It's in a great location and is clean, but if you're looking to meet people and hang out, it's not the right place for you. No socializing as far as I saw. I went down to the pub one evening looking to meet others at the hostel or locals and there was no one there besides a few older men who had no interest in talking to me.
Great location, comfy beds with a lamp and power point at the bed head. The curtain across each bed is a big help, especially when other guests in the room are up early or get in late. The breakfast is very basic, but good. Only problem I came across was the showers are very cramped, but they always had hot water so not the end of the world. Would definitely stay there again.

Great location near London Bridge. The owner was really funny and helpful. Every bed has a reading light, locker, curtain and socket and there was a computer, tv and a water boiler in the room. Altough it was quiet in the room during the night it is better to have earplugs because there are railtracks nearby and you could hear the trains during the night. Breakfast was basic but good. Best place I've stayed in London so far!
The location of this hostel cannot be beaten - it's a few minutes walk from Borough Market and the Thames. The security is great and the privacy curtains around each bed are a nice luxury. This place is great for couples or people travelling together, but without a communal space it can be difficult for solo travellers to meet others. I'd definitely stay here again.
No common room, so rather anonymous.
Very nice staff and comfortable beds! The privacy curtains we a huge plus! Only downside is there is no common areas (besides the bar downstairs during open hours), to hang out in, so if you're roommates are sleeping or your neighbors are snoring you have to tough it out and stay quite in the room. Other than that, great breakfast and would stay again.
The staff was great. This facility is above a bar and next to train tracks. There are picnic tables outside in front ot the bar and patrons would be out there talking until late into the night. That and the trains, I didn't sleep very well. They had a good breakfast selection.
