Nice place. Downside being you are not allowed to drink alcohol that wasn't purchased at the bar and the lockers are just small ones to put valuables in.

Nice and quiet. Beds are comfy and clean. Bathrooms are clean but all the showers except for one on the second floor are tiny . Would stay again.

For England you think the only front desk person would speak the native tongue.

This is basically just a few very crowded dorms above a pub. There is no common room, no kitchen or anything other than the dorms. Staff very nice and friendly. Showers and toilets were clean. Security was average. While door security worked well, lockers were tiny and not enough in the dorm (6 small lockers for 9 people - bad). Unfortunately London is probably the worst destination in terms of hostel standards - expensive; limited facilities with little alternative.

There is a great pub downstairs that is open to the public. Also the bathroom facilities are one toilet and shower for the whole mixed floor.

First off I'll start by saying the manager was extremely rude in every single manner and this went on the whole time I was staying there, he also forever tried to convince me to buy drinks.when I had already declinde numerous times, he makes you feel like you cant sit in the bar and not drink (There is no common area) The Hostel itself was very clean and safe but very stupid rules as in NO OTSIDE FOOD AT ALL. fair enough no alcohol but you couldnt even bring a sandwhich in. RIDICULOUS.

The good: the hostel has an awesome location. It's 3-4 tube stops away from the major stuff, and there's a tube station literally next door (closed for construction during my stay, but there's another tube stop a 3 minute walk away). The price, too, was decent. However: this hostel does not allow external food at all. Not upstairs, not in the bar downstairs. And the bar only serves pizza at a whopping £8. If you're planning any extended stay and get tired of pizza, look elsewhere.

The rooms are very tiny, there is hardly enough room to put your bad anywhere on the floor. The entire hostel just felt dirty and disorganized. Good price, but you get what you pay for.

The staff were very friendly and it was excellent that I could leave my bags in the storage room on both the day of my stay and the next day. The hostel is in a great location and the prices are great Negatives 1. It is awkward to get into the bathrooms due to the way the doors were hinged. It would be better if the door were hinged on the other side to allow easier access. 2. I asked to buy a lock but there were none available. The storage room was left open all morning and is not so safe.

The hostel loction is really good, one underground station is next door, another just around the corner. The hostel is connected to a great pub, lots of good times to expect there. The staff is really helpful but needed to be as my key card stopped working 3 times during my 2 night stay. Rooms are really clean but small. Security lockers are only big enough for small items. It's a recomendation from tme though!

I was ignored for a long time while waiting to check in. The service was terrible. I felt that the place was dirty and I left the next night.

The rooms were a bit crowded and lacked proper storage for luggage, but other than that it was an excellent stay, especially considering the price. Would definitively recommend for the traveller on a budget who'd rather see town than the hotel.

Slightly above-average hostel. Beds are a little creaky, but the sheets are clean. Bathrooms are a little shady, but usually pretty clean, although the door doesn't extend all the way to the floor, which is a major annoyance. There's a hospital nearby so there are sirens all night long in addition to the bar music downstairs. Location is pretty decent - lots of main sights are easily accessible via tube.

Location is great, right next to the Edgeware underground station. Breakfast was ok, just cereal, tea and toast. Most annoying thing was that there were no plugs in the rooms, only 2 or 3and in very odd places. How is a room of 18 people supposed to be ok with only 2 plugs? Also, room key kept deactivating and it was annoying to have to keep going down to get it fixed. Overall though, not a terrible hostel, a common room where you're allowed to drink (your own) alcohol would be helpful though.

The best part is that the pub is right below us. Our group would relax there until we decided to go to our room at night. Room is very small, but liveable. I recommend it!

Great Hostel, perfect for meeting people! Great location next to the subway

The first night I stayed there, we experienced a black-out which meant that the lights were all off and the water was not working as well so we couldn't shower. However, I think this should be a one-off. But the location is REALLY good being right beside the Edgeware Road at the Bakerloo Line. Although the station will be undergoing renovations soon, there is still the Hammersmith and City line.

I think there are some students on excursion and they kept talking loudly on the corridor until midnight. and nobody stops them......
