Liked: If you like to go out drinking & you're looking for more of a party hostel, this place would be great. If you want to go to bed early & get up early to go sightseeing, this might not be the best place for you. Also they don't provide towels so bring your own.

Liked: Average Hostel. Not dirty but old and run down like a lot of hostels. No free Beer and no towels and the free internet is down the road somewhere. Location is good for a fun night out but at least a 40min walk into town but easy with transportation. Was not a horrible stay but I wouldn't stay again.

Rebecca Graves

01 March 2010 Rebecca would recommend this property

Liked: this hostel is EXCELLENT for nights out. Every night, they offer cheap nights out for everyone including loads of free drinks and cheap meals - perfect for backpackers! - we stayed in a private room which was perfect for us although there is no air-con, just a fan and you can't open the windows at night because it's in a noisy location. Loads of clubs and bars are close and the tube station is only 3 mins up the road. Staff were excellent and really helpful - free breakfast!
