Pros: Staff was really helpful and friendly. Breakfast was tasty and rich. The whole hostel is nicely renovated. The room (two bed room with shared bathroom) was really cozy with big windows. Pasta night & BBQ organized by the hostel. Free guided city tours by a volunteer guide. Cons: The elevator was not working, it was quite uncomfortable to drag the luggage to the 5th floor. The tap water was not very good for drinking. Red light district are could be uncomfortable for lone women.
Very friendly atmosphere. After couple of minutes I was feeling like being at home. Small but cozy common room, free internet, very helpful hostelkeeper. If you need to sleep close to the Keleti railway station, for sure choose this one.
Location is perfect - very close to Hyde Park and to the two tube stations. People on the reception were very friendly and nice. Cleanliness is good, rooms pretty small. During summer months the upper floors (4th, 5th, 6th) can be really hot. Even a fan provided to the room is unable to do something with it. No elevator, steep staircases - definitively not suitable for disabled. Padlock and other devices for deposit or personal ID. Very nice place to sleep. I will come back again.
Very clean and tidy. Too many people, atmosphere is more like in a hotel. Dorms are at the basement. Electric adapters only sold for £5 (not for deposit), lock for the locker is for 1£ per day (not for deposit). So don't forget your commonwealth adapter and your own padlock. But still a nice place to sleep.
To charge £5 if the hostel guests would like go to the pub that is downstairs is silly. Guys on reception were really helpful and friendly. Overall cleanness is quite poor. What I would do first for £5 charge is buying a bucket of color and paint the walls.The lockers are really small. The noise from the pub (especially on weekends) is massive - you have to get over it. However place still acceptable for sleep.
