Amazon staff who went above and beyond for me!! My only complaint was there was a young sports team of some sort ( teenage males) that converged in the hallway and disrupted the atmosphere. I will pay more attention to adults only hostels from now on. Gorgeous building and area. I love Swiss cottage.

Staff has bad attitude but would go again
the breakfast lady is probably the worst person I have come across in my life. One woman behind the desk was incredibly difficult and uncompromising as well. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were related. Otherwise a great place to meet people. Fun stay but don’t expect 10/10 conditions, service. I think turnover is quite frequent, so I’ll go back here next time and hopefully see some kinder staff members. You get what you get for the price. Biggest advantage is how close it is to the underground.

Book this hostel - no regrets!
Staff was extremely friendly, bed, bathrooms, and common rooms were clean. Spent extra time in the bar because of the awesome bar staff (especially Lina - great to talk to!). Will be coming back next trip I take to London.

It did it’s job as you have all the privacy you need with the drapes and have plenty of space to yourself even in a big shared room.

By far the best looking hostel I’ve stayed in, the facilities were amazing and the staff were so friendly. Would definitely stay again especially as the location makes it so easy to go anywhere in London.
