  • The good thing about this hostel is its price. It is one of the cheapest in London, at least at the time of our trip. However, we would've gladly paid more money to not to be in hostel. During our stay, the dormitories were dominated by long term residents, which posed some problems. Furthermore, the bathrooms were only somewhat functional and also dirty constantly. The downstairs bar area was nice, but that was the only decent place in the hostel. The hostel is not close to a metro.

  • The staff is awesome! Congratulations! They are very helpful and always at your disposal. The owner is often in the Hostel so he assures that everything is taking care. The ambient and the vibe in the common room (also a Public House) are excellent.

  • it took around a half an hr walk to get there from the nearest train station, the bathrooms had mold in them, the blankets provided were very small, and it did not help that the people who were staying in the room were screaming at each other at 4 in the morning.

  • It was a nice place with a small pub underneath for a good beer. The internet barely made it up to my room on the 2nd floor, but still worked very well. The breakfast was normal level and I liked the staff, super nice. I didn't like the location too much, it was a bit difficult to get to bigger train stations and bus stops for the flying back out, but not the end of the world. I did have some mysterious bites the 1st night but they changed the sheets and the problem was solved luckily.
