The rooms themselves are basic but fine for the price. The bathroom was cleanish. However... If you want somewhere secure, do not stay here. A previous tenant let himself into our room having 'lost' his key and not given it back on checkout. Nothing quite like having to fetch security to turf a random guy out of your bed for... More

Our first impressions was that it smelt of a rancid dog smell. Then it soon came to my attention that there was dirty stain marks on the curtains and on the bedding! I then soon came to realise the shower had an awful revolting smell to it! The toilets were absolutely awful! Surprised we didn't catch anything! EW!!! DISGUSTING!!! as... More

You really get what you pay for. This hostel is very cheap, and London is a very expensive city. It's ok, if you have ever experienced sleeping in a tent not only for a night, but if you prefere to feel confortable do not choose this one, because the quality is almost the same.

Don't book here! I know it's cheap but do not be tempted. We stayed in a twin room upstairs and it's a good job we were absolutely exhausted because there is no way we would have slept otherwise. It didn't feel safe with awful looking people hanging around reception. Constant banging of the door next to our room. Constant walking... More

Very close to station. Near to one or two nice pubs.But generally you're out in the suburbs away from central, with not a lot around you. So cheap and you're right by the station. Some great pubs in the area. Me and my girlfriend had a double room. I checked in early and left our bags which were locked away... More

You really do get what you pay for when it comes to Hostels. This is a perfectly adequate hostel. It's fairly noisy as it's on a main road but for an overnight stay in central London this is fairly good value for money. Again, you get what you pay for!

I've spend a night at the 639 hostel with my friend and it was definitely better than expected. The staff was friendly and our dorm room (4 female) was okay and the shower seemed clean. The downside was, that the bathroom with the toilets didn't seem really inviting and it was incredibly loud. With earplugs you can easily spend a... More
