    Good hostel for location. Staff were sometimes nice, sometimes rude. Wifi intermittent. Would probably recommend. Didn't have breakfast, so cannot comment. No kitchen to prepare own food if wanted. Near bus/train/tube stops.

    Best hostel I've stayed in (equal with the Safestay in Holland Park!). Staff helpful and friendly - I am currently in a wheelchair and they made sure the room and bed were appropriate. Very satisfied.

    Efficient and crowdy place but still nice and friendly, reasonable balance between price and location. Nice staff, good breakfast, noisy street on one side. Walking distance from the underground and city centre.

    we were six people, 3 children and 3 grown-ups and enjoyed the stay at Elefant&Castle a lot. The building is good, location is perfect. Booking was easy and quick. We really enjoyed it. Highly recommended.

    Great hostel near metro station and bus. In addition, in zone 1. I appreciate the curtains on the bunk beds and privacy. I also really liked the interior. Very friendly and helpful staff. I like to return to the hotel in the future. :)

    Bus is cheapest but prone to delays. We would get the Gatwick Express Connection to the underground which ends at Victoria then use the tube to Elephant & Castle, then it's a 10 minute walk from the station to the hostel... More
