Recently stayed here for one night. Very friendly receptionists who were at 10 am already able to offer us a clean room. Unfortunately, when we came back there was something wrong with our toilet, which gave a very unpleasant smell. The receptionist immediately sent a colleague along which confirmed that there was something wrong with the toilet. We received directly... More

Booked through Booking.com and no problems with processing booking, there's a tenner refundable deposit for the bed linen, so remember cash, 50p per day for safe or 1.50 for safe under bed...bargain! Small safe is big enough for a laptop and has charging socket. Free ear plugs are offered and... More

So I have read so many comments (pretty nasty / scary / dislike ) on another website about the place, thus I was prepared to face the worse! But when I got there, the place was clean, decent, calm, friendly staff members and perfect location for a London vacation. Unlike all the bad comments written, this place is best value.... More

Arrived at the hostel which was great in terms of location, extremely close to the underground and park. Came to check in and was told to my surprise that we each had to pay a £10 deposit (I do not recall reading this on the booking website or on our reservation) and found that there were additional charges for luggage...

It is the perfect place for zombies: nasty smells will make you feel like you are in the cementery, noisy drunks will keep you awake all night, and crowds of students will make it imposible to have a shower. Smells, snorks, noises, and smokes. Welcome to zombieland.
