Great place for youngsters today. It's close to Buckinghum Palace and Big Ben, so very convenient. Good facilities and friendly staff. Clean and tidy. What needs improving is that the bed mattress is too narrow compared to the bed.

They have a very friendly kitchen!! Everything is well cleaned and I would definitely choose it rather than Generator in London as I have stayed in Generator before.

Stayed in this hostel for 2 nights. For us, the location is very important. This hostel is very central, just around the corner from Victoria station & very easy to walk to landmarks like Big Ben and Buckingham palace! Hostel was clean and breakfast was incIuded! Can only think of 2 downsides, the bathrooms and showers were not on the same level as the dorms, and secondly, there was no lockers. Overall though great value for money, I wouldnt hesitate to stay here on my next visit to London!

It was a very pleasant surprise to find this hostel so close to Victoria. It replaced a night spent at an airport with a warm bed and very helpfull staff... I was even able to print my flight ticket for free. Thank you. I will use this hostel again when in London ;)

I used this as a quick stay, only sleeping 3 hours and then off again so I cannot give a complete review. Staff seemed friendly. Breakfast looked good. Cheap stay. Location is ok, but you'll be using the metro in London anyway, so long as you're close to a bus or Tube station don't matter too much where you are. Close to Victoria Bus Station which was handy for me.

Never stayed in a hostel before so was a bit worried about the cleanliness and coldness of the hostel seen as it was the middle of winter. We found the hostel very easily with it being located only a short walk fro Pimlico tube station. We were greeted by staff who told us everything we needed to know, we were able to get towels and locks for the big cages under the beds ensuring our belongings were safe whilst out exploring. The beds were clean and surprisingly comfy and rooms very well heated.

The toilets should be cleaned more often. The staff could be more interactive with the travellers. You should have one more PC.

The location of the hostel was perfect, walking distance from Buckingham palace. The staff was helpful, we stayed in a 8 bed dorm and it was fine. There are different activities every night, we were there when there was PSP football tournament. Breakfast was very good, it's a 50 p donation. Internet was good as well, there was a cash machine inside the hostel. It was helpful that there was a free luggage room on the day of departure, we spent a whole day out and collected bags in the evening.

Great Location, friendly Staff. Good value for money... But a mirror in the private room would be nice to have!

Room was big and clean enough. Shared showers were always cleaned and worked well. Enough power plugs and the cages under the bed, though noisy, were secure. Staff were really helpful and place felt safe. Location is excellent, walking distance to Victoria Station and I also walked to Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace. Not many restaurants/bars around the hostel though and as a female solo traveller I didn't think the common area was great for meeting people.

Not a bad little place. Steep narrow stairs. Small rooms but everything you could need

Since we are an historical building, there's nothing that we can do about the stairs, but our aim is to offer the most enjoyable stay to our guests.
