Only a short walk from Swiss Cottage stop on underground. Old building, but very clean and neat. Staff helpful, all u can eat breakfast for 41/2 pounds. Lots of decent, reasonably priced (for London) places to eat, along with grocery store nearby. Excellent wifi, and free computer usage.

I stayed at this hostel for four nights. During my stay my key stopped working about five times and the reception kept blaming me for it. The 28 bed dorm room didn't have enough outlets for everyone. It was also very dark. On my last night I was bitten about nine times around my back, legs, arms and face. I...

I stayed for 3 nights and it was perfect for nipping back and forth from the tube station and surrounding areas including Camden. I stayed in the 12 bed female only and the bed was fine as were bathrooms which were being cleaned constantly! Would stay again as the price was great and location too.

This hostel stands out from typical touristy hostel.It felt more like a hotel.The location is perfect,next to Regents park,very central and approachable. The building is gorgeous and the inside is well decorated .The rooms are clean and specious.Beds are comfortable just maybe not big enough for tall people. People of all ages stay there.There is no age restriction I guess...

Although it's a bit out of the way, this hostel is my favourite in London. It's a pretty easy tube ride and it's worth it. The bunks have curtains and individual lights. The washrooms are clean and it's very safe. The wifi is also strong. If you stay in the four person room, you'll be in the attic which is...

Room: I lived in the 21-bed room and on the upper-layer bad. The pace is a little small. If you are taller and stronger, should ask for the lower bed. Only lower bed can access the plug easily. Bathroom: Clean, but you need bring our own shower gel and shampoo Breakfast: cost 4.5£ but you can get a really good...

Tube station close. Staff did't guide me at all when I arrived. They only gave me my room and bed number and key. Did not tell me where is the breakfast served or how the laundry room works etc. I was a bit dissappointed beacause of this 'cause I had read so much good reviews about friendly Staff there :/

Overall, it's a great stay for me. I booked the en suite private room and I love my room as it was spacious and the shower was hot and strong. The hostel also allows you to store your luggage and come back to collect them before heading to the airport. This is a free service. Staff are also friendly and...

Palmers is one of my favourite hostels in the world: it's very neat and clean, the beds are comfortable and each bunk has its own little curtain so that you can get a bit of privacy if you want to. I almost always stay in the female dormitories and especially the one with the en-suite bathroom is very nice and...
