One particular staff member extremely rude and very unhelpful. Simple questions where made to seem inconvenient and disturbing for her. Cant even make a another booking at the hostel when your literally standing there offering them money for another night - has to be done through the website ( I went somewhere else!)
Yikes! Check this place out before you bookt. The creepy spraypainted murals on the wall might look good in a club environment, not so sure that this is what I want to look at walking up the steps to go to bed. Also VERY IMPORTANT. They do NOT accept credit or debit cards.
I was disappointed to know the room I've booked for 6 beds actually has 7 beds. And the room is not so clean. There's too many heavy doors and small steps on stairs. The reception is downstairs, so you'll have to climb extra stairs to get to your room.

Great location, near supermarkets, the tube and restaurants. It was a little bit difficult to find it, so make sure to get the correct address. Clean toilets and bathrooms (with hot water!). Poor internet conection, what might be very bad for some people. Kinda weird kitchen, but with all you need to cook your food. Besides the cons, it was a great value for money and we enjoyed our time at Central Hostel.
You get what you pay for. I stayed here b4 cause I´d rather spend my money on delicious food and shopping. if you want lux go to a hotel or pay double some other hostel. And have 3 story bunks. Your choice. It´s a place to sleep, you can cook, walk to many places or take bus, subway, lots of shops and eateries in the area. I used to live on Moscow Rd, so I know and love the area.
No soap in bathroom, greasy surfaces, no stairs for the top-bunks, internet working 50% of the time.
Didn't like the hostel very much. The location is nice. But the rooms and the staff is bad. Staff is unfriendly and wanted us to pay more money then Hostelworld said. When I showed her the Email confirmation, she acted like she made a mistake by accident. The bunkbeds are ok, but there is a lot of mold in the entire hostel. It smells really bad. Wouldn't recommend it. But if you are looking for a cheap place to stay, it is ok.
Not the best place i stayed in at least 3 different rooms over the week or so i was there. Had to leave luggage in the shed outside as without a lift going up 4 floors is too much with heavy bags. Some staff seem ok but they only really interact with the people that are staying there long term and theres a few of those. The beds arent the greatest in any of the rooms but not too bad. The showers were good and hot water always and good pressure. Wifi non existant beyond reception but didnt use.
