    This was the best hostel I have ever stayed at, located 5 minutes from the waterfront and near many restaurants and shops. The bed was cozy and spacious, and I felt very safe during my stay with two different locks to get to my room. And the owners are very personable and professional, truly caring that you have an enjoyable experience at the hostel. It also had the best bathrooms I’ve ever seen in a hostel, very clean and really nice! I 100% recommend this hostel!

    This was a lovely hostel, with a great pub to chill and get organised, and the vibe was good. The free breakfast was nothing special, but since it was included it did the deed. Thanks Katrina for the lovely service and friendliness. Definitely recommend!

    I enjoyed my time in the hostel but it’s not social at all and has no atmosphere. I was offer in London to catch up with friends so it was fine with me. It’s clean and the staff is lovely! Also cheap beers available. Wouldn’t recommend anyone to stay there from Saturday to Sunday as it’s impossible to sleep before 1:30 as the bar music is unbelievable loud in the room.

    The Hostel is around 35 minutes away from London's main sightseeings, however it is quite close to a metro (tube) station. Neighborhood is pretty quiet during the Day but at night you may encounter some not-so-nice drunken people. Bedrooms get some noise from the bar, not too much. Breakfast works for only getting full. Although beds are comfortable and seem clean, nothing else does (eg. The dishes) Overall, for the lower price, I would say it is a good option. Shower's are ok, WC are not.
