About the hotel
The Saint James Backpackers is a family-run hostel that has been accommodating global travellers in central London for over 45 years. We have undergone a major refurbishment and now operate a range of rooms, from dormitory rooms with bunk beds through to private en suite rooms. Stay with us at the St James Hostel in a building combining original Victorian architecture with modern amenities.
We are a hostel with new beds, mattresses, furniture, bathrooms and loads of communal space. Well-maintained accommodations include an exclusive ladies-only dorm room and showers. Enjoy free continental breakfast consisting of fruity drinks, tea and coffee, four types of breakfast cereals and toast with spreads (jam and peanut butter). You can also use our communal kitchen to cook meals outside of breakfast time and can help yourself to complimentary tea and coffee any time in our two dining zones. Spend time at our common spaces such as the large patio garden and lounge with 50-inch HD TV. We offer free and fast 300Mb Wi-Fi available throughout the property.
Our ideal Central London location (Zone 1, Earls Court) places you within half a mile of Royal Parks such as Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. Within a 20-minute walk from the hostel are the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum. Madame Tussauds, Harrods and Buckingham Palace are 25 minutes away by train. Earls Court train station is five minutes away on foot while Heathrow Airport and London City Airport are a 45-minute and a 50-minute train ride away respectively.

All in all an unpleasant stay
Showers wouldn't drain, staff were nice but absent, wifi couldn't reach the room, and the room badly needed airing/deodorising
