    Aside from that strange breed that set their alarms, sleep through it for 5 minutes and then stay in bed anyway (seriously, WTF is that all about?), my stay was a delight. Location is amazing. Staff great. Good value for money. Comfy bed. Back later in the month. Be advised there's lots of noise from the street: emergency vehicle sirens and doof! doof! thud of music. But you're in the thick of Shoreditch, and that's the appeal, right?

    Staff at Hostel was excelling, happy and willing to help. Only problem I faced was that the room had no window and hence no sunlight but I think hostels are supposed to be like this and at this price point we can't expect much. It is definitely value for money for short stays and for someone who just wants to crash there at the end of the day.

    Where to start… - for the security bring or buy your lock key - very annoying only 4 sockets next to one bed in 8 beds room - don’t provide towels ( rent for 3£) - my female room just was just above the club( earplugs mandatory, can get it on reception. - it’s a old building and that place can’t be clean unless you renovate, repaint and remove mold from walls - common are barley exists ( next to reception 4 desks) -kitchen: closed during night time, not open before 10am :/

    10 bed dorm is pretty bleak, felt a bit like a military dorm, pretty hot and stuffy. I c couldn't relax in it and you can't do anything without disturbing people, other rooms might be nice but 10 bed is basically an asylum camp

    You get what you pay for so I won't complain too much. However a lack of toilet paper in the bathroom made things difficult and the hostel really should invest in need pillows as they were extremely worn out and provided no head support.

    No windows in room, tiny with no ventilation. Dark and sticky like a hellhole when lights are off. Beds are so close one sleeps almost nose to nose. Horrendous hostel, avoid. Everything is in dark wood which ads to the feel of this hostel.

    Worst hostel experience of my life. I ended up leaving 3 days early. The member of staff who checked me in did not give me any tour so I had to find everything by myself. The room was dark, crammed, very poorly ventilated and smelled foul. There was almost no storage space.The toilets were always dirty, there's no traveler atmosphere as its mostly long term tenants and here's the kicker- its on top of a nightclub. You can't sleep. The music bangs on till 2 or 3am, and its VERY loud. DO NOT BOOK.
