  • It's basically in the middle of nowhere...very far from the centre. There are A LOT of stairs (and I mean A LOT) which sucks if you have a heavy bag. There are no elevators. There are no lockers in the rooms; they're located on one of the floors in a hallway and are very small. The room was large and spacious, and there were plenty of outlets which is a rarity in UK hostels. The whole place feels very crowded and is a bit of a maze.

  • The location is not good. A dirty neighborhood in east London. It's a 40 minute subway to Big Ben. The hostel itself is pretty old and dirty. There are always dirty dishes piled up in the kitchen. The worst mattress I ever slept on. It felt like it was just springs and wire covered by fabric.

    Hello. We are very sorry to read that you did not have a good time here. We have noted all of your comments and we will work to improve the hostel. Unfortunately we cannot do anything about the hostels location, but clearly inform guests before they book using maps and Hostelworlds location section. We encourage future guests to research before they book to avoid disappointment. However 40 minutes to central London is a very good time by London standards. Thanks again for the review, take care.
