Liked: very central and cheap

Disliked: a bit small and old with stairs all the way up to 4th floor...but I guess that just creates the cosy atmosphere, so no worries :)

Liked: Great location. Friendly staff.

Disliked: There was constantly loud music that could be heard from the main areas of the hostel. It was generated by a crowd that did nothing but smoke and sit near the kitchen. Granted, it could not be heard from the rooms.

Liked: The people in the reception were very kind, from the very beginning were very good at giving explanations and helping me with everything I needed. The location is excellent. It is a very nice place to stay

Disliked: It was a bit hot in the rooms at night, we had a fan though. I guess London is not hot, but I stayed the four hottest days of all!!

Liked: The kitchen was newly renovated and pretty spacious. Free breakfast was served every morning. There is also a TV room which features alot of movies from which u can choose from.

Disliked: Since the staff r all youngsters and party-goers, the kitchen was always booming LOUDLY with music. I happen to stay in room 1 which is the only room at the basement near the kitchen. So u can hear the music all the way till 12am. After which the people will start chatting at the corridors, running ard, laughing after all the alcohols. So it was pretty much hard to sleep until 2am. Get urself a pair of ear plugs.

Liked: The kitchen, you have everything to cook and you can save money with this.

Disliked: The first night were a lot of drunk people. The staff share the nights with the guests and it sn't bad but there's a point do you can hear all the screams.

Liked: Comfy bed, clean linen, clean toilets. Reminded me of my boarding school days. We stayed in a twin room in the annex (separate building) which was spacious, had a large window, sink, shelves, lamp and tea & coffee making facilities. Check in was quick and easy, and the girl on reception was friendly.

Disliked: Walls are paper thin so you can hear everything. Shower could do with a bit of a revamp...one of the shower rooms only had a very dim purple light to light up the room which I thought was a bit odd. Breakfast was sufficient but slightly crowded and hectic!

Liked: This was a really great hostel with a terrific location, amazing value, and a very helpful and effective staff. It got a little louder than I would have liked, but they shut down the noise at midnight, which was nice.

Disliked: Nothing that was the hostel's fault (i.e., noisy people staying in the room)

Liked: Great hostel. Stayed here before and would stay here again.

Disliked: It was noisy in the evening/night. The noise from the courtyard travels. In fairness, they close the courtyard at midnight, but I've been to several hostels where this would be done at 10.30pm.
