Amazing stay in here!”

I have one-night stay in here, quite a big hostel but amazing. Especially when I need help to clean my room, we have some water from toilet goes into the room. We went to look for help and I met Mr Emerson! He immediately come to my room and clean it immediately with outstanding performance! He not only clean, he also makes sure everything is in perfect clean conditions before he leaves! I never met someone who work so hard and so helpful in hostel! But, the day I met him! He's the guy, thanks Mr. Emerson for the help! Much appreciate, hope to see you again when I come to London again!

Great as a student, not used to this in my 30s!”

This is perfect for some affordable accommodations with friendly staff and not far from nightlife in London. I used to travel like this all the time in my 20s and appreciate it’s still available. I was with my niece and nephew and we had to laugh at how small the private room with bunk beds was, but all the same, it was great. One thing - we were on the top floor at the end of November and it was a little too warm in the room and the traffic outside was still pretty loud. Oh well, all in all I would recommend it for like-minded people.

Nice place for a couple of nights”

It is a nice place to spend a couple of nights. It's close to a metro station and bus station. The rooms are what you pay for. I got a room with more than 30 beds, bunk beds of 3 beds. It's a safe and nice neighborhood close to a supermarket and restaurants. The staff is friendly and helpful. I asked for a bottom bed since due to an injury I can't climb to a top bed. They attended my request. I didn't like there weren't enough outlets around to charge our electronics. The bathrooms can be cleaner and have more toilet paper available. The £4 breakfast is just bread, cheese, ham, coffee, and juice.

Fine room, good place and nice staffs”

I and my friends were on a low-budget trip to London and we found that RestUp was the most affordable. The room is just fine, there is nothing much except for bunk beds and a sink. But receptionists were kind and supportive. Check in process was easier and faster than I thought. There is a bar and cafe downstairs which have good foods and drinks. The location is just suitable for those who can walk a lot, it’s like 10 mins walk from the underground and 30 mins walk from the Tower Bridge. Overall, we were satisfied.
