Bit drafty and there is noise from the street/other guests but that's to be expected from a backpackers place in London. The room I stayed in was clean enough, staff were very helpful to me when I locked my keys inside one night, and the toilets are cleaned daily. I'm a 5'1 19 year old girl traveling alone and when...

The location is quite far from everything but at least it's close to public transport. Cleanings is truly aweful, and the equipment in the kitchen is definitelly not fancy, but if you're looking for a cheap and unpretentious accommodation, that's the right place

You get a bed, roof over your head, shower, bathroom, kitchen and a room to lounge in, all for a very reasonable price. Can't really complain. My only issue was with the wifi. The room we stayed in down towards the very end had no connection to it. Otherwise a very good place to stay for backpackers as the name...

There were people living there for months, which means they partied in the living room and there were drunk people on the corridors (which stink). The sheets on the bed were dirty and it was impossible to sleep at night due to the noise from the streets and, during the weekends, due to the parties the people living there made...

The hostel is cheap but the services are highly limited, some corridors smell like piss, some rooms have mildewed walls and ceilings, no wifi in the rooms but in the café on the ground-floor, just a little shower INSIDE the room(no bathroom), toilets outside, 3 toilets per sex and per floor. When the room has no mildewed walls the place...
