Comfy beds, great facilities in rooms, friendly staff and breakfast was decent. Being above a little pub made it difficult to meet other travellers as they didn't hang out there. Also families staying who don't socialise with backpackers.

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels during your visit to London, unfortunately we have no control over how sociable our guests are, there are plenty of opportunities to meet the other guests in our pub downstairs and i sure you would meet the same in any other hostel, thank you for your comments.

Easy to access hostel from tube station, easy to access London city from hostel via tube. Not really a backpacker hostel as I was expecting, especially due to age restricitions. Many families and groups of children / teenagers running through halls and blocking up walk ways and bar downstairs. Limited access to wifi. Rooms are good although I personally dislike foam mattresses. Clean but quite stale and more like a hotel.

Great hostel with almost everything you could need. Friendly staff who appeared to enjoy their job and were helpful and efficient. The laundry was still under construction during my stay and the computer system is expensive, confusing, time consuming and the computers slow. Other than that I had a fantastic stay and meet great people at Belushi's downstairs.

Not what you expect. The first night the bathroom was very unclean, with dirty bathwater in the bottom of the shower, was vleaned the next day. Limited bathroom facilities. The beds are average. Good kitchen n lounge area. Luckily other travellers there were friendly. Does share a wall with a brothel but generally no issue with this. Staff were helpful with suggestions n maps etc.

Good place stay, staff could be friendlier at reception and especially in the bar at breakfast and during the evenings, always felt I was disturbing them...

This place can be hard to find but is worth it when you get there. I stayed in the single room which was expensive for what it was but the double rooms and dorms were bigger and well lit from big open windows. The laid back atmosphere and staff made it worth while. Limited hot water but other facilities are great. Had a great bunch of travellers staying there at the time which also made the experience even better.

Unfortunately I was in a room with a very inconsiderate, rude and dirty group of 7 friends in an 8 bed dorm. There was a mix up with lockers in the room and I was given a locker with someone elses things in it and one person from the group of friends was able to open all lockers in the room with his swipe card! Great location, common area not great to faciliate meeting other ppl. Average stay overall but location is good, staff were helpful and might be better under different circumstances.

Great facilities, lacking a bit of atmosphere but the cafe\bar adjoining is great.

Great location with easy access to city centre and transport. Rooms and bathrooms always clean and great staff on reception 24 hours availability. Most people travelling in groups and not many solo travellers and difficult to meet people without events organised there.
