It was perfect for my mom and I. For the money, it was definitely worth it, the only complaint I had was the wifi sometimes wouldn't work in the rooms. Other than that, I would recommend this if you want to be not more than 20 minutes away from central London by the tube and when it's afforable.

In a very scary neighbourhood pretty far away from any sights. Waited almost 10 minutes to be let into the building and then waited another 10 to check in. Checking in is all done without a computer so it took a very long time. The bathrooms were very cold at night and were dirty. All the showers were preset and only one had hot water. The rooms were very cold and dark and small, the bed were uncomfortable and in bad condition. Also felt really creepy that there was security cameras everywhere.

Nice location: near underground station, supermarkets around; comfortable bed; small fridge in the room. The bathroom was really cold at night and was mixed. The room had a bad smell, like if it was closed without air flow for a long time.

There were four showers but only two were working and only one had hot water. The reception closes at 10 pm and then no one can help after that. I do not recommend this hostel at all!

It was away from main centre but very easy tube n bus access. Supermarket close. Gentleman on reception nice and helpful. 3 day booking got us free washing machine use which was a bonus.Room and bathroom clean. Showers preset and only luke warm. There was only one bowl and spoon in kitchen (plenty ofplates) so when we ate we took turns to use it .The kitchen sponge and tea towel same for 3 days but worst thing was the bathroom cleaning bucket was put in the kitchen sink to fill - very unhygenic

2 min walk from Stepney tube station. Plenty of cheap food to grab around the hostel. The free washing machine usage (for 3+ nights stays) was really awesome. Public areas eg the bathroom and toilet were very clean.

I stayed at RMA for 10 days and it was a nice place to stay for my vacation in London. Security is good (they have CCTV), the neighborhood is composed most by foreign people but it is secure as any other place in the city. Cleanliness is OK, sheets were clean but they are old and need replacement in my opinion. Good value for money, I would definitely come back!

I liked the stay at RMA a lot. The room was cold and heating did not work, but on the other hand - it was pretty enough for oversleep, have a breakfast and go sightseeing! Fridge in the room, common kitchen, even washing and drying machine to use.. Kitchen and bathroom cleaned by staff of the hostel everyday.. If I stay in London again, I will return:) Definitely worth the money!
