast basic but ample key code for door which made access a lot easier not having to remember swipe card when you went to loo etc quiet hardly any noise heard from fellow travellers really good price but most importantly the staff and fellow travellers were very friendly a lovely community feeling would definitely stay again and recommend to others.. Thanks muchly London Backpackers for a great 5 night stay.. Best wishes Andrea and Oliver
