Hostel 639 Jul 12, 2011
came too early for check-in but then it was just to wait. When I checked in, got the room key and got to the room I was greeted with 8 beds in a mix room. it was very clean, and every day they came to wash floors and stands ready the bed for the new coming. room had shower on hold, then hostel life is not something for a person who is very shy. a big plus with the 639 hostel is that all are smiling and laughing. it is also easy to find someone to talk to there. its persons from all over the world thats staying there.

are u lucky, u get to meet a group u get alonge with like i did.

A cheap/horrible hostel, but not worth... Apr 26, 2009
Aptly located on Harrow Rd., staying at Hostel 639 is a harrowing experience. I am hesitant to call this place a flea bag hostel only to avoid insulting the noble flea. This is the dirtiest place I have ever seen, and I have been to several third world countries. There only seems to be one toilet in the whole place, and the showers were crudely built into the corner of each room.

The metal-framed bunk beds looked like they were assembled from scrap metal by a chimp. They were shaky and leaned to one side. I thought my bed was going to collapse. If it did, perhaps I could have joined the people buried in the cemetery that our room overlooked. I grew to envy the dead buried there--at least they didn't have to wake up in that insect-infested filth hole.

It's unthinkable that such a moldy, dirty place with so many people packed into its rooms is properly licensed and legally operated. I highly doubt that it is. I can only recommend Hostel 639 for fans of Victorian Literature looking to re-create the squalor-ridden London of Charles Dickens.

Verry Bad!! Mar 08, 2009
Hostel 639 is verry dirty.

I slept in a room with 3 other people. This was not a promlem. But my room was on the first floor. Every evening disco loudness. And in the bar was nobody. The kitchens were verry dirty. In the morning the breakfest was verry tiny. Only toast bread, marmelade en chocladepaste.

Toilets dirty

all dirty!

Yes, this place is really loud at night! I feel bad that you had to sleep on the first floor...Staff looked really bad, too.

We were in 3rd floor? But then there were a lot of mattress which kind of blocking the hallway...Oh, that place was cheap, but it was such a nightmare...
