Great hostel with friendly vibe. Seconds from Hendon Central station with loads of shops and kebabies nearby. Staff were keen to help out. Hefty breakfast with well equipped kitchen. Clean showers and toilets with radio on- nice touch. In the morning the air was a bit heavy and damp due to everyone's breathing which doesn't happen in other hostels- need better ventilation or a dehumidifier maybe? The oven also needs to be fixed as it took over an hour to cook a frozen pizza. Overall great!


Awful! The guy who ran the place was a bit of a nutter and resolved problems by shouting at guests. The bar was dimly lit and looked intimidating when you first go in. None of the reading lights or power points worked, and the stove had come apart so when you open the oven door you burn yourself. I think it was the unfriendly unhelpful guy that was the main problem. On the plus side, they had a code for the main hostel area, and for your dorm which they changed everyday, so security was good.


Great hostel in Haussman style building. Comfy beds, in a clean environment. Staff were very friendly and eager to help.
