  • Especially for the price paid, I was surprised to find that my room with 12 beds had 4 power outlets, all near the window and none at any of the beds (that I saw). Otherwise, good place with extensive general lounge areas, decently-priced food available to order, decent bathrooms and showers, and a lively atmosphere at the bar. Might stay again.

  • I was very happy with my stay, but a couple of remarks: When I first got there, someone else was sleeping in my bed. Turns out he was assigned the same bed as me. We figured it out, but it was extra effort/work for me when I was tired. A false fire alarm in the night, but that's not uncommon in hostels. Staff in reception were't the nicest I've met, but the security guys were great, and made us feel very safe! Would stay here again!

  • It would be nice if you have more rooms with private bath rooms or with double bed.

  • I am appalled to see that this was taken off my account when I did not even end up staying there on the night of the 8th October. I paid a deposit of £10.08 which I naturally took as being payable just in case I had to cancel. This is normally charged in case I have to cancel.I had to change my plans because my friend was travelling in by car and a central London location was notsuitable. Also there were poor reviews about the hotel on Trip Advisor.I feel that I have been harshly treated.
