An average hostel , not bed , but the room is a bit too small


Is the worst hostel ever. I don't recomended at all. =


Pros: - Friendly staff - Cleaning all the time - Half price drink - Free wifi Cons - Public common area (the pub) - Beds could be better


Not bad. For price pretty much what I had expected. Toilets could be cleaner. Girl in our room had her wallet stolen but she did leave it in room a risk. Breakfast basic but nice extra. Very hot inside and not enough power points in room so charge phones or cameras.


When I looked it up in the website to book, it seemed very nice and there were great reviews. But I was a little disappointed when I got there. One girl from the reception desk seemed to not care enough to explain me everything, and she had a very strong irish accent, which made it hard to understand. Also... Only few bathrooms, very small. The place wasnt as clean as Id like... but thats what you get for that money in London. The pub downstairs is nice, and breakfast was good.


It's ok to stay but there's no common rooms where you can stay and relax. You can only go down in the pub which is ok but not the same thing. There's also no kitchen at all, so no place qhere to do even a cup of tea or coffee. The cards to open the doors get demagnetized very often. The good things are that is a clean hostel and breakfast is nice, which are good things; there's a also a good space where to store the luggage if you need a place where to leave it for some hours.


Very nice hostel ! Forget bad reviews seen previously ! I wasn't sure about this hostel before going there, because of those bad reviews, but I had a great time ! Nice pub downstairs . This is a 3 bed-bunk level, so if you're afraid of high, you should say it when check-in ! Breakfast included which is nice. They got problem with key card , but they fixed it very quickly ! Staff is great, very friendly ! Location awesome, zone 1 with the tube !


Remember your passport/ drivers lisence or they dont let you check end!!!! end3ed up bunking in- cheers for the free stay green man!


I like the hostel, the staff, the pub, and it's in a really good location. I would go again. But I actually needed a lift, or some help for the luggage to let them into the room. The stair are high, no very wide, and it's really difficult go upstairs with everything. The same problem is with the stairs to down to the luggage security room. The breakfast is ok, milk, coffe or tea with toast with butter and jam. Maybe one thing to change about the breakfast is that there are not hot milk.

The location was great, very central and near the tube station. The pub was a nice place to spend down time over a beer. Admittedly, it is a little awkward that there is no other common area, but at quieter times, it is more than acceptable. Beds and bathrooms met my basic requirements, but the rooms are a bit cramped with triple bunks and a minimum of open floor space. The key cards quit working a few times, and the in-room lockers are purse size, but it was a cheap place to sleep.


Fairly basic hostel, but the value for money due to the low cost Vs. the location is off the charts. Pros: Location, location, location! 1/2 price drinks voucher on arrival was a very nice touch as is the free wi-fi. Cons: Rooms were clean, but a bit dingy. Showers were tiny with fixed shower heads and low water pressure. Overall, I'd have no hesitation in recommending this hostel- as long as you know what you're in for ;o)


It was too cramped and the rooms were too small for 9 people and their luggage! They should mention that you need to bring your own padlock for the lockers! There are no facilities to eat or prepare food or simply just relax! They need more plugs in the rooms!


This place is awful. -tiny, dirty, smelled terrible -No kitchen and no common room, -Key card stopped working all the time -Not enough lockers or space in the room This was the worst hostel I've stayed in. You get what you pay for but this place felt like they didn't really care about guests/quality of stay. The slogan (sleep it off) says it all. If you're desperate for a place to crash for a few hours after the bar this could work. If you want to enjoy your stay, go elsewhere.


While the staff and location for the hostel are great, it's location over a pub makes for some strange rules: there is no kitchen facility or refrigerator, which is not that unusual in itself, but the staff do not allow outside food to be eaten in the dormitories which is not made clear in the description of the hostel. Also, they do not accommodate for certain medical necessities, not allowing my friend to keep her blood insulin for her diabetes in the hostel fridge. decent experience


Breakfast poor... Bar on ground floor... Excellent.


The staff and the pub downstairs are really nice, giving the place a nice atmosphere. However, the facilities have some minors flaws, like the size of the bathrooms - too small.


Booked myself in and didn't stay for the night! Not very nice place to stay!
