Where do I start? My flight was severely delayed at Heathrow, contacted the hostel to let them know there was no way we were making check in at 11pm, would it be possible to check in at midnight. Nope check in closes at 11. Asked to speak to manger, changed the guys attitude completely. No toilet paper the entire stay,... More

The location and setting is great, although the bunk beds are stacked three high, they look like they've been thrown together with glue (scary) and the cleaning standards were appalling, no soap in bathrooms, and worst of all BEDBUGS, terrible infestation in room 1 where I stayed, PLEASE DONT RISK IT!

The place seemed okay at first, a little dirty but not bad. I woke up in the morning with 70 bed bug bites covering my entire body. I found a bed bug and brought it to the staff. They acted like it's a totally normal occurrence and seemed annoyed that I was complaining about it. When I asked to speak... More

The worst experience in sense of cleanliness and convenience for solo female traveller. I didnt expect Hilton due to cheap price and I didnt mind that hostel is dated, female showers were pretty dirty, drains full of hair, but what I REALLY were not happy with was BED BUGS. After 10 days I am still scratching! When I complaint next... More

I have stayed here for maybe a couple of months, leaving a few times for short trips but always coming back! I love this place! It has a really cosy bar and garden! A friend that came to stay with me said the bar with sofas reminded him of the TV series "Friends" :) Adorable staff! Included in the price... More

This place is a pub (that never has any customers) that happens to rent out the attic as a "hostel". Moreover, 70% of the people who stay here, are permanent residents. One Italian guy in my room has been here for three years! This is not a hostel, but a criminal housing scheme. Tripadvisor should ban this place from their... More

I was bitten by bugs! Shower=cold water, dirty. Some garbage on the floor. My friend forgot shower gel and gel was stolen at 2 minutes from shower. Kitchen= fridge, microwave. Never more! The blanket in Hyde park will be better!

I booked for two nights online to stay here, only to arrive at 11.30pm to be greeted with a sign notifying me that reception had closed at 11pm which left me stranded in an area I did not know. I had to make other arrangements to stay elsewhere costing me a lot of hassle and money at that time of... More

Awful.. way too dirty. A really small bedroom with 2 bunk beds with 3 beds, and all of them infested, more than that, they had mouse traps hided in some places of the room. The bathroom wasn't better. The only acceptable thing was the breakfast, although it was simple.
