Great stay. You get what you pay for, there's no kitchen and I was thankful as I wouldn't have used it. There is a true hostel vibe, the lobby is a pub in itself so interacting with other people is very easy. The staff is great. Do have in mind that towels are sold for 5 pounds.
Great stay. There was an incident when a French woman went quite a bit bonkers, the staff handled it to perfection, being as nice as possible to everyone. It's really close to a tub station and Barclays bike station. I have finally found a good hostel in London, I'll be coming back everytime I'm in London.
It's a huge hostel, 500 beds, so there's a bit of a compromise, but it's still a great place to stay in London, a bit hectic at times but nevertheless a great place to stay full with amenities and the staff is great, Demi being the greatest. Definitely join the people at the bar as the staff always tries to involve the guests. There's a Barclays Bicycle station right next to the hostel, a great way to move around the city. You won't love the hostel, but you'll enjoy your stay.
It is Amsterdam so every hostel is going to be quite expensive. But it's so worth it. The hostel has smoking area in the lobby, something precious in the city, it is obviously crowded most of the time, but you might as well stand there smoking. The rooms are great, towels and shampoo are included. They also have a bar. I don't know what else to say, stay at this hostel, it's worth it.
The staff is great. The only problem was that the location, as it was winter the beach wasn't an option and the guys at Flying Pig had no driver for the minibus that would take you to city centre, this made the trip back and forth last for around 1:30 hours and cost 16 euros (return), as you would have to take a train and a bus. Call or email and check if they have the shuttle running, if they do it's a great place to stay at.
Greta hostel, loved the bar/restaurant
This is home away from home. With what's in the hostel and what's near the hostel (recommended by the great staff), you seriously do not need to worry about anything. Great place, great help and advice given by the friendly staff, great party scene as you go pub crawling with the hostel's staff (for free).

Good hostel, it seemed to be more of a cheap hotel than a real hostel, so you won;t be able to have real experience of exchanging stories and meeting people. Location wise, the hostel is situated in the west of the central park so you have to get on the U-Bahn or S-Bahn (metro) to get to the interesting part. There's a S and U Bahn station right beside, a supermarket, a Burger King, other food shops and in walking distance there are a couple of bars and clubs. Internet is dirt cheap.
All good but there wasn't any wifi in the room, as advertised.
