The only great thing about the hostel is the location. The common room is very dark and smelly due to being in the basement/kitchen. Furthermore the room was very chilly (windows not closing properly) and the mattress was old and uncomfortable. The room was in no good condition as were the shower facilities. there was also a very penetrating smell of cleaning supplies everywhere (smelling like a toilet - lemony cleaning agent).

Hi, we regret to hear that you were not fully satisfied with your stay.Due to high costs of properties in London,we have to make full use of all the space available including the basement,to keep our rates low.Had any problem of the window been brought to our attention we would had our maintenance staff address it immediately.We have full time cleaning staff servicing bathrooms and rooms on a daily basis to ensure they are in good conditions.

A very nice hostel. The double rooms were in a different building but really just round the corner. So it was nice to have a more quiet area but still be able to go over to the other house and join people on the roof terrace for a drink. The staff was really great and had many recommendations for beaches, restaurants etc. The room was quite big and nicely furnished for a hostel (more like a budget hotel room). All in all great hostel!

Really a lovely place, it is kind of a flat made into rooms they rent out, so you have a kitchen and two bathrooms. Just make sure to give them a ring before you arrive, because the "hostel manager" does not usually stay at the hostel and needs to get there.

Very nice hostel. Great staff. Only downside is that one has to walk up or around the hill to get to the main street.

The location is great and the staff are friendly and helpful. Also it is good to party. The toilets are really old and you have to walk many stairs up to the rooms. There is no common room, only the pub to hang out in. ALl in all good for the price.

Do not book a room without ensuite since there is only one bathroom per floor and you might need to wait for 45 minutes till you can go to the loo.
