Tanya Drew, British

A lovely old full of character building with friendly staff. Room was small and very basic but it was cheap, breakfast was very nice and I will book Borough Rooms again soon and would love a room overlooking the shard. Location is very good and near to the shops

Sandra Andrews, British

A group of 4 of us stayed a night at Borough Rooms and we thought it was great value, very clean, staff really helpful and polite especially Mark from DR! And it was quiet! We would use it again definitely for our school

Ebou Sohna, Gambian

Good rooms and a friendly enviroment at Borough Rooms. Excellent services, but I think it would have been better if the WIFi is accessible in the rooms, this will go a long way in making stays better and more friendly

Nora Beja, Belgian

Great hostel. Clean: that was by so far the cleanest London hostel I stayed in. Quiet, good sleep and location perfect. I didn't even use the tube as I like to walk. The hostel is 20/30 min away from almost all London spots on your list. Breakfast: I thought it was poor, adding porridge and eggs to the continental breakfast would be perfect. I'm definitely going to book Borough Rooms again when I come back to London

Chiara, Italian

Pretty good hostel in London, with a pretty good breakfast. Location is not bad at all, walking distance to Tower Bridge. If you don't walk there's Elephant and Caste tube in less than 10 min, or buses just in front of the hostel. I recommend Borough Rooms if you are looking for budget London accommodation, and you don't mind to share room with other people
