Liked: this is my 3rd time to stay at this hostel and i really like it here with its atmosphere and clean bathrooms, location etc.

Disliked: i do like this hostel but this time the room that i was put in was very small for 8people and there was no light/plug socket for each bed. only 2 sockets for 8 people - not enough as we are all traveling w/digital camera, iPhone, iPad etc!

Liked: Pretty good location, bar connected to the hostel.

Disliked: We visited during a pretty warm weekend, but even at night our 10-bed dorm room was like a SAUNA. So hot! And the super annoying thing was that the windows wouldn't open any more than a couple of inches. So even at night when it was nice and cool outside, the room was still twenty degrees warmer. Kind of miserable.

Liked: Wonderful staff! Esti,Jojo, Luca and Sylvia were all amazing at the bar and promoted a safe personable and wild couple of experiences. Alicia from the desk was wonderful as well, having fun with us on the patio. Also fantastic gents who run the patio bar on Thursday. Great fun all around. Ask Esti to show you her beer box trick!

Disliked: The bathroom on the top floor was a little smelly sometimes but that's just because everyone uses it.

Liked: Free wifi. Like the bar setup with the hostel and the deals they have for food are decent.

Disliked: Had a bunch of young German teenage schoolkids in the hostel, acting immature running around the halls, but this was probably just a one time thing.

Liked: The staff is helpfull, location is great, the underground is really near!

Disliked: I don't really like to share the bathroom with the whole hostel... They are never really clean... In one of the showers in the 1º floor ladies room the water is not going down properly... Disgusting... The showers get too hot. And they say the breakfast is serves from 8 to 10am! Pay attention because they really mean it!!!! One of the days I went to have my breakfast and I made sure to get there vedores 10am thinking once inside I could have it but no!! I went to take a table and waited my roomate to serve herself and they room away all the food!! I went to talk to the woman in the bar and told her I was there before 10am and she just said the breakfast is only served till 10am! They didn't even told they were taking away the food so that they would give anyone a chance to serve yourself!! Other than that, it was fine!

Liked: Extreemly helpful staff and location was great, close to the markets and only a couple of tube stops away from the centre. Good fun in the pub downstairs and cheap drinks and meals.

Disliked: The only dislike i can say is that the stairs are a killer.

Liked: Even though it's bigger than a lot of hostels, the individual properties each gave it an unique atmosphere. The cinema was top notch. Having a nearby bar gave a place for people - even those not in the hostel - to mingle. Great bar specials too.

Disliked: Paying for lockers was a bit rough, but still safe at least. Some bathrooms stank.

09 April 2012 Petra would recommend this property

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 :)
