A night here in a standard dormitory is roughly 30 pounds, so already double the price of most other hostels. So as you can imagine, I was thinking that this was some kind of deluxe hostel, this was not the case. The staff are only there because they get free room and board and so while they appear to be...

Location is nice, food was of acceptable quality for price, people were friendly. Building was so old very nice. So interesting history, the hostel is a charity begun in 1945, providing employment and accommodation for gay foreign nationals.

I was scared to go there cos of all the negative reviews, but I decided to give it a shot cos of the cost. It was amazing: friendly staff, great location, great room mates, and great value for money. You also get breakfast/dinner or breakfast/lunch over the weekend. Not the most amazing food, but it was good. Also, book online... More

BEDBUGS and constant fumigations which were completely useless. No security AT ALL. IMPOLITE, LAZY, UNRELIABLE, UNSCRUPULOUS MEMBERS OF THE STAFF whose treatment leaves a lot to be desired. DIRTINESS mostly anywhere. Most of the FOOD provided is practically INEDIBLE. EXPENSIVE accommodation, taking into account the awful conditions described above. Pay attention to the capital letters to avoid unexpected surprises. Being... More

I stayed at Belsize House from December 2010 until March 2011. I wanted to stay there until the end of my study at University here in London. However, due to terrible conditions at the place I decided to leave. Right from the beginning the service provided by the staff of Belsize House was bad. The employees were at times rude... More

This hostel has no security. My key opened other people's rooms, and I stayed in someone else's room for 4 nights while they were on holiday, as I could not find my room. My room was in another wing of the hostel, which I didn't know about. I asked at reception, and they informed me that whichever room my key... More
