This is a perfect hostel for any first-time solo traveller. It is clean and well maintained, with friendly staff that are kind and helpful (big thank you to Leigh especially!). It is in a fantastic location, right off Oxford Street and within walking distance to Westminster, Piccadilly, Regent Street and more. Plus, it is in a safe area, and I... More

This hostel is right off Oxford street in soho...basically the best area! There are pubs on pretty much every corner and shopping right there as well. The tube stop is close. The staff is awesome. Leigh and Julian and Steven were absolutely fantastic. They were helpful at directions/suggestions of things to do and were friendly all the time. I also... More

Right in the middle of London this youth hostel does what youth hostels do best. Provides simple but clean and friendly service for those on a restricted budget. It might be a little squishy but everything is small in the city.

What a great place. Had a private modest but everything you needed (2 person) room. Toilet and shower right across from room (single not group toilets or showers). Kitchen facility easy to access as well as the lounge and eating area. Lots of room in the fridges, all the cooking dishes and utensils that you might need, three sinks to... More

Our stay here was comfortable and the convenient location meant we were close to shops, restaurants, cafes, convenience stores and transport. The staff were friendly and the common area was spacious with good decor. Very reasonable prices considering you are in the heart of London. Only downside was that the rooms and bathrooms, whilst clean, were tired looking and could... More

I stayed here in a private room for a couple of nights in October 2013 after spendign a few weeks travelling through Italy. The location is absolutely fantastic - just steps from Oxford St and a great base in which to go anywhere in the city as the Underground is so close. Room was clean and modern and the showers...

Just off Oxford Street, really close to the Oxford Circus tube station the hostel couldn't be more centrally located. The dorms themselves are simple with lockers available to store your belongings (bring your own padlock!). One thing though, the dorms can get unbearably warm during summer - no aircon, only a tiny fan which can't move and opening the window... More

The hostel is in a perfect location, only a short walk from the tube and the main attractions London has to offer. The staff are all very friendly and more than happy to help with numerous bookings and tips to get the most out of your stay. The private double bed room we stayed in was cosy and practical, however... More

A return visit to by far the best Hostel I've used in London. Very clean with friendly staff and decent showers. Your own electricity socks by your bed is a major plus too. I was surprised to find shampoo provided in the showers, great as I'd forgotten mine and thought I'd have to make a soggy trek back to the... More

This place was pretty great value because of its location. It was so easy to get to many places by metro because of its central location. It was really close to Oxford Circus station and Tottenheim station which connect to 2 different lines. It was nice that the gay village was really close. It was a a few minutes walk... More
