Kitchen and lounge are nice, but the rest could do with a good refurb. Electrical showers, run down washrooms and the room I was staying in (4-bed dorm) was rather bleak. They do have these cages underneath the beds for your luggage, however, there was only one you could lock as the others were broken. No reading lights, no USB chargers, etc. Cheap, sure, and reasonably clean, but really nothing to write home about.
Good value for money but they should do something about the mice. Cute mice, though.
Value for money! Single en-suite for £25 (weekday)...I stayed in huge dorms that were more expensive. It's not the Hyatt, but does what it says on the tin.
The beds and mattresses are brilliant, the coffee in the pub downstairs is free and very good, but only two loos and two showers for the entire hostel aren't great. Bit cramped. Alright for 30 quid a night I guess...it's central London, after all.
I spent a night in the 8 bed dorm. The place is clean, that's a plus, however, the bunks were rather cheap and shaky, the room damp and some mould on the wall next to the window, with the paint slowly coming off the wall. The showers aren't great, actually most public swimming pools have nicer ones. WiFi costs extra, of course. All of this is a joke for the price of almost £20 a night. Unless physically forced to I will certainly not spend another night there.
The location is brilliant and the view simply stunning. Luckily it is remotely situated, so the place doesn't get too crowded - I had one of the dorms to myself one night. Great kitchen/lounge - it does even have a flatscreen and Sky. Highly recommended!
Royal Mile is alright for what it is, i.e. clean, brilliantly located and packed with friendly staff and long-termers. Nothing glamorous about the 8-bed-dorms though...the slamming fire-doors are a bit annoying when sober.
Great pool, nice rooms (stayed in a double, no idea what the dorm looks like). Decent place.
