Hostel has a nice vibe, but facilities were not what I was expecting. Water flooded out from the en-suite shower room (even into the common corridor) as the shower drainage did not drain water quick enough during showers. After reporting it, they said someone would fix it the next day, but still no change in situation. Wifi available only in reception area (didn't work in TV room for me), which get very crowded when huge tour groups arrive.


Too late check in at 03pm

Not entirely impressed, staff were not very friendly. Made the simple mistake of thinking breakfast was free and when a staff member told me I needed to pay (which I was quite happy to) it was in a rude and unfriendly manner. The location is good, the wifi is free and the bar is cheap, however my room was very cramped, the lights didn't work, the beds unstable and the toilet outside our room was filthy. YHA is A LOT better and shall be staying there next time.

Compared to other hostels, I felt there was space in the bedrooms (no bunk beds 20 cm below the ceiling... and the light bulb). Staff is friendly and the hostel is well located as the Tube station is not far and many buses connect it to the main landmarks.


I was there for one night with my 7 year old son. We had a room that was right next to the female shower room which was quite noisy till late at night. I know someone has to be there but I wish it had been someone else!


Thanks everyone all people very kind and hardly very clean room good good
