Ok… So maybe we're not that funny but at least we try and that's what we can promise we'll do… Try.

We'll try and make your stay as enjoyable as we can, providing everything you need and almost all free of charge.

Reception is open from 9am – 10pm with Check Out by 10am and Check In from 1pm. If you require after hours Check In please email in advance.

Our friendly staff are always around to help and there are Security Cameras and Lockers for added safety. We don't have a curfew so you can come and go whenever you like and our Basement with Pool Table and Stereo is open all night long for guests to mingle and Boogie on down.

We also have a Full Self Catering Kitchen with Fridges and Freezers, space for dry goods and like our TV Lounge which comes with DVD Player and Movie Library the Kitchen is open 24Hrs so you can cater to those late night munchies.

Free Internet access and Wi-Fi will help with keeping in touch with friends, looking for work or planning the rest of your trip.

Now we know we're not exactly central London but we're really not that far out. We're only a 10 minute Tube ride to Camden Town which has great markets and nightlife and a 5 minute ride to Hampstead Heath which is a top spot for Summer. Our Hostel is also the closest hostel to Luton and Stansted Airports which is handy without a doubt and we'll even email you directions on how to get to us from every Airport.

Our Hostel is less than a minute walk from Hendon Central Tube station so you won't have to lug those heavy backpacks far and Hendon Park is just up the road with a Large Field, Tennis Courts, Basketball Courts (and yes we have sports equipment for guests to use) so it's a great place to get active during the day or to chill out with friends during those hot Summer nights.

***Guests at our hostel can take advantage of our cheaper weekly rates and extend their stay*** (approach to the reception or phone the hostel on + 44 (0)20 8203 1319.
