    This is a wonderful hostel to stay in. The bar is fun and full of people, everyone is nice and looking for a good time, and the rooms have everything you need. The front desk helped me when I was in a bind and I am very thankful for their assistance!!! Pure 10/10

    excellent hostel! It’s a good choice for London. Lots of space to hang out. They have computers, printing, and laundry. The showers are also really big with lots of places to hang your clothes. They also have hairdryers and a nice seated vanity. The people working were very helpful. The breakfast is a little pricey, but they have some nice options! the wifi is better than a lot of hostels I’ve stayed at. It’s very close to the Finchley Road Station.

    Property set in a great location in Central London with a pub right next door open until 2am each night. Facilities were decently clean. Beds were comfortable. Had to pay for a locker for bags/valuables and a towel. Also had to pay a deposit for keys. Overall would recommend!

    The hostel was really good located and really clean. The bar is super cheap as well. There is not too much activity with the hostel, but the center location is a big plus of this hostel

    Super friendly and helpful staff! We were received in a very warm and welcoming manner. My friend and I were both surprised what an amazing clean hostel it is. Overall a very nice experience, only downside for us was that we expected the breakfast to be included (as we read this in other reviews) but there was no breakfast at all. Still not a problem, this way we got to enjoy a nice English breakfast

    Hostel is located nicely with a 2 minute walk to borough station and just a few steps away from the london bridge. However, the heat in the room on the 3rd floor is abysmal, super humid at night and funky smell of the beds. No ventilation and the windows couldn't be opened completely and even if the window was ajar, there is a lot of traffic noise. A sleeping mask and earplugs is therefore a must otherwise you won't have a good night rest. Shower was broken and no wifi on the 3rd floor.

    The location is good and the hostel is cleaned regularly. Unfortunately I cannot recommend this hostel, however. The facilities are very lacking - the wifi is terrible, the rooms are hot and stuffy, some power outlets do not work, and there are no lockers in the rooms (there are some lockers in the hallway but you have to pay for them and they’re tiny). Additionally, there is no atmosphere whatsoever.
