Me and a friend stayed at Hatter's for one night mid-November last year. Overall the hostel was good and we were both happy with the value. The hostel was easy to find and easily within walking distance from the Piccadilly station, as well as a lot the places we wanted to visit. We were too early to get our room keys, but the staff checked us in and gave us some excellent tips on what to do, which was really good since we only had two days to explore the city. There was a separate locked room, where we were allowed to leave our backpacks - basically a cloak room for bags. The communal area was nice and spacious, with free toast and tea/coffee, that we definitely took advantage of!
We stayed in a big dorm, which was very basic, but clean. The mattress was quite comfortable, but the duvet a bit thin, as the window next to my bed was open the whole night and the weather was definitely not warm. The open window also resulted in some noise and light from the street, but I still slept pretty well. Toilets were quite spacious but cold, quite well maintained as well. A few hooks for hanging your toiletries would be welcome. We didn't shower so can't comment on that. There were lockers downstairs, but I think they might have not been free?
Overall, not the most luxurious experience, but you get what you pay for - in a good way!
