Palmers Lodge Reviews
This was a great hostel for my 4 nights in London. It wasn't in Central London but so easy to get into, the tube station isn't far away. The rooms were really nice and very clean, breakfast was ok and the bar was a great way to meet people. I enjoyed my stay at Palmers Lodge and I will be back in the future.
I really loved staying in Palmers Lodge. Although it was in zone 2, with Jubilee line, it was close from all spots:) What I felt uncomfortable about was that there weren't many plugs in the room
For the money you spend on this hotel, you can't beat it if your on a budget. Super clean and the staff were friendly. Good breakfast and lounge area. I'd say the only downfall is that you have to take to tube to get anywhere but it's right by the station so you can get anywhere in no time!
The communal areas of the hostel wouldn't be out of place in an up-scale hotel - fantastic old building and really helpful staff. The dorms have real character and a lot more spacious that you would expect for the number of beds - you don't feel cramped at all. A unique place and certainly recommendable
