Great historic building. Facilities could be better. Convenient base to explore from.

Don't expect too much when staying here. They give you the basics and that's about it. A room with a bed. The rooms are very small and there isnt much room to keep your stuff besides on the floor or in storage. The fact that it costs £5 for a towel (£3 deposit) was kind of irritating after spending about $250 for 3 nights. The location of the hostel is decent, its near Elephant and Castle so you can use the tube to get anywhere from there. All in all, if you just need a place to sleep, go here.

The bunk beds were not secured into the walls, meaning if either bunkmate flipped over in the night then entire bed shook like it was going to collapse. The 10 pound deposit for the room key was also a little ridiculous. The walls were paper thin and no one came to quiet the other rooms even when they were screaming at 3 AM. However, the location was very convenient, just a quick 10 min tube ride could get you into Piccadilly Circus. Night buses also stopped right outside the hostel.

The worst place I slept in England—and I slept outside of a bathroom at a bus station. Staff was fine with screaming teenagers all day long, but kicked out anyone having a conversation at a normal decibel level after 11 pm. Lockers cost £3 per access—everytime you open it, it costs £3 to lock it again. If you need to brush your teeth, your toothbrush will cost you £3.

Bonne auberge de jeunesse, assez propre, accueillante. Personnel sympathique. Néanmoins, dommage qu'il n'y ait pas de wifi dans les chambres et que le petit déjeuner ne soit pas inclut.

Bonne auberge de jeunesse, assez bien située dans Londres. Le personnel est accueillant et l'auberge est propre. Néanmoins, il est dommage que l'on ne puisse avoir accès au wifi dans les chambres et que le petit déjeuner ne soit pas inclus dans le prix.

L'hostel n'est pas très loin du métro et un arrêt de bus est juste en face. Les chambres sont petites mais biens pour le prix! Les douches étaient assez propres sauf le premier jour ou il y avait quelques cheveux mais c'est le risque dans les douches communes! Les casiers ne sont pas dans les chambres ce que je trouve dommage! Par contre il n'y a que des groupes de jeune style colonies ou sorties scolaires qui font un bruit fou qui courent et gueules dans les couloirs c'est très agaçant!

For the short notice booking it was great , but our dorm door never closed properly, in the rooms there were no cages for your bags to have them properly protected. The lockers downstairs 3£ for one time use is a bit of day light robbery . Forget something and you're paying way too much. To store a bag

El peor Hostel de todos los que he gestado. Las camas chirrían, los colchones son de espuma, incómodos y dan mucho calor porque no transpiran. Las almohadas finas como el papel. Duchas con agua ardiendo que no puedes regular y que además funcionan apretando un pulsador que dura segundos. El personal también de lo peor. No quisieron ni hacerme cambios para guardar mis malestar en las taquillas, que por cierto cuestan 3£ el día si tienes maleta grande. El peor desayuno que he visto, y cuesta3£

What is the difference between a London Hostel and a refugee camp? A refugee camp meets minimum standards for available space and sanitation per person.

Very cheap and clean. Could do with some reminder notices for guests not to hang around loudly socializing in corridors and near lift at 2am, 3am, 3:30am etc etc. Also it would be helpful to have some kind of shelf in the showers for soap to make those 10second blasts of water a more useful time.

Falta um espaço para fazer comida ou guardar algo refrigerado.

The place is extremely clean, staff is friendly n helpful. room is great. location is perfect. The only thing I didn't agree with was lockers. you have to pay every time you open the locker to check your luggage. It should be a daily charge n u open locker anytime you want. It is a great place xxxx

Spotlessly clean, but room very small. Didn't realise there was no wardrobe/drawers. However if you just need a place to sleep for the night it is ideal. Location on a busy main road means traffic noise but then again this is London! Staff very helpful and a great cooked breakfast.

Awesome location, great staff ,dorms were really affordable and full of friendly faces. The only slight negatives were no kitchen and had to pay for Washing. However the location made up no kitchen as there are small restaurants all up new lent road.

Great location, nice staff, nice common room and good services. The only problem was that our double room was too small: we couldn't open our two luggages at the same time because there was no enough space on the floor.

Das Zimmer war extrem klein. Ohne Stuhl oder Tisch. Toilette, Dusche und Geschirr beim Frühstück wurden geputzt, waren aber nicht sauber. Das Personal war sehr nett und hilfsbereit.
