1. Incredibly friendly manager - you made me feel welcome and respected from the moment of my arrival. Thank you. 2. I enjoyed talking to my roommates - we had great discussions about our lives in different countries; a memorable experience that made the hostel experience in general ever so worthwhile. 4. Accommodation was clean 5. Closely located to everywhere great about London! Possible improvements: 1. New shower heads in the bathroom required 2. An iron and ironing board please!

Accommodation and facilities werel corresponding the price level. We enjoyed the atmosphere we remembered from our student times (as two guys near our seventies).

I didn't like the hostel, it is an old building, dirty mattress, noisy room and poor facilities. I changed the hostel by these reasons so I don't recommend it.

Good: - located right Beneath tube stop, takes about 20 min into city by tube - supermarkets and fast food around - nice lady at reception Bad: - very dirty showers and toilets - mattresses should have been changed years ago - bunk beds even in double rooms - tiny rooms If you're only looking for a place to sleep this hostel is ok, otherwise avoid it.


It needs a renovation, because it's a bit shabby. It was cleaned every morning, which was good. They had cameras everywhere, which felt safe but also a bit scary. Pillows were hard. Located in a pretty bad area. Overall we were pretty creeped out by everything. But it is what you pay for!


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.
