    Wonderful place to stay--would definitely recommend. Solid security (key card locks), security lockers for luggage (bring a padlock!), clean beds, clean bathrooms, helpful staff. Not the most social hostel, but a great place to crash for a few days.

    I just needed an inexpensive place to sleep overnight between very late night train arriving and very early morning train departing from Waterloo, and this was perfect. Friendly 24-hour reception. Full dorm with clean, comfy bed. Decent shower. They found a secure place to store my bike overnight.

    Location was fantastic! Staff were exceptionally wonderful, shout out to Amy, Laurie and Luana! Atmosphere of the place was very fun and enjoyable, and the pub downstairs was the perfect place to relax and hang out. Will definitely be back next time we are in London!

    I have nothing to complain about this place except for a huge disappointment when I wanted to take a shower in the morning and there's no hot water during the winter :/

    Good --- Security as Door opens with card, Beds neat and clean, washroom clean (but messy in the morning as everyone using it), got free water from Pub, free print out, staff is good, 24 hours open, no restriction. No Towels, No breakfast, Pub is quite expensive, No AC inside room, very small ventilation in the room. It felt suffocating.

    Very Good

    I’m not sure why this place is rated so highly. I will say, as a pub, it’s fantastic, but as a hostel it’s very mediocre. It is clean and appears newly remodeled, But there’s only one shared bathroom with not enough toilets and showers and it’s unisex. There were only two lockers in my 6-person dorm and minimal floor space. I can’t imagine if it were full. Plus, it’s triple decker beds. If you’re out for a night of partying, cool, but as a backpacker it’s not ideal

    Appropriately low cost hostel. We couldn't figure out how The Steam Engine was so highly rated. This is a pub, which is very good, with rooms above. There are no fridges, cooking areas, or common areas. The food served by the hostel is great, but not at all cheap. It doesnt align with a backpacker budget. The beds are small, the rooms are cramped, and the showers are not always hot. You must buy a towel, no rentals. Also, there was a light in our room that didnt turn off. Staff were helpful.

    I’m not sure how this hostel was highly rated. There is only one restroom for an entire floor to share with no closing toilet room doors. Also, kind of ironic that although it’s a pub, you can’t drink anywhere, not even the beer garden.
