It is a good place to stay, however, it was a bit anoying that they started cleaning the place at 8/9 o clock in the morning when people get up and would like to use the toilest or the kitchen.


The best Hostel i've stayed in. Warm, friendly, clean & comfortable beds. Very friendly and helpful staff. Kitchen clean & tidy. Can't recommend it strong enough.


We stayed two nights and a lot of the negative reviews i read were wrong! Or maybe the staff read them and fixed the mistakes. Either way it was in par with all the other hostels I've stayed in backpacking Europe and the staff is very nice. The major draw back is it's distance from the city but with an oyster card its only €2.30 each way on the train. Overall I would certainly stay here again if a hostel in city wasn't an option.


Very enjoyable stay, we only stayed for one night but would have happily stayed longer. Kitchen facilities was good, bedding was clean and location was excellant with being on a main bus route through. Recommended hostel.


Overall our stay here was pretty average. The location was convenient, right by the national rail station and many bus stops. The staff were very friendly and efficient. There are small lockers available for hire in the dorm room, but nowhere secure for luggage. The room locks with an actual key and can be left ajar, so security isn't great. Pincodes to get in the main doors.

Too far from anything; the staff was not very friendly, whatsoever; and if you want to take a shower, the very best of luck to you. Two words sum up my experience here: Never. Again.

Didn't realize when I booked how far out it is, but that was my omission..


There were no women shower, so I had to have a shower in men's. At night it was noisy because of the room neighbors.

HI, Our hotel has both a separate Men's and Women's shower/bathroom facility and a unisex bathroom. I wish you would have come down to reception, as we would have been happy to show you where they were located. kind regards, Antigallican Hotel Staff


Nice kitchen area. Ladies shower area awkward - no space to hang things.


Very clean showers and lovely staff. Such a great deal for your money. Closr to a bus stop that'll take you to the tube station.


Hostel is a good ways out of London on an expensive train that stops running at around 11, so nights in the city are difficult to impossible. But as are nights in the hostel. the only common space is the kitchen which is nice but closes at night as well. no wifi in my room. staff was creepy, so the whole thing felt a little like a horror movie. They also all wore the same clothes every day and the one or two normal ones always looked scared. Would not recommend if you want to see London.


The Single-Room was very small an had no window, except for a window above the door. But the curtain in front of the window couldn't be removed, so it was very dark and sticky.

There were a lot of additional fees at this hostel -- like a fee for the locker in your room. I had to ask for a towel, which was meant to be included, so it seemed a bit disorganized. The showers don't have any private space to change, so be prepared to bare all to anyone else in the bathroom. The kitchen facilities were fantastic.


The location was extremly far away from anywhere in London, the bar looked awful, the bathroom was falling apart. The room itself had dirty sheets, there was one small window looking at a wall.


Would like some lockers. Didn't know if there was a storage room or not.


Low price with excellent services, everything was good except the bathroom - The bath tub doesn't work well sometimes. And also u need to pay for renting a locker.


Have to be patient to get hot water. No locker available. A bit far from city center but train station around the corner, so I didn't mind.


Only 10 minute bus ride from the O2. You get what you pay for but the hostel was spotlessly clean, lovely little kitchen upstairs and comfortable beds. Can you really ask for more at that price? Cheap and cheerful but I'll definitely be staying again.
