Liked: absolutely nothing

Disliked: receptionist had a bad attitude and was not helpful whatsoever; everything had a charge including lockers, luggage storage, etc.; one night, they checked in too many poeple in my room and the staff just told the new guests to move the stuff from my bed and take it. i had a hard time even convincing the staff to give me new sheets for a new bed; half of the poeple staying here were junkies; the staff does not care who is there as long as they are getting paid; the room is small and smells of mould; when i was trying to eat their awful breakast in the morning, i was constantly bothered by a fix-it guy who would continually ask if i was done so he could measure the sink or counter.

Liked: Really cheap hostel. Restrooms were unclean. Dorms were small. Hostel charged for everything they could. Just a place to spend the night, honestly.

Liked: Good value and within walking distance of multiple tube stations. Am a fan of the Camden location, really fun place.

Disliked: Staff aren't as friendly as other hostels I've stayed in, and the stairs, so many stairs. But I would still stay there again.

Liked: Price

Disliked: This is ridiculously non-backpacker place, I saw almost no youth face. Instead, the the small social area in the evening was dominated by 50+ homeless losers who were drinking cheap beers.... Cheap TV-mediated chat... I had to sleep in a room with all old people, one of them seems to be cross-dresser (wears female black nylon stocking)... A place for freaks...
