We booked a double room in this hostel after looking at the pictures in bookings. This is not the fancy hostel we were expecting, it is just as any other hostel in London. The bathrooms could definitely benefit from some maintenance. In the bathrooms/toilet it was freezing. The

Thank you for choosing to stay at the Badger. I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay with us. The room you stayed in had a shower, a sink, a large wardrobe/chest of drawers combo to put your clothes in, a safe, a tv, a shelf above the bed, plus storage under the bed for suitcases - these things do take up a bit of space, but we figured guests would like those facilities in the room. We would have been more than happy to have provided you with a chair if you had asked. Safe onward travels from all of us here :)

Stayed for LFCC in July, was looking for a good quality budget hotel/hostel that was close to the venue. Chose the Barmy Badger, not just because of the cost, but also because there was a choice of a room with my own shower. If you have the choice of room 6 take it. Also

Honestly, weather has become so unpredictable that even the forecasts aren't 100% sure anymore. Last year I was in London in June and in a week it went from Sunny to rainy everyday. It's part of the charm. As far as the hostel goes, there's conditioning in every room if I remember rightly, but if you need anything more specific, I'd suggest getting in touch directly with them, The stuff is super frindly and ready to help. Just send them an email and they'll help with all your concerns.

"Room 6 has it's own shower"
"The second floor doesn't have a bathroom, so if you don't want to hear foot traffic heading to the W.C., get those rooms."
"Choose higher floor dorms."
"Room 9 (private room, 2 bunk beds) was up a flight of stairs, had a balcony, and faced the lovely street!"
"If you don't like the concept of a hostel, they do have individual rooms."
