“Good location but don't expect a good nights rest.”
Reviewed 29 June 2012

I stayed here based on my good experiences with St Christopher's locations across Europe. This was probably my least enjoyable stay but its still far better than some other hostels I've vacated. The staff was friendly enough no complaints there, the accommodation was pretty standard. We stayed in a 6 bunk room with the roll out lockers underneath the bottom bunk. There was a shower in the room which was small and there was one small hook behind the door to hang a towel and clothes. The sink was outside of the shower stall which was nice so that even if someone was occupying the shower you could still have water access. My major complaint with this specific location was that at night the speakers were so loud in the bar/restaurant below that it made sleeping near impossible and that was with me having ear plugs in. If your sole purpose to stay here is to party until you pass out then this location will suit you but a warning in advance to those of you looking for a little quieter time, look elsewhere.

The staff wasn't overly friendly, or helpful for that matter. I think they are mostly other travellers just working here for the stay. The sleeping room is clean enough as is the washroom and showers, the chill room stinks like b.o. But it doesn't matter anyway because it has been closed and the only means of cooking, a microwave is unavailable. Overall it could be much worse, the place is decent with only minor setbacks and I suppose I would say its been a good stay.

I had a great time in this hostel! This was my first experience and while the rooms were clean they were nothing spectacular. It is in a great location. There is always somewhere to go in the evenings and it is close to the underground if you don't want to stay in the area. Simona and Thomas (sorry if it's spelled wrong) were super helpful! If anything I would come back to stay just because of them!

This place is a pretty cool place to stay. I couldnt get over how nice and clean and spacious the rooms were.
The toilets/showers were nice and clean and private.
The atmosphere was good and everyone was fun and friendly!
Most of the staff were efficient and helpful (bar one girl with either a lip or nose ring). She was very rude, dismissive and acted as if everything was a chore for her!
The bar downstairs is good fun and by far the cheapest in Camden for both food and drink!
It's not in the nicest of areas. Camden is a bit rough at best but the hostel is safe with a key card system in place.
It's close to the tube which is good.
Nice communal area downstairs too. Linking up with other guests for a night out is easy. It ended up being a great night too!
Breakfast in the mornings good also.

Room Tip: I was in an 8 person room and found it good. The higher the floor, the better!

Stayed here as cheap accommodation for a night out, can't rate the place highly enough cheap, clean, comfortable with fantastic staff. Will def stay again, manager (nick) really great and helped with what to see and do but as out socializing could do worse than sitting in belushis for a few great atmosphere.

This hostel is great if you're going with some friends...Staff were excellent and the manager (we share a room with him) is very helpful and very nice guy...Location is perfect very close to Camden market, restaurants and pubs....noisy? I don't think so! as other people said this hostel is on top of a pub but at 2am the music stops and you can have a nice sleep....We found it very good place and the price was excellent!...I recommend it 100% ;)

The hostel is located above a bar; this is not necessarily a problem, but the noise from the bar lasts until 2 am, and it's incredibly loud. In addition, the bed is shaky, so any movement from the other person in the bunk bed is very disruptive. The bathrooms are filthy.
