It felt like the place was constantly being cleaned, so good! Everything was really fresh. Great showers. Takes no time at all to get into central London. Would stay here again for sure.

    My stay was absolutely wonderful, the staff are friendly, very clean. Tried the breakfast, so many choices of things for a barging £3.50, will definitely stay again. Lockers are inside the room and I was able to do my laundry.

    Booked it as needed one night stay, reviews- some of the negative ones are not doing the place justice. Security is great, just will be nice to know in advance that you need a lock for the lockers. As was running the marathon, location for start line is the best. Town offer you few places to shop if you need anything. Rooms are clean and the fact that there is a bar on the ground floor did not effect my stay. Definitely will come again if needed.

    The hostel has very friendly staff and great coffee. You get what you pay for. The rooms are clean. The toilets are clean. Nothing to complain about. Only thing is that it's a little far away but hey that's why it's cheap. Has got a Tesco nearby. Only common area is the pub downstairs but that's nice as well.

    On my last night I came home and someone’s stuff was in my bed. I assumed someone took the wrong bed because there was another free, so I took the free one. I told the receptionist when I checked out at 4am for my flight and he was extremely rude to me about it. He told me people come in early in the morning and stay to see which beds are free and then don’t pay and that I had now created more work for him. This is am obvious security and hospitality issue. I would not stay again.

    Myself and several friends were supposed to stay here. We are three young females and staying somewhere where we feel safe is important to us. We were given a room with several older males which was a bit off-putting, but not a huge deal. However, the smell of armpit coming from this room was so rank. We walked into the room and were trying to choke back tears, lol. It was also very far outside the city. We were uncomfortable +knew we couldn’t sleep there so booked a BnB. So worth the extra $$.

The night before the police came to the dorm and were going to arrest a guy on the basis of complete lies staff had told them about him, the guy done absoloutely nothing and had complained because he had been treated u fairly by staff. The Police and Hostelworld are currently investigating, DON'T STAY HERE
