Very enjoyable stay, initially daunted by the size of the room, but the design allows fantastic comfort and privacy. Facilities both modern and immaculate. Would recommend Palmers Lodge over any other hostel to friends and family

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
