This was my first time in a youth hostel and before I was in London I checked the reviews from this hostel. Some of them were very disgusting so I thought it would be disgusting.
But our room was just renovated, so we had a nice, clean room with a minifridge (we were lucky, because most of the other rooms on our floor didn't have a minifridge). And most of the other rooms I saw were old and a little dirty. The bathrooms for men and women are separated, but shared with everybody who stays at your floor too. Sometimes they are a little dirty and smell awful, but most of the time they are clean. It is a central location, close to the Tube, supermarkets, etc.
Finally, the Canadian guys who stayed at our floor were very nice, just like the staff...
