    Staff was amazing from the manager to the night clerk really make you feel welcome. Food was great and always nice to be able to drink late as most places close early during the week. First stay at a hostel and was worried at first but if this is how they all are I will never stay in a hotel again

The bar downstairs is open 24hrs, The food is good and you get a discount for staying there. the staff are awesome, I left my bank cards in the locker and they posted to my next stop! The room I was in was a comfortable size and Bathrooms were clean.

    It is located right above a lovely english pub which offers great food and drinks! The staff is nice and helpfull. The location is awsome, it is just a 10 minute walk from London eye and parliament. Rooms are clean and nice. Showers and toilets could be a bit cleaner but they were good enough for us. If you want a locker, you need to pay extra 4£ and they are quite small (not big enough for a laptop), otherwise it feels quite safe there. We enjoyed our stay there and would recomend it!

    A good place to stay in London. Excellent location. Excellent value for money. The pub downstairs is lively, very helpful and kind staff, great taste in music (according to me). However, it does get noisy on Friday night so not the best place to stay if you intend to get a quiet night time. Bathrooms are clean, but not that private.

    There was a blond lady working on the night shift that was amazingly nice. The rest of the staff not so much. Only two shared toilets for over 30 people.

    The location was good and everything was okay. It was clean enough. The only complaint I have is when I ordered breakfast, I found a piece of ham in my food and as I’m vegan, I was glad I had caught it. I told the employee working there and he just shrugged and said, oh yeah.

    Right above a pub, so if you're a light sleeper you can hear the music thumping. Only two bathrooms for five rooms with at least 10 people in each. Small rooms stuffed with bunk beds that go up three beds. Outlets are not conveniently placed, some are over by the window and some are by a bed. The lockers provided are too small to really hold anything bigger than a handbag and unless you have a lock for all your bags, someone is going to go through them (like it happened to us). Doors get jammed
