Bad point: The bath facilities are really lame and the beds are 6/10. Good point: The pub seems to be really traditional in the neighborhood, I watched the match Wigan Athletic vs. Arsenal and the atmosphere was awesome! If you are a Arsenal fan and couldn't buy a ticket to a match this is the place for to watch an Arsenal match.

The mattress of the bed I slept on was really uncomfortable. I will suggest regarding to the cleaning that you ask the people who is staying longer to help you to clean at least once every week of every other week, so therooms will seem cleaner and with a little order.

It wasn't such a clean hostel and in the room everything was untidy, but the main area wasn't bad, the location is better than I expected and is good for value, if you just need a hostel to sleep this is not bad

Very nice common room with pool tables and a smoking area. Showers were kinda dirty, but nothing like I had read about for hostels. The location was nice for living there since there were alot of stores and restaurants nearby but for a tourist, very long waltk to the tube station and decently far from anything to see.

The worst hostel I've ever seen. Dirty, smelly, very dirty, showers, toilets, disgusting. Unfriendly staff. Please pay more and choose another hostel.

Don't leave keys in the room as probably cleaners steal them for the deposit (it happened to many customers I spoke to) the same for other basic stuff like socks and tobacco. You can't also drink inside. (WHAT?!!) is it a joke?Room I was smelled like s

Good value for money. linen changed every week. Awsome big lobby. Bed could be bigger. Guys in reception are cool :) The big problem is the GUY who cleans the rooms. When you sleep makes it so loud that you wake up, do not pay attention to the customer is rude and loud!!! WTF ???

Beds were not clean, everybody was snoring very loud and I caught aids just by looking at the shower... I even got my both clipper and shaver stolen from my backpack . Really far from all the attractions. I would not go again.

Two really good nights in this hostel with my friend. The beds are a little bit too small but we slept well, people were nice, staff was okay and there is a nice common room and a nice pub just next to the hostel. The bathroom could be bigger and maybe cleaner but that was okay. We were happy after our stay there :).

Spent there one night, in a 9 bed shared room. Was very warm inside the room, with a noisy fan running all the night, not very comfortable bed, very tiny mattress. The bathroom was shared with all the floor , the shower was simply disgusting, a bunch of dirty towels on the floor and very dirty. The common room anyway is ok.
