    Easy to find, amazing staff, great breakfast, clean and tidy, only minor downside was the same as most hostels with the push button showers every 10 seconds, but as stated that’s minor. Good friendly mix of people staying there too.

    Not in city center, but just 30 second walk to the northern underground line which can take you to many tourist destinations. free breakfast is a perk. the place is a bit crowded in the dorms and bathroom, I think it would be better to get rid of these triple decker bunk beds and just do regular double bunk beds. the room was always messy because people don't really have anywhere to put their stuff. and there's not enough showers and space in bathrooms for all the guests. staff was nice

    wifi was spotty, bathrooms were small and far from the room (plus the shower only runs for 5 sec at a time), breakfast being included was nice/simple, would be nice to have events or something to bring guests together, the 3 story bunk beds were not it though, my charger fell off and broke bc it was so tall :’)

    Very Good

    27 Jul 2022
    Overall I thought it was good for the cost. There were a few things that should be better though. Myself and my friend both stayed 1 night in a female dormitory and then 1 night in a private room. The dormitory could do with better air-con as with so many people sleeping in there it got hot to the point we struggled to sleep. Alongside this in both rooms the pillows were almost non-existent. We also found in the private room the wallpaper was coming away from the wall and it smelt damp.

    Cheap and convenient hostel, with friendly staff and situated near a tube station, but the location isn't great, near a noisy crossroad and the neighborhood isn't attractive. I feel this place didn't change much in the past 20 years, maybe a quick updo would be nice. I read outstanding reviews when the place is just okay, but if you don't want to spend too much I guess that could be a good fit for you.

    The staff are very friendly and helpful, but the facilities aren't great. Rooms are too crowded, with 3-level bunk beds. You barely get any space for your belongings. USB ports are not working and normal plugs have a 'protective' edge that won't allow plugging large adapters (to prevent fire, supposedly). The lounge area in the basement is too small and smells damp. It's a cheap option, but far from London's main amenities (consider underground fares).

    You pay for what you get I guess. Cheap Hostel, not the nicest hostel but good value for money. Don’t expect anything big from the free breakfast.

    There were many guests over the age of 35, but they advertised the location as a youth hostel with a maximum age of 35. The main manager made jokes about watching me as I was sleeping and having cameras in the bathroom. He was offended that my female friend expressed discomfort about some of the male guests and said she looked like her family was in the kkk. Every other member of staff was very friendly and amazing. I was followed around by a few of the male guests.
