This was my first hostel experience and loved it! The bed are so nice! I was warm and toasty every night that it was sometimes a struggle to get out from underneath. The breakfast was light with toast, cereal, fruit and a number of spreads including peanut butter which all travelers from the US were happy about including myself! The hallways could be a bit drafty but overall such an excellent experience, thank you!

Pros: Free breakfast, friendly staff, accessible location, kitchen facilities, wi-fi, free towels. Cons: bathrooms were constantly in a terrible state with the floors flooded with water. Trains/ambulances were loud, especially at night. Squeaky beds!

In general it was ok. The bad thing is that there are a lot of stairs and if you are carrying luggage it's a bit exhausting. And the bathrooms are not comfortable. The rest is ok. The people working there are excellent.

Es una muy buena hostal, limpia, con buena seguridad y la mejor ubicación, cercano a todos los lugares típicos que un turista visita en Londres.

El hostel si es muy economico, pero el lugar era muy sucio los baños super sucios, mi cama era un litera sin escaleras y tuve que subir y bajar con una silla y por la noche escuche como hubo una pelea justo afuera de mi cuarto...pero bueno cumplió su proposito no me paso nada pero sacrifique mi comodidad pero lo haría de nuevo porque ahorre la mitad de lo que hubiera pagado en otro hostal.

Everything was very good. But the kitchen was a little bit too small.

En general todo estuvo muy bien, solo un paree detalles, las camas están muy muy pegadas y no hay suficientes duchas. El desayuno estaba muy completo. Ah, la limpieza de los sanitarios muy mala.

The Hostel was great! Super clean,smelt like chlorine type clean. I was only there for one night but if I ever go back to London. I will stay there again in a heart beat. The bar area was super comfy and felt very homey. The bathrooms were the only down side but it wouldn't deter me at all.

War nur ein Nacht! Bin mit dem Zug angekommen und am nächsten Tag war schon mein Rückflug. Die Lage ist toll direkt an der Waterloo Station und in 5 Minuten zu Fuss zum London Eye. Frühstück war super und die Mitarbeiter waren super freundlich auch wen sie meistens allein waren und es halt so auch mal 5 Minuten ging bis man einchecken konnte.

We had a great time. The location can't be beat, the staff is great, and the atmosphere was a nice touch. The only complaint is that the beds squeak loudly when anyone moves. We would definitely come back.

I liked it here, one of London's best hostels for sure. For the solo traveler you may find it not great. There are no pub crawls or tours on offer to get to know others. But thats not to say you wont meet people here. The staff are nice enough. Lots of food shops near by. Tube station is easy walking distance.

Not a bad place to stay for a couple of nights. High points Location, staff, breakfast and a good bar downstairs. Low points were Wi-Fi and the noise from the nearby trains.
