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...

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...

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.

We stayed 2 nights in their double room. It was cheaper than 2 dorm beds in other hostels, so I didn't expect too much comfort. Surprisingly the room was rather a small independent apartment stuck to the backwall of the pub in its garden. The furniture was basic, but creative and tasty. Bed was really comfy. It was hanging above...

The Monkeys in the Trees: Bed bug infested. Huge bugs. No a one time thing as there were everywhere and huge ones. After having slept the first night in the hostel, we found there was a bed bug plague. They were everywhere, various sizes, some the size of my fist. There were six beds and we found the crawling in...

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of august in a 6 bed female dorm. Everywhere could be doing with a lick of paint and the walls had mould in the corners of my room. Don't know how often the bathrooms and toilets get cleaned but they were pretty gross. Was difficult to have a shower as the shower...

I've stayed at this hostel a few time when visiting London, the place has deteriorated for sure, once there was a kitchen with facilities etc and a TV room and more Working showers and more atmosphere...but now not so much...all about the £££

This place is very cheap, so don't expect any decent facilities. The kitchen is so poor as to be practically non existent - only a kettle and a microwave. Pretty poor breakfasts, and triple storey bunks make for reasonably uncomfortable nights' asleep. Further, the place smells a bit and isn't the cleanest. For the price, it's all good. Just don't...
