Hostel is right in front of Borough underground station. Location wise is perfect. Near to London Bridge and Borough market. If you dont mind a little walk, you could actually walk to Tower Bridge like I did. Staff was helpful when I asked for a cab and they told me to take public bus as a cheaper alternative.

Stuff was friendly. Location was great. Only comment is that cleaning lady was using pretty strong cleaning detergent in every day usage. I know it is important to sanitize kitchen but not so often in kitchen in which is basically used only microwave. My mother is allergic to strong detergents so it bother her. No big deal but not so... More

Hostel is nearby London Bridge and Borough Market. Place is nice and clean but kitchen is always occupied with people who uses laptop so there is no space available for you to sit down and eat in the kitchen.

Good spot to stay, nothing bad to say about this hostel. I had a good time there and met good people. The bar located in the hostel is very good place to socialize, you can meet local as well as travelers.

This is a good little backpackers hostel. Really good location and really well priced. The rooms can be noisy but it was just to be expected if u want peace and quiet go to the countryside. The staff we're really friendly and helpful. A good place to meet random people. Will def use next time I go back to london.

I stayed here with my friends and it wasokay. It's good for a stay over night and then youcan travel around London. I liked the breakfasts. Milk, cereals, water, juice, toast breads (white and dark), marmelades, butter, and toasters. Also you can have a tea or a coffee. If you're a light sleeper, I don't recommend this hostel because it's... More

It is cheap and convenient. Staff were friendly and helpful. The place was about as clean a hostel as could be expected, there isn't enough showers or toilets for all the people, which is the same for (nearly) all hostels in London. Breakfast is basic and fine. Only down side is the room was very hot and there was a... More

Easily explained: You get what you pay for. The hostel wasn't too nice, but the location was good. A lot of people partying in the pub downstairs. The staff was friendly and helpful, probably not extremely knowledgeable about London (not too bad).

Hostel was pretty good value for money, we only stayed for the one night and it was just somewhere to sleep for a few hours before we had to move on. It's in a great location, and near to the tube and Borough Market too. The only thing I think that could be better is if breakfast was on for... More

Staying in Southwark

Neighborhood Profile
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighborhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
