The Monkeys in the Trees
Ranked #569 of 956 Speciality Lodging in London
Reviewed 17 July 2012

I stayed in this hostel for a few short days, but it felt like home. The staff were friendly especially James the Aussie, the other travellers were friendly, and the hostel itself was inviting and comfortable. The bar underneath served as a lounge room when the common room in the hostel was busy, or any other time you wanted really. I met loads of people at this hostel, and we would cook our dinner in the hostel then take it down to the pub to eat it together.

Breakfast in the morning was plentiful but basic, and very good value included in the price. The location of the hostel for me was perfect as I was waiting to move into my house which was just a few blocks away. This was a great hostel at a great price.

Room Tip: The 9 bed rooms have bunks that are 3 high, where the 6 bed is only 2 high and maybe a little more c...
