Liked: This place is no like other hostels. It's very cosy & the staff are super friendly & helpful. Free Wifi & break, even free luggage storage!!! ( other hostels would charge you 5pounds easily..) The location is very very central, SOHO, Oxford Street are all a doorstep away, you can easily walk to all the major tourist spots like Trafalgar Square/Piccadilly circuits. etc. Holborn station is 3mins walk away which takes you to pretty much everywhere you want. I would recommend everyone to stay at this hostel.

Disliked: Jiaojiao left no negative feedback.

Liked: It's hard to find another hostel at this price in the centre of London. Helpful staff, breakfast included.

Liked: very freindly staff and an old house. you dont feel like being in a hostel, it's more like a very big apartment. breakfast was quite good and you also had the possibility of free coffee, tea and hot chocolate all night long. kitchen was very clean. and the best was the location. we reached everything we want by walk, very close to the british museum, oxford street and picadilly circus.

Disliked: the toilet could have been more clean, but it was ok

Liked: Brilliant location, right next door to the British Museum and Oxford St. Nice beds and big kitchen with enough room to cook your own food or eat the free breakfast which they offer. Beds are comfy and the showers are always hot and the girls at reception are very friendly when you arrive. When I first arrived in London I stayed in many hostels in London but always tried my best to reserve my stay here, I highly recommend it to anybody visiting London.

Disliked: The metal draws underneath the beds squeak like a bitch and will defiantly wake you up if someone decides to open it in the middle of the night. Do yourself a favour and buy some WD14 before you go in.

Liked: Great location, friendly staff and really liked the fact that they have a little indoor garden area right next to the kitchen where you can go have a coffee and cigarette :)

Disliked: I guess the only thing that was slightly inconvenient was that they have very few power sockets in the room (8 bed dorm). Also, while the shower situation was pretty good (they have plenty) , in the morning you would need to wait quite a bit to get into a toilet. But other than that, really lovely place!

Liked: The staff were amazing and very helpful. The location was fantastic. Just around the corner from the station. With everywhere easily accessible. The rooms were clean and tidy. Everything you need and superb value for money..... Including free breakfast!

Disliked: The only fault would be that the kitchen is like Piccadilly Circus at breakfast times. But everyone is nice and friendly so there was no fighting over the toaster!

Liked: The 12-bed dorm was very large with enough space to store your belongings, staff was friendly and helpful, large kitchen with cupboards, fridge and freezer to keep your food, location was great, very central and attached to public transport

Disliked: A bit hard to find (no big sign at the entrance just a very small one), lockable cages underneath the beds were not very safe (one could reach in easily even when locked), reception was 24 hours but sometimes one had to wait a while for a member of staff to appear, staff was always making noisy barbecues in the yard listening to loud music from the kitchen (hip hop music which I didn't like)

Liked: Perfect accomodation for young backpackers, the location is excellent. Staff is friendly.

Disliked: Unfortunately was not clean as aspected, rooms and bathrooms as well. If you share a mixed room with other people, you have to expect noisy at night, someone enter the room and turn on the lights. Some people leave the bags in the middle of the room, so the staff can not clean the floor.
