Good value for its money Apr 27, 2011
Located in a good area, 4 minutes walk from the tube station, it´s near the center of London.

The beds were OK, but mine sagged a bit at the middle. The toilets are very small, and could use with a bit of refurbishment. Although not dirty per se, the bins in it should be cleaned more often.

The prices are acceptable, considering the area it's located in. But bear in mind that the breakfast is not included in the price. The staff, with only one exception, were extremely friendly and helpful.The lounge areas are also nice and relaxing.

During my stay, not many young people were staying in. Apparently it's more used by people who are in London in search of a job and families who can't afford to stay in a hotel, so the fun factor wasn't exactly very high there.

Overall, if you're looking for a averagely cheap place to stay with friendly staff and near Central London, a good option.

It was my first staying at hostel and didn't like it. The hostels halls and rooms look like you're on board in some kind of a ship. The smell is not nice. I think it's from the kitchen because the whole ground floor has a bad food smell. There was no hot water in 3 showers, so we had to go to showers that were far from our room. Also, we payed for 3 days of internet/wi-fi 7pounds, discovered that only one person can use it, so my friend bought one for herself...but AFTER we payed it, found out that it doesn't work anywhere but in the reception and lobby room! they didn't want to refund. The noise is terrible. There were a lot of old people but also a lot of kids who were screaming and shouting and running up against the hall from 6am. The room was twin bed room, the smallest i have ever seen in my life. The stuff was nice but they just couldn't save the hostels dignity. Never coming back.
