    What a place!! It was fantastic, one of the best hostels seen this year. Look out for the Brunel Museum nearby and its garden of delights!

    My friend and I stayed in a dormitory for 6 people. The staff was friendly, the access was very nice (Metro Station Canada Water) and near the station there are a small super market and some restaurants so if you want to get something to eat on your way home it is very convenient, too.

    Happy with the visit and the room, only minor issue was a lack of Wi-Fi (it's only available in the foyer). The breakfast was a bit grim, but for £6 you can't expect too much.

    Great location and helpful staff 24h. The room was very hot even if it was cool outside, AC wasn’t very good and the windows barely open... I would definitely stay again though! The location was quiet but close to the city and Thames.

    Pretty good for a short stay. Had a private room on top floor. Was quiet and clean. A bit of a walk to Canada Water but nothing too crazy. Would stay here again. Don’t shower with the door open or the alarm goes off.

    Very Good

    It was good value for a night in London, in a good location for where I needed to visit, around 40 mins on the tube from Kings Cross. I had a twin private and it turned out to have its own bathroom too, which was a nice bonus, and a bunk bed. The room was basic and looked like a while since the bathroom was renovated, but it was adequately clean and the bed was comfortable and clean.

    The hostel was a comfortable stay all in all. The only thing I disliked was that the availability of the wifi was only in the common area. If the idea is to have people mingle then I only saw people on their laptops and phone with their headphones on. So neither does it solve the purpose(if that's is the point) and also is a trouble not having wifi in the rooms. My bathroom did not have curtains which was another annoying thing tbh. But location wise the hostel is pretty decent.

    Staff is noisy and not friendly sometime. Organized poorly. Did not feel comfortable. No freezer. Always needed to call to open front door. But there is very good room for relaxing! Good sofas but old furniture, bathroom. Scent is not good in the living rooms.
