“Brilliant experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

I arrived here with three other friends about a week ago. I'd never stayed at a hostel and I was hesitant about what it would be like as the media has tarnished my image of a what a hostel is like. I couldn't have been more wrong! I would advise anyone staying in London to stay in this hostel, where to even begin! The price is so reasonable for how brilliant and pleasant this place is! It is right across from the London Underground ensuring that you can get anywhere in London whenever you like! And also the Westfield is just around the corner!! Getting to the hostel itself, it was so clean and just impeccable....the food is fantastic and hostel stayers are even granted 25% off all food and drinks offers! There is always such a friendly upbeat atmosphere and it's such a pleasure to stay in a place so fun and relaxed! Finally the staff!! They made the stay for me....Gus, Taylor, Emma and Danielle! I can not praise ye enough....ye were fantastic! I didn't get to know the rest of the staff as much but I could definitely see that ye were all the same! So friendly, accommodating and really just the nicest bunch! I would completely advise staying here to everyone! If anything the staff will make the trip along with all the other fantastic elements! I can't give this place enough credit and hope to come back again soon!

My stay at St Christopher's Inn was a living nightmare. There is no reception but a bar with drunken teenagers. The 8 beds room is extremely small and dirty. I found bread pieces on my sheets! But the worse is definitely the toilets.... There was vomit all over the place. It was impossible to sleep at night as the teenagers were drinking and screaming all night long at the bar downstairs. So please, DO NOT GO TO THIS HOSTEL!

We stayed here for a few weeks while looking for a house/Jobs and its the best hostel we have stayed in through out Europe. Its clean, showers are decent, mattresses are comfy, theres good sized cages under the beds to lock ur whole backpack and not have to worry about your stuff and you get free breakfast!!! as well as good deals in the belushis bar below. Close as to heaps of shops and tube and All the staff were super friendly and helpful would recommend to all :)

It was the cheapest place to stay for 1 night. We expected something worse, but it was quite good. Great location, it´s in zone 2, juste in front of a metro station. Lots of supermarkets, fast foods around and a nice park. Rooms are small, but we did?t plan to dance in it, so it´s fine. The wifi works good, the stuff is friendly, you can leave your luggage for any time you want (you can leave it in the chill out room or you can pay 1-2 pounds and lock it if you have smthing precious in it). When you have no money and just need to sleep somewhere for 1 night - it´s a good choise, cause its location is good enough.

I am world traveller and this was the worst hostel I have ever stayed at. The staff was ridiculous rude!!! They didnt knock before entering the rooms, didnt do little favors as changing some bills to coins so I could use their locker. They were totally inflexible! I even asked to talk to the manager and she couldnt do anything, cuz we were booked for 6 days there in 2 different rooms and we couldnt stay in the same room, only because there were probably too lazy to change the reservations. Therefore we had to leave the room at 10am and only get the other room at 2pm, which is terrible. Other hostels dont have problems like that. Also the wifi was very bad! And not to mention that the staff at Belushis bar was also really rude! They kicked us out because they were closing, but without giving a short notice, cuz turning the lights on and guessing that everyone would understand that the bar is closing in 15 min, I am sorry but that goes against the ideals of what a hostel stands for, which is that you host people for all over the world and thinking that the same rules applies in every country is very stupid. I honestly dont believe how can they hire such impolite with non intercultural awareness.

I stayed here after a shocking stay at another backpackers in London and it was a welcome relief. It was comfortable, cheap and had a nice bar and complimentary breakfast which were excellent bonuses. I forgot to get a towel the night before however and the bathrooms were a little bit dirty, but you get what you pay for :). The only let down was that the room was stiflingly hot and under ventilated. The staff were friendly and welcoming and I would tell other people to stay here for sure. It's a little out of the way but right over the road from a tube station and is easy to find.
