This hostel is in a pretty good location, walking distance to Oxford Circus and also Regent's Park and Great Portland Street. The hostel is clean and warm, and the bar and cafe has a variety of food and drink. The staff were really helpful, and the self-catering kitchen is well sized. The wifi is available in common areas but sometimes...

We booked a 4 person private bedroom for a 3-night stay in this hostel. We really enjoyed our stay. The location is great, just a 5 minute walk to various underground stations. The closest ones are Oxford circus, Great Portland street and Regent's Park. As for the room: the beds are very good, the room itself was a bit small...

This hostel is in a good location. The rooms are decent. The bathrooms are ok. But I felt like a bit of a floating dollar sign here. Need money for everything. Only wifi in the lounge downstairs which we guessed might be to get you to buy stuff. That might be wrong but its just the impression the place gives....

I've just had a three night stay here and will start by saying the staff are excellent. After I'd booked I sustained a knee injury which made it difficult for me to use the top bunk, but the reception staff were happy to try and find me a room which had lower bunks available. The hostel is situated just a...

We had a great stay from start to finish. On check in the staff were very welcoming and accommodating. All areas we encountered were clean & tidy and our dorm was impeccably clean. Being a group of females (3 being children) we felt safe and secure with the card system. At breakfast the staff again were helpful and nothing was...

I really like this hostel for the location, friendly and helpful staff. I stayed in a private room with toilet along with my mom and sister. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable. The only bad thing was the shower, it would overflow and flood the toilet because the drain wasn't working properly. We didn't request to change rooms...

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed at! It was super clean, I do think hostels in The UK have higher cleaning standards though.

Overall a really nice place with a nice friendly atmosphere. The facilities are plentiful, but things in this hostel are getting more and more damaged and no repairs are being done. I stayed in the same room as last year (coincidence), and the bathroom lock has become even more wonky and the tap even more leaky. I remember these problems...
