The staff are not around when needed like for checking out or for the breakfast refill. The have no clear outfit telling us they are staff or customers (did not look obvious to me!). And a smile, would be much appreciated (in general it is desapointed and poor, except for the manager who was lively and really helpful). The common areas and atmosphere could be improved, poor lighning and ambiance. Facilities generally satisfying and good value for money.

For the price we paid it was perfect. Only disadvantage was there was a bit of noise on the one night from the pub, but it was to be expected.

The room was large which was great. Also, surprisingly, being above a pub and next to a dance club was not a problem. It was quiet enough to sleep at night, even on a Friday and Saturday night and even with single glass windows! The worst part by the far was the bathroom situation. There is one very small toilet (you have to stand over the toilet to close the door) and one shower room for 8 rooms or so. There was a lack of hand soap and paper in the shared toilet and no towels in the room.


Nice place with a tipical pub downstairs. Really helpful staff. Highly recommend to whoever is looking for a nice place for not a whole lot of money.

The staff is nice. The cleaness is average. The hostel is near to a bar, what is very good for those who like to drink.


Very good value for money, with huge, clean rooms and very friendly staff.

The best of this hostel is the price (the breakfast is good and it's include) . It give you all you need if you only want stay to pass the night and sleep. The worst thing is if you feel cold you must pay a heater and the bed have hair, very unpleasant. It's too far to go walking to the center, you must pay an oyster card and you spend 35 minutes to the centre because of the subway and the walk.
