This is not the first time that I stayed in hostel in London, therefore I had an idea about what should I expect. The common/share area was really small, the internet was available only in the common, the showers has not temperature regulator and there was not enough room outside the showers, most the time the toilets were clean but a few times I found them not hygienic enough (such some urine around and also blood). The luggage room is not free (2 pounds/ bag) and clean ladies are very rude.
The hostel is really great. The rooms, the bathroom, the dinning room and the internet work perfectly, however the only problem was one receptionist, a girl, she was rude, not nice at all.
The hostel was brilliant. The beds in the room were well distributed considering the space. The kitchen was everything that you need for cook. The common rooms were good enough. However the best was the location, it is in the right place.
