If you're looking for a hostel near London, this is not the place for you. It is not centrally located and takes about 30 mins to get to the center of London by train. If you're looking for a fun environment to meet other young travelers this is not the place for you as the majority of the people that... More

This was the first hostel I've ever stayed at. I stayed there for 3 nights and it was OK. + Big kitchen + Nice location, everything necessary nearby. But if you're more a nightclub person and want to experience more central London stuff, then this is not the place for you. + Pool table, lots of movies, free breakfast

It's good hostel to stay there until 2 days. The kitchen is too small and there's no enough space for everybody. The bedrooms are warm and the staff did not clean the bedrooms. You have to do the dishes.The location is good near subways and bus parade.

London backpackers Hostel is a great value for money! Despite being located quite a distance from central London, the hostel is situated directly outside Hendon Central station so it is really quite convenient. Staff at the reception were really friendly and helpful. Instructions were explained in detail and they were more than willing to answer any questions. Opted to stay... More

The place is very far from everything, $$ to get there and back from everywhere and anywhere. The staff was okay not very helpful, it was semi clean bathrooms were not great, social scene was a little different. I personally would never stay here again but it was cheap.

This hostel had some nice features I did not expect. All of the rooms have free lockers (you would have to bring your own lock), outlets in each bed, and curtains on each bed so you can pull them closed and be in darkness while you sleep. It is out of town but right across the street from the subway... More
