Stayed in this hole for about 2 weeks, as I couldn't find any other hostel in the area. The only thing going for it, it's the nice bar but the vibe there is really miserable. Not very spacious and you have your 3 or 4 poor souls with their nose glued to a laptop/mobile phone. If you're looking for a... More

This place is OKAY. and that is really the best we can say, I think. The location isn't really near anything, although it isn't too difficult to bus. The bar is really run down and it really is in quite a sketchy area. It didn't seem dangerous per se, but we didn't go out at night- and I'm not sure... More

NEGATIVE (-) I stayed in this hostel with 3 friends for 3 nights. We booked only one room left, with 6 beds. But when we came, the receptionist told us that there was mistake and that he has to put us in two separated rooms. We tried to prove him how it's not right because we didn't get what we... More

No reply to 2 emails, 1 call in three answered. No smile or warm welcome on arrival. I stayed in room 101. Window glass broken. Two plug sockets to 6 beds. Bunks are 3 beds high, ladders are unsafe, nearly impossible to get down in the middle of the night for a pee. You can't sit up in your bunk.... More

The hostel was good value, very cheap for dorm beds in London. It was not greatly maintained, the wall brackets of all the shower heads were all broken and the bathrooms were quite dirty. The bunk beds were three high which made the room a bit cramped. On the plus side the staff were friendly and the breakfast was good,... More

The hostel was amazing, the staff (Vladek) was amazing, we hoped for a good time in London but thanks to this hostel and its people we had a blast and are coming back! Everything was clean and nice, beds were comfortable, no complaints and we felt safe

I was in the hostel around 3 weeks ago, stayed 5 days and had a wonderful experience! I've met a lot of interesting people from all parts of the world. Everyone was so friendly! The owner was really cool and the young man Vlad, who works there, was just amazing. He was so kind and offered his assistance at any... More

I am so coming back here next time I'm in London! Hostel is located a few bus stops from the Shepherd's Bush metro station and the buses drive all night and day. It is very easy to find, no trouble at all. The bar downstairs has cool beers, I really miss Kozel. Our room was on the first floor, next... More

I know some people complain, but this hostel is cheap and therefore not a hotel! Since I am not that picky, I was great for me - sure, it could be cleaner, but this is a hostel and there are many people staying there. All in all, YOU GET YOUR MONEY'S WORTH :D I stayed for 4 nights, had some... More

I would love to leave a nice review for this place because the people were so nice, but I can't. My friends and I stayed here about 3 weeks ago, and it wasn't so bad. The toilets were downstairs from our room, the sleeping areas were hot as balls and we didn't know a warm shower the whole time we... More
