Our stay has been pretty comfortable, thanks to the staffs, we could enjoyed all the time a nice atmosphere at the property. The only thing that didn't pleased us was the bathroom cleanness because it was dirty and wet all the time. Even so, we've been enjoying there with staffs and others customers. They were nice. Thanks a lot. We will go back there at the next travel for an excellent stay.

A good backpacker hostel. Room of 12 very little to fit all the backpackers' luggage but it's fine. Not a lot of toilets and showers but at the end it's ok. It's just about organisation. Warm athmosphere in the little pub situated on the ground floor.


No kitchen means depending on eating out or premade food, but they have a very decent breakfast and offer a 10% discount on the pub's food. The price is not too low, but not too high either, and the pub's location and atmosphere are just great. Spent just one night there on my way to bath, definitely would come back!

Area around the hostel wasn't bad. A few shops right around the corner of the hostel. Tube was within walking distance which contacted to the rest of the city. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hostel was located above a pub. Everything inside felt a little dated but overall still felt clean. Showers could have been a little better as it was leaking water all over the floors and the shower curtains were a little moldy. Overall still had a great nights sleep.


Toilets were terrible

very nice staff, nice bar on the gorund floor, just the room a bit crowded


I had a great time on my visit. There was always someone on staff as it was a 24 hour hostel, which was very helpful. All doors had a key pad lock and the codes change to keep it safe. The beds were comfy and there was enough room to move around in the aisle. The place was clean and the location was absolutely excellent.
