Good value for price
Lovely place within the city centre, everything available at your door steps
Lights can be on even at 2 am, there is noise the whole night.washrooms and toilets are quite limited for a huge number of guests.
You can find way better
I liked that it was well located (less than 10 minutes walk to the Elephant & Castle tube station), St Pancras train station is 15 minutes away by tube and there are many buses around the hostel. You can also find a Spar and a Tesco Express supermarket as well as many kebabs next door if you want to grab something to eat. I stayed in a 4 beds dorm wich was clean and I had a nice view on the Shard. Toilets and shared showers were clean too.
Wifi was only available in sharing areas (only reception, " bar " and tv lounge). Also, the windows in the dorm were old and made of glass that was partially shattered so you could hear the traffic as if you were sleeping in the street. It can also be quite cold so I don't recommend staying there during fall or winter. Bed's matresses aren't confortable so I wouldn't recommend staying there for too long either. When it comes to eating in, there is a bar near the reception that sells £4 pizzas, sandwiches, coffee and many other things but it is only open from 12 to 19 and during these hours there wasn't anyone working at the bar so I couldn't get anything...
Excellent value for money
This is the second time I have ever stayed in a hostel...I can say with confidence that I will definately stay here again... $20 a night?! Who could say no! Also close to Elephant and Castle tube station too!!
I personally dont think it a good idea to have children (both male and female) sharing the same shower and toilet facilities as adults. I would strongly recommend having at least 1 floor dedicated to minors!
Unique structure- very convincing from outside/ in-side. Lovely staff at the reception 24/7 .
No Lifts ! Imagine 4th floor carrying two luggages ! ordered en-/suite single room - acceptable but sink is too small you cannot put your hand under the tap. Toilet was so small and that the toilet paper box was in a bad position so you’re not comfortable. There is nothing else in the room no kettle no mugs no glasses nothing not even a table or chair ! . at 11:34 pm it started getting noisy from people on the floor above you and other’s nearby. Very known for school trips and english students - teen age so you can imagine as well . plus no carpet no nothing at the shower. No place to put your toothbrush as sink is too small maybe the size of an IPAD lol .
Staff is nice and helpful. Location is nice, there is bus station in front of the hostel.
Lift isn't working and it looks like they will never repair it. Wi-fi is slow. Too many school trip students are staying and they are very noisy. We had a bathroom in the room, sink is too small but shower is nice. Room is tiny. Late check in and early check out
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.
