If you book on time, prices might not be that expensive. It is nice to find a hostel with breakfast included- you just have to wake up early because they take away everything at 8.30 am. The atmosphere on the bar is great and the personnel was really nice and kind

I have stayed in a number of hostels recently in the area. This one is definitely the best, I wish you could stay for longer than the allocated time as I work in the area, as in more than 2 weeks not consecutively. The bar downstairs is great, staff friendly, rooms clean and quiet. What a contrast to St Christopher's...

This is a good place to choose if you want to be in the center of London.still you will need to usr public transport to get to all major attractions and sites but the bus stop and underground are close

Couldn't ask for a better hostel! Not only was the staff friendly but the burgers they sold were beyond excellent. The War museum was also really close along with the tube; a great location. Definitely going their again when I go back to London.

Great little pub hostel in the middle of Waterloo, hard to complain at the 12 bed dorm price. Triple decker bunk beds leave little room for sitting in bed, but theres a great atmosphere in the pub downstairs. They serve some excellent burgers and a fine coffee. Would definitely go back.

Very service minded staff. You can taste the beer before you buy it, one of the bartenders know a lot about beer. Apparantly they will feed you any time of night (one of the guys told me that you can always get a pizza). AND there's free breakfast with light & dark toast (and a toaster), 3 types of cereal,...

I stayed here for 2 weeks while I was working in London, which I know is not usual for a hostel. The staff were friendly and accommodating but there were a few things I noticed that could do with improving. One of the showers was out of order the entire time I was there and some of the windows in...

Our stay at this hostel was really enjoyable, although my group was only there for one night. The only thing I was a bit frustrated with was that the wifi was less than stellar sometimes. Other than that, great hostel with awesome food!

My friends and I absolutely loved PubLove! It is perfectly located within walking distance of most of the major sites in London and close to various Tube stations for visiting sites a bit farther away. The staff is also incredible! They are so helpful and willing to store bags, give drink suggestions at the pub, or just chat. I highly...
