I've stayed here a few times as you get good value for money. The beds are comfy and have curtains for privacy. The bathrooms are cleaned regularly but the showers are a tad frustrating as they're on a timer which doesn't last long and you have to keep pressing the button to keep the water going. There aren't a lot of power sockets in the bedrooms but plenty in the dining/lounge area, and Internet connection is pretty good but can cut out sometimes. Pretty good compared to other london hostels.
The staff were really helpful, and the hostel is in a great location in terms of proximity to London attraction, but it's next to the main railway lines going to/from Waterloo station so it's pretty noisy. I was a bit disappointed with the kitchen as a lot of plates, cups, bowls and other cooking equipment weren't properly clean, but that's not necessarily the hostel's fault but more so the people who have stayed there. Some of the showers could to with a bit of maintenance work too.
The wifi was a bit hit and miss, it was only in the common room area and getting good connection proved difficult. All other aspects of the hostel are great.
I was in a 15 bed dorm however there was not enough space for luggage, they did have storage shelves however not enough for everyone, so there were bags and clothing all over the floor, and it felt very cramped. I liked how each bunk had curtains for privacy.
Well the whole building was under construction, loose electrical cords everywhere. One look at the kitchen and we decided to eat out.
Unfortunately the toilet was blocked but we were only there for one night so it wasn't a big deal. We were also the only ones staying there which was a bonus, nice to have the place to ourselves for a bit.
