  • I stayed here while looking for housing in London and was very sad to leave. It's kind of out of the way, and yes, the security rigamarole is complicated, but if you're looking for atmosphere that isn't posh and manufactured, this is the place to go. Definitely a party hostel, and although it is located somewhat out of the center of London, it is in Zone 1/2 so it's easy to get anywhere you would want to go. Lovely travelers from all over the world, and free breakfast to talk to them over :)

  • If you want no frills accommodations this is a good choice. I enjoyed being in the Brixton neighborhood and with public transportation a short walk away getting to Central London and all the attractions wasn't a hassle. I would've enjoyed more modern conveniences and a better upkeep of the common areas such as the bathroom and the lounge area but overall I had a decent experience.
