Liked: Awesome value for the money. Free wi-fi, super safe, awesome facilities and free stuff (including breakfast). Was surrounded by a lot of cool pubs and cheap food places.

Disliked: A good 8-10 minute walk from the tube station, was a pain with my carry bag when I was rushing to get somewhere on time.

Liked: The location is great: walking distance to Tower and London Bridge, Tate Museum and 3 min from Borough Market, good connections to city center and Excell exhibition center. Free continental breakfast, Belushi's bar downstairs with today's specials for people staying in the hostel for only 3.95 pounds and a shop across the street working till late are really convenient, you do not have to think about food at all.Bed linen, dorms and bathrooms were clean and nice. Hot water in the showers all day long.

Disliked: Staff are friendly, but at moments seem a bit distracted and overwhelmed with all the duties as the people staying in the hostel are mostly pretty selfish and rude in their attempt to party and have fun, so the staff have to deal with some situations that are not so nice and convenient. Maybe it would be better that each St. Christopher in Borough Street has its own reception, at least for the usual check-in/out times. Maybe then would some of small issues be more promptly solved: people not checked out and still having their stuff on your bed, informing me in the morning at 08:30 a.m. that I should change to another room till 10:00 a.m., while I have a meeting at 09:00, no space in luggage room so I have to pay for the lockers..The toilets were not so clean and nice as rest of the hostel, but that is more due to people that are staying in the hostel, because they were really cleaned on the regular basis.Noise from the traffic, bar and other people in hostels was solved with free ear-plugs :)Don't forget the pad-lock, as they do not sell it, but if you do, there is a shop round the corner to buy it :)

Liked: I've stayed her numerous times on my travels and can recommend it each time. I stayed in the massive dorm - 22 bed this time and it was fine. Maybe could do with a couple more showers but thats just nit picking. Lockers under the bed are good.

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: Perfect location, just minutes off the vibrant City and close to great outdoor places. Nice touch was the lunge / cinema room as well as the Belushi's accessible from the hostel. Entirely satisfied.

Disliked: Never made it for breakfast (maybe it should be served till 11 am?). The maze of corridors, tiny steps up and down to get to the room.
