Liked: Grandiose Lage! Sehr freundliches Personal, WLAN im Hostel (funktioniert auch im zimmer!) Handtücher, Adapter gegen £5 Pfand leihbar. Steckdose direkt hinter dem Bett. Frühstück inklusive! Und Küche mit Kühlschrank, Ofen, Herd und Geschirr. Bar ist sehr gut besucht und hat verschiedene Events, trotz dünner Matratzen (federn stark spürbar) super geschlafen!

Disliked: Nur 1 Dusche & 2 Toiletten pro Stockwerk, diese sind sehr dreckig und heruntergekommen. Badelatschen nicht vergessen! SAUBERKEIT wird hier nicht sehr groß geschrieben, aber wenn man nur zum schlafen dort ist, genügt es. Schließfächer kosten Geld aber im Gepäckraum waren unsere Sachen auch gut aufgehoben. Im ersten Stock könnte es durch die Bar nachts sehr laut werden, im 2. War davon nichts zu hören! Man schlief auf den Betten überraschend gut, obwohl man die Federn der Matratzen quasi sehen konnte.

Liked: The hostel is only a minute away from the underground station. And the beautiful Borough market and the river side are close by as well. So the location is really good. The free breakfast is alright, considering that it is free. And the rooms are clean , although there was some stuff left in mine that did not belong to anyone.

Disliked: Space is a problem in this hostel. The kitchen is a bit too small for the amount of guests and every floor only has one shower room. I admit that there are two showers per room, but because you can only lock the big room, no one can access the other shower when one of them is used. So that was a bit annoying at times. All in all, the hostel was completely alright for ots price and location.
