This place isn't too bad for a short stay. It has one problem, which can be considered quite a big problem - the hostel is situated right next to the overground train tracks so I would high recommend that if you're staying here, that you bring some good quality ear plugs. Noise aside, the place is decent for the money. Decor makes the place look run down, but it has the essentials - kitchen facilities, clean bed. I only stayed here one day - showers looked quite run down though.

If you want to enjoy London, please don,t let this place ruin your trip ! Those pictures were taken ages ago, everything was old in fact. No ID check when I arrived. Reception was so awful. He put me in a room with two other women who were really living there with all their own closets. It looked more like I was gonna surf her couch or something. Then I checked the toilets, as expected, didn't work and dirty. I finally left the place for somewhere better.

Don't believe the photos, it looks nothing like that. It looks dirty, dated and neglected and the one saving grace is the wifi. The double windows block out some of the train noise, which is very loud, but they're shared with the room next door so if they close theirs its noisy in ours. Ridiculous! Walls are paper thin and you hear everything. An awful, dirty place. I won't be back.

Terrible place! The pictures were taken years ago, everything is very old and dirty. The shower is disgusting and the bedroom is awful. I am really disapointed with hostel world for let this place be in their list. I always use these website to try find places everywhere in the world, but a place like that should never be in the hostelword website! Very disapointed!

The hostel is in an excellent location for the subway, right across the street. Light sleepers bring ear plugs because you can here the trains every couple of minutes. The kitchen is decent and grocery stores are within walking distance to get food and cook it in kitchen. It takes 20 mins by subway to central London. Totally worth staying here instead of other hostels in central London charge way more per night. Most people keep to themselves and are respectful. THe beds are comfy but, squeak.

I stayed for one night on my way out of London. It's directly across the street from the underground and about 15 minutes to Heathrow. If you have an early flight don't worry about missing it as the trains will wake you up when they start running at 5am. The toilets in the bathroom didn't flush, the kitchen was questionable, and the beds were squeaky. Front desk guy was nice enough, but didn't want to take credit cards so bring cash. A decent place if you're not expecting much.

Value for money, close enough to airport if you want somewhere to just crash out and is directly across from tube. My bed gave me the sorest back imaginable but It was okay

Staff weren't that nice and the hotel could do with some updating!! If you didn't lock your room door every time you went in or out the door wouldn't shut properly.

It was not the greatest hostel. No warm welcome, more of a skeptical acceptance than anything. We didn't see anybody at all. Almost like a desolate atmosphere!

On a positive note, it is right next to a tube station, FREE WI-FI, close by a supermarket, near Heathrow, and with plenty of cheap eateries nearby. Staff was very helpful and friendly. For me the location was great. Unfortunately the beds were very squeaky and the tube station is very noise. You should buy a couple of earplugs like I did. I had 2 very good roommate. I was lucky for 7 nights with them. Don't forget it,this is a hostel not a hotel! It is not family friendly.

Great hostel to spend a cheap weekend in London. Opposite the underground station which is great. Simple facilities but clean. staff nice and friendly. A bit noisy sometimes with trains but not enough to put me off the place.

I arrived with the idea of staying a week, i stayed 1 night and decided to spent an extra £30 a night to go somewhere else. Honestly, the staff tried to overcharge be by £40, the radiators were stuck on full and had no way of lowering, people were living in the rooms so there was no space for your own stuff, no showers... just overall DONT STAY HERE, spend more money and stay somewhere else you would deeply regret staying there.

The best thing about this place is the 24 hour reception as I was working and coming back in the early morning. Rooms were basic but had everything you needed and the facilities were really good.
