Great Hostel. Good rooms, bar, food, drink etc. only fault was that it would have been good to have more than two toilets on my floor! There was a staff party on one of the nights i was there which made the bar very fun and lively!
Fairly good location - 5 mins walk from Russell Square. The guy on reception was nice when i checked in and so was another female on reception, but the staff cleaning the rooms were not friendly at all. They simply walked in and stared at us - no greeting or anything. Dont expect too much from the rooms - bare, basic furniture. Ok if you are just using it to crash at night. The lounge/common room was good except about four members of staff (or their friends) came in and filled it up.
GREAT hostel. Great location, great vibe. Has its own bar thats open late. Has all the facilities you need (laundry, travel shop etc). Rooms are nice and fairly newly furbished by the looks. Definately would recommend.
Is in very good location if you wish to party (i.e. right on beach). However u will get outside noise (music) coming in until late at night. The beds are large and comfortable. The bathrooms were adequate but needed cleaning far more regularly. Signs need to be installed telling people not to flush toilet paper down as the toilet got blocked several times and was not cleaned until next day! Pool is nice. There is little area to socialise inside but there is a resturant and bar just outside.
Hostel was dirty - sand absolutely everywhere. They had obviously not cleaned under/around the beds in a while as i found old underwear, shorts etc. There were stains on the sheets (and we had to make our own bed!). There is no common area for socialising/meeting people. Its literally a place to sleep and thats it. No additional services such as laundry etc.
good location - easy access to nightlife and markets (within walking distance). no major problems that i can think of.
