The check-in was easy. It was nice to be able to store our backs beforehand because we arrived early. However, the hostel itself is not the cleanest, mostly bathrooms and kitchen facilities were dirty. Making urself dinner in the "kitchen" was rather disgusting and difficult (no real oven, hardly any pots/pans). The breakfast, only offered for 90 minutes (7.30-9 am) was a joke..no real coffee! The room itself was ok. Except for the street lamp right in front of our window without real blinds.

This hostel had its perks and downfalls. The distance from the hostel to the tube stop could not be beat and the staff were great. The showers had fantastic water pressure. The price was reasonable as well. The downfalls were that a lot of the people actually live at the hostel so it is very easy to feel as if you are invading their space. It is also very cramped, and is very stuffy. There is no air conditioning so on the day the temperature reached 90 degrees the room was unbearable and made it

It was nice for the price that you usually pay in London. Very clean facilities, quiet zone and 30 seconds from the train station.

About 25-35min from the centre, located just across the street from Hendon Central. Affordable price for a good quality stay. The staff and other guests are very nice and sociable. Many solo travellers, so anyone will fit right in. A good size storage boxes under each bunk bed. Rooms cleaned every morning, as are the share spaces. Since I stayed during one of London's massive heatwaves, sleeping was a little difficult due to the absence of A/C or fans in the rooms. Would stay again.

The staff were absolutely superb and were so helpful and accommodating. The people in the hostel were very pleasant and more than welcoming. The beds and bathrooms were kept clean, and overall it was nice and tidy. The only part that I found unfortunate was the distance from the city. It was about thirty minutes by metro to get truly into the city, but the hostel was literally a one minute walk from a metro station so that was a plus. Overall it was a great choice that I'd definitely recommend.

Was a great hostel to stay at. Staff was very knowledgeable and willing to help answer questions about routes and getting settled into the city. Compared to central London the location is far out, but easily reachable by tube as the station is less than a few steps away. Would highly recommend.

The beds were nice, as each had personal lamps and outlets. This is pretty far from London, but luckily it's right across the street from Heldon Central on the Northern Line, which takes you right to central London. They could invest in a ceiling fan or two for the big rooms. It was bloody hot.

Great for a lengthy stay. Cheap and easy being right next to the station. Annoying on the second floor as you had to go up a flight of stairs to get to a bathroom in the middle of the night. Some of the staff almost go out of there way to show how much they hate working there which is a bit of a buzz kill and were a touch unhelpful at times. That was a shame because others were excellent.

Pretty good stay overall, especially considering the price. The wifi worked, showers were fine, the beds with lights, charging points and curtains are definitely a plus, and for the cost of the rooms it's pretty impressive to have breakfast included!

Nice room with wonderful facilities. Only a little bit noisy before 0 o'clock, also sometimes the people in other rooms will make some noise. A little bit far away from centre of London but just opposite to the underground station, easily to find it. The price is much cheaper than most of hotels in London. Anyway, A good choice for students.
