Liked: I loved the atmosphere because most of the other travellers are very kind. You meet some pretty interesting people. The staff there were wonderful! Very helpful and kind. It is right in Camden so it is a great location, but it isnt close enough to be a bother when you sleep.

Disliked: The downstairs bedrooms and bathroom wasnt that great. Couches were uncomfortable.

Liked: Nothing at all, totally disappointed. We were thinking to change a hostelin a last minute

Disliked: We were staying in 4ppl bedroom. From the moment we arrived the receptionist was extremely rude, was shouting and didn't explain anything. He did not even let our girlfriend to come with us to the room to help us to bring our bags. When we entered the room it was so tiny and ugly with broken lockers-nothing like the pictures!! We were so afraid to leave our stuff there because there are soapy strange and dodgy people working in the hostel, almost homeless, they all have keys from rooms and that is so unsafe ! Well bathroom and toilet we didn't almost use, had to step in plastic bags inside. So unclean.. The night was a nightmare. The room faces the main road, wind was blowing thru the windows and there were always so many Arabic people next the window so we could hear every single word they were shouting and laughing. I think I had an hour of sleep that night Max. But got a full day headache thanks to it. Everything was letting us down.

Liked: The location, the price is one of the cheapest in London, toilets and shower better than in most dormitories in London

Disliked: the price still high compared to the quality. Beds are uncomfortable, the radiator didn't work, the room was moisture and cold if we kept the window open, if not, then the air was really bad. The breakfast not even worth mentioning..

Liked: Camden smart inn is very good value for money, relaxed, safe and confortable. You can get a good nights sleep and access a cosy kitchen, tv room and garden. There is also washing machine access for longer stays. The location is excellent, in between Mornington Cresent and Camden Town.

Disliked: The staff were friendly and helpful but I did have to go back to ask where the showers and kitchen were and what to do with the bedding. There is little signage around and there is no lift access, so be prepared to climb 5 flights up and down for breakfast! There are not many showers but I did not have to wait too long to use one. I would have liked to see soya milk at breakfast for my cereal and hot drinks as a vegan and for those with lactose intolerance! :)
