Good Hostel. Far away from the city center, but it has Hedon Central Station just around the corner. Fridays and Saturdays the metro runs all night. Friendly staff, the common kitchen is great for meeting people. Stay here if you intend going to London Luton airport afterwards! Train station Hendon (this station is different from the metro) is just ten minutes away walking, with many buses stopping in front of the hostel. There is a direct train from Hendon to Luton airport parkway.

Dorms were a little crowded with the triple bunks. Location was great being right next to an underground station. Showers only had one temperature which I found to be pretty hot. Free breakfasts were a nice plus.

You have to be prewarned that the dorms are very cramped and the beds are three stories high, not sure if that's in all of them though. It's also quite far from central London however you have easy access to various forms of transport so it makes up for it. The bathrooms gets very crowded and cramped. But great value for money.

Most the staff was ok, the guy that works the front desk in the evening was nothing but rude to us from the very beginning. The location is terrible, it's a 20 to 30 minute train ride to Central London. One good thing is it's right outside the train station. I really wouldn't recommend this hostel to anyone. I asked about the guy that works the front as to why he's so rude. They replied he's really nice once you get to know him. That being the case why is he the one working the front? Really?

Thank you for the feedback, Mike has been disciplined. Sometimes he seems to forget that if you smile at people and talk to them nicely, they will smile and talk nicely back to you. Enjoy your time in Europe and thanks for the pancakes!

We loved this hostel! 20-30 minute tube ride from all the main attractions, triple bunk beds, awesome decor and a great Italian restaurant nearby. Just know that if you're checking out earlier than 10am,you have to give your key card back the night before by midnight or you won't get your £5 deposit

Though a bit far away from the city center, the atmosphere in here is good, and the staff are nice. The most appreciated thing in this hostel is that there are curtains and locker for each bed. If there is a chance to re visit London, I would probably choose this accommodation again.
