Ok let me start by saying over the years I have had the great fortune to stay in many different fantastic hostels around Europe, but Barmy Badger Backpackers was by far the best I have stayed at yet. The location is superb being just 5 minutes walk from Earl's Court underground station which is served by the district line which... More

I spent one night here, and I'll be happy to book it again on future visits. The staff/owners are very friendly and accommodating, and all areas were clean. I stayed in a female ensuite dorm with 4 beds, and it was good value. The beds were a bit hard, but thankfully that's how I prefer them

An amazing hostel to stay at. Relaxing and easy going type place where you can unwind and not worry about the stresses of the real world outside. The owners are friendly and accommodating in all aspects and ensure your stay is pleasant. Was recommended by a friend and can understand why they stayed here. Highly recommend.

Wonderful, warm room! Comfy beds! HUGE locker with safe. Communal bathroom was spotless. Coffee was delicious, and available at all hours! We just loved coming in at night and enjoying a fresh cup. Free brek was delish: Nutella, butter, huge wheat toast, Musli, bananas, coffee. Perfect. Earls Court is Food Street, and Sainsbury's is 100 feet from this hostel. Big... More

Stayed here twice on a Euro-vacation. It was a perfect hostel home base. The bustling tube station is a few blocks away, but to get there you walk past Sainsbury's and Starbucks and Pret a Mange and a few pubs and let's face it you need one of those stores at some point in the day. For my part, the... More

I only stayed 2 nights in the female-only dorm, but the hostel was clean and tidy. Although there wasn't much room in the dorm, there were big storage places under the bed and a large storage cupboard each with a safe inside which was big enough to store all reasonable sized valuables. Breakfast was cereal, toast, fruit and tea/coffee but... More

Stayed one night while over for the NFL. It was very much what you expect from a hostel in terms of the bedrooms. The staff were friendly, it is located close to the tube so it's easy to get about from here. Also a minutes walk from a main street with plenty of bars, restaurants on it.

I have pretty high standards for hostels and try my best to stay away from the grimey ones. This one definitely met my standards. London is generally a very expensive place to visit including their hotel accommodations. This place was pretty reasonably priced (still expensive in comparison to other hostels) and it was very close to the tube (border of... More
