    Really comfortable place to stay, nice friendly people too, has good kitchen/washingmachine/WiFi etc. I spoke to people who came back regularly in between other parts of their lives but that here was the place they felt at home.

    Really excellent! Immaculately clean, good quality breakfast, homely and comfortable rooms, and they upgraded my dorm room to a private room for free, presumably just because the hostel was quiet and the room was available. This will definitely be my go-to hostel for visiting London from now on.

    This is the type of hostel to go if you are visiting London and want a quite trip. I believe it is run by a family with a cute dog, so people who work at the hostel maybe live there. Most of the people staying in this hostel were adults in need of a temporary accommodation, so this isn’t the party-hostel type! For me this hostel was perfect!! People in the hostel were friendly, and the hostel was clean. There is a power socket on each bed. The only bad side, pillows are very hard!

    Loved the experience! Would highly recommend it for mature (25+) travellers. Fine for younger stayers too, might just have a little less energy. Ken was fantastic and loved the friendly dogs. Good breakfast, washing facilities for £1.50 wash and Dry (each). Safes and lockers were great. Good chargers and lamps in each bed area. Nothing to complain about at all.

    Great, clean, nice atmosphere. Pretty close to a underground station (5-10 min walk). Grocery nearby. Staff was so nice. Very chill and not much common area so everyone kept to themselves. Older crowd mostly but some young people. Breakfast was very basic. Fruit, cereal, milk, tea, coffee, toast.
