Awful.. way too dirty. A really small bedroom with 2 bunk beds with 3 beds, and all of them infested, more than that, they had mouse traps hided in some places of the room. The bathroom wasn't better. The only acceptable thing was the breakfast, although it was simple.

We stayed 2 nights in their double room. It was cheaper than 2 dorm beds in other hostels, so I didn't expect too much comfort. Surprisingly the room was rather a small independent apartment stuck to the backwall of the pub in its garden. The furniture was basic, but creative and tasty. Bed was really comfy. It was hanging above... More

The Monkeys in the Trees: Bed bug infested. Huge bugs. No a one time thing as there were everywhere and huge ones. After having slept the first night in the hostel, we found there was a bed bug plague. They were everywhere, various sizes, some the size of my fist. There were six beds and we found the crawling in... More

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of august in a 6 bed female dorm. Everywhere could be doing with a lick of paint and the walls had mould in the corners of my room. Don't know how often the bathrooms and toilets get cleaned but they were pretty gross. Was difficult to have a shower as the shower... More

I've stayed at this hostel a few time when visiting London, the place has deteriorated for sure, once there was a kitchen with facilities etc and a TV room and more Working showers and more atmosphere...but now not so much...all about the £££

This place is very cheap, so don't expect any decent facilities. The kitchen is so poor as to be practically non existent - only a kettle and a microwave. Pretty poor breakfasts, and triple storey bunks make for reasonably uncomfortable nights' asleep. Further, the place smells a bit and isn't the cleanest. For the price, it's all good. Just don't...

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
