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.

17 June 2013 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Location, definitely.

Disliked: The rooms were not really cleaned well, still hair in the wash basin and quite dirty under the bed. One of our beds in a private 2-bed room squeaked quite heavily, which is why I ended up moving my mattress on the floor. The closing mechanism of the doors is a real pain. Every time one of your neighbours closes their door you wake up instantly.

Liked: The location is excellent, right near a tube station. The staff were lovely and helpful. It's definitely an old building like they say but despite appearing a little run down it is very clean. I'd definitely recommend for backpackers on a budget.

Disliked: It looks a little dodgy when you first walk in given the age of the building, but this is common amongst accommodation in London.

Liked: The staff were extremely helpful and went out of their way to assist us if we had any questions. The hostel is a 2 minute walk from the tube which takes you anywhere. The rooms are pretty spacious and the breakfast was great.

Disliked: Sometimes the toilets were not cleaned, although it is not always the hostels fault. Its hard to maintain clean toilets because people use them all the time.

Liked: The staff was very available and friendly. The services were very good also, the breakfast was in the kitchen and coocked by ourselves, but it doesn´t lack anything. The environment was great.

Disliked: Despite of the cleanliness was very good, the bathrooms and showers were few for some many rooms. I was lucky because the hostel was too empty, otherwise it would be complicated.
