I stayed here for 2 weeks last fall. I have limited experience w/hostels in Europe, so keep that in
mind. There were several aspects of this hostel that I appreciated. I met some really nice folks
who were staying here and most of the staff was helpful. The cacoon- stacked beds were
short (just long enough for me at 5'6") so my adult son was never really comfortable. There was
theft (maybe guest did not take adequate precautions) and the misery that causes. We were
each given a locked storage bin at our beds and I got no details on the expensive camera that went missing. I did not look at any of the other hostels in the area and there are many. The
location was very convenient to a wide range of restaurants, transportation and Hyde Park for walking. There are free breakfasts included in the price. Next time I will shop around more.

Room Tip: ask to see the room before signing up.

Our first stop in London to check rates. This was 2pounds more than the one up the street but I wish we would have stopped here for the first night. It didn't take long to move in the morning.!!!! The staff here were warm and friendly. The kitchen and tv room were downstairs and the computer room were on the small side for the amount of people. Met some great people here and would come back. Location to the tube and food stores was great.

Room Tip: Check the bathrooms first before you stay. The one up the street from here had roaches

There are some nice people working over there and putting their heart to keep this hostel working, however the place is behind the standards, specially for the place like London. this hostel is far far behind to reach the basic standards. Good to stay for one or two nights, but if you stay longer, there are better places for sure

Room Tip: Not recommend it

This was the worst Hostel I have stayed in throughout Europe. It was overpriced and with way too many beds put in each room. The staff was friendly, but didn't seem overly concerned with concerns that were happening. I was in a room with 20 other people and it was an extremely tight fit and hard to sleep with that many people coming in at every single hour. Everything was an extra add on, and so the overpriced hostel became even more expensive. The bathrooms were very small and not very clean. Redeeming factors are that the beds have a curtain to pull and make your personal space dark and the location is actually great. Very close to the underground and restaurants.

The hostel is good if you're just looking for a bed to sleep in. The area is very good, the underground station is behind the corner and there are many restaurants (also fast food) and markets around. The reception is not really friendly and you have to pay extra for many things you would get for free in other hostels. The cleanliness is ok.
