This is without a doubt the most disgusting hostel I've ever had the displeasure of visiting. Had to get clean laundry for the beds, mould on the walls, dirty room ( not been cleaned from previous guests). Some of the staff were friendly, but most were morons. Please - do not stay in this hostel. Surprised it's not been closed... More

I booked this place 8 months in advance purely because of the price and also before I read any reviews. After I read some I thought 'what have I done' but decided to be open minded and keep the booking. I only booked one night for a concert at Wembley and planned to spend the majority of time out or...

In a Dodgy area in front of a cemetery. There were no showers in the bathroom but instead in the bunk room in the corner. The doors didn't automatically lock which was worrying if i wasn't the last person out of the room. The staff were rude and came in to "remind" me i had to check out before 10am... More

We relocated to this hostel after our stay at a very pricey hostel in central London and we were looking forward to the prices. When we arrived, we didn't realize the conditions of this place. The mattresses and showers were appalling, the stench of the hallways was almost unbearable, and there is a massive cemetery in the back yard. Despite... More

This hostel is awful. Do you want something more specific? Well, I do not even know where to start. The clerk at the entrance handles the bookings in a "peculiar" way, writing everything in a big copybook. Hello!? Have you ever heard about computers? The prices change without warning: I was supposed to be paying 12£ per night but the... More

Where to begin? Dirty, kitchen is poorly equiped (doesn't even have a fork!) wifi isn't free and doesn't work even when you pay for it. Some guy just apeared in our room, he slept in my friends' bed! You can't lock the door, staff is terrible... There were gunshots in front of the hostel. Just stay away, doesn't matter how... More
