I stayed at this hostel, because of the price and the location, which is a perfect place to stay in in Central London. Good points: staff was friendly, good breakfast, WiFi, worked, hot showers and friendly travelers. Good bed mattress to sleep in. Friendly laid back atomspehere, young hip travelers so you will have good mates next to you. Bad...

My boyfriend booked this due to its good location. Thats really the only good thing about it. We had a private room on the ground floor near reception. The room was spacious enough and had a tv. The sheets didn't seem all that clean and there was a large window behind the bed, great for light, but letting in a...

Was in a rush to find a cheap place to stay, so booked this place for 2 nights. Great location without doubt, good receptionist, mediocre facilities, messy and tiny room, poor bunk beds. The first night stay was really a nightmare, so many people were snoring and the whole room smelled disgusting. The sounds from the street is rather loud....

Had a single room which had adequate space, it is a backpackers after all Other facilities are basic. Shower facilities very cramped. Provided a basic breakfast but you could make your own pancakes which was a nice touch. Staff friendly and helpful. Great location close to St Pancreas station.

The staff seem nice... price wasn't bad for location... the cramped bedrooms aren't the greatest so I would hate to stay there for more than one night and sober. Having the lockers out in the hallway was a bit dodgy to me - I was a bit worried about all our stuff.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to write a review. We're sorry to hear that you didn't like the room. We do have rooms that are small which is the reason why we couldn't put the lockers inside the rooms, so we could save as much space as possible.

Myself and a few friends stayed at the Home Hostel for a weekend. Checking in was straight forward, although you have to pay an additional fee for a locker (per day), which is very uncommon in hostel. In addition, the lockers are situated outside of the rooms. The hostel is quite cramped. We stayed in a 9 bed mixed dorm,...

I really liked this hostel. It had a lot of nice facilities including boardgames, movies, tv, good kitchen facilities and cool vibe. It was also pretty cheap considering the location. It was not the cleaniest hostel or the largest one, but that's why I liked it. You can enjoy the different types of people who are all nice there. They...
