Liked: Very clean. Good character in dining area but lacked atmosphere... maybe cause it was quiet? Loved the free continental breakfast.

Disliked: Noisy lift machine equipment and hand dryer in communal bathroom meant we kept getting woken through the night (room 300). Recommend asking for room away from lift area. Would be good if hostel put paper towels in bathrooms so people don't get woken up.

Liked: The communal areas were cool but that's about it sadly.

Disliked: It was over priced, noisy (had to sleep with eat plugs, which they sell by the door as you walk in, never a good sign), we could hear the lift going up & down all night long. There was a window above the door letting loads of light in & the breakfast was terrible.

The property's response is...

Liked: Its effecient. Clean, proper, no nudes in the hallway, no drug addicts on the stairs or pimps holding up posters of their girls, no police calls or ambulances crashing into bins, no drag queens telling their stories or orphan kids looking for a break, no pineapple girls or wild chicken dancing around cats, no isolated areas for the insane, no butter on toast, no taoist monks, no birth control in toilets or large mouse holes, no gnomes in the garden staging a protest at inadequate working conditions, no tigers in the grass watching 3d tv. no piles of stones with flags in them, no prehistoric monument to dinosaurs, no big plastic breast convention, no doodles of the virgin mary in a lingerie in hollywood boulavard with jesus on a baby leash, in the washrooms, no crimes - its a great hostel and if your a flawless human being youll fit in here incredibly.

Disliked: As i slept a kangarro came in, fell over my bed pissed drunk saying " save Australia" "the whites are normal and are making the world normal" it was a scot in a costume. the corridor gets narrow and you get stuck. im still there. two days now. the kitchen is in a hoebox and the bread is on the roof. santa claus stays here and the elves. they live in 30 bed dorm and every night, they are up talking in finnish. my finnish friends tell me they have link with the mafia. anytime you meet an elf on the stairs he tries to sell you weed.

Liked: Great location - short walk from tube station and a regular bus stops right outside. Beds were comfortable if basic. Always hot water and good pressure in the showers. Secure baggage areas, access to laundry facilities, great wifi (only on ground floor though) and nice lounge area. Breakfast didn't have a lot of variety, but there was as much toast and cereal and tea and coffee as you could possibly want. Sink and mirror in the dorm room was handy.

Disliked: Kitchen was pretty minimal - another hot plate and a few more utensils would make it a bit more useful. Also, a small shelf in the shower cubicle would be good, just somewhere to store things that can't be hung up (like room key cards).

Liked: This is an excellent, excellent hostel. I've stayed at a few hostels in London and this is by far the best one. It's not the cheapest but totally worth it if you can afford to pay a few extra pounds per night! I loved the big, free and easy to use lockers in the room, the many computers that you could use for free, the free wifi that worked even in my room, how inexpensive and easy it was to print, the fact that this hostel has a washing machine, the sink in the room, the lovely staff and most of all how extremely clean it was (this is certainly rare in London hostels).

Disliked: Nothing at all.

Liked: Both the beds and toilet very clean, i live in 4/F the temp is good. 2 independent toilets suits for all roommates, you have to bring your own lock if you want to use lockers in room but thats fine. quite close to Tube station about 5 mins walk, theres local markets near the station too. The food in the bar is lovely and the price is reasonable.

Disliked: there are quite a lot female roommates in my room as i didn't expect, sometimes roommates ate and drunk inside, i think the staff should do some checking. overall no big problems for me.

Liked: Friendly, informal, great facilities for socialising, relaxing and studying. The bar is great fun with a pool table and adjoining outside deck, with good WiFi throughout the building and computers in various areas. The beds are comfortable, staff are excellent and have met many cool people here, this is a very enjoyable place to stay in and great value of course. The area is very nice with many shops open late, with the tube a five minute walk after relaxing in the attractive grounds which are beautifully kept within the secure gated surroundings. Highly recommended indeed.

Disliked: Peter left no negative feedback.

02 September 2012 John would recommend this property

Liked: It had everything needed for a visit to London; comfortable room and beds, clean, showers, wifi, food and drink (including breakfast in the price) and simple control of access to location and facilities. I wanted a room for 4 as a base to attend the para olympics. I could not believe how straightforward it could be having necer stayed in a hostel before. Looking for an excuse to go to London again, so I can go back and it opens up a whole new world of ways to visit lots of places. I had previously only stayed in hotels, which may have en-suit bathroom but non of the flexibility of Palmers Lodge. It was even within walking distance of a tube station.

Disliked: I am 55 and I'd should have heard of this place before!
