It is really OK if you can't go somewhere else... You take what you pay for. The staff is alright. When I arrived I thought they were quite rude, but they are really alright, quite cool and helpful. The place is quite dirty, but not unbearable. Breakfast is horrible, but eatable. The only huge problem is regarding the bathrooms: water...

There are two things that attracted my attention and made me choose this solution for my stay in London: the location, which is really nice and really close to the city centre, and the price, very very cheap. I guess that for the price you get what you pay for, but there are several things that with a minimum expense...

I can only imagine that the rooms upstairs were as good as they said, unfortunately I stayed in the room in the basement... they could improve the bathrooms and add more room for the bags in the rooms. Great location and really nice staff

Location, location, location. However... The kitchen is lacking in utensils. Please get some more. The rooms are too hot (not well-ventilated) and too crowded for the amount of beds that are in it. Beds are stacked three high, which can be scary if you're forced into the top bunk. If you're 6ft or taller, best of luck to you, you...

It was a small room, but all of the beds had curtains, so it felt like a little cave. 🙈 The placement was on the other hand fantastic! Everything just felt easy to find and get around! ☺️ An then I just love places with a free wifi and the possibility to actually have a locker!

This was the first hostel I stayed in London. The one good thing is the proximity to two tube stations (about 1 block away)this is the only plus. The rooms are substandard. The bunks stack 3 high and there is very little venilation. The showered run on 10 second timers. There is no venilation in the showers. The bathrooms are...

This place is cheap and for good reason. We booked two beds in a 8 room dorm well in advance for 11 nights. We arrived were given our keys, and after climbing 4 flights of stairs with our suitcases, discovered we had been placed in a 15 person dorm. About a week into our stay we came back to the...
