The best aspect of this hostel was how clean it was, the breakfast could definitely be improved but we cannot fault the service, we would love to come back and stay here in London again, We won't forget this hostel on our travels!

The room was very noisy from traffic outside and also people coming out of a nearby pub and talking very loudly. You couldn't leave a window open and even when it was shut it was still too noisy. Perhaps when it is older people staying, they can be put in rooms away from the main road.

We were staying in the basement room 008. this room was so crampy that even if I 'am not claustrophobic, i didn't feel good in there: almost no natural light, fixed window, the noise of the underground every 2 minutes all night long and the clapping corridor door. We didn't get any sleep.

Great, clean hostel. Not as many toilets/showers as other hostels I have stayed. Remember to reserve a bunk bed online before arriving if you are fussed about a bottom(or top) bunk. Like other hostels I the YHA chain no wifi in rooms, only in common area (downstairs and basement).

One of the best hostel I have stay in, very friendly and helpful staff, brilliant location, within walking to any tube station lovely park 10 min away, the catering kitchen was brilliant and there was supermarket not far from the hostel but I would recommend you bring your own food much cheaper

Our family stayed in a room four, and largely had a positive experience with a clean room. The cons: The shower/bathroom is a bit tiny, and the glass shelf angled enough not to actually hold any toiletries. The elevator painfully slow. The pros: The staff was pleasant, the activities (seeing a show, burger night) inexpensive and nice (although communication regarding...
