When you come in it smells like a toilett. It's not very clean and 2 of 4 showers are broken. In one of the 2 working showers the light isn't working. The breakfast is a joke. In my room were 3(!) pest control things. I mean... really??? Just clean the freaking house, then you wouldn't have to risk the health... More

Friendly and funny atmosphere. Staff is great, the room is stayed in was very big and was cleaned every morning, it also had a bathroom inside. There is free wifi and free breakfast in the very early morning (too early for me :P). Overall I really enjoyed my stay here and would come back

My friends and I wanted to spend the night in London. See the night life and experience a club or two. I personally had a lot of fun on this weekend away but there were definite downsides. Firstly the hostel claims to be located 40 minutes outside of London. This is false. We took closer to an hour and a... More

The beds in the dorm can be noisy and all the plugs and extension cords are on the floor so top bunk either bring your own extension cord to reach you in bed or leave stuff on the floor. The kitchen is nice especially when there's a Tesco express around the corner. Very secure to get in. Stairway is very... More

The rooms are dorms, so you have 6 or 8 beds per room, some rooms have en-suite shower/toilets, bed have good mattresses, they provide basic sheets, duvet & pillows, and a free to use Towel if you ask them. The Common room can get very busy at times, and "cooking facilities" are limited to a Microwave, kettle, and a sandwich... More

Very warm welcome from the first moment. The staff Thomas, Medo, Damiano (Damn you're too good at chess...x)) Juan and all the others made a great effort to feel one welcome. They were also the first ones to involve the whole lounge in various activities. Rooms and facilities are certainly well enough for non fussy travellers and the whole package... More

Great experience for what I paid, friendly staff, friendly guests, fairly comfortable beds and plenty to do. Good transport links to the centre of London with underground and buses nearby. Only qualms are the fact it is next to a noisy main road (although this may have been enhanced for me due to a roommate insisting on the windows being... More
