    Very nice area, mixture of co-residents with local flair as they also have long stay residents, was perfect for my stay.

    I had a nice stay. The staff was very helpful and considerate. The room was a bit untidy due to lack of cleanliness on the part of occupants and the lady on reception changed sheets and duvet for me straightaway. Would recommend to anyone looking for a budget stay in the center of London.

    The majority of the people here are long-term renters, not hostel guests. If you leave your bags after checkout, it is very easy to steal as they are not secure. I grabbed my own bag and got out before any staff even noticed. I had to remind them that I had to pay when I was leaving! Shower did not work in my room and it sounds like it has been like that for a long time. No where to hang out except in rooms. Close to tube stop, but that's about all it has going for it.

    It is inexpensive, but an odd experience as so many people also live/rent here. I had a 3 bed dorm and one girl had lived there for 6 months. She had to get up for work at 5AM. The place was not clean and the plumbing was poorly planned. Things done very cheaply (clogged showers, teeny tiny sinks, tissue thin toilet paper). At check in, I was given a key to a drawer beside my bed. A day later, a key for the wardrobe was in the door. Who put it there? Staff focused on renters, not tourists. :(

    One of the worst hostels I’ve ever stayed in. Staff was rude but the manager was nice. The hostel room and facilities were very dirty. Location is really nice though.

    This experience was beyond disappointing. There was mold all up the wall of the room I was give, right above my pillow. It had clearly been there for a while, and the room stank. The toilets are showers were awful- ceiling caved in from damp, filthy showers that weren't cleaned once over my two night stay. The doors slam constantly. The only highlights were that the staff were polite, not amazing but they did move me to a mold free room. And I did get a decent nights sleep. Would not recommend
