The service was great and the food was good but the rooms are horrible. The lighting is bad and there is no jack near the beds. The bathroom is also horrible, we do not have privacy. good location and good price.

Very nice place & nice staff ! The room was clean, beds were confortable. The atmosphere was nice, and the location is optimal if you want to visit the city (near a metro station & bus stops). I would highly recommend.

The hostel 's entrance is a nice pub, but the food is poor compared to the price. Rooms are awful, small and dirty. For what they offer, definitely expensive. If I had the chance to have a look before, I' d surely look for another place to stay.

The staff was very friendly and kind. I always stopped at the pub for a beer. Rooms and bathroom were clean. The hostel is close to Lambeth north (bus line going straight to piccadilly circus). Neighbourhood is quiet and calm. I recommend

I came in and immediately misplaced my wallet and phone. Luckily, the staff (and fellow guests) were nothing but honest and helpful. Service was good and accommodations were tight but clean. Shower could use some more heat & temperature.

The location is excellent. Very near to underground station and buses. Confortable hostel and very cheap. The wifi conection was very weak. I would recommend this place to anyone. The pub was excellent, it serves good food and drinks.

Definitely was pleasantly surprised by how clean and nice this hostel was! The staff was friendly and helpful as well. They are open 24 hours so that was nice when traveling. My friend and I stayed there together and had a great experience.
