    BEST DEAL IN TOWN! Great location, free breakfast, even hotcakes, free dinner (sign up) spacious rooms, firm beds, quiet street. A fine, chill Tomcat for cuddles. Large garden, plenty of socializing space, film, games and much more. Very clean everywhere. Great staff. Only hair in my soup: too few showers (broken). Will be back!

    For a one-night stay as a family absolutely sufficient, good location with shops and restaurants around the corner and close to the tube. Basic rooms, fairly clean and a breakfast with pancakes that the children absolutely loved.

    The location was perfect, very close to the underground. Our room was also nice, except for the bathroom. The shower was clogged, and the holder for the shower head was broken. But the staff was kind.

    The bathrooms were dirty. The sheets were not properly washed and I had to ask them to change them due to hair on them when I arrived. The front desk staff wasn't welcoming. One positive is the breakfast and being able to use the kitchen. Another positive is the location but this has nothing to do with how the hostel is inside.
