Stayed 2 nights in December 2019

Subpar stay”

The staff was very unfriendly upon my arrival, insisting that I had not paid and must pay again, even though I had paid online before arriving and showed her my online receipts of proof. The rooms also have these really annoying lights lining the floor which automatically turn on whenever the door is opened. This made for an interrupted sleep on the bottom bunk while people were coming in and out of the room at night. Good price though and fine for a quick stay before heading to the airport.

I work just around the corner and work shifts. Due to travel issues I couldn’t commute home one night and found this place.

Awesome price for an ok location and subpar room”

I stayed here one night from 11pm to 7am so it was bearable however I don’t know if I could have stayed longer. The rooms are hot and stuffy. You can’t sit up in your bunk as they are bunks of 3. Every time someone enters the room, the floor lights turn on which is a bit disruptive when you’re sleeping. Bed was ok and pretty comfortable. Small storage locker for valuables. No common area besides pub (which is ok). Washrooms have private shower stalls. Location is far from city centre but you can take a bus. Price is very cheap compared to rest of London.

From last month to this month I've stayed here 4 or 5 times. I like coming back here because of the clean bedding, (just wish curtains were on beds),the hospitality ( they're very nice with you sitting in the bar). And, the very courteous gentleman by the name of Paul (he works mid nights). He's very easy to talk to, kind, and makes me feel most welcomed. Thank you!

Brilliant hostel/Pub”

Great place to stay - we booked it on a chance as we needed cheap accommodation on a Monday night near to Brixton Academy - it's a short walk from a tube station but on lots of bus routes. The dorm itself was exceptionally clean and had all the essentials - USB plug sockets, modern lighting and design. I personally really liked the wall mounted baskets next to each bed - perfect for storing phone on charge, a bottle of water etc. The staff were all great, and the 10% off drinks 24/7 and 25% off brunch was actually fantastic - we ate all of our meals there and it was good quality home cooked food. Will stay here again for sure!

BED BUGS!!!”

There were bed bugs for the majority of my stay. The company said a would be dealt with soon! I waited more than week (I was scared to leave and take the bed bugs with me). I finally had leave after the finally straw. A bed bug came out of my shoe when I was at work. The facilities aren't that great either! No lights by the bed, no chill out lounge, the laundromat isn't easily accessible, and considering the price, the should be breakfast included. The best thing about The Crown is the wonderful staff that work. Who were helpful, and showed empathy towards me throughout my stay. In addition, the food at the pub is delicious

Nice enough place”

Stayed here over New Years (might be why it wasn’t the best) Staff were lovely and helpful, although other people staying there were kind of disgusting and the poor cleaning staff had quite the task every morning. The shower drainage was terrible so you ended up wading in a puddle which was kinda gross, but if you time your shower around 10 the cleaner has just been so at least the puddle is just yours. Rooms were kinda small so I’d only recommend staying a few nights max. Wifi was good even in the rooms which is rare for hostels! Price is good and you get a discount in the bar downstairs which is always a plus!
