I stayed here for two nights on my way to Europe. The hostel is in a safe, central location in London, and is basic but clean and comfortable. All the long term residents I was staying with, and who I spoke to at breakfast were really friendly, and I think the fact that some of them have stayed there for years speaks volumes about this place! For £15/night you can't go wrong

The beds were very uncomfortable. If you make a peep after 11, people will be throwing a fit. Like other people mentioned, it's almost all extended stay residents. Most were nice, but some creepy. Somehow my underwear disappeared when i was doing laundry.. The shared bathrooms were disgusting (trash never taken out, no towels so floor was constantly wet, smelled horrible all the time). I would NOT book this place in the future. I tried to change hostels, but would have lost my $ bc of 72h polic


Showers were mouldy and curtain was dirty.

I'm booked only one night and it's was good. Cheap price for the location and the number of bed ( 10£/night ) Just few things : the room was little wet and the breakfast finish very early. I recommend


I think the TV lounge closes too early leading to people sitting in corridors and doorways to chat. The breakfast is OK and the dinner was a surprise, in fact very good. The bed was very comfortable and quite. The shower unit I first used was poor as the water flow was too weak to have a proper shower.+


I had a very nice stay. Thank you!


Friendly staff, clean and cheap. Rooms are very spacious. Only issue I had is that reception does not rent towels and guests need to be made clearer about this!! Luckily I had a kind room mate. I recommend this hostel :)


Best value for money! Excellent!


The hostel is based on the long terms customers, that is the reason there is kind of the strange atmosfere for travellers who stay here just for night or two. The staff is pleasant and professional, I mean in the reception. I keep coming back and would recommend the hostel, but it is bussy and prebooked by long stay customers.
