Overall a good experience for a hostel. Everything was clean, modern and newly refurbished. Rooms were cleaned often. Only criticism would be that the rooms were rather stuffy and the water pressure in the shower was awful!


Definitely one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in! Highly recommended for anyone! Location was great too with buses running constantly right outside the door and the tube station was only a short walk away! The rooms were really nice with curtains on the sides of the bed and all! Breakfast was included, staff was really really friendly, and the hostel was just great! Do stay here if you have a chance!

Very nice place to stay and located not too far from attractions in the south. Enjoyed my stay and the free breakfast was good enough for a traveller ending his journey. beds are very private with curtains around bed


Ok hostel, location is in apart of London that inst to crash hot but for the price you really cant complain!! friendly staff,


Baths/showers are never an issue - between the en-suite and the additional facilities in the corridors, there's more than enough to go around. Curtains are great, though the metal beds are super squeaky, and those curtains seem to make some people feel they can chat away loudly at all hours.
