A very very good and value for money London hostel! I love here. It is close to tube station and there is a big Sainsbury's market. Good place, good staff and good environment

Kim Hoffmann, Dutch

Our stay at Barkston Rooms was very nice. We had a nice and simple breakfast. It's quite noisy, but the room mates were very respectful. I can't complain

Febby Widjayanto, Indonesian

The room is clean, pleasant, convenient and quiet. The property also has proper fixtures like laundry, kitchen, bathroom and breakfast room. I am looking forward to staying at Barkston Rooms for my future trip in London

Bridget, Australian

Rooms could do with thicker walls as could get noisy and breakfast was not very good value for money. In saying that the staff at Barkston Rooms were very helpful and accommodation overall was pleasant enough of an experience

Anita Lessnau, British
