I stayed here for 3 nights in May 2014. Good price but you get what you pay for! A convent-like atmosphere, with dirty, badly maintained bathrooms. The room itself was small but clean. It looked out onto a pleasant garden. No WIFI available for short stays, and an "Internet Room" from the 80's. I didn't use any of the common... More

This is a functional ladies hostel if you need a quick and cheap place to stay in London. The staff was helpful and responsive most of the time. The room was small, neat and tidy with a twin bed, a wardrobe, a small shelf and a sink. The kitchen was large and uncluttered. I was given my own set of... More

I stayed here for 3 nights last week. I will never go here again. A week before my visit I sent an e-mail asking for room that didn't face the street. I got no response and when I asked again at the reception I got a room facing the street side. I arrived at 11 am. My room wasn't ready.... More

What a great place to stay. I am a 22 year old female, single guest. I had a single bedroom and paid about £30 My single bedroom was clean, petite, had a single bed, wardrobe, sink and desk with chair. I had a garden facing room which was very quiet. A block of 3 toilets and shower cubicles were located... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in June 2013. I wanted a quiet, safe, basic and cheap place close to a Tube station - and this fit the bill. To be honest, I have no idea what one of the other commenters is on about...for £25/night in London, a secure quiet single room is a steal. Of course it's going... More

Located at mornington crescent, near camden town. very clean and comfy rooms, although basic, but good value for money. showers are clean, i was pleasantly surprised. Also, its more of a residence rather than a hostel. Its women-only which is safer for female travellers. Has its own kitchen and laundry room. Caution, reception is not helpful at all.

I stayed here during the Olympics and was surpised by the great rates. I cannot say enough about the friendly staff member that was on duty during my stay.

Nice location in Camden, within walking distance of Regent's Par and with good transport connections to the centre. My room was facing the street and was rather noisy, so if you're a light sleeper ask for one overlooking the garden. The room itself was small and not exactly clean, the same can be said about the shared bathroom. Access to... More

This was my first sojourn at this women only hostel. I arrived not really expecting top notch accommodation due to its hostel status, but I have to say certain aspects of my stay pleasantly surprised me. These were, comfortable bed, decent, clean room and helpful staff. The main problem was with the shower, it was far too clumsy and cramped... More
