London backpackers Hostel is a great value for money! Despite being located quite a distance from central London, the hostel is situated directly outside Hendon Central station so it is really quite convenient. Staff at the reception were really friendly and helpful. Instructions were explained in detail and they were more than willing to answer any questions. Opted to stay... More

The place is very far from everything, $$ to get there and back from everywhere and anywhere. The staff was okay not very helpful, it was semi clean bathrooms were not great, social scene was a little different. I personally would never stay here again but it was cheap.

This hostel had some nice features I did not expect. All of the rooms have free lockers (you would have to bring your own lock), outlets in each bed, and curtains on each bed so you can pull them closed and be in darkness while you sleep. It is out of town but right across the street from the subway... More

If you're someone looking for a cheap and cheerful bed at night in the capital then this is your holy grail. I'm guessing if you're visiting London, you'll be out the hostel from 8am 'til late anyway so room standards shouldn't be your top priority. The rooms fit 18 or 20 at a time on 3-tier bunk beds with privacy... More

Nice clean rooms and bathrooms. A little far from downtown london but very easy to get Around by metro. Staff wasnt overly friendly and the main commonroom where a very underwhelming breakfast of bread and cheese was served, was very small and crowded.

This was a pretty decent hostel. Good value for the money we paid. It's a ways outside the city, around maybe 30-45 min on the tube. If you're looking to be right in the middle of the action of London, this isn't for you. I happen to like being able to get away from the hubbub at night, so this... More

Far from the city centre, but right next to a tube station. Good bus connections too, and bus is a bit cheaper option than tube for those who have the time. A very good local attraction is the RAF Museum, which has a free admission nowadays! My dorm room was ok, a great thing was that there are plugs next... More

This place is cheap, and facilities are good. It's cleaned on a regular basis, and the staff is friendly and helpful. They also serve free beakfast every morning. It is, however, located far away from the action. It's about half an hour with the tube to Westminster. The metro station is located just down the street from the hostel, but... More
