the hostel is clean and comfy. The staff was very helpful. Breakfast was provided every morning in the pub, which was really nice. There is a bus stop just front of the hostel, which is 20-25 mins away from central London. And it`s 15 mins walking distance to clapham junction station, which was convenient to use.

The pub has a pleasant and welcoming feel to it. The facilities were decent. The beds were uncomfortable, mainly due to the mattresses and the room didn't have heating. Staff was friendly. The area was good and safe.

Yes it was genuinely very very good. Theres some lovely Ladies behind the bar. The food is good value for guests and theres even a free breakfast. Theres good security and theres even a common room for guests to chill out rather than in the bar.

The Hostel is very dated And simple. Rooms/toilets/showers were dirty And broken. Wifi was bad for the first two days. Breakfast is early (7-9) And consits of toast, jam And cereal. Really basic. Staff wasn't very social, some didn't even say hello. Overal dissapointing, But however the hostel is really cheap as well. The bar downstairs looks pretty though.

Pretty much hated this place upon arrival. The room itself is right on a busy main road and the windows are very ineffective at keeping any noise out, this also meant they were ineffective at keeping any cold out and the heating was most definitely not on. I sat on my bunk and didn't even remove my jacket for the...

“Some bedrooms have 3 beds but I also stayed in a room with 18 beds, and it is very bad because people snore a lot, others stink and I saw 3 persons envolved in sexual activities so tey changed me for a smaller room which was alright until a new guy went there and woke up us making sounds while touching himself and making the bed shake. I think the beds and rooms were all right for an hostel but there should be more bedrooms and bathrooms just for girls and boys and more rooms just fr girls. The hostel is all right, some people not so much, you have to be lucky with the people who get in your room.”
