Hostel is fine. But because it is right next to St. Paul's, you hear the clock going off like Big Ben every half an hour through the night. Take earplugs!


Although the hostel itself is lovely, including the facilities and the people it is far too close to St. Paul's which chimed every half an hour throughout the night. Was the worst sleep I've EVER had


I was a single female traveler on this trip and I felt comfortable and safe staying here. It was clean and the people were all friendly. I definitely see myself staying again in the future!


Was quite disappointed overall with this hostel. The staff member at reception, a male (middle eastern name) was not overly helpful and quite abrupt and rude. His English was also substandard which was not ideal. Facilities, location etc. were all OK


The lobby and restaurant area were nice. Friendly staff. The downstairs bathroom was not very good and the shower was out. The room was damp and kind of smelly. Average stay overall.


I really liked the triple bed set up so you could sleep in the dark during the sunlight hours or use the light and read in bed if you flipped the other way around. Clever.

This hostel has an incredible location so close to St. Paul's cathedral. The staff were so helpful and friendly. I would recommend this hostel to anyone visiting the capital as it is easy to access all the central and out lying attractions. The breakfast was stupendous and almost healthy!

Great value for your money! It is right next to St Paul's and the Central Line. The rooms and beds are very clean and the showers are not too bad. The only problem I had was that wifi was only available in the common areas.
