A Mansion behind the hustle of the Finchley Road”
Considering the volume of clients Palmers Lodge is very clean and tidy. The facilities are cleaned regularly and there are sufficient rubbish bins around the mansion. Just loved sitting in the garden area chatting with inmates from around the world over a drink.

Misleading, noisy”
Based on our booking, we had the impression we were in a room on our own. Later, reading more details, we realized that we were sharing a room with 16 others. Our mistake. But when we arrived, the music playing in the lobby (full of expletives) was loud enough that we had to speak over it. Loud music often seemed to be playing in the lobby. At night, loud talking from in and around the lobby kept us awake, mostly coming through our window from in front of the building (where the smokers gather) until about 4:30am. No one from the lobby seemed to encourage quiet respect for their sleeping guests. A good location and a beautiful building, but not the restful night we were looking for.

Good”
facilities and the appearance are great. I stayed in the 3rd floor. the bed was small and was really near to the ceiling. I can't sit properly. No air conditioner or fan, very few windows, air ventilation is a bit poor. weird smell was always around the room bathroom was small It might be better if I stayed in other lower floors

Weather recommend or not”
I like this hostel. Specially stuffs! But nowadays, this hostel accepted students group. This is very annoying.... We cannot relax at hostel and always noisy. We don't have a space if students are here. So I don't want to recommend this hostel To adult.

Chance of bumping your head if you get a bunk in t”
For this price of a bunk bed in London, you have to be prepared to accept certain inconveniences. Firstly, the location is not bad at all, just 5 mins from Swiss Cottage underground. The area seemed rather residential and not very touristy. The house itself looks very impressive and grand. Depending on where your bunk bed / room is assigned, it can be quite a labyrinth to get there, including passing through shower rooms / toilets. If your bunk bed is in the attic with low beams, be prepared to get your head bumped no matter how careful you are. It is really quite a feat to manoeuvre your way in and out as, besides the low beams, there are also odd columns to avoid. I now realised none of the photos shown were photos from the attic. I scouted around and there seemed to be a lack of power plugs in general (for charging of your devices) but I was lucky to find a very well-hidden extension cord behind my bunk bed and hence, I had 'exclusive' usage of it. Toilets / shower rooms seemed plentiful. The bunk bed itself offers great privacy (curtains) and is very comfortable.

First time staying in a hostel!”
We were very apprehensive booking a hostel as we re in our 40s and had worries it would be noisy and a bit grubby. We were so impressed. It's a beautiful building which is kept spotlessly clean, the young staff are friendly and helpful and it has everything you need. We loved how close it was to the jubilee line and how quiet it was at night. Would happily recommend and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Hard to find, but good for one night”
Took me 30 minutes of walking to find at 1am, but okay room with clean-ish bathroom, the 20 something person dorm gladly doesn't smell funny or sound like thunder, but given the hill of walk to reach, I'd only stay for layovers.
