Lots of negative reviews here for this place. Guys, it's a £30 (for your own room) night hostel in the middle of London. It ain't the ritz! I have no issues with the hostel as I kept my expectations within the budget! There is a smell of curry, but the owner/caretaker is Asian?? So what?! My bed was clean and... More

If there's one thing more annoying than wafts of stale curry smell on arrival it's the continuing odour of stale curry during the stay. I did not espy any Asian comrades, but our erstwhile caretaker, Chowdray, was a strong suspect. His rather creepy demeanour is probably more the result of his being under the thumb of his large, domineering wife.... More

Unfortunately, I don't have anything positive to say about that hostel, except for the WiFi- it worked well. However, the room was dirty (you didn't even want to touch the floor with your bare feet), the bathrooms were filfty (mould everywhere), the host wasn't really into talking (he didn't even want to see our booking confirmation, just led us straight...

The owner is just very creepy and sketchy. Do not stay here if your female. Also do not stay here if you don't like the smell of mouldy curry, because the place is over powered by such a smell. The front door does not lock this is very dangerous because the area is not nice. The whole hostel hasn't seen... More

This place was one of the worst places, I've ever been to. And I have been to a lot of crappy places, around the world. For the first; you'll have to find this place. It's just a door, between to stores. If you don't know it's there, you walk right past it. There are no reception, and the hostel is... More

If you don't care about yourself you're in the right place! The only true info of the site is the good position. You enter the hostel and you get shock by an oppressive smell of expired food mixed with strange oriental spices: if you arrive still alive in your room is a miracol!! If you don"t like to wash yourself... More

According to the design of the web site, I have expected something more professional, with reception and so on. It is very easy to miss the hostel, so check the street view before your arrival. Our room was equipped with a bed (clean), a carpet (very dirty), a lamp (without a bulb), a TV (dunno if working) and hooks and... More

Clare H said it all before : " A little tired, but great location and perfect for a comfortable place to crash!” and her description text is entirely true. We enjoyed our 5 nights/6 days stay there and found Chandra was very helpful and accommodating.Very happy overall and one can't complain about the price !
