I really like this hostel for the location, friendly and helpful staff. I stayed in a private room with toilet along with my mom and sister. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable. The only bad thing was the shower, it would overflow and flood the toilet because the drain wasn't working properly. We didn't request to change rooms...

This hostel is well priced and in a great place in London if you want to go shopping so you got oxford st. not to far away and some great restaurants in the area. Not to far from the underground train so you can get from there any way. It was quite silence for an hostel in the city and...

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed at! It was super clean, I do think hostels in The UK have higher cleaning standards though. The staff were so friendly, always willing to help, it felt as if they were actually having fun while working which was nice to see. Breakfast I thought was a little pricey but actually...

Overall a really nice place with a nice friendly atmosphere. The facilities are plentiful, but things in this hostel are getting more and more damaged and no repairs are being done. I stayed in the same room as last year (coincidence), and the bathroom lock has become even more wonky and the tap even more leaky. I remember these problems...

The location is absolutely perfect, 5 min from Oxford Street and next to many tube and bus stops, but in a quiet enough street that you don't get any noise at night. The rooms and common areas are spotless clean, beds included. There's a kitcken with many fridges and shelves to store your food and they also have pizzas and...

Had a good one night stay here with two teenage sons during October half term. Very convenient for the centre of London and had everything we needed. Hiring towels was useful. Easy walk from the Euston too.

We are a family of 5- two adults and three children. We booked here because we are sick of squeezing into hotel rooms with not enough beds! We booked the 6 bed dorm with private bathroom. The room was basic- as you'd expect, and exactly as advertised. There were nightlights and plugs at every bed. We bought breakfast here one...
