The bed and shared toilets are clean. Worth the price. Just the underground station is a bit far for me (+-600m), especially with a big luggage, but not a big deal.

Stayed 6 nights in December, 2018
Everything was splendid ”
The Hostel is not only beautiful but also funcional to so many needs! There are even double bunk beds for couples. The showers are tiny but the was is hot and powerful! The pub downstairs is a really good addition to just chill or talk to people. My only bad comment is that the room in the attic is freezing and also no lift there. :( But all in all I would definetly stay there again.
Reviewed December 12, 2018
Dear Vanessa! Thank you for your amazing feedback. As for female bed dorm in the attic, we are working on the solution already (re-do sealing of windows or adding additional curtains, we are in the middle of trial and error for those and other ideas). Unfortunately there is no option in our building to have a lift that goes to the third floor. Hence our building is over hundred years old (it is stunning though!) we are not allowed to drill in walls so any changes of this kind are out of our reach. You can always book a bed in one of our smaller female dorms which are situated on other floors. We hope to see you again soon! Take care! Kind regards, Lina Reception Team

STAFF ALWAYS MISERABLE”
I have been coming to this hostel for the past 5 years due to the work location. This time around i dont seem to find the staff friendly. You ask them a question no smile, they seem fed up and tired. One thing that i found unprofessional was that staff amoungst themselves giving massages to each each other at reception???? The only one person that was helpful was the Manager Tom. He was amazing. just dissapoints. The hotel itself doesnt, the standard hasnt dropped at all. The staff need more training. Seems like they are doing a favor on us, whereas we are the ones increasing the business....

Best Hostel. Would highly recommend”
This hostel ticked all the boxes. They were cleaned every day to a high standard both in the bedrooms and the bathrooms. I stayed in a 28 room dorm & a 12 room dorm and I never felt cramped and all the beds have a privacy curtain a personal locker for your valuables. There are plenty of facilities on all floors so you never have to wait for a bathroom. The bar downstairs is really good with happy hour everyday. The staff were also great. The only downside is that when i was staying there they didn't have a cook so the kitchen wasn't open, however the area has plenty of options to purchase cheap food. And the lift was broken but it was being fixed when i left

Hello Ashleigh. Thanks for spending time for such a usefull rewiev for our future guests. In regards the kitchen, we provide a self catering kitchen for the guest and we can prepare inexpensive pre-ordered meals and dinners for big groups. At the morning we serve breakfast. It is all that you can eat for £4,5 only. Thanks Ashleigh, we hope to see you back again very soon!

Nice location and Good stay!”
Overall it's very good :) I stayed at the top floor and slept well every night. The girls shared with the home were good, always kept silence. The breakfast is nice, you can have bread, fruit, ham&cheese, muffin, coffee... and you only need to pay 4.5 pounds. Very helpful and warm stuffs. Places are clean and they always clean up the washroom. I think it's worthy with the price, cheap, warm house, nice breakfast and close to many attractions.

It was run down ”
The exterior of the building looked good and well-kept but the room I stayed in was in the attic and the whole experience was rather affected by it. It felt like the room in general, the lockers and bed were dusty and dirty. The toilets were clean though and the location of the hostel was rather central. The underground was only about 10 mins walk away.

The hostel itself is nothing special, but it checks all the boxes for a hostel which travellers require. It is clean, it is comfortable, it is well built, the staff is great and helpful and it is pretty well situated with a few minutes walk to the nearest underground station. All in all, it is a complete package for a low to semi budget treveller.

Very beautiful building and it’s close to Swiss cottage underground! I’m staying in a mixed dormitory with double bed and I have my own privacy because there is a curtain surrounding the bed. The bedroom and bathroom is quite clean but no towel and lock (locker provided) provided please bring your own. Nice staying experience will definitely come back again!

The only that you need is to put your own padlock to lock it. The towels are £1,5 each for rent for all the period of your stay. Have a nice trip. We hope to see you back soon!

Last minute late night booking.”
I usually use airbnb these days as it's easier to find somewhere that can accommodate my van/truck with parking than hotels which might have height restrictions etc. I stayed at Palmers Lodge years ago and had a good experience so decided to try again as I wasn't too confident getting somewhere on airbnb as it was late at night. The price was high for a private double room, but I knew the facilities were good and there would be parking for my van. Had a nice stay and everything was clean and the staff were super friendly and accommodating :)

Was refused to stay and banned at the Palmers Lodge Swiss Cottage by two very rude male staff. Because of a serious incident I had reported previously which has not been resolved, and unable to get hold of the manager then and now. Despite me calling twice this week and the staff knowing It was an urgent matter. As they have my contact details I would not recommend a visit

Hi Josephine, you were banned after making blatantly false accusations about staff member misconduct, you were told at the time of your last stay that you were banned for all of our Hostels. Every property in London would do well to blacklist you. Tom, Hostel Manager

The breakfast is value for money. The bunk bed is comfortable and there is sufficient storage area to keep the stuff. The toilet can be busy at certain part of the day so it's best to go early if wanted to avoid crowd. It's within short walking distant to nearest tube station. Supermarkets and small eateries can be found near to the tube station.
