    This is a great hostel. Cleaning staff work really hard in rolling shifts keeping everything clean. Management constantly seeking feedback on how to improve their service and are looking out for everyone's well-being. Simple but nice breakfast included in the tariff. highly recommended.

    Nice, very central hostel with free (small) breakfast of bread and jelly, instant coffee and cereals. Additional kitchen with a chill livingroom. The bar is Pretty loud at night, but good atmosphere to meet People and in 3rd Floor you don't hear the guests. The hostel is seperatly locked from the bar, which is nice. Unfortunately very view bathrooms and showers, but if you can avoid mornings to usw them, it's ok. All together recommandable for a short stay in London!

    This isnt one of those beautiful, expensive hostels. This is a place for a real budget traveler. The location was just down the road from the london bridge, the beds and bathrooms were clean, and theres a pub downstairs full of local students. It was exactly what i was looking for

    I solo traveled to London for two days and this hostel was such a great spot to pick! Central location (walking distance to the underground, a short bike ride to the Parliment Square, next to other bars and restaurants) and wonderful staff. My last night I stayed up all night and found that Robert over in reception was such a great resource for all my questions as he was knowledgeable of the time stores open near by and also helped with getting my laundry done on site before my flight.

    Stayed here for a week, everyone working here was very polite and friendly. Beds were clean. And the kitchen/hanging room was roomy and had plenty of people to chat with. They even had storage boxes for your food if you wanted to use the kitchen. Fair warning about getting your laundry done you will only get it back the morning after you give it to them. Showers were a bit icky but worked well, bring flip flops!!!

    Other than the sheer amount of noise that came from the bar below when one was trying to sleep, it wasnt bad. But ear plugs didnt even help keep the noise at bay. It was decent for the price, but I wouldn't stay here again because I like to go to sleep before last call.

    Very Good

    First night was a nightmare: we were one the first floor, room 1 and there is a pub in the ground floor with loud music until 2pm. From the second day on we changed to room 3 and our stay was lovely. So I suggest that you charge cheaper for rooms in the 1st floor warning about the noise. For sure I wouldn’t stay there not even for 1 pound. Friendly staff, s. Clean toilets and room. The only thing that prevents me from giving a better score was the noise.

    Hostel was okay wouldn't say anymore than that. The mattress was awful and facilities were not up to standard. Only 2 bathrooms which only one of them had a sink and mirror.

    The hallways and bathrooms smelled funny. You had to pay extra to rent lockers, and they weren’t even big enough to store your bag. The free breakfast was a perk and the atmosphere was great for solo travelers. The bar is really loud at night especially if your room is on the first floor.
