“London Calling!”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Number 8 is one of those hostels that has an appeal you can't quite explain.I ended up there because it's ridiculously cheap and it's near lots of public transport. From the start you are on to a good thing. On the surface it's just a another hostel, there's a pub at the bottom, its big and dark, the wooden stairs are uneven and the kitchen is full of folk cooking budget brand concoctions. However the atmosphere is so friendly and there is an instant feeling of community, People philosophize over their pint glasses, everyone has a yarn to spin and the staff are part of the family.

Room Tip: As in all hostels the less people in the room the better!

Stay at this hostel anytime I am in London. Great staff and lots of fun times. Always finding ways to upgrade everything. I keep coming back just to see what they've done.Most of the things people complain about are caused by guests who don't clean up after themselves just like in most hostels. Love you guys.

People you met are very nice but the hostel is really dirty ! The shower and the toilets weren't cleaned every day, like they say. The kitchen is also really dirty, I don't understand how people can live like that !
The location is good, you can take the tube 5 mins from the hostel and you have a lot of buses to go to the centre.
For the price you pay, you can't expect for a beautiful place but the hygiene isn't good. And for me it's the most important thing, also when you go for holidays.

The #8 is a great place to stay for the budget traveller. The beds are comfortable and they have a completely stocked kitchen. It is very friendly and the staff are very helpful with details of the city. I highly recommend this hostel. I have stayed in about 30 different hostels in the last 2 years and this is one of the better ones.

Stayed there for quite long period - cheapest way to live in London, rent flats or rooms is so expensive over there. Nr 8 have cheapest rates plus big kitchen and fridge room, so can safe a lot just by cooking in. Breakfast is included. Very friendly staff and owners:)
I liked as well that around hostel is so many food shops, so even at night time is possible to get something to eat.
Rooms are nice and clean. Would stay again for sure;)
