We had a great time at this hostel. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, we felt safe and we were very close to the action in the city. Take advantage of the free earplugs if you can. The area is loud since you are right downtown. The only thing lacking was a communal space for hostel-stayers.

With close association from the near by award winning Walrus Bar and Hostel, one can see the close resemblance between the two hostels. The staff is shared or inherited from the Walrus and that speaks for itself. Being new the bedrooms and bathrooms are new and improved. The bedrooms feature themed names and ample space to move freely. I was honored to stay in the Underground Room, complete with a mural of the Underground, chairs and tables, fireplace (I'm not sure if it was functional), and bright red linens. This hostel is connected to a restaurant with good food at a discount rate. The location to central London is awesome and it is nearly across the street from the Lambeth Underground station (1station away from the Waterloo Underground and National Rail station.

This is a must stay indeed.

Room Tip: I'm not sure if the hostel has a kitchen. I checked in on a Sunday before Christmas and the restaurant was closed for preparations of changing the beer draft devises (huge plus for beer drinkers I suppose) so I spent some spare time that evening at the Walrus Bar/hostel also with discounted drinks due to close association with the a Horse. Note: there are no noise issues at the Horse. :)

Stayed in the Horse & Stables at the beginning of November with a friend. We were two girls and stayed in the biggest dorm (I think) which had about 16 beds but they weren't all taken. The rooms are warm and clean, maybe a bit noisy from the underground line running adjacent but this didn't really bother us. The best part was the location, it's just south if the river, right beside Lambeth North and Waterloos stations, the London Eye and near enough the Tate - will definitely stay here again!
