We were in London for my graduation and decided to book St. James Backpackers as the photos were impressive and it was a great location close to tube stations, and the price was also very good. Myself, partner and mum stayed here for 1 night (Friday night) and we were not disappointed, the staff were very helpful at all times, the venue was clean, accommodating, the back garden was lovely as the weather was beautiful. The breakfast was pleasant, If you are looking for a nice accommodating friendly venue to stay in then look no further, you have found the place, if you are looking to stay in a 5* venue then this is not for you, but If you are happy to mix with others, laugh and enjoy conversation, then I could not think of a better place to stay. The rooms although small, are perfect for resting your head, they are bunk style beds but this was no problem for us, and the toilet and shower facilities were close and clean. As a Fellow of the Institute of Travel and Tourism, and a Member of the Institute of Hospitality, I would fully recommend this venue for anyone looking for a friendly comfortable stay that is down to earth and no frills.
