Me and my Girl friend stayed in this joyful hostel for 3 weeks. till Mistakenly we booked for wrong date. We realized when we reached to hostel. Unfortunately the hostel was fully booked. And we started to look for another hostel or any available accommodation to sleep even for one night. But fortunately the manager approached to us and found... 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

Although the hostel is really near the metro station and they have breakfast for £1,50 the place is not nice. Staff did not was very helpful related with needs I had. I needed internet when I arrived but they said I needed to buy a voucher and the cafe was already closed so no internet for me. The worst of... 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

If you want a story for the grandchildren, this is the place. Went there with a group of mates for a gig at Hyde park and Hostel 639 was a riot. I've never had the pleasure of going to Afghanistan but I imagine it wouldn't be far off this place. The website describes the hostel as having a 'Moroccan styled... More

At such a cheap rate it'd be fair to say that something's gotta give. Here, it was something as simple as soap. It took me 9 days, 4 floors and 4 bathrooms to finally find one with soap. The bed comfort level varies with a range of mattresses. Internet is not free and the signal is fairly weak. But the... More
