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.

My first hostel stay and I was more than pleased!! Nice clean hot showers, privacy black out curtains around the beds nice size lockers. Overall would go back to this place. Side note The room was very hot so it may be uncomfortable in the summer. Great staff always willing to help.

3 night stay in a 4 bed room female only.
I stayed at the Palmers for 3 nights as I was attending a University conference. It was pretty good in comparison to other hostel. It had free coffee/tea and wifi was great I stayed on the 2nd floor and never had an issue and it was always well heated. You have to bare in mind when in a hostel you won't be getting the best night sleep and all the amenities will be shared. The bathrooms and showers were fairly clean but once again basic. Overall I think it was a solid stay and would recommend it for a short cheap stay. If your someone that values undisturbed sleep and nice amenities this is probably not your place but you do get a solid experience for what you pay for.

The hostel was in an old building that was very charming. All the staff is excellent. They do have the ability to choose all same sex dorm rooms, which is a great option. My only complaints would be better temperature control (my basement room was very hot in the dead of winter) and more bathrooms. There was only one in the bathroom and it got crowded quickly. The neighborhood is great. It’s minutes from an underground station and there are shops the street over. I would definitely recommend it.
