I had a wonderful time at Prime Backpackers. There is a true community here and everyone was so welcoming. The managers are helpful, flexible and know what they are doing. I only worked the agreed upon hours. I would recommend this hostel to anyone who was interested.

Emma and Anvar, the hosts, made for a really welcoming and pleasent experience. I loved my time there and it was better than I anticipated. Thanks so much for the opportunity. It made such a huge and positive difference in my life and I won't forget. The hostel really is close to everything that you need, even the trouristic spots. This is the place to stay and I was lucky enough to get the chance to do it.
If you do get it as well, don't waste it and make it count. It'll be worth it.

My experience at Prime Backpacker was very good.

The hosts Emma and Anvar were always around. I really enjoyed the events they have at the hostel like the Family Dinner.

The location of the hostel is very good, I always walk to know more about the city, it is a perfect environment to meet people from all over the world.

I recommend this experience.

I had an amazing time at Prime Backpackers! This was my first Worldpackers experience, and I couldn’t have asked for a better one. I was only meant to stay for 4 weeks, I ended up loving it so much I stayed for another 4 and I’m planning on going back in September. Prime truly feels like a big family, I had so much fun and everyone is so inviting and friendly. I did Housekeeping and Reception, I was properly trained in both roles and had plenty of free time to explore London. I would definitely recommend Prime Backpackers to anyone!

I loved my experience at Prime Backpackers Angel, I met wonderful people, the structure of the hostel and the facilities is great, the tasks are fair and London is amazing, with so much to do and see! I always recommend Prime Backpackers 🤍 if you want a family away from your home, this is the place!
