would absolutely stay there again. The staff were very helpful and friendly. A map of the area was provided as well as useful directions for nearby bus stops and tube stations. The hostel is itself a beautiful open plan house and i was very happy with the accommodation london service.

Nice hostel!! The breakfast times could have been indicated somewhere, and when you arrive in the dark it's kind of difficult to find the right house, so maybe a little sign by the road would be helpful. Awesome that there were fridges in the room! And everything looked nice and clean. We had a really good time and I would definitely book this hostel again in the future!


i stayed at the 8 bed dorm and the hostel is near to the station. the room and the toilet are clean, but the kitchen is a bit mess as it is the job that the users tidy up what they have used. overall the hostel is good.

Strange vibe, better for people staying long term.A good walk from station which is tough when arriving at night. Location can be confusing as same company owns several hostels in area. Wouldn't stay in summer as room felt very sticky and stuffy even in winter. Didn't feel 5 pound late fee was justified as our plane was late and baggage lost. Annoying that there is no point of contact on site.
