  • This hostel has a really weird atmosphere. Maybe it is due to their guests, but it does. People in dormitories have to share the same showers with people of another 4 floors, that is just crazy, especially because the lack of elevator. To get to the kitchen -which is shared with a bar, as weird as it sounds-, you have to go through a labyrinth.

  • Maybe fairly cheap for London, but still pretty expensive for what you get: musty underground rooms with no windows, a creaking and dripping air con you can't control yourself, only 2 showers for 13 rooms, and they charge you for a luggage room that anyone can just waltz into and take out anthing they want. Probaly won't be going there again.

  • 房間隔音很不好。 三樓全都為木頭地板,無論房內或房外所以動靜都聽得到,夜深人靜時更是宛如噪音。 床架很脆弱,只要翻身就會有聲響。 早餐是普通吐司搭配一般的果醬、奶油,水煮蛋及咖啡,非常普通。 有男性會跑到女生廁所,對了,在房間還聽得到廁所的聲音! 只有一樓的公共空間才能使用wifi。

  • This hostel was good for a nights stay, but longer that i would not recommend it. There were young teenagers staying at the hostel and running up and down the halls and even made the first alarm go off at 1am waking up and panicking the entire hostel. I know it's not their job to regulate, but they should limit who stays at this hostel as these children were very loud and disruptive.

  • Would defiantly stay in this place again, importantly rooms were very clean, while very small, could use some more storage space which could be attained by raising the bed enough for a suitcase to slid under. Location was excellent very central to London and very near tube and train stations. Many restaurants, quick healthy, and reasonable food choices. Internet did not work well but heard they were upgrading that soon.

  • The room (4 bed dorm) was small but we stayed there to see London so it didn't bother us at all. It was clean and the beds were suprisingly comfortable...100 points for that. There were safe deposit boxes for each guest but you should bring a mid-sized lock yourself if you don't want to rent one at the reception. So if you need a location to sleep and rest during your stay in London, with a nearby connection to the underground, we can recommend the Keystone House.
