Nigel Marriott thinks…

"Three house keepers keep the place very clean, they are very pleasant and people need to talk to them more. The included breakfast is a bonus."

Family Holiday

07 April 2011

Liked: The location is good for young people. Near the subway.

Disliked: The beds are short for me (1,86 m) the batroom was in another floor, so was the showers and they could be a bit cleaner. the breakfast could be a bit better. Sometimes the staff could be more welcoming. I didn´t have an outlet in my room because it was right behind somebodyelses bed, so it was useless, so I had to use the receptions outlet. A bit far to try to walk to the major places. So you spend a lot of money on transport.

Liked: particularly the polite and helpful staff, cleanliness was okay for a hostel, 24h opening times and 24h staff at the counter, brilliant location in the middle of Camden - great!

Disliked: the toilet next to our room (40) didn't flush properly, I wouldn't recommend using that one... that's why I ticked the box between 'average' and 'bad' on cleanliness. Otherwise nothing negative to say! Remember it's a hoStel, not a hotel.

Liked: It is a good time and fun place to meet people with an excellent location.

Disliked: The cleanliness is terrible, the doors are always sticky. The kitchen is disgusting and full of ants, good luck finding some clean dishes. Also the staff will shut down the common rooms if to many people start having fun and having a few drinks.

Liked: the location

Disliked: the reception area smelled of smoke as the staff were smoking at reception our rooms door was funny in that you had to totally slam it shut. was a little worried in leaving our stuff there while we ate out. the room was tiny for £40 a night you couldn't swing a cat in it the shared toilet was filthy we couldn't pay by credit card it had to be cash, by the time we arrived we just wanted some food and to go to sleep not to have to go back out to find cash - this should be made clear to future guests.
