    The baisin in the room was handy and lots of areas to hang out and be sociable

    The room was very tiny, glad I was with friends and not strangers! Also girls toilets were right down the other end of the corridor- quite far

    Very friendly stuff, always helpful. Check in and check out was fast and without problems... there was big terrace with chairs and tables, that we really enjoy it. We slept in room with 33 beds and everything was good everyone behaved well! Good location! Good price!

    The staff was always very nice, motivated and happy to help. Moreover, I like the way the hostel takes action against common hostel problems like bed bugs etc with adequate covers on the mattresses. Thumbs up! Didn't see that in many hostels ;) The hostel has a great atmosphere and its location is convenient as well :) My stay was amazing! Thank you, Rest Up Team!

    Nothing. This place sucks.

    Its not at all central. There are 2 washrooms and 2 toikets amongst all the guests living in the entire building. You had to pay £3 each time you open your locker. There are no charging points in any rooms. Just 2 on each floor, shared amongst 60 people. The staff is extremely rude.

About

Overview

The Rest Up London Hostel is known as one of the best and gauging from its outward appearance that would be easy to believe. The charming, brick front building with its terrace garden and wonderful location on the New Kent Road makes it an appealing spot. Just a short walk to Elephant & Castle tube station and 15 miles to Heathrow Airport, it is also just a mile from sites like the Tower of London, Parliament and Big Ben, Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus. It is within the same area as the Imperial War Museum and London South Bank University, as well. A pre-WWI baroque building, it is a historic property and has been a hostel for more than 100 years. It features such amenities as a shared TV room, a beautiful terrace with covered tables and fun bean bag chairs. It has an onsite coffee shop and snack bar, there is free Wi-Fi in the public areas, a ticketing and tour desk, baggage storage option, laundry services (for a fee) and even some business services. Visitors can enjoy traditional breakfast each morning, pizza at night and healthier fare in the restaurant. They also offer group menus. The rooms include shared dorm rooms with options for four to a room or twenty beds in a dorm-style setting. The rooms are mixed gender, but there is a single four-bed female dorm. There are also twin and double rooms, and some even offer private baths at no cost. If an affordable and high-quality accommodation is the goal, but also one in one of the best spots in London, it will be hard to beat what the Rest Up London Hostel makes available to travelers of all kinds.
