One of the noisiest backpacker I have ever been into. Also one with the tiniest common room. Avoid this place definitely if you come as a couple because you will get one of the rooms close to the only bathrooms on first floor, and the hand dryers will turn your night in a neverending nightmare. I seriously considered destroying it. Instead we decided to leave this place before our last night, and found a QUIET and FRIENDLY place in WhiteChapel in the Budget category of a well known hotel.
A bit far away from Central London but worth it.
Great people, great place, super great staff !!!!! The only bad point is the distance from London heart
While we were there, there was construction going on which we were not notified about. This meant that the free breakfast would not be supplied and the kitchen was not available for use, which made eating more expensive. The room was fine, the beds were nice however the pillow was essentially as flat as a piece of paper. The bathrooms were a bit dirty, and there was nowhere to put your clothes while showering except on a red stool. Wifi was free and available. Fine for a quick stay.
