OMG. I have never been to London and it was the worst experience in my life. If you don't care about people that are there or if you don't care to share you room with a football team (huajaiaji) .... Don't go this place.... Never But if you don't care about that. I would say 5 stars

the dorm is terrible and so are the showers, there are no windows and it's really warm, it's a little suffocating actually but the location makes up for it, if you are not staying long and you'll be ouside most of the time it's a good place.

Excellent location, probably the most economical place to stay in central London, 5 minutes from Thames & London Eye. Very basic though. Dorms are ok, but the bathrooms stink. Breakfast is again very basic, but filling, as much tea coffee thruout the day. U can bring in your own food to cook/reheat, grab a beer & relax. Free wi-fi.Nothing great... More

Two nights in this hostel. Smelly dorm, limited number of toilets, broken showers, laid-back staff. In the middle of the second night, there were some men talking/chatting/knocking at the dorm next to ours. It is the most expensive hostel I stayed in London (out of 5) but with poorest hygiene quality, staff professionalism.

Located some 7 minutes' walk from underground station 'Lambeth North', the 'London Eye' really fulfills only very basic needs. The nicest part about it is the lobby - with two cozy couches and a TV screen in a spacious, welcoming area, it seems to be a very hospitable place - and it kind of is (a guy who didn't get... More

It is continent for people to stay if you are alone or you wan to save money. However, male and female live in the same room and you have to prepare your own staff. There is free WiFi in the lobby but the public computer is very slow.
