Clean bed linen, but a worn out old pub selling cheap frozen pizzas. Bathroom and toilet floors were swirling in urine . limp bread for breakfast. You should find better for the price. Tip: unlike other hostels, you pay more ( twice the price) for booking in advance! Use only as a last resort.

If you want to stay in central London cheap, safe and don't mind the sound of partying this is the place! Limited space, like at most places in London, this is situated on top of a pub. The bunk beds are of the three level type so you need to do a bit of climbing to reach the top bunk.... More

This technically is my local pub (although its also a hostel). Great selection of beers, pool table, jenga. Great staff (although if you get someone who's there just to earn some money on there travels then they can be a little slow at attending to customers). Pizzas are great too. Very well priced, would highly recommend to anyone in the... More

The staff was so friendly!!!! They have a beautiful bar that has candles going at night...it's very easy to meet locals as it is open to the community. It's a very low-key hostel, so it's easy to sleep at night and meet other travelers. The staff went above and beyond to help with questions.

We have been recived by Agne. We can't be more satisfied, the place, music, service and bar are great. Its a fantastic hostel if you want to have a very good time in London. Near everything, you cant be better. Great pizza and beer by the way. Best place ever!!

I stayed in the hostel for two nights in a room with 12 beds. The bedroom was simple and small, but clean. The service was good, the food was not too good, but ok. The toilets are quite clean, in front of the showers the floor was all wet, but I could also live with that. Although it is above... More

I stayed over on Monday while househunting in London. I arrived in the evening exhausted and the staff were really friendly and helpful getting me in and showing me the hostel. I had a pizza and a beer in the bar, the pizza was fine and the beer great. Hostel customers get a discount on drinks and free pool. Lots... More
