This smart but basic hostel offered everything that I was looking for; a private room with a double bed, a clean bathroom and a pub downstairs with a good atmosphere. Easily accessable via the tube and just a quick walk.

Great prices, good drinks on offer, friendly staff. Would deffo recommend. Only stayed one night but would definitely stay here again. Not far out of the city centre. Super nice bathrooms but there isn't many.

Major note - if you are in town for three full, or more, days then you NEED to get the Oyster 7-day card. If you get it with Zones 1-2, you'll have to disembark at Willesden Green and walk for approx. 10-15 minutes depending on your speed. If you get Zones 1-3, you can get off at the reasonably closer...

The staff is nice, but the place smells and it's too far from the centre. I don't recommend staying if you're going to visit London. There's a nice bakery near by though.I actually visited the place in November 2015. Maybe things have improved! But notice, the place is a pub too, so it can be loud at night.

There's a bar with special offers, nice atmosphere, friendly staff, and the place is roasting hot because of the heaters everywhere. All that for a flipping fiver - amazing considering this is London really. Decent budget choice all in all.

I always find it amusing when people claim to have stayed in hostels around the world and then give a bad review because the other guests in the room were noisy or there was hair in the shower.... Anyway, I stayed in a private room due to working night shifts, so I just needed a bed for a couple days....

It's a cheap hostel, the building is from the Victorian era. I've been sleeping there for a week and it's totally worth its price: It's not at the very center of London, but you can get to Baker Street station in a few tube stations, so in my opinion location it's not that bad. There is a really nice pub...

I've been here for 3 days and after reading the reviews I expected the worst. I paid 12£ for 2 nights without the key deposit. For this price it could not have been better. Really friendly staff and you even had your own bathrooms,no shared shower rooms which I liked. It's pretty close to the city center so that was...

This hostel is at a pub located close to a tube station not too far from central which is great for the budget. I found it very laid back and is probably the best choice for the money that I found online.
