After ringing the place to find out if it was suitable for the type of students we were bringing they said yes, I wouldn't stay there... More

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
