    I only stayed for three nights, having gone down to London for the Cup Final weekend. The hostel was in a convenient location, not far from underground stations, and close to a main shopping area, Tottenham Court Road. The 8 bed dorm room was clean and pleasant, the attached toilet and shower were clean and well maintained, and the staff were helpful. I would definitely stay at this hostel again.

    Fantastic location in the heart of London. I was travelling with my family (6 people) and the room was stacked with bunkbeds which was fine though I would have liked a chair to sit on. The bathroom was designed to accommodate disabled guests and we found the sink to be too small. These are minor gripes, and I wouldn't hesitate in staying again during our next trip.

    I stayed here the night after having an operation. The night staff could not have been more helpful! The stay was very pleasant. High standard of cleanliness.

    Stayed in a 6 bed dorm for women, that happened to be the wheelchair adapted room. Because of this, the bathroom was quite big, there were no lockers. The bed and pillow were comfortable. We were a maximum of 3 people in the dorm at a time, so that was good. Breakfast is not included, so I preferred to go to the many nice cafés in the neighborhood that offered a bit of a fancier breakfast (but for a higher price).

    The only downside was there were no lockers to leave your luggage in a secure place.

    There was no lockers for our big bags. The kitchen was handy and the staff was helpful when approached. The toilets and showers are separated, which was nice so you were not waiting on people. The room we were in was so humid at night, you had to sleep with the windows open and no blanket. The location was great and easy access to transit.

    Expected a bit more for the cost and for this place’s rating. Hostel room was small with creaky bunks close together, very small lockers (couldn’t fit a laptop in them). Bathroom was designed awkwardly and had a big spill at night that wasn’t cleaned till the next morning even after alerting the front desk.

    Not a place to go if you're trying to meet people (which was not really my priority anyway but I know it is for some). I've stayed in hostels that had way better accommodations (personal lockers for everyone) and the girl's only bathroom was difficult and small. Apparently you can only use the luggage story room on the day you check in/out so if you're worried about having a safe place to store your stuff while you stay and are out, maybe this isn't the place. Meh.
