Big rooms and no bunk beds was a plus. Chelsea is a great area too and only a block from the red line. Breakfast was a little strict and there's no wifi in the rooms which was annoying


Kitchen did not have much utensils. Only plastic knives etc. Hard to really do any cooking there.

Generally a really good hostel - fantastic location, secure, decent facilities and a good price.


Its clean, warm, helpful, professional staff and perfect location.


I had a private room with shared bathroom. The room was fine, bathroom and toilet were clean as well. This hostel looks more like a hotel though, staff was not very helpfull, almost seemed like the guests were a burden, no 'family feeling' or whatsoever. The common room/dinner area felt like a restaurant set-up, not really suited for easily meeting other people. I think this is a perfect hostel if you want privacy, ok facilities and do your own thing, but not if you want a warm welcome feeling.
