Far from the city centre, but right next to a tube station. Good bus connections too, and bus is a bit cheaper option than tube for those who have the time. A very good local attraction is the RAF Museum, which has a free admission nowadays! My dorm room was ok, a great thing was that there are plugs next... More

This place is cheap, and facilities are good. It's cleaned on a regular basis, and the staff is friendly and helpful. They also serve free beakfast every morning. It is, however, located far away from the action. It's about half an hour with the tube to Westminster. The metro station is located just down the street from the hostel, but... More

I came to London for a concert and stayed here for the night. The room was pretty small and very cramped. There are under bed lockers, but they are difficult to get out because the beds are so close together. The location is good - right by an underground station. Overall it is pretty standard for a hostel in London,... More

The place is great for young people travelling, is very clean and so close from the metro station! It's really worthy staying there, if you want you can even have a simple breakfast! When I stayed I went with my husband, and was very cool!

the hostel is located out of central london, however, getting to london is quick and accessible with the tube station across the road from the hostel, Taking approximately 20 minutes. Hostel is central to all shops, a mall, and large supermarkets. Inside is a fusion of blue and orange, free internet and wifi, but every now and again the internet... More

The hostel is not most central, but the Northern Line runs direct from St. Pancras and only takes about 20-25 minutes. Unfortunately, this is outside zones 1-2 so will cost you 50p more than your usual ride in the city center. On the other hand, the hostel is literally a minute by foot from the nearest tube station, making it... More

Ok so arrived late after an exhausting trip from India having pre-booked for myself & my partner to be in a 4 bed dorm together... Firstly, they had 'overbooked' therefore our beds were going to be in separate rooms...not too pleased with that, but got over it because all we wanted was sleep...had to pay in full, they charge if...

I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights in July. I came to the hostel dreading the 12-bed dorm, but I was pleasantly surprised by the unique 3-high bunks that offered personal charging points in each bunk as well as a light and curtain. The location, although a ways outside the city center, was great because it was as close... More

We enjoyed our stay here. This was my first hostel and I was a little nervous about it. We had a four dorm room for the three of us. The bunk beds were relatively comfortable, very clean but also very annoying since we kept smashing our heads. The provided breakfast was a good and cheap option. Staff were friendly and... More

I've stayed in plenty of hostels and this is one of the lamer ones. I mean, you'll get the typical hostel experience hanging out in the lounge and kitchen areas, but the place overall is lame. I was forced to stay here because I just arrived to London looking for housing as a Middlesex Uni student. As I will explain... More
