Stayed there with three other friends in a room of 4. Price is very cheap and you get what you pay for basically. Location is brilliant as it is close to Camden town and the stations, however it is best if you only spend a few hours a day there as it is noisy during the night and very tight... More

Thank you very much for your feedback. The rule of no guests in the rooms after 10PM was put in place for a reason, at it is a quiet time already and especially if one didn't book a private room it may interrupt other guests' sleep. We provide affordable accommodation for budget-minded travellers. More

I'd been looking around for cheap accommodation for a bit of a mad weekend in London, & found this backpackers hostel. It was well placed for the purpose of my visit, so I booked. Easy to find, everything in close proximity, & I thought it would be right for at least a few hours kip when needed. Oh dear. First... More

Thank you for your review. We take all the feedback very seriously. We have different types of dormitories to suit different types of travellers depending on their budget. We offer a cheap and competitive accommodation at very good location, and the noise is sometimes the price you pay for it. We hope you will visit us again. More

We stayed there for 5 nights. When we first arrived we were a bit shocked about the conditions, it wasn't something we would expect in London: poor cleaning, really small and very noisy at late hours of the night. However, we were there just a few hours a day so it was ok, once the hostel has a very good... More

So stayed here with 8 girlfriends for a birthday night in Camden. We all came back at different times during our night out, one of us at 1am, 5 of us at 3am and the remaining 2 at 4:30am. At 4:30am I was awoken up one of the remaining two of our group, saying that the guy on reception was... More

Stayed here for a weekend with a friend for my birthday whilst attending the Great British Tattoo show at Alexandra Palace! Was sceptical due to the low price but it was fine, we stayed in a big room (I cant quite remember how many other people now) but everyone was fine and there were lockers available for your things!

It's a particular home converted in hostel that they put in it a crowd squeezed. We were a room for six and it'd be for two, no place for lugagge no place for move in room. Usually people were drinking, Saturday at 3:00 am a hustle and bustle. If someone no wants sleep at night it's a perfect place

We were really taken aback by the bad attitude of the hostel's receptionist - the Arab guy with curly hair, whom we found very unhelpful, arrogant and at times downright rude. A totally uncalled-for behaviour. The check in process took about 30 min. The dorm was grubby and stuffy with no room to swing a cat. Poor breakfast and bad... More

If low prices is what you are looking for, while having good time in London, then you should take a closer look at Smart Camden Inn. While having only the bare essentials of comfort in it, it's very friendly and extremely cheap for Camden Town (best place for attending parties and gigs in whole London city).

It's a simple place....let's keep this review simple too. Good Points. Location. Slap bang in the middle of Camden with tube station close by. Clean Bathroom which had a hot shower with good pressure. Quick and easy check in and out. Cheap. £16.50 a night (per person) including breakfast. (never ate breakfast so can't comment on that) Bad Points. Tiny... More
