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.

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. 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.

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.

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.
