  • The location is amazing. Only 30 minute walk into the city and right in the middle of trendy Shoreditch. The reception however, as well the kitchen and courtyard is very small and with the amount of people that frequent the hostel, it can become quite packed easily. It is also the first hostel where we had food stolen from us, for the storage facilities were horribly and the kitchen was constantly unclean and smelt horrid. The staff were constantly having fights with management.

  • Nice neighborhood, but a little far from "the center". Wi-fi doesn't work well =/ Kitchen most of time full os dirty dishes, but other parts clean and well equipped. There are big boxes below the beds where you can organize your stuff and lock it, very good!

  • Standard Hostel at an excellent location, nothing to complain - it's a hostel, not a hotel :-) Tip: Bring your own lock for your box underneath the beds.
