Great value for your money, the location it's okay and the staff is helpful. Only two bathrooms for various dorms, sometimes too busy.

Good: The staff is AMAZING! Always pleased to help (Daniel & Patricia are the best). The location is perfect and safe at night. Free breakfast is nice but the brunch,hamburguer and tapas are delicious and not expensive. If you like beer you will love the bar downstairs and their beers menu. Bathrooms and shower were ok. Bad: Just 2 outlets in my room for 9 people.

Publove had friendly staff and had a good location in the South side of London. Downsides were that the facilities weren't the best - dust on the ledges and under the beds, hair in the washroom showers, no common area for travelers, and a lack of outlets to charge electronic devices.

The staff here was amazing! There was a bar where people could hang out but not really a common area where you could just sit and chill. Outlets in rooms were limited and wifi spotty but the friendly staff definitely made up for it! There was no kitchen.

Toilets and bathrooms need fixing, add more. Rooms are cramped up. Security locks need to be upgraded to modern ones. Breakfast was amazing. Location is supeb.

Great personnel! Really willing to help you! The bar downstatirs is cozy and with great environment ! Beds really comfortable and although the rooms and badrooms are small everything is clean and tidy! The only thing I would improve would be the badrooms, two showers for that much people ( my room was 12 out of 12 people) complicates everything.

GREAT location! walk right out of the underground and its across the street(a little hard to find) and next to the london eye. It is within the bar downstairs which is open 24 hours and there is a discount for guests staying there. The room had bunk beds 3 high and being on the bottom it was comfortable. But the room was very small and had no place to put my stuff and lockers were broken. The bathrooms/showers are gross too.. but that was all !

The pub below was a great place to unwind after arriving and the sleeping facilities were nice. There wasn't much access to outlets in the room so charging devices was a struggle but overall great experience and great value!
