My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights, cheap touring london. Breakfast was good, toilet and showers were clean, although we didn't get any hot water. We got the biggest room, right beside reception so was very noisy at night. Air inside the room was very stuffy because there was only 1 small window. Not sure if I would... More

Room for 12p: small, crowded, yet it delivers everything you need with light and sockets. The rooms do get lots of natural light. The showers and toilets are fine. Kitchen was a disappointment with size and quality Location: really close to Waterloo-station + safe area = great Staff: Laid-back, helpful. friendly (although 1 staff-member was really friendly and cheerful, which...

It's good to know that when you stay in a hostel, you feel safe and don't need to worry about the amenities. London Eye Hostel provides a no-nonsense, friendly atmosphere and provides the necessities of hostel standard. As you enter, your receptionist is very informative and helpful. There are tables for meals and Internet / wi-fi availability. One of the... More

We had budget issue, so my two colleagues and I decided to look for a hostel instead of a B&B. It turned out right!! They put the three of us in a 'private' room on the first floor. Being in a room shared only by the three of us made us feel safe and comfortable, especially for me who is... More

As long as you know what to expect from a basic cheap hostel there won't be any disappointments. Safe area, friendly staff at reception, good enough beds, not too hot in the rooms, working showers and toilets... Nothing to complain about. Except maybe the amount of flies in there.

I stayed at the hostel for a couple nights in a private triple (two of us shared the 3-bed room) and then moved to the huge 20 bunk room for one night when the other was booked up. The private 3 bed room was fairly small, but not too many complaints. Double bed on bottom, single bed as the top... More

Nice place to stay if you travel alone or with some friends. It's not very clean but the location is the best. I've shared a bedroom with 13 people, It's a good place if the only thing you need is a bed and a good breakfast.

- Washrooms: Impeccable. Cleaned pretty much every other hour or so. - Showers: Extremely clean. I only had one instance in which there was hair in the shower, that was cleaned up almost immediately. - Location: 2 minutes walking to the left of the hostel is a laundrette and a great pizza place. 5 minutes walking to the right you've...
