First, the location it's amazing, you have everything near, the kitchen is really nice and the social events within the Hostal are really a good thing. There is always something good happening. Biking is always a good idea, specially for the great location. The only thing, sometimes the team felt quite separated, but when I left, the manager was joining the Team. Most of the time I was outside, but this hostel is definitely one of my great life experiences.



Dear traveller, if you're reading this, the hunt is over. Prime Backpackers is THE Worldpackers experience you are looking for in London: great atmosphere, friendly and down to earth team and management, very reasonable hours and tasks (which gives you the flexibility to create a routine), central location and great access to ammenities, attractions, and transport. Last but not least, this hostel is a place to make genuine and lasting friendships. This is an experience that will never be forgotten.



Definitely a home a way from home. The hostel has great vibes along with an amazing crew running the place. Lisa and Leo are also amazing hosts! Moreover, the hostel is located in a great location (gyms around the corner, walkable to the tube and supermarkets) and not forgetting a full “masterchef” kitchen! The people and place will be sure to capture your heart and you’ll be wanting more of it and London for sure 😉 I highly recommend 💕



Prime Backpackers is the perfect option if you like sharing with a big family!! I’ve been very happy here. The staff and managers are lovely people. Always open to hear and help. I made friends and met wonderful people.
I want to add that the hostel is very well located and you can find peaceful green spaces in the area.
Thanks guys so much. Love you!



How many times in your life can you spend your time in such an incredible place? prime backpackers was my home, my family and my friends, the time I spent with you was incredible and I met incredible people, without any problem I would recommend this adventure to all the traveler who wants to spend incredible hours in London. thanks for everything and I hope to see you soon
