I've spent four days at St Jame, on my first visit to England, and it was greit because of the staff, very kind and friendly. A good atmosphere making my stay better. Everything quite clean. Adecuate prices. The single point I think they should improve is the speed of the Internet.

If you wanna spend 2-3 nights with good connection to transportation, this is the place. The room is basic, the shared bathroom is clean but it is a little small. The room need to be renovated, my bunk bed was bend. But overall it is a hostel with good services.

Me and my parents stayed over for 4 nights in Saint James Backpackers which, for the expectations for a hostel, was a great accomodation. Firstly, we stayed at a triple bunk bed room with a sink, offering us privacy. Bathrooms were cleaned daily (several times even) and no need for waiting. Good wifi service and close to the Tube, being... More

Pristine white terrace houses line Longridge road, all unassuming until you open the door at number 21 and receive a warm welcome. I was in contact with the staff at Saint James prior to taking up a room, they were nothing but accommodating and super helpful, and continue to be. Starting from the ground floor, the residence is clean and... More

I stayed for 2 nights at the end of January 2015. Nice, easy, convenient and clean. Suitable for backpackers. Good kitchen, easy to use, and facilities. The staff was nice. The location is very convenient, near Earl's court Tube station. I'll do it again

If you are in need of a cheap place to stay in the middle of London, this would be the one. It's clean and has a nice garden, wonderful amenities like a PS4 and board games and a cooked breakfast (though I didn't try it, honestly!) Definitely not your normal grunge hostel experience, definitely recommend.

The staffs are really nice, they explained everything when I arrived. The atmosphere is cosy and the playstation 4 with the huge tv at the common room is amazing!! I felt at home! The bathrooms are small, but the spacial bathroom just to girls is a really nice idea!
