I expected worse after seeing the reviews but it's pretty much 'you get what you pay for'. Spent pretty much zero time in the room. The bar is brilliant, nice location too.

No Kitchen. Very small beds, poor showers and not very clean toilets. Location is also not very good as you have to travel 25 minutes to the hostel. The large area to stay and relax was OK as well as the breakfast!

I liked the hostel. It was cheap and they offered a breakfast. But the bathrooms were really bad. They were small and dirty. And the same for the showers.

Not a good atmosphere. Too big, and too dark of an open space in the bar/lobby/hangout room. No personality. And the rooms were crowded and beds uncomfortables.

I only stayed here for one night so can't really comment. Staff were really nice but there wasn't anyone at the reception desk in the morning so I had to wait 20 minutes to check out. Breakfast was included which was a bonus. The only toilet that I saw upstairs was male only so had to go downstairs to the pub toilets. Although I think the female toilet was a couple floors above my room.

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.

Nice common room, breakfast bare minimum but okay, rooms okay enough, but the cleanliness is a catastrophe, I could barely bring myself to use the bathrooms.

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.
