This Hostel is near to Edgware Road and Marylebone Tube Stations. It is a good place to stay if you want to go out to walk and know some of London. I was on a room with 2 bed bunks, it was very nice, and it was Internet Free Access too. From this location I was walking to Hyde Park... More

Close to Edgeware Road tube station, above a pub and cheap. It ticked all our boxes for a trip to london on the cheap. We booked the 9 bed dorm which had everyone's favourite 3bed bunks! Not to worry though it was only one night. Clean sheet, duvet cover and pillowcase was handed to us upon check in- which is... More

We were looking for a low cost hostel in London, I think we found it :) After the prices, I didn't expect too much from the rooms, and I get what I expected :) The best thing is the location of the hostel. It is really close to the public transport lines. We stayed in the room only for sleeping,... More

I know I wouldn't be staying in a 5 star hotel, but what I saw here was beyond the limit! I've stayed in different hostels around Europe and I can say this is the worst hostel I've ever stayed! There is a pub downstairs, you might find it quite convenient for a quick drink but after a long day of... More

After we found out our original hotel had been closed for about two weeks we went for a pint in the Brazen Head to evaluate our options. The barman over heard us talking about our predicament and couldn't do enough for us. He knocked 15 pounds of the listed price, gave us extra padlocks for free, got all three of... More

We stayed 2 nights in the 2 bed dorm, pub below was great all staff were very helpful. The bunk bed was a little rocky but clean sheets, clean room bathrooms are a little dated but cleaned daily. As the title says you get what you pay, we had a cheap weekend in London, so wasn't expecting the Ritz. I... More

Positive:The place was at a good location and also a very nearby stop for Easybus (and others) to Luton airport; the staff was very friendly. The rooms were very cheap indeed but that comes at a price.... Negative:Dust in the room, and floor was dirty; no isolation on our window (and it was very cold); beds make an awful noise... More

The worst hostel i've ever been! The only one good thing is very friendly staff and it's location near Baker street buses to airports, All written before by others is a holy truth! Dirt, impossible to take a bath, worst beds ever, cold etc. Keep away from it!

I stayed in this hostel from 24-28th September, with two friends. Before i decided to book this hostel i read some really scary reviews, but then still decided to book it because of the location and mostly because of the price. We were accommodated in a 4-bed room. there were 2 bunk beds,they were really squeaky and the beds were... More
