We were in a room with 15 (if I remember correctly!) beds. It was very dark and crowded by I can't really complain. It was a good place to stay if you were visiting the city for the whole day. Beds were ok (we found few black hairs in our sheets though. And we both are blond.) but bring earplugs... More

The hostel is ok. It is clean, breakfast fine. It is really far from the center, the overground travel is long and exausting. If you are tired after a day of walking in the center you gonna regret you choise, even it being the cheapest one. But what bother me the most was the shower. There were just three for... More

If you're looking for a hostel near London, this is not the place for you. It is not centrally located and takes about 30 mins to get to the center of London by train. If you're looking for a fun environment to meet other young travelers this is not the place for you as the majority of the people that... More

This was the first hostel I've ever stayed at. I stayed there for 3 nights and it was OK. + Big kitchen + Nice location, everything necessary nearby. But if you're more a nightclub person and want to experience more central London stuff, then this is not the place for you. + Pool table, lots of movies, free breakfast

It's good hostel to stay there until 2 days. The kitchen is too small and there's no enough space for everybody. The bedrooms are warm and the staff did not clean the bedrooms. You have to do the dishes.The location is good near subways and bus parade.

Despite being located quite a distance from central London, the hostel is situated directly outside Hendon Central station so it is really quite convenient. Staff at the reception were really friendly and helpful. Instructions were explained in detail and they were more than willing to answer any questions. Opted to stay... More
