Stayed at Baggies for four nights while on our European Vacation. The hostile was very secure, clean, and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The hostel is located a 3 minute walk away from the tube, which made it easy to explore all of the sights of central London. It was also within a 10 minute walk of a...

As an 'overage backpacker', I had only stayed in very few hostels. If you like cooking your own meals or watch people cooking, you would enjoy the Baggies´ life as this hostel has a very well-equipped kitchen filled with food lovers. I watched a young gentleman from Sicily and one from Jamaica and a young lady I did not ask...

I stayed there for 2 nights in November as I assisted to a concert in O2 Academy Islington that is few minutes from the hostel. It is a correct place but not a normal hostel since most of the guests are living there instead of staying for few days. Some common places where a little bit dirty, so was the...

Nice hostel, good vibes, cheap! This place is also so used for people who work here in London. I stayed over for a gig - they put me in a room with 4 builders. One of them put his alarm on Snooze - at 6-7 in the morning - AN HOUR before they got up. Then they were all walking...

Location is more than great, underground is close and if you like to walk "must see in London" is walking distance. (London Bridge 25 min walk) Rooms are clean and staff is great. Excellent choice for a place to stay in London.

The hostel itself is great, quite clean and new, the building looks nice, and very well equipped (the kitchens are just fantastic!)! However the triple bunk bed are maybe the worst thing I've ever slept in. This is seriously cramped, uncomfortable and overall it feels like you are a caged hen. I was in a 6 beds dorm partitioned by...

For this being my first real hostel experience, I absolutely loved it. They booked me last minute, and the environment is friendly, comfortable, and welcoming. Definitely coming back and looking forward to it. The available kitchen is a great way to save money and everyone shares space and cleans up after themselves.

I stayed 4 nights in this hostel. Welcoming people. Clean bathroom, kitchen and living room. Quiet rooms. Low price. Close to the Angel tube station. I recommend this hostel. I know where to stay next time I come in London.

I was traveling alone in London for 3 days and decided to stay here due to the excellent reviews. Best choice, atmosphere is friendly and very clean. I was greeted by Sam, who walked me through the check in process, very simple and straightforward. The beds were the most comfortable, plenty of room for storage, laundry on-site, roomy kitchen and...
