I've stayed in different hostels around the world and even when comparing to general level of hotels and hostels in London this was absolutely the worst place I've ever stayed in. There is only one good thing about this hostel and it's location - however you can choose something better on this are for sure. So why didn't we like...

The things that bothered me the most was that there was dirt on the floor on the sheets. Breakfast was poor and tasteless but I am Italian and this is normal told by an Italian and the staff was not as friendly as I thought it was. Sorry for my English

I stay in hostels all around the world and this must be one of the worst. What this hostel has done is try fit as many people as possible into the property and not worry about anything else. They compete on cost alone and it shows. Where to begin... - the staff are rude and every time you pass through...

The beds are small. They aren't made for long people. The bathrooms and toilets are clean. The stairs are steep and small. We had booked one dorm for 11 persons and the assistant manager agreed on that. After all he told us that he only has room for 10. After an long discussion we could get an agreement on an...

Recently stayed here for one night. Very friendly receptionists who were at 10 am already able to offer us a clean room. Unfortunately, when we came back there was something wrong with our toilet, which gave a very unpleasant smell. The receptionist immediately sent a colleague along which confirmed that there was something wrong with the toilet. We received directly...

Stayed a couple of nights and it did the job. Booked through Booking.com and no problems with processing booking, there's a tenner refundable deposit for the bed linen, so remember cash, 50p per day for safe or 1.50 for safe under bed...bargain! Small safe is big enough for a laptop and has charging socket. Free ear plugs are offered and...

So I have read so many comments (pretty nasty / scary / dislike ) on another website about the place, thus I was prepared to face the worse! But when I got there, the place was clean, decent, calm, friendly staff members and perfect location for a London vacation. Unlike all the bad comments written, this place is best value....

Arrived at the hostel which was great in terms of location, extremely close to the underground and park. Came to check in and was told to my surprise that we each had to pay a £10 deposit (I do not recall reading this on the booking website or on our reservation) and found that there were additional charges for luggage...
