Uncomfortable and dirty. Fine location.


The staff were amazing and the wifi was great. The showers are switch between freezing cold and burning hot, though.

the location is good and very quite, the staff is very friendly and helpful, but it is a bit too crowded and narrow. The kitchen is tiny, you can't watch TV because it is also the eating room. The bar downstairs is very nice and cosy.


Fair deal for the 5 nights stay :) female bathroom is very clean. A bit crowded for the 3 decks bunk beds. Location is good which u can even walk to the tube station. Overall is a fair price for the service and facilities provided.


i would come back definitely. but hot water supply is on and off. even when u are showering. my first day, there was no hot water.


What you see in pictures is not the real thing.the building is old.the dorms was old and dirty.only the female dorm is nice.and the only thing that was good it was the lobby with nice sofas but the stuff closes this area at 23.00every night.also the internet that offers you was very poor.at least I met some nice people.

Very friendly and helpful staff, but overall worse than expected. I've been in many hostels yet but the dorms here are really bad: too many beds, and extremely uncomfortable old matrasses!! the facilities are very few, extremely small and in a quite bad technical condition. The pub downstairs is defenitively the best part of the hostel. It has a nice atmosphere and the breakfast there is good. The location is ok: far from any tube station, but nice resteraunts and pubs in the streets around.
