Great location, rooms, staff- would be great to have a mini kitchen and at least a microwave n sink to fill water bottles xx and ashtray outside (shame, poor environment!)

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We are so glad you took advantage of our prime central location and we will be sure to pass on your kind comments about our staff. While we don't have a kitchen, we do have a microwave and a fridge in our common room, and the bar is always happy to fill up a water bottle for you. :) Our bar patio and rooftop terrace are both equipped with mounted and table top ashtrays as well for those who wish to use them as smoking areas. Take care!

Good location, excellent staff, a very friendly place with a real sense of community. Female part of the hostel with its own bathrooms and toilets is safe. Very good facilities. Excellent breakfast. The only problem is that the female rooms are facing a very busy street, and the windows provide no insulation. It was hard to sleep, so unfortunately I had to move to another hostel.

Thanks for leaving us your thoughts. It's always good to hear that people feel safe and comfortable with us, and we're glad that the Oasis provided that for you. We're also glad you enjoyed our free breakfast to start your day. Unfortunately, we are located on a busy High street in a major city so there is bound to be some noise. We do provide free earplugs at reception to help with that. It would be great to have you stay with us again. Safe travels!

Bunks are very uncomfortable and the flights of stairs up followed by a maze of a hallway was just ridiculous. Hostel world needs to start adding information for those that are mobility impaired!!!!!!

Loved my stay. The sheets and towel provided were clean. The showers and washrooms were also clean, large and functional. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The added breakfast was a huge bonus, as it was not only open relatively late, but also had a lot of choices. It did get quite noisy at night and it was a little far away from the main attractions, but it was a fantastic stay for the price.

Security was excellent in common areas however we experienced another guests card able to access our private room. Cleanliness was good in the rooms but poor in the bathrooms. The cleaners seemed to be arguing in the hallway each morning which was off-putting.

a bit too many doors and dragging a heavy suitcase up the stairs was quite a pain. but it was very clean and my stay was pleasant.

The showers, whilst doing the job, are not as pleasant an experience as they could be. Without circulation, your items just get wet and there is limited places to put down items brought into the bathrooms. Other than that - super swell place to stay, enjoyed in thoroughly!

Little bit of noisy. Probably the cleanest hostel I ever slept in. Good location, very close to underground stop, easy walk to Tower Bridge.

Thank you for your review. We love our convenient location and are pleased to see you liked it too. Unfortunately being in a very central location brings a lot of noise. Look forward to seeing you again next time you're in London.
