This hostel is in such a lovely big red brick building in a really great (and safe) area. I was in a 12 bed female ensuite room. The ensuite was great - it had two toilet cubicles, two showers and a separate wash basin, with two mirrors so it had plenty of faciltities for all the people in my room. The beds also have curtains which can be pulled over so it's excellent if you like some more privacy. While the bar serves food, the kitchen facilities are quite poor, with only a microwave to cook.

Dear Guest, thank you for your feedback. We are really happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are very proud of our unique building and the service that we offer. While I understand your concerns about the self catering facilities, we have only limited space available. Many thanks again. Tom


been here before and like the hostel for the privacy you get with the curtains around the beds- noise largely depends on the people in your room though- if you're lucky everyone is considerate, if you're unlucky to end up with morons that seem to think that just because they can't be seen, they also can't be heard - we know the from toddlers ;-) facilities are ok, wifi worked well in the room, close tube ride to Oxford St etc
