Lovely crowd and longer terms stays available if you just moved to the area. Building has ALOT of stairs so getting to bed takes some energy. Breakfast not provided which meant spending the extra funds on food but communal kitchen has all utensils and pans available if you want to cook up a meal. The showers are a bit awkward to use and don't offer much in the way of privacy but the pressure was good and the temperature perfect. The rooms are bright, clean and bunks weren't too short.
Great relaxed pub downstairs with staff 24/7. Simple but great value breakfast available and ample outlets for charging laptops. Computers available for use and maps/local activities available. 15 minute walk to Oxford street and 500 meters from a tube stop. Rooms are clean but small. Bunks are squeaky but they have lockers in the rooms to hire. Showers were too hot or cold with low pressure. Bring your own towel as the ones for PURCHASE are poor quality. Longest stay possible is 3 weeks.
Great downstairs bar with a relaxed atmosphere. Impressive buffet breakfast that will set you up for the day. Squeaky bunks and flimsy linen but it will keep you warm. Lockers by the beds for hire but make sure you identify your bunk on arrival as it is a very communal space. Organised activities/pubs crawls and maps available for sight seeing. Located in a quiet area right on the Thames and a 5 -10 minute walk to tube stop. No close by shops/restaurants or cooking facilities at the hostel.
