  • The bathroom was really filthy. Plus, I had to share the room with a homeless guy. He entered the room in the middle of the night shooting. He wasn't agressive but had a weird behavior. Being a girl and a solo traveller, I hardly slept because I didn't feel safe. What I truly didn’t appreciate was the staff's reaction when I mentioned that I had been afraid all night long. They tried to make me feel guilty probably because they thought I was going to ask for a refund.

  • The hostel is a good value for super-expensive London. It's about a 20-minute Tube ride from the major sights, but that's not a problem at all, as there's a Tube station within a 1 minute walk of the hostel. The free breakfast was basic but well-appreciated, as it meant I didn't have to spend more money. My only quibble is the fact that the rooms are right over the bar, and even though the ceiling is well insulated, you can still hear some dulled out music from the bar below.

  • Very poor conditions in terms of shower and toilets. Not very friendly staff. Place smells in many parts and overall is not clean. Beds are very uncomfortable. If not for the price, I would not stay there and would not recommend it to anyone. Breakfast (included) is a joke. I am very dissatisfied.

  • Showers are very bad and not enough. Not every toilette you can wash your hand. Location is very good.

  • Very well located. Lots of pubs, coffee houses, subway station and other useful facilities around. Has a pub on the first floor, which for me is a bonus, but the stairs are the worst, mostly because the check-in is on the basement and the rooms are from the second floor up. Really didn't mind the security myself, but one girl in my room had her laptop stolen. The staff really tried to help her, but bottomline is, the laptop was missing. Not very clean, specially the bathrooms.

  • Great location near to tube stations and the city centre. Staff very helpful and obliging. Breakfasts very plentiful. Showers need a bit of working on, but it is an old building and I guess that the hostel company is on to this. Surrounding area a little bit sketchy, but you can resolve this by getting taxis back late at night. At all other times, walking from the tube station is fine.
