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.

Liked: TAX MUST BE PAID EXTRA UPON ARRIVAL. Basic and simple setup and quite noisy in the morning (from 7am). This hostel was perfect for what my friends and I were looking for i.e. a cheap bed! It's in a great location in Camden, near buses, tube and shops. Perfect for a short stay but the hostel is very basic yet clean. Includes breakfast but I didn't eat it so can't comment.

Disliked: NOISE in the morning. TAX on top of initial charge - READ THE FINE PRINT!
