Park Villa is currently rated the best hostel in London on HostelWorld! We are a new boutique hostel in the heart of the old East End of London less than a 5 minute walk from Mile End station. The hostel is a Georgian Regency villa with 8 rooms ranging from shared dormitories to private rooms with en suite and shared shower and bath facilities. We provide excellent Wi-Fi, very comfortable beds with luxury 200-thread count cotton linen, great showers, obsessively helpful receptionists and a very relaxed, chilled-out social vibe. We are not really a 'party' hostel. We find that the type of guest we attract tends to be respectful of other guests, interesting, worldy and well-travelled. We're sure that includes you and we hope to welcome you to Park Villa someday!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was my second stay at this hostel and I came back like I said I would. This time I stayed for a week and I really enjoyed my time here. I was on my holiday, so the location close to the tube station and the bus stop meant a big deal to me. There're shops and cafes around, beautiful Victoria park and Regent Canal. The hostel staff was nice and welcoming and coming back I felt like at home. This time I used the kitchen which is very well equipped . The bed was comfortable and had a privacy curtains which was one of the reasons why I chose this hostel. My room looked on the busy and noisy street which can be sometimes disturbing during the night, but that didn't spoil my stay. On suit bathroom in female dorm and cleanliness are big plus. Looking forward to come back again!

Room Tip: The best is to book directly with them and they are very well connected with busses and the tube....

I stayed in room #4 for 5 nights - they use regular beds instead of bunk beds in this room. The bed was comfy and the number of bathrooms were adequate enough for me. There were traffic noises coming from Grove Road but personally I think they’re still acceptable - you can close the window facing the road and use the electric fans provided if you feel too stuffy. I did enjoy my stay there. Please note that this place is quiet and definitely not a party hostel!

The location is cool. Really close to parks, pubs, local markets and a Tube station. Some of the facilities are a little run-down. I slept really badly because the room was too hot and the other guests were loud. It was a good base to have, but I honestly avoided being here as much as possible. I'm surprised this Hostel has been rated so highly.

Yes, I was pleasantly satisfied with my two nights at Park Villa Hostel. Good vibes. I was out sightseeing London for most of the 2 days and quite hurried but there were a few little things that I should have mentioned to the staff though. Not significant enough to be a problem, but just for the sake of general maintenance then I thought I should mention here. The plug socket by my bed had a slight crackling sound at times when inserting my plug, which is usually due to electrical contacts that need better connecting, a quick 5 minute job, no big deal. It still charged my phone OK, but they ought to attend to it. The lounge computer is comedically slow, I did not particularly require using it but I did load up a Linux live boot USB that I had, and it runs very smoothly, which indicates that your computer just needs to refresh the Windows installation, clear up some of your data. Maybe an hour or two to resolve. Probably a lot of guests who like to use a computer for Internet, would bring their own laptop or a phone so it would not affect them but I think you should do something about making that computer better. I know that London city is rated highly for remote working "Digital Nomads", due to fast Internet speeds and various other lifestyle factors. I think that this hostel would be suitable for remote working, since the atmosphere is not too noisy or hectic, cleanliness is good and the lounge space could be used for casual collaborative sessions and display stuff on the TV. It seemed peaceful enough during my short stay there anyway and I did see a young woman use her laptop a bit and hear a bit of typing. Thanks!

Very nice staff and very good location close to Underground and buses. Nice breakfast for £3, they give you the option to see the breakfast before and you are free to pay for it the days you want to. Confortable beds. I would come back.

Another good stay here. Good location for cafes and eateries and TUBE station. Great value for London in the East End. Lovely accommodating staff whom are volunteers remember. Nothing too much trouble. And a £3 breakfast is the icing on the cake.

We had a twin room on a very hot weekend. Being a basemwnt flat it was nicely cool. The accommodation was clean, and the staff were really really helpful about getting to the venue for the concert we were seeing. There was also a "help yourself " light breakfast option for £3. The only issue was the toilets and showers being shared...my mum and I have reached an age where at least one night time toilet stop is a given, and this wasn't ideal as we had to go through the foyer in nightwear to reach them. Otherwise, lovely though.

I had a really nice time at the hostel. It was calm, clean and the staff was really nice and helpful. The kitchen has all the appliance you need, and the breakfast is cheap and generous. Will come back for sure if I happen to spend some days in London again !
