We slept there for almost a week in a six bed dorm. The room was too small : no space to put our luggage. The room was made for 4 beds, not more. There are only 3 showers on one floor and 2 of them with toilets. So I could not even pee in the morning because I had to wait for someone to leave the bathroom. I even tried once all the showers on every floor. Good thing showers are cleaned daily.I don't expect a 4star hotel when I book a hostel but a minimum of good facilities would be appreciated.

Good location, staff could answer my questions. I did not expect so many choices for breakfast. And the hostel was very clean.

It's a 20minute walk from town but you can arrange a pick-up or drop-off. Countdown and New World supermarkets are close by (approximately 10 to 15 minute walk). The hostel is modern and very clean. There's free bread, pasta (and spices!). Rachel and Richard are very nice and helpful. I can only recommend this place!

Quiet place, clean bathrooms. There should be some more cutlery though (especially forks) as there aren't enough of them when it's a bit busy in the kitchen. But it's a cool place with two dining rooms (one with a TV), a lounge (TV as well) and free Wi-Fi.

Nice kitchen, good breakfast, located close to Victoria station and a night us stops a few Meyers from the hostel.

Thanks for staying with us! Being located so close to Victoria station makes it easy for our guests to find the hostel when they come to London for the first time. As the tube stops around midnight, having a bus stop right near the hostel that runs 24 hour a day is also extremely helpful. Come stay with us again!

After booking, I received a very useful email from the staff on how to get to the hostel. Very charming place, close to the one of the touristic sites of the city. Small lockers in the room to keep valuables and clean rooms.

The youth hostel is quite close to the station ^^. The staff was friendly and the building is really nice. The shower is in the bedroom (which is quite convenient). Even though the windows let the cold inside, my blanket kept me warm.
