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: Wifi available everywhere, helpful staff, decent breakfast. Great location right next to the British Museum and shops, and near the Holborn subway station.

Disliked: The toilet on the third floor was a constant threat to block. A lot of stairs to the top where it can be quite stuffy.

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.

Liked: I did not like anything about this property.

Disliked: 1) The Hostels were very dirty and it felt like they do not clean it except the sheets. The garbage cans in the bathroom did NOT get emptied at all during our 5 day stay. Pads and tampons were overflowing in the garbage can. PUKE. The shower drains were obviously clogged as the water did not go down properly while showering. 2) The rooms were deceiving as displayed in the pictures. Smaller than what the pictures portrayed it as. 3) WIFI did not work in the rooms. Wifi worked in the room for the first day but f or the rest of the days it did not work. When we asked the staff they told us to just use it in the lobby.

Liked: location - close from hot spots like British museum (less than 5 min), soho, picadelly circus, covent garden. Many supermarkets near by. Nice atmosphere, like partying in the kitchen

Disliked: Rooms and kitchen are separated. It's not in the same building. Toilett and shower room are not quite good compare to other hostels, but considering that it's in London, it's okay....

Liked: Great location, easy walk to Leicester Square, Covent Garden, Oxford St and really helpful staff if you have any questions.

Disliked: We had a room on the 4th floor and in a week of high temperatures it was a hot box why made sleeping difficult. A fan was provided which helped somewhat. When the temperature cooled however it was fine.

Liked: Great atmosphere! Great staff! I felt very comfortable there. You can hang out and watch movies in the living room area or chill in the basement kitchen with some beers and other hostelers. They provide breakfast in the morning. Overall a great place! The bedspreads are all kept clean.

Disliked: The bathrooms could be a little cleaner, but they def were probably about as good as it gets for sharing with other stayers. I wish there were more full length mirrors.

Liked: Very close to the center, sight on british museum! Also the transports are very easy and soon te get (nearly 5 minutes walking for the nearest tube station). The street where is located is very calm and safe even if it is in centre of the city. Umbelievable.

Disliked: The room are not big enough to keep that beds..but it's london so u have to adapt yourself if u want to save money. Also we booked for 2 beds and we hoped that they gave us a bunk-bed; but when we arrived in the room there was another girl who had occupied one our bed. We complained with the staff but it takes 2 days for going the girl away.
