The Space

Welcome to our listing! At the Charlie Chaplin we aim to provide backpackers and international travellers with a welcoming accommodation that offers clean, comfortable dorms that can suit you for a short or long stay as our guests. We do not charge for lockers, towels, or linens, and we can accomodate up to 20 people so we'll be sure to find room for you!

Most importantly, we make sure that our guests have fun and our friendly staff are always there to advise you and ensure that you get the most out of your stay in London. All of the best tourist sights of this great city are just a quick walk away, such as Tower Bridge, The London Eye, Saint Paul's Cathedral and many more.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The host and the employees from the bar were nice and friendly.
    The noise and the tideness was ok. The beds were good and the bathrooms too.
    All in all everything was good and I enjoyed my stay.

  • **Booking & Staff** Easy booking service, really friendly staff and helpful. **SAFETY** for 15£ a head per night, it is what it is.. a HOSTEL. That means, shared rooms and living conditions. Luckily we were a group of 6 with our own room, but others in the hostel were sharing with strangers. That isn't so bad since there are lockers where you can put you stuff in. You can fit a sports bag in this sideways to keep all your belongings in there. You would struggle to fit anything else bigger, such as a small "hand luggage suitcase". Rooms are not lockable, since it is a hostel. But the bedroom area is only accessible by those with rooms, so do not fear of safety. There is a seperate door for the bedrooms (above the pub) and you are given your own key. In the hallway, there is even a seperate keycode lock for extra security. Nothing to worry about here! You are as safe as gold. **ROOMS** We were with 6 guys, so please bare this in mind. We are not picky, not noble or in need of extra comfort.. all that concerned us was a BED!. Each room is fitted with 5 or 6 bunk beds and to put it bluntly, the rooms are in a bad condition to be perfectly honest, dirt under the bunk beds, a lot of dust. Parts of the rooms had mold growing in the corners (ceiling), or just looked really dirty (black patches) and the WINDOW in our room.. oh my oh my.. it was so disgusting we feared to open it in case it fell off. It was racked with grime and rust and we actually had to use a plastic bag to open the windows. Don't expect anything else other than a bed. Not even a desk, a draw.. nothing to hang or put your clothes. Whether this is normal for hostels I don't know.. just be prepared. ** Bathrooms** There are 2 shower rooms, and there is 1 toilet with a shower too. Again expect the bare essentials. A small mirror in each the size of your head and running water. Nothing or no where to put your toiletries or hang anything.. nothing. Other than that, they were kept in good condition and we were very pleased. ** LOCATION ** Location was great for us, 6 guys - although it may not appeal to anyone travelling alone or women, since the "hood" is probably not the best, That said, we found the location EXCELLENT! Right next to the pub is a TESCO metro where you can buy everything. Inside the same building is a variety of stores in a shopping mall, here you can buy pretty much anything. Just a 10-15 minute walk you can reach the BOROUGH MARKET, which is highly recommended! MUST DO. Just outside the pub are 2 bus stops to go in each direction, the bus's travel throughout the day and night (night bus) and just...

  • The host was pleasant and welcoming and the bed and room was clean. However, there were quite afew maintenance issues. Several showers weren't working and the light in the toilet was broken. It didn't create problems for me, but some people would struggle without a light in the toilet!

  • Funny Place. Funny People. Easy going! Thanks!

  • Très déçue.2 toilettes sur 3 étaient HS. Pas d'eau chaude pendant 2 jours et de toute façon il n'y a assez de pression que pour 1 douche sur les 3.
    Très sale. Aucune sécurité à part un casier qui ferme a clé mais qui est trop petit pour tout y ranger. Toutefois, l'hôte est sympa et le métro est juste au pied du bar mais je ne recommande pas. Très bruyant et les fenêtres ne sont pas hermétiques alors froid et humidité s'invitent dans la chambre

  • Nous étions 10 personnes pour un Week end dans cette auberge. Il ne faut pas avoir peur du manque d'hygiène, ni de faire la queue pour allez au WC ou sous la douche. Je le déconseille fortement

    March 2014
  • L'auberge est sale, aucune propreté ou hygiène.
    L'endroit est glauque, les chambres ne ferment pas à clé, les draps et serviettes sont sales, la salle de bain pas propre du tout.
    Mais endroit très pratique du point de vue de la proximité pour les visites a Londres, le métro est juste à coté mais très bruyant et quartier un peu glauque.
    Cependant, le manager est plutôt sympathique.
    en bref, n'importe quelle autre auberge est mieux pour passer votre séjour. Les photos n'étant pas du tout la réalité.

  • Great location and good for the price. Everyone there was nice and helpful. Convenient for a couple of days in London. Thanks!

  • Accueil sympathique bien que un peu glauque le bar pour récupérer ses clefs. Le quartier n'est pas intéressant et un peu glauque aussi!
    La porte d'entrée pour acceder aux chambres qui donne sur la rue est quasiment cassée et a de toute évidence déja été cassée plusieurs fois. La moquette dans les couloirs est dégoutante et des déchets trainent dans le hall d'escalier. Chambres très mal insonorisées (on dort "sous les voitures"...)
    Bref pas cher mais pas le mieux pour passer un bon we ;)

    February 2014
  • For the price is good value.

    The lockers are not suitable for big bags and the internet connection is not very good.
