I do not mind the location of the place nor do I mind if the shower is in the corner in the room. The worst things were there was absolutely NO WATER from the shower and the tap. The staff was kind enough to give us another room that has water, but the water was boiling hot, unsuitable for shower.... More

I stayed in this hostel for 2 nights. I reached there in the midnight and the hostel entrance was packed with youngsters which I assumed were staying there as well. The lady staff I dealt with was quite helpful but she was a little slow, hence I had to wait long to check in and to ask questions. They should... More

We had used the hostel as budget travellers to go to a concert at Wembley. The room was filthy with flies everywhere and smelt of urine. There was no bin in either the room or the bathroom so it was impossible to dispose of sanitary products. There was no lock on the bathroom or plug in the sink. The toilet... More

This hostel was the worst place I have ever stayed in. The staff were exceptionally rude and the hostel is about 30-40 minutes out of the centre of London making it very inconvenient to travel around. The rooms were small and dirty, no sheets apart from a doona and lumpy pillow. Steer well clear of this place, it is disgusting.... More

Rooms are dirty, the facilities are subpar. The shower is literally a cabinet in the corner of the room, offering no possibility for some privacy when drying yourself and changing. Even with this price, I expect more. Moreover, some of the staff needs to seriously work on their people skills. I had an issue with the internet and was met... More

There are two good things I can say about this hostel - it's cheap and it's in the 2nd zone, so you don't have to pay much for the tickets to get to the city center. The rest... well... I would rather forget about that... When I arrived to the hostel it was quite late - 9pm. There was problem... More

The only positive is location in 2nd zone so you don't waste much time to get to the center and you can save some money on tickets. Everywhere inside is a dirt. Strange people are working there and also staying as guests.

I booked this hostel online and it was written that breakfast was included. As soon as I got there for the check in, apart from making me wait for ages, I have been told breakfast was not included in the end as i did not book from their website. The staff was rude and not helpful. ThE corridor was full... More

Will keep this brief as I don't wish to waste too much time on this.. But I need to warn others contemplating using this dump for a night out (or longer) in London. Went there for a friend's birthday and wanted to keep my expenses low, so my girlfriend booked a room at Hostel 639 for 6 of us in... More
