    Very Good

    The hostel itself was ok, though you need to hand over a 'deposit' for the key which needs to be in the form of 10$ or an ID card or something similar. You also need to pay for the room in cash only, which, for central London, is a rarity and a little annoying to have to find an ATM to pay. The rest was all good! You pay for what you get with this hostel; cheap, reliable, a little rough around the edges but certainly not a bad hostel.

    I didn’t have any problems with this very basic hostel until I had to shower: Top floor showers dont have a private change area seperate from the whole bathroom, which meant I was naked for anyone to see had they walked in (and the bathrooms aren’t gendered!) I recommend bringing a sleeping bag as I noticed the doona covers werent changed after check out. Wifi only works downstairs and DONT bring a bag bigger than you can carry. Stairs+suitcase don’t work well. There are a LOT of stairs!!

    The place looks quite bad and facilities are as well, doors are hard to lock and I wouldn’t use the kitchen in a million years. When I arrived all beds who were supposedly clean and empty had a bunch of covers and pillows just thrown on. The toilet clogged twice in 2 days and my so called en-suite room meant we had a sink and a box for a shower in the middle of the room. I can’t say it’s too bad cause of the price which is so cheap. But I ‘ve been in a lot of hostels and this was the worst.

    I’ve stayed in many hostels, but this one was the worst. There is mold everywhere, the rooms smell, no ladders for the top bunks, the whole place was dirty. Worst part was the people though. My friend and I were in a mixed room and were the only girls, the rest were middle aged men. Most of them were living there and they left their s**t (including used tissues) everywhere. One guy was really creepy towards my friend and I, which made us afraid to sleep there. Do not stay here, not worth it.
