Very dirty carpet being held together by studs and bolts. Some of the floors are so old that you can feel it cave in when you walk over it. One of the bathrooms had poop smeared all over

Hostel is in amazing location, close to tube and shops/restaurants. For that price you can't go wrong, but there was one huge down side, too much Spanish people and they were really rude, seems like they own the place.


Aceptable quality-price accord with the situation


When you are paying so little for accommodation in central London you can not expect perfection. We found the hostel functional and met all our needs. In a central location with cooking facilities. ...


Room was described as having an ensuite. The "ensuite" was a shower cubicle in the middle of the room with glass painted white so you couldn't see in. The shower head was broken. No privacy to get changed because of set up. There was no toilet in the room (despite being described as ensuite) and the shared ones in the hallway were blocked several times. Although there were 4 beds in the room there was not enough room for 4 suitcases in the room. Wouldn't want to share this room with strangers.
