Me and my friend stayed here for 2 nights. Wasn't the best, the room we stayed in was a mixed dorm, no plugs, was a bit noisy at times, too warm. Shower and toilet facilities weren't that great either, very very basic. I guess if you're just there for a short stay and nothing else then it's cheap and easy...

Our private bedroom was clearly inconfortable, not enough clean and too small. No towel, no coat rack, no place to put our clothes. The beds (one over the other) were inconfortable and noisy. The door of the bedroom was broken and did'nt close correctly. Bathroom was not very clean and in poor condition. No shower working at our level. This...

My experience was just fine. I believe the place is nice and as you can see on the pictures the bar downstairs is really nice. The customer service is not as desired for the lady after 11pm, she is kind of rude and shows lack of interpersonal skills.

Stayed there 2 nights, once booked through Expedia and the other through a different agent. Initially it was a bit of a pain to locate the hostel as I wasn't familiar with the area and hadn't brought a map with me. Beyond that, it was an easy back and forth for when I needed to get to/from it to the...

Only stayed one night, both toilets were blocked and filled with poo, rooms were smelly and the place was really unwelcoming, room doors didn't really lock, beds were three high, what a mess. I won't be back ever.

This is one of the cheapest hostels in London - and in light of that you can't expect much. But it has the basics. If you are very money-conscious and are really just looking for a place to crash at night and not to spend time at, this is a great choice! It's my go-to hostel in London and I've...

This place it's not too clean, and the breakfast it's almost nothing. Didn't like it! Cheap but duty. And too far from the action in London. Take it like your last option. Just to sleep and keep going.

The staff are nice, but thats pretty much it. The beds are shaky and make a hell of a noise. The doors have signs saying put your valuables in lockers, there are no lockers. The shower only had cold water on my floor so I went to the one below. The outlet was blocked in 30 seconds and there was...

The building is a bit old especially the rooms,but there was a sort of bohemian lyfe style in the living room which I enjoyed a lot. Guests were nice and polite, and the staff is very welcoming and friendly. I would recommend this place!
