I'd stayed the hostel for 4 days. At first the reason I booked it because It was recommended as the best hostel in London on the website "Hostel World". so I booked it, but I think everyday staffs do not clean all of the toilets. Besides, when toilet bowl was clogged for several days, it didn't get solved. So for me using a toilet was very bad. Please mind clearness of all of the roos in this hostel.
The rooms where small and the lockers where also tiny. The bathroom wasnt really clean and the state of the building looked old. The staff was helpful though, and we loved the guy in the bar.
Best and friendliest staff you can possibly think of!! We could have breakfast on our arrival day. Free towels and luggage storage and location is perfect - 5 minutes walk to the Houses of Parliament. Only negative thing are the mattrasses. Need to be renewed urgently, not comfortable at all and very saggy. However I would stay there again!
This hostel is in a fantastic location, very close to the tube (Lambeth North), and within walking distance of the waterfront, London Eye, Westminster, Big Ben etc. The staff here were extremely helpfull and friendly, which is what stood out for me the most during my stay. The bar in the lobby is fun as well. My only compaint would be the cleanliness of the bathrooms. Note that this place is beside Waterloo Station, so the trains are somewhat loud, however, it didnt effect my sleep.
I enjoyed that I could have a pint or two and then just walk upstairs to my room. Your staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. We REALLY appreciated that u printed off our boarding passes for us because finding an internet cafe proved harder than we thought! My only complaint would be the door to our room was very hard to open and slip through with our large rack sack but I don't know how to fix that. I will be giving a good review on trip advisor when I get home. Thanks Walrus :)
