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.

Good double bed room for this money - spatious and clean. A bit chilly, because rooms do not have heaters and windows could be better, but there is possibility to borrow a heater. Breakfast was ok, hot water always available and nice pub downstairs.

Best value for money you can get for a double room. Staff a bit rude. Breakfast ok, location good to reach from city centre, rooms are clean and spacious. If you're only there to sleep, this is probably the best place you can find in London. Nice pub downstairs.
