we stayed for 4 nights in a 6 room dorm. the location was excellent - it is located less than a 10 minutes walk from earls court station, and there are many shops and eateries around. earls court station is located on the piccadilly and victoria lines, and is a few stops away from central london. the room itself is...

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

I stayed here twice. For a few days at the end of August and a few more after returning from a trip to Rome at the start of September. It was a bit strange for me staying in a hostel as I had lived in London for almost 10 years until recently. But I was very impressed with the Barmy... More

As I was on a backpacking trip, it helped that the hostel was about 10 mins walk max from Earls Court station and on the direct line to Heathrow (no need to rush around the many stairs in the London Metro with my luggage). Rooms was pretty clean and when we checked in, we were given fresh bedsheets and pillowcases... More

Loved this place. Stayed here several times during my eurotrip as it was everything I could ask for. AMAZING friendly staff that bent over backwards for me time and time again. Permanent guests are now some if my greatest friends. Can't wait to get back to London to stay here again.

I really enjoyed my 7 days stay at Barmy Badger in a room of 6. It´s in a nice and safe part of the London city. Great location near the Earl´s Court Underground station, just 3 blocks away. In the room you may find a big locker (enough for huge luggage) and a digital safe inside. You can also find... More

Right next to the Tube Station. Very clean place and best part they have digital safe for laptops inside each locker. Good wifi speed and plenty of power sockets inside the room. I stayed for 4 nights in the 4 girls room with ensuite bathroom. Met new friends and good value for money. Rashmi Lakhyani
