I always stay here when I go to London. It's great value, the facilities are really good and it's usually nice and quiet.

I had an amazing time. The staff were helpful and kind and the atmosphere of the hostel was wonderful. The location was also great because it was a minute walk to a metro or bus and there were banks and grocerie stores all around. All in all I had a wonderful experience.

Though the hostal is not really close to central London, it's really easy to get to it, and there's the tube station as close as one could wish. It was fairly clean, and the bathroom and rooms are in good conditions. It was just what we needed for two days, and it's the perfect place if you're just looking for a place to sleep.

I had a great time at this hostel and met new friends that I intend to keep in touch with. The hostel is far away from the city, but it is right across the street from Hendon Central, so it is easy to get where you want. The staff were very friendly. I would go back in the future if my travels take me to London again.

Had tons of fun at this hostel. Made a lot of new friends. Two common areas for people to hang out. My main complaint was that the rooms get very hot at night making it difficult to sleep. It's also about a half hour underground ride to the city

Although the hostel is a bit far from the center of London it is very accessible by public transport.

The only downside to this hostel is the distance to the city center. However, it is located right beside a subway station on a main line, so transportation is really easy. Great value for the money, the bed were awesome with the curtains, reading lights and USB ports. It great to not needt an adaptor. Breakfast was really simple, but the kitchen system was awesome and you could easily enhance your breakfast with supplies from the grocery near by. Staff was great and helpful, full of tips.

Dear Backpackers, we`ve had an absolutely lovely time in London!!! The weather was great, the people at the hostel were nice and nearly everything worked out fine. My wife and I had a room to ourselves and naturley paid a bit more for it. But this room was an absolute desasterous place. Tiney, darkley painted from floor to ceiling,the smalest window going out to the entrance so no fresh air or daylight coming in.Staying in and sleeping was a pain.A room like this should nobody sleep in. Sorry!!!

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.
