“No amenities, rude staff”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

This was the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. I've stayed in some crap places but at least the staff was polite and helpful. These guys were rude to us and all of the guests. "Breakfast" is toast and watered down orange juice. The room, the bathrooms, and the showers were gross. They charged for maps! Maps they get for free. And a towel rental is 5 GBP. 5! The only benefit is that it is in zone 1 and near a tube stop. But still it's not in walking distance of anything. The neighborhood is a bit sketchy and everything closes really early.

Me and 5 friends stayed at this hostel nye and literally had the funniest night we paid pennies for a nights sleep. booking her on the cheap your not going to get 5* so god knows why there are bad reviews you get what you pay for. plus so many joke. we're from england and when we stayed it was obviously a crazy night everyone was from abroad experiencing london on nye and we had the funniest time. talking to people from all over the place.

our room was over booked and we had the best time scheming with the staff to find out who was over staying there welcome in our room, by 7am we had caught them. we had no sleep but watching the girl do the walk of shame was great!
we were in a 10 bed room other were other people and we stayed up all night having the best time!

ive never had more fun on a night out in london.
for a cheap place to have laughs and jokes just go its really not that bad

You can find a better hostel in the same area for less money.
The kitchen and the bathroom are very dirty and cold!!!
In the night time is impossible to sleep because people make a lot of noising....cleaners come inside the room in the morning time, they don't mind if you are sleeping, they switch on the light, over,and they open the windows ...
They told me that the chipper room available it was a 10 bed room for 21 proud per night but it wasn't true because a couple of hours later they sell a room for 75 pounds per week
So very bad service

The bathroons were a [--], and one person through mt girlfriend' bag out of her bad! It was a freak stuff! We arrived from the reveillon party night and saw a message written by a french person and a mess in the bed.. Terrible experience...

Seedy, gross, and in a major need of a makeover. They charge for everything. I was also billed for a deposit without being told. Placed in a room with 20 guys (not that I have a problem with rooming with men, but really?) Checked out early (with a partial refund) and never looked back.

Stayed here during the Olympics. We were desperate for a place to stay as we hadn't booked in advance and EVERYTHING in town was booked -- except this place (now we know why).
It was incredibly overpriced (but then again everything was during the Games) and generally just a sketchy place. Management had conflicting stories - one even tried to have us pay 2 quid just to use the washroom! We were told by a different staff member that that is not a policy. You get a bad vibe as soon as you walk in the place. It is in SERIOUS need of renovation. We did not feel comfortable leaving our bags there. We had triple bunk beds in our rooms. NOT clean. Was very wary of sleeping there because I can't imagine it NOT having bed bugs.
We lied our way out of the rest of the stay - said a family member died. Dramatic, I know. But seriously. We were not spending 2 more nights in that hell hole.
IT IS NOT WORTH THE CHEAPER PRICE. Trust me.
