Only minutes away from sights such as the Tower Bridge, the Tower of London and the City Hall, it's an easy walk from the buzzing nightlife of Shoreditch and next to Wilton's Music Hall; the location is just awesome for young travellers.
Located in the heart of the city, we’re only a short walk from the London Eye, Tower Bridge and London’s biggest food market, Borough Market. With the hostel being 2 minutes walk from TWO tube stations, getting around the city doesn’t get much easier.
Rather clean room, interesting bar with activities. Friendly reception staff
We had a great stay
Very good Hostel, clean, fun and very Nice staff at the réception
Youth hostel with a good atmosphere, friendly staff who do their best to help you. In terms of location, the metro is not very close, but remains accessible to a 10-minute walk.
We are very happy with our stay (5 days). We were 6, 2 adults and 4 children in a mixed dormitory for 6 people with bathroom and toilet on the 7th floor. The children especially enjoyed the baby foot. The breakfasts are also very good, varied and plentiful. We used the kitchen to prepare the evening meal, it is well equipped and there is a small supermarket nearby for shopping. The subway is a few minutes walk from the hostel.
Great location, bar just below the hostel so a bit noisy
Have a good stay. The hostel is very well located compared to the city center of London
The hotel is in great location, great food, bar down stairs, nice room and renovated bathrooms. Friendly staff too!
The hostel is very clean. There's a bar on the bottom floor. Large lockers available to safely store your luggage. Breakfast is pleasant. Worth it to spend and stay here.
Located in central London we’re only a short walk from the London Eye, Tower Bridge and the London Dungeon. The London Bridge tube station and Borough Markets, one of the best and most extensive food markets in London are right on our doorstep. You can also take a stroll along The River Thames and beyond to take in St Paul’s Cathedral, Tate Modern Gallery, OXO Tower, Gabriel’s Wharf, the British Film Institute, the Southbank Centre, the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament.
Tower of London is 1.1 km -, while Tower Bridge is 1.2 km away. London City Airport is 10 km from our hostel.
Southwark is a great choice for travellers interested in city walks, monuments and culture.
For the short stay I made this hostel suited me perfectly. Located near the center of London, it allows you to visit the city at a lower cost. It is the ideal place for sightseeing.
It was excellent
Extremely noisy for a family with children
Very welcome, despite a late arrival (2:30 am). The staff is very nice and smiling. Nice room, clean, as well as the bathroom. Nice offers for the restaurant and the bar of the hostel + musical entertainment every night. We had a great time!
The hostel is okay if you don't mind sleep in 3 to 4 tier bunk beds.
The location is pretty convenient well located in central London, walking distance to London Bridge station it is very close to the London Bridge Borough Market. There is also a bar downstairs where you can definitely meet a lot of people. The bar and hostel is often frequented by fellow travellers and youngsters so expect it to be a little bit noisy and rowdy on the wee hour of the morning.
I had my computer stolen in a mixed room with 12 beds. For 10 € more the night I could have a room to 2 and more secure. It's partly my fault. The thing that bothered me the most was that the people at the front desk did not do anything, did nothing to help me, it was really cowardly and dishonest.
The property was very clean. Loved the location, very nice neighborhood, enjoyed walking. Staff were friendly and attentive. Thank you.
Clean and comfy beds, great location, nice staff, good food and location. will recommend.
We’re moments away from the famous Shoreditch, London’s gritty centre for progressives and urban art lovers, as well as a bustling Brick Lane and Old Spitalfields Market - the place to go for all your vinyl, vintage and international street food! Not only that, but our St Christopher’s Inn Liverpool Street is just a stone’s throw from the city’s exclusive terrace views – from Heron Tower to the mammoth Gherkin, this part of town offers every cocktail recipe imaginable!
Stay at Safestay Hostel London Elephant & Castle and you’ll find Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, Oxford Street and Leicester Square all less than 15-minutes away by tube. Tate Modern, the National Theatre, The Imperial War Museum, London Aquarium, London Dungeon, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, the Kia Oval and the famous Ministry of Sound are all within 1.5 miles of the property.

We stayed with our 2 grandchildren. Everything went as planned. Room 4 corresponded to our expectations. The competent, jovial staff gave us the advice we expected. Roughly nothing wrong, on the contrary.
great hospitality, rooms and bathrooms are clean, comfortable beds.
Very clean hostel !! Superb room, showers and toilets are well maintained, nothing to complain about. the staff is there for us. Only negative point, the price of breakfast is too expensive ...
Good reception, enough cleanliness, Lounge bar very nice, good breakfast
The place to stay in London! The Steam Engine is a hop, skip and jump away from London’s main attractions. Head towards the river to see London in all its glory. Walk between Big Ben, the London Eye, museums and more – and don't forget to get that perfect selfie! #PubLove
The London Waterloo Hostel, one of London's best loved and best located hostels. Our team are on hand to ensure every traveler has a uniquely memorable stay and a fantastic London experience. We offer a great location in Lambeth ,Zone 1, only 15 minutes walk to Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. There is a bicycle docking station around the corner and a 24-hour bus stop at the end of the road. Lambeth North Tube station is only a five-minute walk from the hostel.
Personnel super agréable qui est la pour vous aider si besoin. Auberge assez propre, le sol de la salle de bain est parfois sale avec tous les passages, mais le ménage est fait regulierement. J'ai galéré à utiliser la douche malgré que je sois restée 6J: sois trop chaude, soit trop froide une vrai merde ça par contre. Pour la sécurité, il y a des codes à l'entrée puis un pour rentrer dans la chambre et un petit casier mais pas de quoi mettre grand chose dedans, j'avoue que je flippais de laisser mon sac de rando assez chere que j'ai eu pour mon noel mais au final je me suis inquiétée pour rien.
Le bonus c'est que t'as une reduc sur la bouffe et les bieres, c'est situé proche de tout, le prix n'est pas très élevé.
A recommander pour 2/3 nuits
Ambiance sympa et cadre agréable
Despite the pleasant nights, the hostel is in very bad condition .. Sleep at midnight, standing at 7am to avoid staying longer in this hostel. Breakfast is acceptable (fresh apple juice, milk ('' normal '' or soy), orange juice (it did not seem to be put a fridge ..), 4 cereals and toast toasts). I still wonder if one of the people who held the reception spoke English well .. Certainly we are not 100% bilingual but we used simple words, sentences simple story to make us understand but as soon as we spoke to him in English (gently and articulate well) we had to systematically repeat several times, see to mimic to make us understand (which is not nice when we want to make efforts in English .. We saw two other people to The hostel was very friendly, quiet and polite, however, the hostel is extremely well placed for easy walking to see Big Ben and the surrounding area, and transportation (bus and metro) is also 5 minutes away.
Good reception, impeccable bedding and nice breakfast !!
Not far from the center, good reception and clean! Perfect for a short getaway to London
Pleasant stay for a few nights in London
