Ami Buczek

12 June 2009 Ami would recommend this property

Liked: The shared bed rooms were the best I've seen so far, they had drapes so you were completely alone with no one able to view you. Lights inside your bed area so you could still read while the lights were off and easy walk to Swiss Cottage station on the gray line.

Disliked: Ami left no negative feedback.

Customer review

08 June 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The location was great - removed enough from London to be relaxing but close enough to have easy access to the city and Finchey Road, where you could do all the shopping you'd need to get by. Breakfast was great - hot croissants, fruit, cereal, and toast every morning. There were lots of little nooks and crannies in the hostel where you could lounge around. Probably the best thing about Palmer's Lodge though was the FREE INTERNET, reservable in 30 minute blocks.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

08 June 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Not a bad place to stay in for one or two night. The location is okay, its a block away from the underground station. My bed was clean, but the room smelled like men sweat, and my female friend's room smelled like shampoo, which is pretty much expected. Free Wifi, so thats a plus. Staff were helpful and friendly.
