    Breakfast was tasty - we upgraded to the full English Breakfast. Facilities were not fancy, but all we needed for a quick, low-budget visit to the city. Location was close to buses and tube, made for easy travel to all major sites.

    Would prefer if reusable utensils and cups could be available. Disposable are not only wasteful and unpleasant to drink from, but the fork broke when cutting a piece of bacon! Woke up at 2:30am Thursday evening to young men yelling and fighting in the hallway. I believe one was kicked out in the end. With no phones or wifi in the room, there was no way to report it to the desk without walking out into the hallway and in the middle of the incident, which I was not comfortable doing.

    Location is convenient. Cafeteria is cool to chill or get drink, big communal area, music in the lobby.

    Lift out of order. I was in room L5 which is in the back of the building. You will walk many stairs up and then down to get to that side of the building, likely get lost the first time. Toilets can be cleaner

    the noise from the other guests, the walls between are very thin and the guests were very noisy late into the night.

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.
