Only one bathroom for a lot of people. It was clean, but always flooded and it was really hard to take a shower with so many people relying on it. The recepctionist does not talk in english, but it was helpful. The internet did not worked at night. Other than that it was great!

No WiFi, unfriendly staff, difficult to find. Other than that it's pretty good. Good value for money, but the lack of a free WiFi is enough for a huge thumbs down.
Worst Hostel ever. Terrible, dead slow and extremely rude staff that can barely speak any english. Worst sanitary conditions I´ve ever seen on a hostel. Smelly dirty rooms and beds. The only good things are the location (right next to Hyde Park and Bayswater station), the bed curtains and a big common room downstairs. Worst shower in Europe. Pro tip: If you're brave enough to book here, there's a Shop Mall called Whiteleys nearby with a great WC when the duty calls.
Worst hostel ever. Rude and slow staff that don't speak English, lockers are paid. Rooms extremely dirt and smelly, low speed WiFi, no wifi on the rooms, worst showers in Europe. The only thing nice about the hostel are the bed curtains and it's right next to Hyde park and bayswater station. Everything else is horrible. I've stayed on more than 20 cheap hostels, but this one takes the prize of being the worst.
WiFi does not work on bedrooms and they close all common areas during the night. If you want to stay awake you have to sit on the street, even if it is raining. They also locked me out of my room saying that I should have checked out, but fact is that I had the reservation for one more day. THEY screwed things up and I had to pay more to get another room. got humiliated in the process, as they packed my stuff but wouldn't let me get my shoes that were still in the room. Didn't got any refund.
It is a good hostel but a bit expensive (like everything in Sweden). The staff is friendly and helpful, specially Luis, but the Asian looking dude is very rude. Free pasta is great and so is the WiFi and showers, but the bed linen politics is beyond stupid, it is almost a trap. Never seen this kind of BS even on much cheaper hostels. Beds are noisy and the mattress is very thin. Everything else is OK. Great location but don't expect any atmosphere at the hostel.
Its a good hostel with an unbeatable price. Staff is helpful and the location is good, can reach everything by foot. No much atmosphere, but i guess it is a clients fault. Everyone just fiddling their smart phones or tablets.
Great hostel, but try too hard to pass the party idea to the point it looks really corny instead of cool. Great bar though.
Near the metro. Clean. No WC outside the rooms. Fair price and ok wifi. That said, the indian night recepcionist is by far the worst I've ever seen. Very rude, sleeps at the job, doesn`t help anyone (even a japanese girl who had the luggage lost by the airport). You have no idea of how terrible it was. The site says it has 24h reception but after the midnight they close the doors, turn off the lobby lights without warning, even with it crowded, and treat everyone like garbage.
It',s a good hostel and I recommend it. It's far away from the center but it's close to the metro, so it isn't a big real. The staff is kind and efficient, but as nome of them speak much english dialogue can be a bit difficult. Everything else is great. The room, the bed, the kitchen, etc.
Excellent location And good enough facilities, with big rooms and good showers. The staff is efficient but no very friendly. I liked, but it is not the place to have fun or meet people. It is silent like a library.
It´s an average to good hostel but it´s CRIMINAL how they sell it as being related to Amsterdam. You're going to pay at least 12 euros (8 for the train + 4 for the bus) and spend 2 hours every time you want to go from Amsterdam Centraal to the Hostel using public transport. The hostel shuttle service (4 euros) is unreliable as they do it only a couple of times each day. However, if you want to stay in Noordwijk it´s great because it's VERY close to the beach, the staff and atmosphere are great.
Excelent as all st Christopher inns, though not as good as the Paris one. The only downside is that theres no WC outside the rooms, not even at the bar. The staff is great but tricked me into paying 3 euros to go to their club next door promissing free entrance or 2 for 1 beers, but there was no such a thing and refused to give the money back. Probably a miss communication at their part instead of a scam, but left a terrible impression on an otherwise excelent stay.
It's the kind of place that Van Damme would pick up a fight.
This is the perfect hostel. I can honestly say that it´s better than most hotels. Unfortunatelly I was on a 12 mixed room and some german douchebags decided to wake up very early, turn on the lights and make a lot of noise without any respect to the other people sleeping there. Not the hostels fault, of course, but keep in mind that even the best hostel ever can be less than perfect with so many people in one room.
