I had a good stay at this hostel, the three tier bunks can be a pain but there were outlets attached to each bunk so that helped a lot! The under bed storage was large enough to fit my entire pack, and the free breakfast was great. The only downside is the location, it's about thirty minutes on the tube from the city center. But the price is right!

A bit far out of town and pretty boring place to stay

The room i was staying in which was a 14 bed dorm was quite hot all the time, bit of tropical warmth. The staff was really nice and helpful and the other people were polite and nice, too. The lockers under your bed were a bit unsave in my opinion because someone could still steal little/small things out of it so it's the best if u keep it in a bag or your suitcase. The cleaness was average, bathroom was a bit dirty but the rooms were really clean.

All is good except location. It is a little bit far from central of city. But the underground station is located in frond of the hostel and all is good. Security, facilities, staff and cleanliness! Awesome. I can recommend this hostel to you!

Clean, professional staff, safe and good feel. Good rooms and bathrooms. Wifi was not excellent and really struggled at times, and the walls were very thin so loud through rooms/hallways. Breakfast consisted of cereals and toast. Other visitors were fun and nice and did not give off a dodgy vibe. Very good value for such a cheap price, made us feel safe and satisfied staying there

This place is bomb diggity! Mad close to a bank and the tube (although a bit of a long ride) and cheap food nearby. The free breakfest is satisfying and the bathrooms don't smell too bad. The beds, oh man the beds. Over-head light, outlet, and usb ports. The beds have curtens, and a cage to lock stuff in underneath. You need a padlock though. 10/10 would stay again.

Hostel was about 30 minutes by tube away from the city, Staff were helpfullish ( I understand that is not a word). Definitely more of a party hostel as all the people in the room around ours were constantly opening and slamming doors and yelling. Only toilets in the building on the top floor and constantly busy. Internet came and went and was unfortunately unreliable. Benefits would be price and availability.

This hostel was a good value for money: clean, staff was nice and the rooms were good enough. They had own power sockets in every bed so this was great, also they has usb-sockets so you don't neccessarily need to have an adapter or Uk-charger. The only not-so-good things were that the dorms were very hot during the night, all tough there were windows open so it helped a little. Also the location was a bit far away from the city centre. All and all very recommendable hostel !:)

Kind of far from city central.


77%

The hostel had a central area connected to a kitchen that was great for meeting people in. There are quite a few long term tennants, so people are pretty easy going if you keep clean and repect their need for quiet in the late evening :) In terms of location, it's easy enough during the day to get around but at night when the tube closes it's a trek to get home. I've onlt been to 2 other hostels before, this one is pretty good in my eyes, at least as somewhere to sleep.

nice and clean hostel. the breakfast is very simple, but that's ok. it's located a bit far away from the city centre. but there are several bus stops and a tube station so it doesn't make any problem to get there. some shops nearby. and the staff was really helpful! would recommend and stay there again, it is worth its price!

Good hostel, nice staff, breakfast ok, curtains for each bed, warm shower, individual light and sockets. Two main problems: far from city center and loud music in the middle of the night somewhere around. I liked staying here, but for only a weekend, it was difficult to get around city centre.

Really good hostel, they provide lots of information about London and what you can do. My friend and I signed up for the pub crawl for £15 and its was fantastic. Bathrooms are a little smelly but they are clean, showers you have to press on every ten seconds but they're hot so its good. The beds were very comfy, never seen a triple bunk before. It wad extremely close to Hendon central station and a few banks and great food places but that station is at least 45 minutes out from the city.

It is a good hostel to stay in, good price, but is really far from the city, so you'll spend a lot on the tube. Breakfast is not good, kitchen closes at 9am, and you can't stay in the common room until 10am beacuse they are cleaning the kitchen.

Easy to find after Underground. Really warm

Had a very good stay here. Hostel was very clean. The beds are great - curtains for privacy, reading light, and outlets all next to you. Bathrooms were fine. Only complaint was that the bedroom was very warm at night, even though it was cool outside.

I was really surprised to see that it is possible to stay in London for less than 15 Pounds/night + breakfast. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean... I will definitely come back if I need a cheap place to stay in London.
