I spent 5 nights at this hostel and I can say it is fantastic. The room wasn t so big,but it was spotless. The kitchen well equipped, you have everything you need. Staff friendly and helpful. Perfect and strategic position. Well appointed. the only downside weak wifi at the peak hours. Recommended

The hostel was overall okay, however.. the rooms are tiny (barely enough standing space) and the bathroom in our private room had no drainage for the shower.. so water got everywhere and then was trekked into the rest of the room. Other then the "adequate" rooms... the lounge/communal area was quite nice. Very friendly environment and the wifi was good... More

Rooms are clean, beds were really comfortable and the bed linen was already prepared. (Good for me, I am usually overstrained with sheets and... More

This is a little gem in the heart of London. Place is spotless. You can cook your own food you will feel like home. Most of the staff are friendly but Laura is super super friendly the best staff I give her 10 out of 10. She give the place life and soul.

Me and my friend have stayed here for 3 nights. It's a cheap alternative of you don't bother sleeping with other people of your same sex! The hostel is pretty clean, there is a beauty room with hairdryers and washing machines, a huge kitchen and a luggage room. The staff is so nice and always available.

This hostel is well run, but u get the feeling they have a high staff turnover. There seemed to always be someone learning... Not a bad thing - but can be very time wasting for both parties.... Clientele age varied very widely, I'm so glad we weren't in near a room with the crying baby.... Lots of people - not... More

The staff at the front desk were super helpful and could answer most of our questions and if they couldn't... More
