this hostel is great, i stayed in a 10 person dorm room and the beds are set out with dividers and curtains so it feels very private. each bed also has its own powerpoint and shelf. also, biggest best lockers ive seen while travelling! I can fit ALL of my things in it easily and you can use any lock to secure it. Also great bar and reliable WIFI and really close to a Tube station. you may look at the location and think 'its not central' but in london it does not matter one bit. the tube is so fast and easy to use you can be in central london in moments. Dont pay 20 pounds a night for substandard hostels, just stay here. The staff are also always super friendly and keen to answer any questions that you may have. Lots of reviews have said that this hostel has a lot of long term guests and to avoid it. well it does have a lot of long term guests but i dont see how that is an issue, they are friendly and know london so they are always keen to give you tips on where to go.
