I had been there alone in a private room for one night at this hostel.
They gave me a double bed room with private bathroom to stay.This is quite nice and large bed for me to sleep in.(Although is a far distant from the tube station....)There is elephant and castle shopping centre by walking for 15 mins (as i walk really slow and relax to get there).There are some city renting bicycle along the street.That area is quiet and I think is a housing area.It's better for you the check the bus to get here by the way(if you have large luggage with you, because it went sucks that i took a large luggage with me taking the tube and i got lost for so many times..........it's crazyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
i remember that there is a 114bus??? reaching between victoria to elephant and castle...you can check if you wish ti stay here,
i heard a alarm noise that night when i am sleeping...at around 12:00,but i am so tired and go to sleep again.....and i turn out save the next morning..hahaaaaa= =,,i actually dunno what's going on.....................................
PS:there are no hair dryer for the hostel!!!!!
bring your own if you really need that.
there are some hand dryer in the shared bathroom..(i used those to dry my hairrr...!!)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- REST UP hostel in London has been established within Driscoll House, a unique pre-WWI baroque style listed building, unlike any other in the surrounding suburb of Elephant & Castle. We have a century old history of being a hostel, a claim that we are very proud of, originally just for women and children however now open to all. With an original exterior, the interior has been brought up to date with modern common areas perfect for relaxing and zoning out of reality and into the cyber world with our FREE WIFI. Our TV room and terrace are both great places to enjoy some snacks and laze around in the brightly coloured chairs/ bean bags and soak up the sunlight (on the rare occasions when London’s weather decides to shine). English not your mother tongue? That’s not a problem! We have multi-lingual staff that are here to help you. A hostel unlike any other hostel; with the hustle and bustle of central London on our doorstep complimented by the great array of guests within (young and old from all around the world) as well as friendly staff and delicious meals available throughout the day it’s the perfect place to make new friends, relax and REST UP at Driscoll House Hostel. ... more less
