The rooms were awful, too many people packed into one space. I was lucky to be in a room of six as the poor excuse of a shower/toilet (much like a airplane loo) was destroyed after all of us had used it! The beds were horrendous, I had a single bed but wished for a bunk as I could feel... More

i was not interested in the hostel but wanted to see Baden Powell's House as I am a scouter. There is not a museum there but there is a nice statue of Baden Powell. If you want a real treat take the train to Chingsford and take a cab to Gilwell Park. It is awesome especially if you have been... More

I stayed at the Baden-Powell House in 2009 and then again this year. I was very pleased that it had improved. It is in a good location, only a 5 min walk to the tube station in which their is not many changes to get to Westminster or to Euston Station. The bedrooms were okay, the décor was not great... More

I visited Baden Powell house with my scout group. It is in a great location. We had a 3 bunk room it was a good size with plenty of storage although not much hanging room for 5 teenage girls with lots of clothes. It was fairly clean however the bunks had a fair amount of chewing gum over them. Also... More

My boyfriend and I went to London and stayed in this hostel in a 8-bed-bedroom and private bathroom. The bedroom itself was ok, not big, but enough for 8 people (with not so much luggage). When using the bathroom, it felt like I was inside an airplane toilette, but it was cleaned once a day, and we were always the... More

This was our second trip to this hostel (first was about 7 years ago). We returned for the location and it's definitely the main benefit to this hostel. We stayed in a private room for 4 - the room actually slept 6 so we had a bit of extra room for luggage on the two empty beds. Yes, the bathroom... More

In Feb we took a group of school children to the Baden Powell. We were allocated the rooms prior to arrival which made life a lot easier. Only disappointment was the fact that we had 12 girls in one room - far too many as the girls were only aged 9,10,11 yeears old. The rooms were very clean and adequate... More
