I stayed at The Monkeys in the Trees for 2 nights and loved it. The staff was cool and helpful, there was a great social atmosphere, it was good value, and very clean. I would definitely come back to this hostel!

I found the photos of TMITTs a bit misleading as it looked great and modern. It's above a nice hotel, but located in the middle of a residential street with nothing interesting nearby except the bus stop! There's no toilets on the top level, meaning you had to walk down the creaky stairs in the middle of the night. The... More

I have stayed in hostel in february (3 nights). I travelled with a friend and we were in room for 6 females. The room is tiny, but everything you actually need is some space for luggage and hangers for coat/towel (enough hangers and enough space). The room is as clean as are the ones who occupy it. The bathrooms had... More

I stay in hostels all over the world. They are always a great way to meet strange and interesting people. This place is no exception! Thoroughly charming staff (even the owner!) The bar is great with a superb range of whisky. Ask Jakub which one is his favourite!

Pub was comfortable, welcoming; location was decent, staff were friendly, courteous and knowledgable. Beds were squeaky, unstable, and in some cases unsafe (semi-detached ladders, no railings), mattresses were the worst I have encountered in 15 years of hostels, comparable to sleeping on a box of bundled wires. Noisy and run down, things needed repair; especially broken showers, faucets, and fans.... More

I stayed 11 nights here due to working in the area in a 6 bed mixed dorm on the first floor. Positive Points:- - For a London hostel it's very good value, you will be hard pressed to find a cheaper dorm room in zone 2 London - Most beds have privacy curtains, reading lights so you can have privacy...

We stayed here as our first stop in London, not too hard to get to from Heathrow Airport. Going out at night was a bit of a walk to the Tube station, otherwise there are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. The hostel is in a really quiet area, and a pin code is needed to enter after 11pm I... More

Very good hostel considered how cheap it is. Staff is friendly and the atmosphere in the dorms and common room was welcoming. Dorms were a little messy and bathroom floors were almost wet and the kitchen was in horribl condition but I blame the fellow travelers instead of staff. Cleaners came everyday and did a good job but the second... More
