Barmy Badger Backpackers

Kensington, London

Popular points of interest near Barmy Badger Backpackers include Olympia Exhibition Centre, Natural History Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum. The nearest airport is London City Airport, 20 km from the hostel. Barmy Badgers was wonderful. Shout out to Josh at the front desk for being an absolute Pal. The first thing you notice when you walk in is the cozy, comfortable atmosphere. They have a rec room with a large couch, perfect for relaxing or for mingling with some of the other visitors. The staff is fantastic and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area, they gave me some pointers regarding places to check out. The kitchen had everything you’d want for a quick light breakfast, nothing overly fancy, but perfectly adequate. The rooms were exactly as described, and I couldn’t find anything to complain about. The location is without question fantastic, just 200m away from the Earls Court train station, and walking distance to a variety of stores, restaurants, and pubs. Like I already mentioned, what made this experience worthwhile were the people. Everyone was incredibly kind and easy to get along with, I had some great conversations with some of the others staying, there was immediately a sense of welcoming hospitality that you don’t unfortunately don’t experience everywhere. I would absolute recommend this place to others and will be staying here again next time I’m in London. Cheers!

Hostels. What are they?

Way more than just a cheap place to sleep, hostels are a social way to travel and meet like-minded people. Common areas like shared kitchens or games rooms are great ways to swap tips, tricks and travel stories with backpackers from all over the world. <br><br> Hostels have come a long, long way since the first youth hostel opened in 1912. From budget 'crash-pads' to five-star 'poshtels', today, hostels are for everybody, so whether you'd prefer a bed in a shared dorm or your own private room, you'll find most hostels are cheaper than a local hotel and far more fun.
