The best part about this hostel was that it was right in the middle of the Red Light District. Other than that, it was way overpriced. The ceiling was all of two feet above my top bunk, the storage drawers were awkward and difficult to use, and the bathroom was tiny considering the dozens of people it hosted. If you really just need a bed, this can be okay, but don't expect much else.
It is immediately next to the Grand Place, which is the center of the city. There's a nice common area and kitchen to meet other travelers and hang out. The bathroom was incredibly clean and looked like a hotel bathroom. The only downside is that you have to go to another office that's just a 10 minute walk away in order to check in, but it's a very small inconvenience for an otherwise great hostel.
It's about a 15 minute Metro ride from the main touristy area, but the area around the hostel is nice as well. The room was perfectly serviceable and comfortable. They accidentally under-charged us when we first arrived, so we were surprised when we had to pay an additional 10 Euro when we were leaving. The breakfast in the morning was good. Overall a very good hostel.
The location was really bad. It was a 10 minute walk to the nearest tube stop and at least a 10 minute ride to get anywhere in London. So if you 're looking for a place from which to go out and explore London in a short period of time, this is not a good place.
Prime location right on the Royal Mile. The 8-bed room was a bit small but perfectly serviceable. Overall, it's a really good place to stay.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Our 6-bed room was small but perfectly serviceable. Very good location - only a few minutes walk from Temple Bar.
There were a lot of slightly annoying things about this hostel that really added up. The room was significantly colder than the rest of the hostel, the shower only had one temperature (very hot), the Wi-Fi was spotty and had a very annoying log-in process, and one of the women at the front desk was rather grumpy and unhelpful. (The other woman was very pleasant, friendly and helpful.) However, the room was comfortable and clean, which is sufficient to get by for travelers on a budget.
