I came to London without a place to stay, so a friend told me about this hostel, then I went there, the staff is ridiculous and very rude, the rooms are always dirty, but because it's a cheap place it's always crowded so it's good to you to find and meet some new people around there, a very hot chicks...

I've stayed here for 3 nights and they were the worst three nights of my life, at least for my nose. I couldn't breathe because of the smell. But the main problem was the shower. It was in the room. And I was sleeping with 6 other guys. So I didn't have privacy. The great thing about this hostel (the... More

I stayed in this hostel two times. It is definitely the cheapest accommodation in London, but expect nothing from it! Not at all kept tidy, very old and smelly. Broken windows in rooms. Beds of questionable quality. Disgusting toilets. Don't bother with their breakfast even if it's included in the price. Just have a fry-up elsewhere. Location is quite OK... More

this place is awful, in fact that's too nice of a word to use. We arrived to find the receptionist having a row with a guest, she told us to wait in the lounge area. Once she was free she decided she was going on a fag break and couldn't be bothered to check us in. When we challenged this... More

I stayed here for one night because it was the cheapest hostel in the area. You get what you pay for is definitely the best way to describe it. Disgusting. Initial appearances seemed ok but then I went to my room... the people in the room seemed to be LIVING there, as in long term living there not just a... More

Although some people say "value for money", I won't recommend this hostel. Why? 1. Although it's cheap, the receptionist should provide a good service with a good smile. 2. Toilet is dirty and sometime no toilet paper inside the toilet. 3. The kitchen is dirty. However, the hostel is nearby the metro station and the bus stand. You can take... More
