In a word was unbelievable why people pay for a place like this and £11/night . Everything was dirty and the place look like an old asylum people better add another £10 and find a hotel or something different

The location is very close to the underground stop, the staff is friendly, the restaurant is comfortable, the rooms are quiet and are more or less what you can expect from a hostel. Really not bad at all.

I do not mind the location of the place nor do I mind if the shower is in the corner in the room. The worst things were there was absolutely NO WATER from the shower and the tap.

I stayed in this hostel for 2 nights. I reached there in the midnight and the hostel entrance was packed with youngsters which I assumed were staying there as well. The lady staff I dealt with was quite helpful but she was a little slow, hence I had to wait long to check in and to ask questions. They should... More

This hostel was the worst place I have ever stayed in. The staff were exceptionally rude and the hostel is about 30-40 minutes out of the centre of London making it very inconvenient to travel around. The rooms were small and dirty, no sheets apart from a doona and lumpy pillow. Steer well clear of this place, it is disgusting.... More

Rooms are dirty, the facilities are subpar. The shower is literally a cabinet in the corner of the room, offering no possibility for some privacy when drying yourself and changing. Even with this price, I expect more. Moreover, some of the staff needs to seriously work on their people skills. I had an issue with the internet and was met... More
