  • The facilities are very narrow and way too small for so many people. It was not possible too lock away valuable things and there was no fire exit, which was especially dangerous, because the Hostels has got three etages and the steps are extremely narrow. The showers and toilets where dirty AMD There where not enough of Thema for all the people living there. The fridge was also dirty and no one Carey about the Fach that itnwas full of bags with old food.

  • 24hr reception is great, no problems checking in. Private room as requested, and we had our own bathroom. Location of hostel is great, close enough to main Camden markets but not close enough so as to be too noisy. Rooms are small enough but great value for the price. The breakfast included is great and there is a small garden out the back you can eat in.

  • Do not go. Dirty, loose security, noisy place. I couldn't sleep all the night.

  • It is an ok hostel. Not the best one that i've stayed in, but not the worst one as well. Nothing special about it.

  • Very cramped but quite good value for money & good location. Good kitchen facilities. Staff may seem a little impersonal at first but were helpful to me. Main criticism is that there seem to be only 2 toilets (that I was aware of) so don't get caught short! I met some v. nice & interesting people here & I would consider coming back.

  • This hostel was pretty terrible. Do not stay here if you care at all about cleanliness or good service. The bathrooms were disgusting ( beer bottles strewn around, tiny showers you can barely fit into). My room was okay and the bed was comfy enough however I was woken up at 6am to the sound of people who worked there talking and laughing. The staff have no respect for the costumers and they don't even pretend to. Yes, this place was cheap but I would rather pay a bit more.
