I did not enjoy this hostel at all. Below are my reasons: When we arrived their eftpos machine wasn't working. It was night and none of us had enough cash to cover the costs of three nights stay. The man at the front was going to make us walk ages away to an ATM (other staff members expressed alarm that...

Clean friendly reception. Great location tickly to the Southbank and the Globe Theatre. Very spacious lounge and bar. Staff were constantly tidying up the area. Remember your earplugs and your eyeshades And then you have a good stay!

Taking up my pen to review this frightful place, it is difficult to know where to begin. I decided to stay here for a two-week internship in central London, and was drawn by its affordability and relatively central location. Everything else about it turned out to be vile. The deco has clearly not been updated since the 1960s, with the...

I had the advantage of getting a top bunk, making getting into and out of bed much easier. Those who weren't so lucky couldn't even sit up straight in their beds. Though there are reading lights and outlets on each bed, some of the outlets don't work and my light flickered when I tried to read. (Also, the panel containing...

'definately a lot cleaner'?? 'way better then last time?'

My girlfriend and I stayed at JLBH after 3 terrible nights at another hostel. We stayed for two nights in a 9 bedroom dorm. There were people from all over the world staying there for different reasons (holiday, work, seeing friends, relocating, etc.) The owner Brad was very accommodating and the rooms were such a great price per night!

I recently stayed at Journeys London Bridge hostel and having previously stayed at JLBH only a few months back it would seem things are starting to improve. The new manager Brad displayed great customer service skills and he also seems to have hit the ground running as the place was definitely a lot cleaner! with a toilet cleaning schedule up...

The staff members were kinda creepy and made awkward comments to me and my friend about each other. But the location was alright, the accomadations were fine, though showers were small and awkwardly set up. But the beds all had curtains, a light and seperate plug for each which was wonderful.

This is by far one of the worst hostels I have ever stayed in. The room I was in had 3 sets of bunks stacked 3 high and was SO small. There was barely enough room to fit everyones bag on the floor. To make things worse, each morning the cleaning woman would come in around 8am, turn all the...

“Request for dorm on the first floor if you have heavy luggage as there is no elevator in this hostel.”

“Choose one with windows that open (the stench can get overwhelming), with lockers that close (you never know who will steal what) and with doors that lock (useful for preventing drunken room mates from stumbling in at 5am - and of these there will be many)”
