“Lovely stay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2013

If you're up for some fun and don't want to spend too much money, then this hostel is ideal for you. Perfect location between Camden Town and Mornington Crescent stations. Although the street is always busy and crowded, crammed with pubs and cafes, I had a good sleep. It gets a bit noisy and shaky in the mornings because of the underground, though. The building isn't new and has no lift but it wasn't too much of inconvenience for me. Loved karaoke and pub downstairs. Staff is really friendly and nice. If you don't plan to spend your holidays in and want to explore the city and have a good time, this is an excellent choice.

This hostel is close to train stations to central London, has a great suburban location. Noisy hostel, but this is because there's events on every night in the downstairs bar (they give you free earplugs). Great discounts on drinks and food for guests. The hostel is kept quite clean, with friendly and helpful staff. I would definitely recommend it if you want to do a pub crawl - a great one starts at the downstairs bar. Lockable cages under the beds fit a large 70L backpack in them -bring your own lock or buy one at reception.

This is a pretty decent place to stay, I wouldn't it recommend it to those who easily complain. The staff are nice enough, the rooms are cleaned every day (cleaners are also very lovely) Great area of camden - everything at your front door. The streets are loud - but if you want location that is what you get and on the weekend the bar downstairs gets loud, again that is something you come to expect in a central area. The kitchen could really go with something...anything, all they have is a kettle and microwave, so long stays would be kind of hard to do.

Brilliant location - love the Camden markets. Staff were friendly, but not friendly enough to help me get my luggage up and down their staircase. Clean. Heating up way too high. Extending your stay not as easy as they make out - you have to check out in the morning and back in that night - if you're lucky enough to stay in the same room, you can leave your luggage where it is, if not you have to pay to put it in the lockers two flights down.

Stayed in a 10bedroom mix dorm during the weekend before Christmas for 3 nights. In a room on the floor right above the bar. The ensuite has 2 decent showers, 2 toilets, and 2 sinks. Pretty good for what it was, I've seen worse, wasn't tiny or cramped. The room itself could do with more space for everyone's luggage but that just boils down to wether or not people are respectful.

Pros:
Better than I expected
Really nice bar staff and extremely friendly cleaning people
Decent bathroom
Really good central heating for winter stays
No weird smells or any creepy weird things
Awesome bar food with discounts
Good Camden location, super close to tube

Cons:
Music from bar downstairs is extremely loud goes until 2am
Cleaning staff didnt always clean everything/properly

Music didnt bother myself or my friend at all as we both got in late always after 3am so bar had already closed. This is a social hostel so expect a few bunkmates to be coming in at the early morning hours from a night of fun. If you want sleep don't expect it before 2am.

Definitely worth a stay for the great bar staff and cheap bar food/drinks!

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher up to avoid bar noise if you want a good nights sleep and try to ask for a bot...

the hostel has a very good location within london's thriving quarter Camden! the camden markets and the London Zoo are just a short walk away, and access to the tube. now, the hostel was cheap but the toilets and shower (en suite) of our 8-bed room were always dirty. there is a pub on the ground floor and the music was very loud until 2am. continental breakfast was scarce and there was no coffee. if you want to save money for london's great attractions st. christopher's is a good place to start your trip. if you want comfort, cleanliness and silence you should look for a more expensive place.

St Christopher's Hostel in Camden serves up a taste of North London like no other. Surrounded by rockers, city hipsters, young professionals and artists alike, everyone's welcome in this neighbourhood. You'll find the best hostel in London between the Camden Town and Mornington Crescent stations on the London Underground, mere minutes away from of all the must see tourist attractions in the area. This youth hostel is super easy to get to from anywhere in London, it's close to the famous Camden Locks and markets, and when you've had enough of the big city, you can make yourself at home in our relaxed chill out room, fully equipped with TVs, Internet access, couches and cushions. Camden has always been a haven for artistic types and in addition to the fantastic Belushi's bar attached to the hostel, there are plenty of pubs, clubs and bars in the area with the best live music in the city to keep you entertained - including the legendary KOKO! From this backpacker base you also have access to the many local markets selling everything you could possibly imagine and the Camden Locks, where you can stop for a drink, people watch, and see the barges pass by. You can also walk from the hostel in Camden to the London Zoo in Regent's Park and to Primrose Hill, which offers the best cityscape view over London, anywhere in the city! With one of the original Doc Martin shops nearby and exciting events at the MTV London studios just around the corner, there's so mush to see and do around this North London hostel. ... more   less
