Stayed in this hostel many times and will do again its cheap and in a great location in Camden with shops and food places very close by. There are always people in the tv room downstairs so great for making friends. The only minor downside is that the 4 bed rooms are a bit small but that's ok for the... More

Even though the smart Camden inn is very cheap it's still not worth it. The rooms are extremely small and there isn't even enough room to sit up straight on the beds.. The lockers in the room will not open unless you pay a fee to the people at reception and the breakfast only included cornflakes and toast which i... More

I seriously regret booking this hostel. It's cheap and it's in a great location but there in a bar very near that BLASTS music until 4am. I am love to bar hop and stay out too, but I got no sleep because of the noise. Because of the noise, I would not recommend.

For the cost per night charged in London the place. Is worth it. I will recommend maximum stay of one night. The service was god the staff were ver friendly. The space is very small only one person can use the stairs.

Upon arrival, we were told that our booking was cancelled. They offered almost zero information as to how/why it was cancelled and blamed us. We spent about 45 minutes waiting as they sorted it out. They ended up splitting the group and having us switch rooms after the first night. Rooms and bathroom were tiny, could barely use the toilet... More

After reading the negative reviews here, we decided to book it anyways and just suck it up. We expected the hostel to be dirty and the staff to be rude, but we found just the opposite! Staff were helpful and accommodating, and the place was kept clean. The rooms are small, but hey - it's London. We didn't go there... More

The Staff very friendly. Breakfast I would advise you take something you like for it. If you are ok with toast/jam or Cornflakes then ok.. Most of the other guests were of different nationalities which was an enriching experience for me.

I stayed here for three nights and wish I had stayed somewhere else. I stayed in a 12 person room and everything and everyone was on top of one another. There is way too many beds shoved into one room which makes everything extremely uncomfortable. The bathrooms are so tiny there is no place to move, it is literally the... More
