Stayed for one night in Jul 2014. This is definitely a party hostel. Not that it's a bad thing, just be aware going in. They have beer pong balls and cups available at the bar if that gives you a frame of reference. Stayed in an 8 bed mixed. Beds were comfortable and clean, downside is that there was only two outlets for the room. There's good security, key cards to access the hostel from the bar and for each room. Staff was friendly and there's easy access to London Bridge tube.
I didn't stay here long but it was a pretty good stop to end my eurotrip. Good atmosphere, close to central tube stations and situated in a fun part of London. The dorm I stayed in was HUGE but all the people were pretty friendly and the staff helpful.
Best parts include the location, nice showers, lockers underneath the bed/overall security. Worst part was that I didn't find the staff helpful for my questions. They seem a little bit cold and not as welcoming, but it could just be because of so many people coming in and out on a day to day basis. Other than that small drawback, I enjoyed my overall stay and would recommend it if you know what you are doing in London!
lockers in rooms:) AMAIZING views and atmosphere from roof top! power point at each bunk bed yay! luggage storage is quite expensive and not always available :( - we asked for directions to a certain bus stop for us to get to the airport the man who helped us did so in return for a cig...which is weird however he started telling is he was drunk then pulled his pants down at the bus driver who then refused us, we then had to get a taxi to the airport costing £15 very unprofessional
Fun palace to stay. The common room was not very social but the bar had a good atmosphere. The large dorm had a skylight which made the 4:30am sunrise a pain. The hostel attracts a lot of partiers which was fun.
Me and my girlfriend had a private double. The room was clean, all though the bin was full when we checked in, and there was a pair of shoes there, but the cleaning lady fixed that. It's a 20 min walk to the Thames, staff is friendly and helpful. But as far as value goes, it is so loud there, never a quiet moment all night, and hard to get some sleep, because of guests just walking, or cleaning starting at 7 in the morning. It was loud. Showers was boiling hot without an option to change it.
wifi was pretty bad and the girls showers were disgusting but location is excellent! If you like walking there's heaps to see by foot and saves on the expensive underground tickets. Free breakfast is also good and they provided free walking tours of London. I would stay here again!

Safe and close to the Tube. Tried using their movie theater but projector was broken and staff didn't know when it would be fixed. Computers were down as well. Good quality otherwise
Overall a decent enough hostel, the computers were down during my stay which wasn't great, you also had to pay extra for things such as towel rental which I wasn't aware of. The room itself was comfortable enough, though it got unbearably warm during the night. The attached bar/restaurant was cool with drinks offers and live sport being shown.
Extremely dirty, very few shower for many people and in very bad conditions. They charge you for everything. excellent pub downstairs though and the staff is nice.
Excellent value for money! I really enjoyed my one night stay here. Will stay here next time in London
My friend and I really enjoyed our stay in bath! The staff was awesome and mark and Blake made us feel really welcome! Would definitely come back again.
The bar in the basement was really fun just to chill out at. The free breakfast was nice, but there was no kitchen to use for lunch or dinner which was a little inconvenient.
I was satisfied with the stay. Staff was friendly enough, and the bar atmosphere was pretty good.
The pub is funny, but I didn´t like this hostel. I have no more comments about it and surely, I won't come back there.
Fun hostel, but facilities were not ideal. Toilets were broken for about half my stay. Otherwise, pretty good hostel.
We just went to London for 5 days which was mostly uncommon in comparison with all the other guests. Most of the guests are touring through Europe, which is amazing because you can talk with a lot of people about anything! The atmosphere was also good, there are a lot of young travelers and the bar was crowded also with local people. In short it was a great hostel to meet new people location is good near the subway and free breakfast is included

We were pretty unlucky here, as the showers were down whilst we stayed in the hostel, so we shared three showers with all the other hostel guests. This was unfortunate because everything else was fantastic. The bathrooms could have been slightly cleaner but were still good. No internet in the rooms which was a shame but great reception in the bar downstairs. We also loved the rooftop terrace.
