    The hotel was in a good location and the communal rooms downstairs were lovely..

    The bedrooms are very small and extremely basic. There was no toilet on our floor so it was a treck to the loos in the night

    The bathroom and showers area were surprisingly clean, which I honestly did not expect. The location is quite convenient as well, as there is a bus stop right in front of the hostel.

    We were placed on the 4th (technically 5th) floor with NO elevator! We were all out of breath by the time we had reached our room. That is significantly worse when you have to carry up your luggage! There was also no wifi except for the lobby. The room also had a very strong prison cell feel to it. Yikes.

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.
