Very dirty, especially bathroom, bed and water boiler. Location is not good as well. If guest plan to go to center, must take subway for 20 mins.


The ugliest hostel I have ever seen. Very dirty showers and toilets, no cleaning staff, dirty rooms. Some people got sick when I was there. Very thin mattresses (2 cm). Simple breakfast and lockers. At least it is the cheapest hostel in london and there is a pub in front of the hostel. However, I will never stay there again.


Very good. Remember to bring your own tower as there will be additional charge for that.


The shower is unexpected as being need to push a button from time to time to make it run.


The hostel is really cheap and that's why I stayed there, but the beds were unconfortable and the bathroom were dirty.

Hostel could be a lot cleaner, maintenance to shower facilities is necessary, during our stay on multiple occasions there was no hot water.


The room was very messy and the showers dirty, I won't come back but it's okay for 1 night if you don't have choice


Excellent location and great value.
