Hostel One Camden London Hostel Review and Information

Loved every second I stayed here. Felt welcomed from the second I walked up, and everyone that I met throughout my time here was just as kind, fun, and down for whatever. The day tours, free dinner (!!), and night activities made every minute of my stay amazing. - Anonymous
