  • WONDERFUL staff that helped me with heaps of stuff when I lost my wallet on a night bus. I am so grateful, thank you! Found the wallet on the floor of the bus we took a little while later, with money and cards all remaining.Guy in the reception(night between 10th-11th of Feb 2015), you made my trip. Would have sent you flowers if I could. Also, the location is fab and all you can eat Corn flakes aint that bad for a free breakfast. I will definitely stay here next time I hear London calling!

  • Traumatised by someone who peed all over his bed in both bathrooms and everywhere on the floor, and the violence from the intervenance of a security guard on him on the only night i stayed. Horrible: never take a bedroom of 20 places, i met really great people, the only thing is nothing was clean and i didn't feel secure.

  • The reason this review is not a positive one is that guests had to pay for Internet (which is extremely silly). The continental 'breakfast' was white bread and instant coffee. When asking for advise on where to go to eat, etc, the staff had no clue - provided zero assistance. The ensuite restroom was never cleaned beyond throwing down a new towel outside the shower, further the room itself was never cleaned either. There weren't any lockers to protect your belongings in the rooms.

  • I walked in to this hostel hoping that I was in the wrong building. Once I got to my room, I literally cried. There was a smell that was emanating from the bathroom. I compared the pictures online and noticed that the pictures don't look like the actual hostel. I think it's very deceiving on the hostels part to put pictures up of a hostel that looks nothing like the one I stayed in. The hostel is so disgusting, there's mold in the bathrooms, they don't clean as often.

  • You need to pay for everything. No free WiFi. Breakfast is poor. Elevator is not working and nobody is going to fix it.

  • There were some big insects in our room. The lights in the bathroom were disfonctionnal. The showerhead fell twice and needed to be replaced. We told the staff and they apologized and replaced it. The housekeeper entered the room without knocking on the door. People were running in the corridors and shouting. Very noisy.
