I got a bed in a 12-beds room and it was pretty cheap for London prices! You get a discount for drinks and food, we tried some burgers and they were really good!

The hostel was okay. Don't expect to get much sleep, the bunks are 3-beds high. The bathrooms were flooded or out of order everyday. There are weird charges like 20p for using the hair dryer or towels, etc. Other than that, it's nice. The pub downstairs offers friendly staff and good food with hostel discounts.

This hostel is very sympathetic, and it have a good space to spend time with our friends and drink some drinks. Very cozy. The breakfast is very nice and the people are very helpful. Está bem situado e dá para ir a pé até ao centro.

With 9 people in one room with three three-bunk beds is really crowded and not much space. Sitting in bed upright is not possible. There are only two toilets and two showers for everyone, which were not enough in the morning. Location and Discount/free Breakfast in the Pub downstairs is good. Hostel was very clean.

Stayed there for four nights, we had a great time. The Hostel is very central, you can reach most of the sights by walking. Toiletts could have been more clean, but overall the pub downstairs was fantastic and the staff as well. Special greetings to the bartender Daniel ! Thanks for a great time in London!!

The location is great, the staff is kind and helpful the atmosphere of the pub is excellent-we enjoyed the quiz night :) The food is also nice...
