Great facilities, great staff, great location, great party atmosphere. I would not stay here if I was over 30. Or if you were looking for a quiet peaceful hostel (do they exist). For London it was also relatively cheap. Generator hostel was way more expensive but it seemed much the same. I had a room of 8 people and the... More

Do not get a 8 bunk room. It was soo small, there was no room to put my bags and was hard to breath in there at times. The showers were small and dirty and smelt like piss. The toilet in the room was even worse. Easily the worst hostel I've been to. The bar is very good and there... More

When I 1st booked a room at this hostel I did it for the same reason as the majority of people do because it was cheap!! And as such I had expected the quality of services to be very low. Well it was a very pleasent surprise indeed. My room was immaculately clean. The bed was just soo comfortable I... More

I've been dreading this one. I feel like doing paragraph-ish bullets so it won't FEEL like I'm doing a lot of typing. *The solo showers on the main level smells like pure piss. *I wasn't made aware that you had to request bottom bunks. *I fell off the top bunk mere minutes after getting up there. *The lady at the...

Noisiest hostel I've ever stayed in. The building is very cool, but they didn't spend any money on sound-proofing, have rooms on the same level as the bar/lounge, and expect guests to sleep with earplugs in.

The location is convenient, and the building is pretty cool. The common rooms have lots of character. Staff are friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the rooms are tiny, and the lockers in the rooms to store your personal belongings are also very small. If you are unlucky enough to get a room nearby the dining room, good luck sleeping past the... More

Hi there! Many thanks for taking your time and leaving your thoughts with us :) We are happy you liked our beautiful building and enjoyed its location! As for the other points, it is true that the lockers in the room are not big for all your personal belongings - that's why we have free lockers outside the rooms :)... More

Stayed here for a night in a 6 person dorm. The rooms were basic and small, with there not being a lot of room for bags. Given the low price of the dorm this didn't really bother me and the lack of space definitely contributed to that prison feel. If staying for more than a couple of nights I would... More

This hostel was better than I expected. For less than £70 a triple room en suite in London is pretty impressive. We entered with low expectations and were pleasantly surprised. The beds were perfectly comfortable, en suite was unexpected and there were coffee making facilities provided. We didn't try out the bar or any of the other hostel features as... More

A friend and I recently stayed in a private room with a shared bathroom. The room itself was small but fine for a night or two. It only had a tiny window though and there was no air flow, the room was like a hot box and we both had a terrible nights sleep, luckily we were only there for... More
