Jillian Spicer thinks…

"Good location, friendly staff, good food and drink deals at a few pubs. Close to the tubes and bus lines. Beds were decent, had a good nights sleep but you need ear plugs or the noise of the pub and…"

Liked: free breakfast and they had an easy way of outchecking

Disliked: the noise of the people that were from the bar under us that stood down on the street for our room. since the windows were not very isolating we almost coujld hear their conversations. and the internet of the hostel was really slow.

Liked: Friendly and helpful staff, good location just 5 minute walk from London Bridge Station and easy access to/from Liverpool Station, which makes travel to Stansted Airport easy (and as far as I could see, also from Heathrow and Gatwick (don't know about Luton))

Disliked: There's no cooking facilities, just a microwave owen... If you're a traveller on a budget, that might be something to consider (although you can get a decent meal from one of the many small cafés/restaurants for 3-4£ so not a big problem) Lot of noise from the downstairs pub.

Liked: Location was great, clean and not too noisy.

Disliked: Unfortunately we shared room with people that had to get up in the middle of the night, so we did not get a full nights sleep during our stay, but that is just bad luck

Liked: Everything. I arrived at 3am in the morning and the receptionist was really helpful at getting me checked in. The luggage lockers were cheap, and I could use them even though I'd only stayed there one night (I've been denied elsewhere because of this), The bed was quite comfortable, which I desperately needed after 21 hours of flying.

Disliked: Nothing. Wasn't there long enough to truly find out what the atmosphere was like.

Liked: I really liked that the hostel is open 24 hours a day as well as the reception was. This was extremly helpful to us at our arrival, because our flight was about 3 hours delayed and so we arrived at about 11 pm.

Disliked: It was a bit noisy at night, because of the people sitting outside at the pub downstairs. But only until 2 am. ;)

Liked: Only 3 bathrooms? No way! Not enough absolutely.

Disliked: The temperature of the hot water in the bathroom cannot change how strong it is. And this is the warming to the fresh comers: the water is too cold when first turn it on. So it is better to wait for a minute until the water has turned hot.

Liked: Staff was very willing, the price was good.

Disliked: Some mates were not considerate, but this is not the fault of the property. The heating did not work from 06/03 to 07/03, therefore was cold.

Liked: St. Christopher's was a wonderful experience. the staff was eager to help with recommendations. the pub downstairs was fun and had great drink specials. we got upgraded to a better room (by mistake...but we certainly didn't complain) but the price stayed the same. for two girls traveling alone we felt completely safe and comfortable. the location was perfect, plenty of good places to eat. if you like greek food make sure you go across the street to tas. it was beyond amazing and very inexpensive

Disliked: the bathrooms weren't that nice...

Liked: friendly staff, lockable cage under bed, rentable lockers available, quiet. I switched to the all-female "Oasis" hostel option, and it was AMAZING; I would absolutely reccomend it to any female traveller!! (safer, quieter, nicer, cleaner, FAR more comfortable).

Disliked: It's possible to steal things out of cage lockers beneath beds (which are your only storage options in the room); I contracted bed bugs
