Only stayed here for one night and had no problems. All bedding was clean, fresh, and comfy. Bathrooms and shower stalls were clean. I would prefer showers where the temperature is controllable. Had a good sandwich at Belushi's for a reasonable price after the hostel discount. 24 hour reception meant someone was there early in the morning when I checked... More

I stayed at a St Christopher's in Paris and imo the hostel there was nicer and more modern than this one, so I automatically was disappointed. Did not like that there was no common place to hang out and no wifi on the top floor. Not a good vibe, could probably do better in London.

Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We do indeed house ourselves in an older building and so some of that 'charm' will always be around. However, we are in the process of upgrading many of our facilities as well as our wifi. We do have a chill out room, our common room, at... More

Can't beat the location, at the heart of Southwark, stone's throw from the Bridge. Dirt cheap for the money, decent breakfast and cheap drinks, wi-fi and lockers in rooms. Quite safe. So all your basics in place which is what you can ask for in London. Now the problem. The famous Belushi's was loud with a lot of drunk peeps... More

Hey there, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. Sometimes we know Belushi's can get a bit rowdy and we encourage our guests to have a good time, but I appreciate how it might get a bit much sometimes. I'll be sure to pass on your comments to the management. Hope to see you again, happy travels... More

This hostel is your average hostel with clean bedrooms and in a handy spot. The bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner and probably need a bit of work - one of the drains popped out as I was showering as it was blocked. We found the location was handy and not too far away from what we wanted to... More

I satyed in this hostel for more than a week and I liked. The staff is very nice. The rooms and the common spaces are very agreeable. The only thing that was not perfect was that I needed to change rooms very often because the hostel was almost full.

This was the very first hostel I ever stayed at and it was a very pleasant experience. The location was perfect - right next to London Bridge tube station which made it so easy to get around everywhere, and across the road from the Borough Markets which I thoroughly recommend.

Staying in Southwark

Neighborhood Profile
Southwark
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.
