St Christopher's Inn Camden

Reviewed 22 May 2013 via mobile

I loved Camden and the location was fantastic. The staff is very hip and cool, but some came across as too good to help us. The hostel rooms were nothing special. When comparing to other hostels of that quality, it was quite expensive. We were served breakfast without cutlery and care, the menu was really not that great. Pub crawl was so much fun! Go on a Friday to end at the bar KOKO! Overall it was fine.

Stayed here for 5 nights in December in a private twin room. The room itself was very small and basic with a bunkbed and a tiny en suite bathroom. Had everything we needed though.
Location is amazing. Two minutes walk from Mornigton Crescent Tube station or 7 minutes from Camden Town tube station. Surrounded by bars and restaurants. Short walk to Camden Lock market. Bar downstairs is pretty good for food and reasonably priced drinks.
Woudl definately go back.

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.
