A lot of random unforeseen charges. Make sure you bring a padlock and towel. Also, breakfast isn't bad, it costs £4.50 I think.

Hi there, Sorry to hear about your disappointment. We apologize for any inconvenience caused. We must also point out that it's very common in hostels (especially in London) to charge for a padlock and a towel, since these are things that usually a backpacker brings along. That's why for our private rooms we actually provide the towels for free. Kind regards


I expected a more willing and likeable staff
