    I had an excellent stay! The rooms are nothing special, but clean and comfortable. The best part by far is the friendly staff! Ihighly recommend this as a hostel and bar.

    I don't know where to start, the staff was amazing, the food is delicious, specially the burgers, the beer is great. I had a great night of sleep, although the dorms can be crowded, as long as the windows are open, the room is fresh and odor free. The pub at the first floor is great for socializing and the bathrooms are clean and with hot running weather. I definitively recommend stay here

    It's a very good hostel! Really safe to return at night, there's an underground really close, the beds are clean, staff is really friendly... Only the bathrooms, could have a better cleaning! But it depends a lot of the people staying, so is understandable... Overall, no regrets! It was really good!

    the hostel is located very close to the London Eye and Westminster from there you can programm what you want to see in London. the English breakie and the Burgers are Great however the hostel does not have a common kitchen which makes very difficult to socialize with the people staying in the hostel

    This hostel is in a very good location. When I arrived , the welcome was quite nice. The bar and eating stuff in plan were ideal and good for your money’s worth. However, I must admit that the bed was a bit small and it was a bit of a hassle to get off it each time. Apart from that the staff was very attentive when I had concerns or needed advice. I highly recommend inspite of the bed space.

    Really rough experience—the bathrooms were disgusting, trash overflowing, hair everywhere, bathroom doors broken. Dealt with completely intoxicated group in my room that came home at midnight, turned on all the lights, and proceeded to turn the place into a college dorm room. Staff didn’t show any concern about enforcing any of its own policies, such as no alcohol in rooms, or “quiet hours”. I get hostels can get rowdy, but for the price of this one, I expected far more. Not recommend.
