Derek was extremely helpful and we especially appreciated the free luggage storage! The rooms are clean and comfortable, but I would suggest adding rubbish bins to them, and the bathroom as well. Regardless, it was a great stay, thank you for everything!

Derek Alexander is the owner. He was extremely nice and went out of his way to make sure I found the hostel and he provided me tips on things to do and how to get around.

Great staff, incredibly helpful. Location was close to the tube and lots of restaurants and supermarkets. I'll definitely recommend this hostel. Thank you for everything Derek!

Owner was very helpful and friendly. Hostel is above a bar but its quite so no need to worry about noise. Close to station, main street and local nightlife. Clean and tidy

The people who own it were absolutely lovely and were incredibly helpful. The bedrooms were clean (however a bin would have been nice), but the bathrooms and kitchen weren't clean. I understand that he's busy running his pub but the bathrooms and kitchen were pretty gross - saying that, the other guests are partly to blame too. Location was close to the tube and lots of restaurants and supermarkets. Apart from the dirty facilities, the place was great.
