London is not famous for awesome hostels but this one is not even half acceptable. Just to name a few things: there was a mouse in our dorm, i went to let the receptionist know and said i don't want to cause trouble but maybe they should do something about it. Of course nothing was done, he didn't even offer... More

If you're feeling optimistic about this hostel and still think that all the comments are exagerated, well please change your.mind! The pictures are a euphemism of the actual state of the hostel! Zone 2 is far from the city center! You'll just end up spending your money on transport rather than on a descent place to sleep! Rooms are tiny,... More

Trust all bad reviews about this hostel and try to find a better one! The atmophere is terrible. The rooms were filthy. The toilets are also filthy and to small. The staffs are rude and unhelpful. The lockers are too small. I'll never come back here.

The hostel is decent. The bunk beds are small and stacked three high. There were 15 people in the room i stayed in. It was pretty packed, but at the same time easy to meet people. We went out a few nights with people we met from our room. The bathroom is small, so are the lockers. The staff was... More

The room was extremely small and crowded, hardly any space to turn around, I could pack my luggage only in the corridor at the lockers room, and the (common) bathroom is very small too. Really just a bed, do not expect any private place. Not really clean, but neither awful. However the main hall is atmospheric, you get a locker... More

First of all it's not bunk beds they have..there is 3 beds bottom(on the ground) middle and top (way too high and difficult getting up and down) you wouldn't want to be big because the mattress is very narrow and thin. Secondly , went to take a shower NO WATER!, ..supposedly this is a common problem, not even in the... More

This place is good if you have low standards and aren't staying for too long. I stayed for 4 nights I believe (which was too long) but for 10 euros a night I couldn't complain. Breakfast was cereal, coffee/tea, and toast, which was more than I got at my last hostel so I was thankful for that! The rooms however... More

I visited here for a convention as I was press and it was the cheapest option available at the time. My friend and I arrived and while the atmosphere of the other guests was very pleasant, I felt that I had still spent too much money for what it was worth. The place was dingy and dirty and the fact... More
