    Staff were unfriendly from the moment we walked in. Wi-Fi was terrible. Room was a decent size but bathroom and walls were mouldy. Good location for public transport. Best thing was the bar in the hostel that served western food and imported beer.

    I was a little loft, 2 beds downstairs and a double bed upstairs, it was clean. Close to the tube, shops and food markets/convenience stores. Staff spoke little or no English and were not very welcoming or talkative. We had a nice stay overall.
