Yeah, not bad. A bit weird, the place is an ex pub it seems so the only hangout place is what you see when you walk in. No kitchen, but a great location close to the tube station, a couple of good pubs and the staff are fantastic, esp good old 'Yes for independence' Paul!

I would not recommend this hostel. Yes, the staff was friendly and the downstairs bar seemed kind of cool, but the facilities were terrible. It was shabby and run-down. The rooms were so cramped I couldn't stand to be in them longer than just to catch some sleep. The triple bunk-beds are extremely uncomfortable. If you're just looking for a place to crash and could care less about a comfortable stay, I suppose this could be your place, but they charge you for everything they can.

Great hostel! It's in a good location and just a short walk from the tube. The staff are amazing, definitely adding to the whole experience! The rooms are small, but it's still good value for money.

The was a great hostel, I only booked a night as a stop over and ended up staying over a week. Great facilities. Love the location....very central, loved the movie nights, and the manager Paul was one cool cat.

It's very cheap which is great, but anything you need extra has extra charges (locks for lockers, breakfast, towels, etc). It's a pretty good place to crash though.

Definitely the location! For that small amount of money you get to stay in the center of London. Staff is friendly, facilities are OK. Bring your own padlock. I would recommend this hostel.

Excellent hostel. Paul was hilarious. We weren't the greatest guests, drank a bit too much and spoke a bit too loud, and they handled the situation perfectly. I would definitely stay here again.

Great place to stay for a visit to London. Facilities in the hostel are OK, although I feel that lockers have to be given either for free or for some deposit. Also, some bathrooms deserve maintenance as it isn't always possible to control temperature. Finally, some beds make a lot of noise, causing everyone to wake up if the person on it moves during sleep. Very annoying!

Bathrooms weren't the greatest and the bedrooms were a bit cramped with all the bunkbeds squished in. It's a friendly hostel though and the guy working there (Paul?) was lovely. We liked the bar downstairs!

Great Hostel, amazing staff, cheap beer, good selection for Breakfast, very close to tube and bus links to whole city. 24hr reception is very handy. Paul is a Legend.

Felt okay, because nice staff and beds comfy enough; Location isn't really in the center, but it's safe; not too far from Camden, or even Oxford street. I really didn't like the bathrooms though, very small and not so clean.

The hostel is conveniently located about 5 mins walk from edgware road station, and in terms of location, security and comfortability, I would give 2 thumbs up for this place. Kudos to the staff managing it. The room was albeit small for 9 people but it had a good atmosphere.

The staff and the general atmosphere are really great. Although it seemed like the lock for our room was deactivated most of the time, the fact that only a staff member can let us into the general dorm area makes this hostel a lot more secure than most. The lockers were not reassuring but we didn't end up feeling like we needed them. The bar downstairs, great location and cheap breakfast are all major pluses! The bathrooms could definitely be a lot cleaner but I've seen worse.

Above a pub and serves Vegemite for breakfast. So would definitely stay again!

I appreciated the free computer in the lobby and the atmosphere was good for meeting people; however, the toilets and showers were quite dirty and in need of repair. The people were nice, and the breakfast was cheap and convenient, but I would not choose this hostel again due to the bathroom facilities.

Stayed for two nights here in the 10 bed mixed room. 10 beds = two triple decker beds + two double decker beds in a 5x5 meter room. Very very cramped room. Rooms are locked using number combination locks. No keys. Lockers are small. There's one bath, one toilet and one bath toilet to share with everyone. Wifi is good. Distance from the nearest Underground (Edgware Road) is good. Walking distance from the London Central Mosque.

Staff was really great, clean bathroom and bedroom, beds are a bit cramped but nothing too terrible for the price, close to the tube, bar was a bit pricey but nice to have right there for solo travellers. Overall nice experience and I would stay here again.

Triple bunks were extremely squeaky and inconvenient. Only two power points for a room of 6. Bathrooms were of wildly differing sizes but were all equally unclean. Bedrooms were TINY with barely any floor space.
