I stayed here last March for a couple of nights after our trip to Finland. We stayed in one of the larger dorms which I found ok, but my fiance would have preferred us to spend a little more for sharing with less people. It is possible to get private rooms here as well.

This hostel acts as the main reception for the three St Christophers hostels on this road. The rooms here, as in the Orient Espresso, are clean and simple usually with a single bed bunks layout. Breakfast is also included which can be handy, but again on this trip I didn't get to try what the food is like. This hostel is upstairs from Belushis Bar which is run by the hostel and its pretty lively, which is great for socialising and ok for sleeping....it didn't bother me too much.

There are plenty of facilites here and the staff are really friendly and helpful, I would certainly use St Christophers again.

Unique Quality: The Hostel has a great location, a really vibrant bar downstairs (can be found open and busy most week nights which was a god sent last time I was here!) and some quirky extras like the hot tub and saunas on the roof.

Directions: Get off the underground at London Bridge, turn left and walk down Bourgh High Street about 5 mins and its on your left. Look out for Belushis Bar signs as it is the same building

A great hostel! Cheap, in downtown London, minutes away from all the major attractions. The staff was nice, there is a great atmosphere with all kinds of young tourists from all over Europe. The one day I was there I managed to visit the Tate Museum, The eye of London, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, St. Paul's Cathedral, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge. Not bad eh

Unique Quality: Great media room, with games and a nice home theater system

Directions: A couple of minutes walk from London Bridge station

I have stayed at this hostel twice, in different rooms. During my first visit I was in a mixed dorm room with three other people. This was during the summer and the place was really hopping-sometimes the bar seemed to never close. But since I am a little past the partying stage at this point in the game it wasn't really my scene. During my second stay, in December, things were a bit quieter. I stayed in a two person room which seemed to be more my style. My only complaint is that the bathroom was a little too far down the hallway and the halls echoed. I swear every person in the dorm room next to me had to go to the bathroom at least three times apiece in the middle of the night-lots of doors slamming and such.

Unique Quality: Well, for starters they have a hot tub and a sauna on the roof. You don't find that in many hostels! I also really enjoyed the bar and pub food. (Show your room key and you get a discount.) The staff went out of their way to make sure that we knew of the activities that were going on in the bar, as well. One night there was a comedy show, another night open mike night, etc. The cleanliness level is about average. They seem to clean the bathrooms once a day and I would recommend wearing flip flops in the showers. But it's not any worse than normal.

Directions: At the end of London Bridge, on the south side. There's a bus that runs from Victoria Station and stops directly in front of the hostel. From gatwick airport, take the Southern Rail train straight to the London Bridge station for 8 pounds.
