We stayed in this hostel recently. We were initially expecting the worst because of previous reviews, but were pleasantly surprised. The hostel is kept very clean. The lication is very good, and honestly, given the price of accommodation in London, what do people expect. The staff on reception were excellent. The hostel was extremely busy, and these young girls coped... More

We stayed in a 8 dorm room, rooms are pretty small, you don't have much space when all 8 people are in the room. It wasn't very clean and it was very loud. Also we had a shower in a room which was just put in the room near the beds - very inconvenient. Our door was so loose that... More

Good for party time and nice people working there, but for 10 £ what do you expect? Tube is near and if you are with your crew it is ok. If you don't like it you have nice 5 star hotels in London. and about dirt and cockroaches it's Lindon and everithing is dirty like every big city! stop moaning

Although the staff in charge of the reception and security was nice and helpful, it looked quite diificult to get the propper number of towels or even the required beds! Fortunately we managed to get our caution back thanks to the understanding members of staff.

Didn't feel safe, seemed un-professional n un-organized, most of the people 'staying' there lived there permanently which seemed a bit odd to me, bathrooms stunk. Only good thing was the train station, was a minute walk from the front door. But not worth it and would definatly recommend paying that little bit more to stay somewhere else.

This is without a doubt the worse place I have ever stayed. Staying in a hostel you expect it to be basic but this was something else. Stepping off the tube we were hoping we weren't staying there - we were. A trip organised by our university. The first thing you notice is the smell. Lots of dodgy characters hanging... More

This was my worst experience in a hostel ever. It is an insult call this place a hostel, this is worst than sleep on the streets. I paid for a shared bedroom with 4 beds and they put me in a shared bedroom with 8 beds in a male dorm. The wi-fi is paid and the bathroom is really dirt.... More

The description says no smoking but people in this hostel drink and smoke all day and night, there is a bar attached but it's not like other bars in hostels this one all the paying guests can hear!!! The hashish smoking down outside by the guests can go on till early hours of the morning, once the guest has complained... More
