    Lovely hostel, awesome staff, pretty much as advertised. Two minor issues: 1. The luggage storage is protected by the staff, but nobody verified that the luggage I took was mine. For security, I'd at least do some kind of coat-check-style system where they give you a number token and put that number on the luggage. 2. The building is incredibly close to very busy train tracks, and the trains run either all night or much of the night. I slept through it alright, but light sleepers beware...

    Best location!! If you’re short on time this hostel has the perfect location, close to the underground and rail station. The beds are decent but the bathrooms are horrific. The breakfast is great though, they even had almond milk for those who doesn’t do lactose. Great selection of bread, cookies, fruit and juices. The dorms has locks but mine never worked so anyone could come in. I would not stay here for a long time, as I said, the bathrooms just take away the magic of being in london.

    Very Good

    04 May 2018
    23-year-old solo traveler stayed in the 4 bed all-female dorm for one night. Overall a good stay but definitely not one of the best hostels I’ve stayed in. Facilities really need to be updated! The toilet on my floor was not working. Rooms were nice but lockers were pretty small (didn’t fit my whole backpack) and each bed did not have a outlet. It was very loud at night (granted it was a Friday night). Staff were excellent and breakfast was pretty good. I wouldn’t stay more than a night or two.

    Hostel was good but one of the guests in my room got sick during the night and made a mess. Not the hostels fault. However, the the fact that it is above a bar may have contributed to the result.
