I felt very much at home at Prime, the hours are super fair and the tasks require you to take responsibility for things which is great if you want to build up a CV. The hostel has great facilities, places to socialise and also to chill out. I'd recommend it and hope to be back soon!



The experience in Prime Backpackers was wonderful. I think that couldn’t be better, the hostel is a lovely place, big and with a lot of things to do. The energy of the place is something very great, there is others volunteers that creates a family place, also enjoyed to talk with others guests of the hostel. The manager Leo and after Georgia are truly concerned with creating an awesome experience for all volunteers. The tasks was not difficult and I learned a lot of new things, I totally recommend this place and already want to go back one day.



My experience at Prime Backpackers was phenomenal! The hostel staff and guests are wonderful, and make you really feel at home away from home. The work is exactly the way it was arranged before it came, some busier days and some quieter days, like anywhere. The manager is super attentive and a great person. I really recommend this experience.



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.
