Great location, could be better Small (semi clean rooms - it s okay) Super friendly staff Atmosphere is okay, nothing special I've seen much nicer hostels but I guess value for money is very low in London

Nice place. They have nice little cages that you can lock with a regular lock underneath each bed, which is great! Good location, close to Liverpool Street station which is what I used to take a coach bus to and from the Stansted airport for Ryanair flights. The place was clean. Price was nothing to get excited over, but it was a fair price to pay. Bathrooms a little small.

Good location but the dorm I was in (4 bed, dorm G) was extremely small and had no shower in the ensuit (there were very tiny ones in the hallway outside). If more than 2 people were in there it was a tad uncomfortable. Apparently the six bed was much bigger with the shower in the ensuit which would have been handy (apparently dorm Q is nice!). Lots of banging from the room above. So maybe avoid this dorm if you can. Lots of people staying there were working, so a little harder to socalise

Great hostel in a great location, but sleeping is impossible. It bills itself as a party hostel, so noise and late night music is to be expected. What makes it impossible to sleep, even with ear plugs, is the sonic boom that rumbles through the entire place every time someone opens and closes a door. Stay, but don't stay expecting to get rested.

10 min walk to underground stn (Old Street and Shoreditch), lots of busses accessible as well. Staff was very good; friendly & helpful. Wifi was excellent. Cleaned regularly. Lots of stairs though so be mindful if that is impacts you. They target 18-35 age range and everyone seemed to fall within this. Lively area with lots of things to do. Restaurant (Translate) next door is great for all meals + discounted for hostel guests. 10/10 would stay again and recommend.

Cool location. Staff are perhaps too casual in their interaction with guests. Bring your own lock they're expensive. Towels feel like tissue paper. Nice atmosphere at breakfast, super simple food but it's nice to sit with everyone and meet new people.

Compared to a 6 bed dorm that I shared last week, the 4 bed was awful. You can hear people crashing about upstairs throughout the night. It is not ensuite as such. The 6 beds have a shower in the ensuite, the 4 bed does not. The showers are in the hallway and one was covered in hair when i used it. So disappointing considering I paid more for this room and thought that would be of a higher standard, if not the same as a 6 bed.
