This hostel looks nothing like the pictures and is terrible! Really dirty and the showers smell like someone took a dump there and no soap in any of the bathrooms. The breakfast is bad and the man in the reception is really rude! Dont go there!!

Not terrible for a cheap hostel in London. Located close to the tube and London bridge station as well as borough market. Showers were very small and not super clean, also not many of them, so shower at weird times to avoid lines. Breakfast was your average hostel bfast. Staff was nice but not really helpful. Overall fine hostel, just... More

Best packing trip of my life. We stayed in Dover Castle, loved everybit of it. The Dorms were clean and people are quite friendly here. Stayed here for 3 nights. I is in close proximity to the Thames and London Bridge.. Over all it was a good experience..

I stayed there for one night, staff was very friendly and helpful. I was sharing a room with 10 other people, wasn't expecting all to be that nice and quiet on a friday night. Was a good experience, definitely would visit again.

The hostel is cheap if you book it in advance. Staff is friendly and excellent location, 10 min walk from London Bridge. In the room I stayed there was no wifi and quite cold during the night. Includes a (very) basic breakfast. A lot or shops nearby. It is an excellent option if you are traveling on budget.

I dont know why so many bad opinions. The hostel was very clean, the staff was nice, I didnot have to wait so long to use the shower, wifi worked rally good in the rooms, the hostel is in borough station, which is just 15 minutes to Westminister. So generaly speaking for the price it was really worth.
