    Exactly as stated on the tin, a budget hostel in a decent enough location. As long as you don't go in expecting the Ritz you will find this hostel great value for money, staff are friendly and helpful and the facilities where cleaned to a good standard.

    I always stay here when I visit London. Handy for the tube and connections to where I go. Fine two star accommodation with lots of supermarkets, restaurants etc nearby. They've retiled some bathrooms since last time but there's more to be done. I needed a lower bunk and staff were extremely accommodating. Shared bathrooms are a short distance from each dorm. Can't really fault it for £15 a night. Not sexy, but perfectly adequate when you're passing through or on a budget.

    Served it's purpose, no storage lockers for possessions though, and no bathroom or toilet joined to room. Shower was downstairs and toilet upstairs had no toilet roll for my stay. bunk beds which were comfortable and the room was nice and dark to enable a good night's sleep. The door was a bit dodgy which meant it had to constantly be slammed to be closed which can wake people up. All in all it was a nice hostel, worth the money and despite the bathroom inconvenience was still a good night

    I stayed in the female dorm, it was nice the beds were comfortable except that they make noise whenever you trun or climb into it. I appreciate that the bathroom was insithe room so you don't have to go into the hallway to use the bathroom facilities. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The only bad think I can say about this place is that the stairs are no joke be prepared to climb lots of stairs depending on which floor you got. One think I may suggest is assistance with luggage by male staff.

    Quite nice to see on the website, my friends stayed at the 4th level and hell that was a lot of steps and no lift at all. Staff were friendly, towel is a rip off for £5, if you go to IKEA, that amount of money comes with a good towel in sets. Room is smelly, the wash basin is clogged and I can’t brush nor wash my face in there (room 3010). My sheets has pubic hairs which freaked me out, shower head is broken. Good side, 5 minute walk to Earl’s court train, loads of restos and pubs.

    IMPORTANT: this is not a hostel, it is q cheap bed in London for a really cheep price. I paid 12 pound for one bed in the 6 dorm. If you are looking for a cheap bed it is a good deal, not the most comfortable but nice ! The girl who was in the reception was super nice with me but unfortunately then I met the guys and they didn’t say hi or smile. Something basic in hospitality works! Owners have a look in your employees!!

    ABSOLUTELY FILTHY I have never stayed in a room this filthy anywhere in the world. I have stayed in £2/3 per night private rooms all over south East Asia and this room was filthier and more revolting then most. The walls were covered in stains, the corners of the rooms mounted with filth. The room simply looked although it had not been cleaned in over a year. Bed sheets were clean, but there was a beetle crawling up my leg in the night. He was obviously trying to escape the filth.

    Avoid! £5 for towel, 1 plug in room of 6 people, no atmosphere, unfriendly staff, dirty bathrooms, no proper curtains so 5am wakeup from the sun. Worst hostel I've ever stayed in. Much better value places in London so I'll go back to those next time.
