The hostel was really great. Within easy walking distance of a tube station, as well as Emirates Stadium (which turned out to be really great after going to see Green Day there). The only bad thing about the hostel was the showers. The one in the ensuite bathroom never had hardly any hot water, even when no one had been using it, and when it did have hot water it was scalding. The showers in the ladies' bathroom were much better, but you had to keep pushing the button for water every 30 seconds.
It's a very cozy hostel. Extremely easy to meet other people and go out to a pub together, which is really great when you're traveling alone. Steve was really friendly and helpful. It was nice to have breakfast included, as it was one less thing to think about.
I absolutely loved this hostel! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. It was really easy to meet people here. Everything was clean. This was my favorite hostel of the trip.
My room was really nice but the hotel was really far out of the way. The staff was generally friendly except for the old man who I guess was the night porter. He seemed really crabby every time he was working. If you need a cab, the receptionist calls it up for you, which is really great. The WiFi here was horrible and only available in the dining room. The breakfast was good, but they desperately need to extend the hours. My room was freezing cold, even though it was turned all the way up.
