Excellent staff. Friendly. Provide all necessary useful info on arrival. Perfect location. Clean at ALL times during my stay. Comfortable beds and pillows. Room was appropriately kept at satisfactory temperature. Neither too cold or hot. Definitely would stay again. Just being picky- Tips for improvement- provide lighting and a small side table for each bed.
The hostel was good! Nevertheless we had one problem, because we found a mouse in our room and the staff didn't give us any solution (didn't offer another room, nor sanitize it)
The location is the best part about this hostel. It is right across the British Museum in the heart of Central London! All attractions in Central London are within walking distance. Moreover, the staff is very friendly and always willing to help :) The building is quite old with no elevators, but the rooms are clean. However, they moved me to a different room in a different building nearby on the last day of my stay, definitely not something which I had asked for. That was the only downside.
The staff was amazing not only helpful but they truly enjoyed helping me and giving backpackers tips and advice about the city. Within two miles of all the major sites and boroughs that are particularly interesting in London. In paris now and really wish I was still there!
I've really enjoyed my stay in this hostel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, just in front of the British Museum and there is an underground station a few meters away. The dorms are clean and tidy as well as the bathrooms and toilets. For just 50p (donation to a charity), the breakfast is good. It is a bit noisy but with earplugs, it is not a problem. It's great value for money. If I come back in London, I'll definitely book here :)
The hostel is really well located in the center of London and at walking distance to a lot of nice places like Soho and Piccadilly. There's a safe luggage room, a nice kitchen, the toilets were always clean and there's always hot water when having a shower. The staff was always really friendly and helpful. Two suggestions that could have made my experience better are: - The internet is not so fast, so it could be improved. - The cages under the beds are noisy and could be replaced by lockers
The staff was incredible and the beds were comfortable. Excellent location.
Amazing location, very clean, comfortable beds, friendly people. Not a very social hostel though, as the common area is rather small.
A nice clean hostel at a perfect location!

A very short stay, but the staff proved to be welcoming and helpful trying to meet my needs. You can hardly find a nice hostel in the city centre with these conditions.
Great place! Very friendly staff. The dorm room was big and airy, lots of space for you to get comfortable. Bathroom is clean and private. Nice breakfast every morning with a little courtyard accessible from the kitchen if you want fresh air. Made my stay in London very pleasant!
Sehr freundliches und hilfreiches Personal, die man 24/7 fragen kann. U-Bahn Station direkt in der Nähe.

very clean and safe! the staff come through multiple times a day to clea, especially bathroom. the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. great location! right in the heart of downtown. small facilities, though. the main lounge is small and a bit musty.
The staff are nice and helpful and the rooms are so clean but don't take too many luggages cause just only have stairs haha and its near British museum so it's cool you can go museum anytime lol
This place was great! It's a few stops away from the tube so you can get anywhere in London very quickly. The staff was super friendly and had everything you could need (adapters, towels, etc.)
A decent hostel in the heart of London and yet in a very quiet area (you can get more central than that!), which explains why the hostel is rather pricey. Decent facilities, bedroom was well-heated, showers were decent, very few bathrooms compared to the numbers of guests staying. The building is fairly old, you can notice that, but overall, the place is run smoothly by the staff. Staff was really good: very welcoming, nice and always helpful, a special thanks to them!
The hostel was OK. It is a few steps from the British Museum and very close to St. Pancras Station, which is very convenient. I can only complain about the mattress, which was very hard. Other than that, I think it is a nice place to stay for 1 or 2 nights.
