The whole hostel is very dirty and smells musty. Also the "common room and kitchen" is much too small for at least half the people staying there.
Not the best hostel I have ever stayed at but not the worst. It is good if you just want a place to stay in London for the night. I'm not the biggest fan of the three bed high bunk beds but they were ok. Good location if you are traveling using the Victoria train station.
Good location, the showers were tiny and a bit dirty, you can't put your clothes back on without getting your feet all wet and dirty. The lockers in the rooms were small, big enough for purses but not bags. My mattress was thin and incredibly uncomfortable. But this is all expected for a hostel.
There were mice in the kitchen!!! Wouldn't say it's the cleanest place. Staff were nice though!
