What I was looking for was: a comfortable bed, a clean shower and a decent breakfast. I got all of that for £11 in central London, which is way more than I was expecting. The rooms might be a look a bit crowded, I was in a 9bed dorm with 3-tiers bunk beds, but the curtain is brilliant for extra privacy. It was great for one night and the staff was friendly. For a longer stay I would recommend it to younger people (let's say...late teens, early 20s).
Showers are in the basement and they're provided with lockers. To get there you have to walk through the living room or a maze of corridors, so think twice before heading out in towel and flipflop attire :)
