the black guy at the reception is kind of rude with a weird ego. he made me wait for about half an hour and checked-in 3 girls before me. the rest is ok, a typical average hostel.


Overall fine stay. tips: oil the bedroom doors they make lot of noise and how about small dim lights in the rooms? Btw wifi is not available on the 3rd floor.

Beds were a little noisy and wifi range wasn't enough to the top floor but otherwise only positive things. Very good location near the borough tube station. Staff was friendly, the noise from the pub downstairs wasn't annoying at all (depends ofc the floor u are living) and free breakfast was a nice plus. Facilities should be updated but everything worked fine (hot water from the shower etc.)

The building was old but clean. The staff was very friendly! When there were no adapters available, they offered that we'd buy one at the shop around the corner and that they would reimburse the cost for the adapter, so that really helped us out. The beds were quite uncomfortable however, and there were not nearly enough showers. On our floor, there were 4 dorms but there were only 2 showers available (only 1if you don't like showering with a friend) for over 20 people.


The facility is totally inadequate, not enough showers, and those which there are barely work (among other deficiencies). The staff were fine, but this place is only really tolerable if you like 3am hallway parties (I don't).


The facilities are really bad, and the price is not quite well. However, the location is fairly good!


no comment..


Poor bathroom, but is secure, hot wate, near to tube.
