The hostel is cheap if you book it in advance. Staff is friendly and excellent location, 10 min walk from London Bridge. In the room I stayed there was no wifi and quite cold during the night. Includes a (very) basic breakfast. A lot or shops nearby. It is an excellent option if you are traveling on budget.

I dont know why so many bad opinions. The hostel was very clean, the staff was nice, I didnot have to wait so long to use the shower, wifi worked rally good in the rooms, the hostel is in borough station, which is just 15 minutes to Westminister. So generaly speaking for the price it was really worth.

Big shout out to all the guys at the hostel. Really enjoyed staying there and the location is awesome. Visited the IWM at Elephant and Castle. About a 15 minute walk, no need for tubing. A lovely young lady behind the bar, always put a smile on my face.

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. Breakfast in... More

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.
