One of the other travellers ruined this experience for me. Staff handled it ok but I felt security was poor because of this.

The good things: Relatively good location and a decent free breakfast. The guy at the reception got almost personally offended when I tried spelling my name and he wasn't very friendly over all. The kitchen/living room is too small and there were only two toilets and showers on our floor. The hostel is situated next to a busy street, sleeping in is impossible. Wasn't my first stay in London so I know it can be done better, book only if you don't wanna spend too much time at your hostel.

The price/value was perfect. This is a good hostel for that. The hostel is good located just a view minutes from the London bridge. The stuff was friendly and I felt welcomed. The shower was a bit dirty, but there were people before me, so yeah...

Wifi doesn't really work. Maybe you should write on your page that you want caution for the free towels.

Marco and Sunny were extremely helpful and friendly. The lock on my room's door was a bit fiddly but the room was nice and clean. Didn't have to pay to borrow things like a adapter or towels, just a deposit to be returned on check out. Would stay again for sure.

Nice international atmosphere, very easy to meet new people. Also the hostel pub is very nice and friendly and perfect to meet both the guests of the hostel and normal costumers. the restrooms though were very dirty, bad smell from the showers and no hot water in the third floor.

The manager of the hostel, Carina is one of the nicest people I've met, and the owner has quite the sense of humor. So glad I stayed, I would gladly stay again. Very pleased with my choice to stay at this wonderful place.

Les douches, qui n'ont que de l'eau froide (!!!), sont assez sales avec du moisi. Si les douches sont très inconfortables, ce n'est pas du tout le cas pour les toilettes, assez propres avec une grande fenêtre (qui empêche les mauvaises odeurs de rester je suppose)

The location of Hostel is very convenient. The breakfast is included but not satisfied with the quality of breakfast. Only included breads and cereals. The fruits supply was also limited. We could not get any since we arrived a bit late. Nobody to attend while breakfast.

Showers were cold, and other guests found the lack of privacy to be uncomfortable (as in left when they saw me in there in my underwear) I didn't mind them, though. The location is awesome. A sunset walk on the Thames to the London Bridge and Tower Bridge is soooo close!

Gute Lage, im Sommer viel zu heiss in den Zimmern (Fenster können nicht geöffnet werden, nur mit kleinen Ventilatoren belüftet), nicht sehr sauber. Keine Locker vorhanden

Facil de llegar en metro y económico para dormirse una noche, se puede usar la cocina pero los baños son pocos y se podría tener mejor limpieza

For the money I paid, everything was great. I coulnd't make breakfasts because everyday I left the hostel before 8.00 so maybe if only they started a little bit earlier I would be 100% satisfied. But otherwise the stay was great, no regrets.
