Stayed 7 nights in August 2018

On the whole it is a good experience to stay but downside is you have to adjust with your living ...”

conditions as you will be seeing and staying in with many strangers. A lot of group travellers and some young family and also some grown up family travellers too. Great to see mixture and not a stereotypical ideas of travellers. This is my first stay here in Restup and it started off on a bad note as the booking thru Agoda is correct, but they received booking thru a third party. The room size was supposed to be 1 in 6, with confirmation email but they denied it was accurate and that it looked fraudulent, even tho the feedback came from their named staff.... We did come to an arrangement that I was upgraded to full English bfast on my request rather than go thru cancellation and putting the onus back on Restup. This would never have happened elsewhere as the obligation was with Restup and not the client who had paid in full. The staff on the front desk are not all keen and it seems to be a chore. They are not trained to acknowledge responsibility without passing the onus up the chain. The checking out process is quick and easy but the checking in is a crazy zoo scene due to the fact that 3pm is the ONLY check-in time and not before ! Sure, you cannot occupy the room before 3pm. But surely you can be checked-in before hand and key card not active until 3pm ? I would be giving this place less stars, but the other staff in general are very polite and very helpful. Would I come back here ? I think I would, only because of the location. Other than that, there are many others ....

Amazing stay in here!”

I have one-night stay in here, quite a big hostel but amazing. Especially when I need help to clean my room, we have some water from toilet goes into the room. We went to look for help and I met Mr Emerson! He immediately come to my room and clean it immediately with outstanding performance! He not only clean, he also makes sure everything is in perfect clean conditions before he leaves! I never met someone who work so hard and so helpful in hostel! But, the day I met him! He's the guy, thanks Mr. Emerson for the help! Much appreciate, hope to see you again when I come to London again!

Location is excellent and the facility provided in hostel is more than expected.”

Pros: Location is excellent, very near to London bridge. Facilities provided in hostel is also more than what i expected. Staff is very helpful and serve your request. Cons: Nothing. Hostel has tried to cover all the needs and if you very choosy then its not for you. I would say at this price, hostel is providing excellent service. Thanks!!

Agoda had messed up my booking - confirmed something different than what was booked at the hostel. That was of course disappointing after our long trip from Australia, but all comp,iments to the staff behind the reception... tbey were amazing. Tried to make it work for us, the client. The hostel was amazing, what a beautiful old building and very easy access to the 'underground'. I am sure that l will return again, next time l am in London, but then l'll book straight through the hostel.

Fine room, good place and nice staffs”

I and my friends were on a low-budget trip to London and we found that RestUp was the most affordable. The room is just fine, there is nothing much except for bunk beds and a sink. But receptionists were kind and supportive. Check in process was easier and faster than I thought. There is a bar and cafe downstairs which have good foods and drinks. The location is just suitable for those who can walk a lot, it’s like 10 mins walk from the underground and 30 mins walk from the Tower Bridge. Overall, we were satisfied.
