Ideal place for parting and meeting people. The bar it self and food is great and hostel visitors have nice discount. Location is also nice, you got tube station in front of the hostel. There are few problems. Toilets and some of showers are old and damaged. I recommend looking around your floor to find newer showers. Another problem is noise, from iron cages where you put staff. No matter how much you tried you will make tons of noise and I was woken up because it. Ear plugs recommended.
Hey ;). Hostel is close by to everything, it has pretty fun and great stuff, few free tours during the week(hey Frank ;)) and generally nice atmosphere - they got lovely cat , old school living room like chill out area and lovely backyard(must be awesome in summer). Only thing which bothered me were the showers. They had shower timer, so you couldn't regulate amount and temperature of water. Also breakfast is ok, but bit too sugary, bit of fruit or cheese instead of jam would be great
This place is more like hotel with more beds rather than hostel. This might be good for family trips or if you hate backpacking and want cheaper stay. Toilet and shower looks great, room was nice too. Problems: - is that atmosphere was just hotel bad, nothing special, easily forgettable place. - it is far form center so you might end up paying extra for travelling - breakfast was only in form all you can eat which is at least for me expensive overkill(breakfast not included in price)
Great location for our trip, I just didn't like the double bed room, felt bit depressing being in small room, in basement. There were two pictures on the wall, but that didn't help much. Also wifi wasn't working properly in our room,.
Best thing there was stuff, I was satisfied with security but it wasn't anything extra. You needed padlocks for everything I would expect it to be maybe more electronic. Hostel was overall clean I met cleaner several times, unfortunately toilets are bit old so even when they are clean they aren't looking welcoming.
I tried this Hostel except of Palmers Lodge where I was last time. I have to say that price is great and I still cannot believe that for that great price you get such a quality hostel. I didn't give 100 percent for character because rooms looks uglier than for example in palmers lodge(love the wooden floors), Location was actually pretty great for me, because I was going everyday to Watford. Around area you got a lot of places where to eat, and tube is not even 10 minutes walk. I may be wrong with

I have been: 1. In hostel 2. In England 3. Alone outside my country for first time and I like it a lot :). Hostel is pretty clean, breakfast pretty good, they got nintendo wi and (only) 6 computers with free internet + wi fi for free so great. I didn't have any problems with roomates, stuff or other people around hostel. I would recomend it,
