Mixed rooms not ideal and not not very comfortable
Too warm. Bit of a walk to tube
Great location, a quaint atmosphere, and the staff were incredibly helpful.
A little bit pricey to not have breakfast included. That said, the £6 breakfast was substantial and worth the expense. Also, the beds are a bit small so tall people might have issues (friends of mine did) but I was perfectly comfortable at 5”6.
The hostel looks beautiful from the outside and inside. Individual lockers are available at the bottom of the bed but you need to bring your own padlock to use them. Bring your own towels and toiletries as well.
Toiletries are not provided so you should bring your own shampoo/soap or buy them from the reception. There is a bleach smell in the bathroom and the reception area, sometimes the smell spreads to the guest room areas as well. Breakfast, in my opinion, doesn't worth 5 quids. And you need to pay extra to get the bottom bunk bed apparently
Fab location, access Jubilee or Metropolitan tube both within a 5 minute walk. From the north subject to peak traffic one should be able to access PH by car, there is good parking provision. I got the tube from Stanmore to Swiss Cottage on this occasion. I walked from PH to Camden and The Round House, others may prefer to take the # 31 Bus, taking just a few minutes. Black out curtains on the bunks and room windows work well and the rooms are well ventilated. To enhance your stay take: ear plugs, to ensure a good night sleep. A padlock to secure your under-bed-trunk, which will take most padlocks, the micro suitcase type is not ideal as the clasps are heavy duty… A must have is Phot ID, as least ensure you have a pic of your Driving Licence or Passport on your phone…. I will certainly be using Palmers again… Kevin
One bathroom on my floor was out of service, I am sure a fix is in hand, otherwise all good.
