I stayed in this hostel in early February. It is located literally right next to the tube which was so nice after a long long long flight from Australia. Check in went well. I stayed with a friend in a 9 share room. It wasn't too bad. One thing that was kind of annoying is that we didn't have individual... More

I stayed in this hostel for three nights...it was very easy to find it, 'cause its located beside the Underground station Edgware Road (literally). No problems with check in and checkout. I shared the room of 24 beds, it's a lot of people, at least cool people. The breakfast was modest, we can't ask for more of hostel. The bathroom... More

This is a pretty standard above pub hostel with the only real communal area being in the actual pub. There was a lack of plug sockets in the room. Otherwise pleasant enough for a few nights in London, easy to access and right next to the tube station. Staff were pleasant but busy behind the bar serving normal customers.

I would never recommend this hostel to anyone!! We booked to stay 3 nights and couldn't even stay at the property this long! The images displayed on this website do not even nearly come close to a representation of this hostel!! We have been traveling for 2 months throughout Europe, this hostel was the most expensive we had stayed in... More

At first I was intended to stay por 4 nights (the 3rd week of July, in the second floor, room 1) in the hostel, but then I had to stay for an extra one, and it was not a problem at all. Everything was OK: beds were clean and comfortable, the toilette area was good too (even if almost all... More

Staff are pretty friendly. This hostel is not for everyone, if you are looking to make new friends and have some fun, then this place is for you. Room and toilets are reasonably clean, though it gets very crowded and noisy. Breakfast was acceptable. This place is not for fussy travellers. Overall not a bad place to stay in London.

We had long stopover in London, so we were looking for cheap hostel to overnight. Hostel is for good value, but is used mostly by teenagers looking for party. Expect noise at night, cleanliness is acceptable and in general hostel was OK. Pub downstairs is lovely. Staff very friendly. For me overnight was OK, but I would not use same... More
