Highly recommend to backpackers!
Overall it was amazingly satisfactory staying at Palmers Swiss Cottage. The hostel is being well kept even it was built a century ago! Beds(with curtain), Toilets are comfortable to use. Highly recommend having a unlimited breakfast (buffet) for 4.5 pounds. Five minutes from Swiss Cottage station having the bus stop for the city within 2 min walk. Would like to stay again !

Swiss Cottage
For a hostel it has great privacy however you are forced to sleep with the windows open so if your close to them like I was it will make for some uncomfortable cold night.

perfect for roof spaces & school children hostel
The 20 person female room is up in the roof, as a tall person i spent the whole week hitting my head or back on the roof beams trying to get into the bed (which was smaller than your normal single bed), there was no need for the pillow either which was wafer thin. A school group showed up while staying there which meant no kitchen service until late as they refused to serve anyone else until the school group arrived, ate and left again (they weren't there when my friends went to eat). But hey, they compensated us with 20% off at a resturant 5 minutes away, this resturant did not have anything for less than £10 on the menu, so 20% off wasnt very helpful when we had only been going to spend £5 for food and drink. So if you are really short and hopefully dont get a school group staying at the same time as you, then stay here.
