Had a lot of problems with this hostel. For one the kitchen was disgusting, there were no signs to clean up after yourself so no one seemed to. You only got the wifi if you sat in the stairwell, could not get it in your room at all. The location was not bad, an easy walk to a tube station. Anyone could walk in, though the doors did lock. The staff were slow and not helpful unless you are a hot, single girl. The rooms were nice, but needed some elbow grease. The whole hostel needed some TLC.
The only complaints we had about this hostel was that no one was using the common room, it was not very inviting. It would have been nice to have been able to socialize in it. The kitchen and common room were both large and clean. The room was nice, and the location was also very good. We did a lot of walking, but it was still nice. The nearby food and bars were very good and very cheap!
The only problems we had with this hostel was that the wifi did not reach our room, you had to be in the common room, and the staff was terrible. They gave me the wrong backpack and they also were not very helpful when we were looking for bars, or had other questions. On the plus side, the location was amazing, within walking distance to a lot of touristy and non-touristy things. The kitchen was large and kept very clean, and the common room was large and comfortable.
I really liked the location because it was close to the bus and train station, as well as the local shopping. The only problems I had with this hostel was that the music downstairs was very loud in the room until the early hours, but that is kind of expected when you stay over a bar. The other problem I had was the separate door to the hostel did not work and wasn't easy to get to. Over all though, it was a very nice hostel.
