Great place to stay in a great location. Super hip part of the city but loud at night so if you want somewhere quaint dont stay here. The staff was super friendly and helpful, free breakfast, free wifi, luggage storage, and access to the bar next door. Our only problem was how hot and stuffy our room was and we only had 2 little fans while cramped with 5 other people. Overall a super cool experience at our first hostel!

The hostel is on the basic side but everything you need is pretty much on the doorstep and you can borrow hairdryers and stuff like that from the hostel. It maybe isn't the best for light sleepers, the hostel is on a main round with lots of bars. Its got get travel links, and its near at least 2 stations and has good bus links into town. There is lots to see and do in the area, bricklane and spitalfields are both a short walk away, everything is nearby and its has a really cool vibe.

Great location populated by clubs and boutique bars. The staff are helpful and polite. The cleanliness is poor but I have stayed in some amazing hostels.

Quirky but filthy. Translate and coffee bar good. Again, relying on a good location and transient crowd to not maintain properly. Reception has ripped, filthy and battered sofas/chairs. Dirt on floor in reception. Rooms not cleaned adequately. Weak surface clean everywhere and very tired furniture. Could be good but needs more care and attention. Could be first rate but just bumbling along.
