The staff is good but the facilities are not. The location is decent depending on where you are coming. Bar is nice as it is a student bar. Would recommend but just know you aren't getting good facilities.

Bathrooms were not in a great state. Wifi not available on top floor and door was for some strange reason propped open with a dehumifier all night. However 24 hour reception was really handy, beds were pretty comfy, staff were friendly enough and free breakfast is always a bonus. Good location walking distance to Borough Market!

Over all it seems like the staff did minimum to keep up with the facilities and the people staying. There is mold in the bathrooms. Breakfast is okay, but they could have done a better job. The bar area was decent.

This hostel was absolutely worth the price. Only downside is that it is next to a probation office. The showers weren't great, but they were clean, you just had to push the button a lot. The kitchen had one giant knife and very few forks, the pans were also quite old. All in all, though great hostel, I would stay here again

It was ok. Nothing special pretty standard. Didn't feel unsafe even as a girl traveling alone. The place wasn't the cleanest but for $20 no complaints
