Liked: Great price for a 6 bedroom room. Coffee and milk at breakfast.

Disliked: It was very loud than someone was in the bathroom. Very small rooms and corridors. One member of the staff was not very talkative and helpful.

Liked: The location is excellent, perfect for those new to the city. Very basic accommodation but cleaning was regulated to an adequate level. Plenty of people stay in the common room and kitchen areas so there's every chance of hanging out with cool people, very social. The staff were civil and the receptionists were very friendly, helpful and polite. Basically a great place to sleep for cheap and perfect for discovering the city starting with Camden Town (2 mins walk) and Camden underground station (2mins walk). Food is more than affordable so take the opportunity to cook in the hostel kitchen.

Disliked: Ensuite showers leak onto the bedroom floor and there's nothing to clean the water up with (unless you're willing to sacrifice you own towel), the water also sprays across the whole shower cubical so there's zero chance of keeping your hair dry (shower cap was vital). The bedrooms are very small but the more beds in them the less space there is to walk, change clothes, get past other occupants etc. An 8 bed room barely housed enough space for luggage. I stayed in two different rooms, one was lovely and well heated all day, the other was so cold at night I had cover up with my coat. There's one computer for the whole property at £0.50 for 15 minutes . You can store luggage before/after your stay for 1.50 per bag (it was bit unreasonable that I paid more having two small bags than someone with 1 huge suitcase). There was attempted theft through the dorm window but keep them shut and you'll be fine.

Liked: It's cheap, but you get what you pay for- the place is only good if you just want a bed and no space for anything else.

Disliked: Pretty much everything, but mainly that there are mousetraps in the place- doesn't make it feel very clean. Freezing showers barely big enough to get in, no towels, very small living room for the number of people staying there. Had to haul a huge suitcase up three floors.

Liked: Location is perfect: easy access to tube and several bus lines. Reception staff is friendly and helpful. Everything works with a key card, so it makes things safer. Breakfast was enough to start the day.

Disliked: The place could use a good scrub, especially the floors.
