    Everything was great! Just let people from all generation stay at your place! That's the way the very young ones teach about real life and do not live in an illusion that life is 'do what ever I want'! I am a philosopher, I teach and know the mind of kids. Love, hope to see you soon!🌼

    Great stay. I only have one suggestion for the hostel: don't give bedding to your guests, just make sure the beds are made already. This is easier when guests arrive late and don't have to make their bed so late.

    You pay for what you get and it was really cheap so I wasn't expecting much. The rooms are small and a bit cramped but totally fine if you just need a cheap bed in London. There are triple bunk beds and the top bunks are very high and close to the ceiling. I didn’t like this at first because it was hard to get up and down to the top bunk without bothering other people but it was comfortable to sleep in. I was only there one night but I would definitely stay again because of the price!

    Very Good

    My friend and I stayed for 6 days. Overall good. Few things worth mentioning. Showers communal between women & men. If you're a woman I would suggest looking into female only dorms first as a few nights I struggled to sleep having drunk men arrive at early hours. Drawers under bed for your suitcase, if anything bigger than a carry on you will have to pay for a locker downstairs which I had to do for £3 per day. Towel hire available for £2.50 for whole stay. Take a padlock for locker!

    The cleanliness of the place was horrible. The rooms were awfully smelly, since windows can't be opened, thus breaking the health regulations.But the truly disgusting thing was that we found A RAT in our room, which had eaten another guest's snack bar.Even though signs warn not to have any food in the room, this was A TINY CHOCOLATE BAR a guest had in his pocket, so hardly "food".When he complained, the staff said they would charge him A FINE instead of taking care of THE RAT PROBLEM. Terrible!!
