This hostel definitely caters to groups of screaming school children. The dorm room was not cleaned everyday, and some guests had left their take out food to mold on the common shelves. The ensuite bathroom was cleaned daily, but somewhat overused, and there weren't many other bathrooms. Space was tight, and my fellow guests were less than polite about storing their luggage out of the way. Laundry on site was cheap.
if you are in a top bunk you must climb up two sets of ladders past 2 beds to get to the top.. the ladders are not sturdy and noone has any idea about the lockers under the beds.. the staff dont tell you much. and its 5pds for a towel you must buy. all in all its a great location and the facilities are decent enough.. rooms are clean and there is a toilet and shower in each room.. decent place to stay
My friends and I were satified with this hostel. It is quite well-located, it's easy and quick (20 to 30mn) to go to central London by bus or subway. The staff was nice, there is someone 24/24 at the reception. The bedroom was small for 6 but we had a bathroom inside (it was nice to to have to get outside of the room) and anyway, it was just a place for sleeping so it was OK. If I come back in London, I'll probably book this hostel again.

Very small rooms, but I can live with it. Very clean.
Stayed for 3 days - it was good.Location is perfect,people are friendly,rooms are a little bit small but there is just enough space,bahtrooms are clean and everything was working.There was a neat "common room" where you can chill and watch TV.All in all it is a nice place to.
Rooms too small and beds too short. Some bathrooms were not properly cleaned, some toilets not functioning properly. Not room for everyone in breakfast room. Good, cheap, cosy bar. Internet good.
Bathroom floor would get very wet & slippery whenever someone had showered- a mop or something kept in there to clean up after showers would have been good. Also bag hooks inside each curtained bed compartment would have been ideal.
My boyfriend and I booked a private room with en suite. The room was very compact!! Comfy bed, clean room and bathroom. The only thing bringing the room down is the cheap furnishings and poor handy work, i.e. Our remote had no back and the batteries were held in with duc tape and our shower head was broken away from the wall. Great location, accommodation in London is always expensive so it was ok for what we paid.
