Great staff, cheap breakfast, cozy atmosphere in the common room/bar area. Only one problem... not enough sockets inside the rooms.

Awful toilets and showers, sinks too small even for dolls, smelly rooms I chose the hostel based on the review but those are fakes. 3 showers out of 4 with either too cold or too hot boiling water.


Good wifi connect, helpful staff and the downstairs bar area was pretty cool. The rooms were pretty clean and comfortable. The showers and toilets weren't too bad but they definitely weren't great. Would probably stay here again though.


Basic London hostel, you get what you paid for. Guys at the desk are great lads, awesome big and cozy common area. Showers are dirty. Room was ok, although 3 to a bunk makes you feel really cramped! People going in and out all night. Breakfast looked good, although you have to pay for it. Good location, very close to the tube!


Very good location, near underground station (Edgware Road), breakfast for 2£ (fruits, cereal, bread, jam, coffee, tea). Could be cleaner, but serves it purpose.


Nice hostel, nothing fancy, but comfortable, with a good atmosphere and staff.


The hostel was very very dirty and there were not enough bathrooms available for the amount of people staying there.


Cheap, close to London, helpful staff and good drinks prices. Exactly what we wanted! Would stay again.


The hostel is great, small, with small toilets, narrow corridors but excellent overall experience. The room was clean, the toilets and showers were cleaned regularly, I really have to compliment this as I haven't encountered a dirty shower and they were much cleaner than more expensive hostels, with similar rating. Staff was amazing, helpful, funny and nice. Kitchen/lobby/pub downstairs is awesome as well :) Greetings from Serbia Luka

A pretty good hostel close to the centre. Easy access to transport.


Extensive refurbishment required..also situated in the midst of a council estate, next door to a nursery.. Although had sky / cable t.v. - so that was something..


its a small very small hostel no space and the room was dirty however the location was ok


Very kind helpful and patient staff!!


the staff was friendly and the location was a really short walk to a tube station. i ended up extending my stay. there is no kitchen but there is a kettle and a microwave and the staff help you wash the dishes!
