Staff were friendly and helpful. The neighbourhood is ok. It was very clean. It was noisy due to guests hanging around outside until the early hours, being fairly rowdy. I don't think I really slept. I didn't eat breakfast, as cocopops and white toast aren't really my thing. I went somewhere for yogurt instead. Not comfortable with mixed bathrooms, and the only all-female one was 3 floors from the female dorm and only one shower and basin.

My stay at the St.james hostel was amazing. Earls court is a convenient and safe neighbourhood close enough to the heart of London. The price was amazing for the value you receive. I felt very welcome, the beds were comfortable and it was very easy to make friends with their open atmosphere. I definitely recommend this hostel for any single female travels (and any other travellers for that matter). Thanks again for the amazing stay in London!
