I stayed here for 3 nights, and honestly it was worth the money.
The location is amazing, you're a few minutes away from the underground, bus station, pubs, bars, restaurants, fast food places that are all open past midnight.
In the description it says that it has a bar. Now, downstairs there was a common area (in the mornings for breakfast) and next to the common area there was *the bar*.
Note that this bar had no alcohol, only soft drinks and muffins. So that is misleading, but the bars and pubs in the area fix that.
The hostel is also very strict. For some this may be good, for some not. For example, after a certain hour, you weren't allowed to drink/bring alcohol in the hostel. You were also not allowed to eat in the rooms, that didn't stop my 2 roommates from actually ''cooking'' in there (electric stove and everything!).
Past 22 o'clock there is a doorman, who checks every person who goes in, he asks for your keycard, so people who aren't guests may not come in. (Again inconvenient if you invite a friend over, even if it's just to have a talk in the common area.)
But for the first night, I was there on my own, and these restrictions made me feel safer. (The drinking and doorman, not the eating.)
Overal, the staff is okay, it is okay clean, the bathroom is tiny, breakfast is very basic, the location is SUPERB, and it really is value for money. I highly recommend it to friends who are on a budget, but still want to close to everything, and to solo travellers.
