The toilets got clogged, both for the shower and the toilet. So if you showered, the water will be up to ankle length and won't go down. The dorm I stayed in was facing right on the main street, so it was normal to hear heavy traffic which made it extremely hard to sleep in, also there are only 2 sockets in each dorm. That means 14 girls had to share 2 sockets, which led to lots of conflict and unhappiness as people often removed other people's plugs to plug their own.

Thanks for taking time to leave us some feedback! We are very sorry that you found so many problems during your stay. We promise to look in to the issues you have raised here. Regards


Although there was a booking error between a double and a twin room the staff were very helpful and sorted it out very quickly. Sanitary bins need to be checked more frequently as one was over flowing and maybe better hair dryers in bathroom would be appreciated. Clean room, aluminium beds and plenty of plug sockets. I would definitely stay again!

Hello there, Thanks for the nice feedback, it means a lot to us that you enjoyed your stay! Hope to see you again soon! Safe travels!


Staff was friendly. Beds were clean. I loved that everyone a locker under the beds. The bathrooms were newer, but the cleanliness was only okay. When it was time to sleep, the hostel rooms were quiet, and u wouldn't even know there was partying going on downstairs. It was well within walking distance of the London Bridge metro station, and the people who worked there were friendly. I would definitely stay here my next go-ahound in London.

Thank you for leaving us a review! It`s great to hear that you appreciated our location and the staff here.Bye for now and hopefully we will see you again!


Atmosphere was good. Loud in the evenings because it's connected to two different bars. I would say to add more seating in the reception area or some other space for people who want to use the Wi-fi in peace. It's difficult to do that on the lower in the bar with all the ruckus. Either add more seating or add some Wi-fi in the rooms. Overall a good experience: staff friendly and helpful, great location close to tube, clean bathrooms. Breakfast was so-so. Only 2 outlets in a 14 bed rm- no bueno.

Oasis is a nice quieter building down the road from the actual reception, which is good because it tends to be quieter and bad because there is no common room on site. That led to another guest keeping dairy products in the cage under the bed which stank the whole place out-had to go to the other hostel to ask staff to deal with it as the phone in place to contact them wasn't working. Otherwise it was clean, good facilities and lockers and I would stay again. Very expensive, but it's London.
