This hostel is a very cheap and safe place to stay, if you're looking for a place to sleep for a few nights in London its perfect, but don't expect a lot more, the beds are very small and loud (especially if you're sharing a room with people). The breakfast was so bad it I was better off without it... More

Located in a small town easily accessible by the tube, the property is approx 5 minutes away on foot from Willesden Green. Beds are clean, though showers are a little scanty (the ones near the mixed dorm were spoilt). Breakfast is sufficient and can be easily supplemented by some cooking in the kitchenette, and ingredients can be bought at the... More

If you are looking for a place to rest your weary head and you're not too fussed about high quality accommodation, this is the place to stay. 5 min walk to nearest tube station (Willesdon Green) and only £5 parking for your car per day, a total bargain for London! So ok, you may not be in an ensuite room,... More

We found our experience here just average. We had little communication with the staff, we avoided the bar to dodge the buzzing of countless American accents, the location is great, it's near the tube and a supermarket, but the building itself is almost more like a hotel.

I have the pleasure of stay in this hostel for 7 days, the envirement is really good, the staff is allways tryng to help, and the restaurant inside is an excellent option for travellers. The bus stop that take you to the centre is just across the street, the neighborhood is beatifull.

Palmers Lodge is the best hostel I have stayed in! Stayed in a private twin room with private shower and shared bathroom. The room was spotless as was the shared bathroom. WiFi can be a bit iffy but can still connect (sometimes) in the room. Very safe and includes many facilities. Ate in the on site bar and it was... More

This is an excellent hostel that is not far from anywhere. I stayed here for 2 nights because it was close to Wembley arena and I enjoyed my stay. Breakfast was good. Only 4 to a room that is clean. Lots of places to walk and sit and a great motorbike museum. The price was not bad for London. Internet... More

Brilliant accommodation with everything you could ask for & more - the most helpful staff we have encountered in a London hostel, sparkling clean bathrooms, luxurious shower pressure, a good in-house bar/restaurant, security lockers that even fit our huge travel packs, croissants for breakfast, and a relaxed atmosphere! It is a bit of a walk (10-15mins) to the nearest metro... More

Had a wonderful stay at Hillspring! Stayed in a 4 bed mixed, and it was perfectly sized! The lockers were an incredible size with a built in key card lock. I'd recommend this hostel to anyone visiting London. The tube ride into downtown was easy!
