I stayed here for 4 nights. This was my first hostel experience and I was very happy with my stay. I was a solo traveler so I choose a dorm style, women only room. My roommates were all different ages from early 20's to older adults. I noticed lots of families staying here, as well as groups of travelers. I... More

I stayed here for three days with a school trip. The prices were reallt good compared to other hotels and hostels in the center of London. It is just 5-10 minutes of walking to Oxford Street. The hostel itself is small, neat and clean. The rooms are perfect for people who are planning to spend all day outside, you can... More

I was travelling on my own and needed somewhere reasonable to stay for a couple of nights in central London. This was the best priced place with great reviews so I decided to give it a go, even though I've never done the hostel thing before. I thought this hostel was fab!

Honestly never stayed in a hostel before and was a little hesitant about this place at first due to cleanliness and noise, but its really not as bad as people may think. It does look more spacious in pictures, and the rooms are quite tiny but you get what you pay for, and for this location in London, its very... More

I came here back in June after landing in England and a couple of days before going on my study abroad in Brighton. Given that this was my first stay at a hostel, I was a bit worried about the experience at a hostel. Rest assured, I could not have asked for a better place to stay in London. The... More

We are a family of 5 - 2 adults a teenager and 2 kids. Finding affordable accommodation in London for 5 is challenging if you're on a tight budget. And if you find a hotel that can squeeze you in one room - our last experience was awful. Either the hotels insist on you having to have two rooms and... More

I'm a big solo traveler and I always tend to end up traveling whenever and wherever it is scorching hot. The reason I mention this is if it is hot when you arriving I would not recommend this place without a room with and A/C(not sure if these are provided in many).

Hi, and thank you for your feedback. We're really sorry to hear the hostel didn't live up to your expectations. There was an issue with our water pipes that has now been repaired, so this may have been the cause of the noise. I'm sorry you felt our prices were too high, but I would argue that a room in...
