We loved it! The directions to find it were very helpful and easy to follow! The staff was super friendly and it was a very clean facility! Would recommend to others! Bunkbeds are stacked very high.. But it was an adventure. :)

I stayed during the week and it was very very quiet. In a 9 bed dorm I was the only person sleeping one of the nights, the beautiful pub downstairs was just as quiet, like my own private lounge, only with beer on tap. I had some of the best sleep I've had in a hostel as a result. Showers for men were all pretty ropey and the actual common room was small and not very comfortable. But overall I really liked it. Weekends likely to be very different to my experience. Not that close to central

I was staying in a 9 bed female dorm, the room was quite crowded, and there are only two electricity plug which is on the side of one of the bed, when someone is sleeping in there, it is quite hard to reach the plug, and the plug is not working really well. staff are friendly, breakfast are good.

Really nice hostel about a 10 minute walk from Shepard's Bush Market Station. Beds are sturdy, clean and decent, and the lounge in the bar area is awesome. Great beer, comfy couches and an awesome staff. The only things you could complain about would be the extremely tiny bathrooms (that house both showers and toilets), and the upstairs lounge area, as it really only has a couple of chairs, a table, and a TV in the corner. Would definitely recommend as it's a great deal for the price!

My favorite place to stay in London. Hostel is slightly hidden and small which add a lot of atmosphere and let you sleep properly at night.

I really liked this hostel however my dorm had some horrible people who were very inconsiderate of others in the room. Other than that it was ok. Thanks to the staff for all your help!

Nice small hostel a bit out of town which meant you could get good night sleep. Beds were comfy, wi fi fast and breakfast was a nice addition also. Showers were small which meant they got dirty very easily

I like how the hostel is smaller than most. This meant everyone got to socialize more and the general atmosphere of the place excellent. Had a good stay. Awesome staff :)

Really enjoyed my stay. Eggs are a nice addition to the breakfast. No stove in the kitchen but there are so many cheap food places around it's not like you need it. Thanks Bart for your help

All in all it was okay. But the humidity in the dorm was too high even we opened the window. There was molder on the wall. The showers and toilets were too small.
