Las camas no tienen enchufe cerca, estan en paredes alejadas. Los lockers estan debajo de cada cama y eso hace bastante ruido. En las duchas de mujeres, el agua salia fría y nunca llegaba a calentarse. El luggage room te lo hacen pagar incluso si llegas antes del check in. El restaurant que tiene en entregarte la comida tarda una hora, pero es buena. El desayuno no esta incluido y no es recomendable.

Therebare no plugs in the beds, the baths are disgusting and the rooms are not very clean. The bar has a terrible staff and is really overpriced, the breakfast (not included) in aweful

Muy bueno el hostel, ordenado, limpio seguro y muuuy cerca de la estación central de trenes de Londres (ideal para bajarte del tren, caminar 5-6 cuadras, llegar al hostel, dejas tus cosas y salis a recorrer la ciudad inmediatamente)

Security was way too strict

Excelente opción. Bien ubicado. Buen bar para la noche. Piezas básicas pero confortables. El punto más crítico es que todas las habitaciones tienen baño compartido.

O pior custo-benefício da viagem. Apesar da ótima localização e ambiente inovador, o atendimento (funcionários) e a limpeza (principalmente nos banheiros) deixaram a desejar. Sugestão: melhoria do atendimento e da receptividade de alguns funcionários da recepção.

It's not a bad place. It's just that the room was so insanely hot that it was completely impossible to sleep. I finally gave up at around 03:00, and went down to the reception to make them turn off the oven, and they did. But since it had laden so ridiculously hot, it took a couple of hours for the room to reach a sleepable temperature (I actually burned my hand on the radiator trying to turn it down (which you can't), that's how insanely hot it was). Sleepless night? This is the place.

hello, You organize every day activities but nobody showed me around the site or explain the different activities offered, but you told me that I need you'd be. I looked for a long time my room, and it is a traveler who helped me because I was lost.

Hostel has lots going on in it and if you are of a lazy disposition, you may find yourself giving in and spending all day here. It is a vibrant colourful place with lot's on offer - a bar with entertainment every evening, a restaurant with a selection of great meals, a chill-out lounge, and a cinema. The location is in an excellent area of central London - you can take a great 30 minute walk to Leicester Square as I did on a couple of occasions. As there is no free breakfast, and no cooking faci

Ambiente perfeito, localização também! Mas a melhor qualidade é a segurança, porteiro 24h, só entra com o cartão de hóspede.

El hostel es muy artificial. Luce como uno de los mejores pero en realidad es una fachada. No incluyen desayuno, algo que se avisa de antemano, pero tampoco tienen cocina. Todo está pensado para que gastes más dinero en el bar del hostel. En la habitación la calefacción no anduvo ningún día... EN PLENO INVIERNO. Dejan demasiado que desear.

Great hostel! My only complaint would be that sometimes the bathrooms were a bit dirty. It is otherwise quite nice and close to the underground. Make sure to bring a small lock since the space to put your lock in the lockers is pretty small (I had to buy a new lock from the hostel). Also, even though it says on this website that they have towels for hire, this is not true; you have to purchase them for £4.

Pretty good location quite close to tube stops. Atmosphere is great with a bar downstairs and overall it's a really nice hostel with big comfy beds. My only criticism is that the generator could do with a bit more infrastructure- was very disappointed that there was only 4 toilets/showers on each level when there were a LOT of rooms, and just little thins like not enough powerpoints for everyone and no lights on the bunks. Staff were very knowledgable and super helpful, overall a great stay :)

This is one of the nicest hostels I've been to... very cool styling, great location and superb value for money. Was only there for a day but would love to come back for more.

Very large hostel, in a good location. The bar area was busy on a Tuesday night, and they had a nice lounge area with movies showing. I would stay again! Con: They charge a lot for locker rentals, towels, etc. bring your own supplies.
