Liked: it is good if you want cheap place in a very nice area of london, full of pubs and places full of young people having fun...because it is cheap, it can't offer very much but if you only need place to sleep and shower, with no major demands, it's perfect...there are very small room, with no ventilation at all, it was very hot...

Annerose Richter

10 May 2010

Liked: Die Unterkunft ist gut erreichbar, die Bedienung sehr freundlich, die Ausstattung ist nicht besonders, für eine Nacht aber ok, es fehlt ein Bad, wo man sich die Zähne putzen und so weiter ... Bettwäsche und Bett sauber, aber es kamen noch 5 € Taxe dazu, was im Internet nicht erwähnt war, das ist nicht gut, das Frühstück sehr mangelhaft, aber wohl landestypisch, naja für 1 Naxht ok, die Küche sollte mal aufgeräumt und gesäubert werden, aber da der Preis soweit astimmt ist es für eine Nacht ok, wir sind ja auch nicht mehr so jung, es hat aber Spass gemacht, die Heizungen waren zu heiß, schade um die Energie

07 May 2010

Liked: It was close to where I wanted to be & cheap. However it was not comfortable at all. The blankets provided are single thin wool ones, & the window in my room didn't fit properly in the frame so wouldn't shut - I was freezing! Things like toilets & kitchen were poorly signposted so I had to ask for directions for everything. Apparently there were common rooms but I've no idea where.

Alice Asnaghi

08 March 2010

Liked: This was the WORST hostel ever! Stuff isn't helpful at all. Very bossy and arrogant. You pay 1,50 pound per day to keep your locker safe and they deliberately open it without any consense, moves people in other bedrooms without notice AT ALL. The only thing that doesn't sucks is the location.FORGET ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!

Thomas Clay

24 January 2010

Liked: Apart from the hostel being in a great location near Camden Town tube station, it is absolutly rubbish.The bathroom had no cold water for the sink, the shower was freezing and a door had fell off. Our 4 bed dorm was boiling all the time as the radiator seemed incapable of turning off.The staff were not very helpful, only really seemed interested in getting money out of us. There's a 5% tax that you have to pay on arrival which was the first thing the guy said to us. Also, it seemed that any key could open any room, as there was a guy in our dorm when we got there and somebody tried getting into our room one morning.I seriously would never consider staying here again. It was more like a prison than a hostel!

20 January 2010

Liked: The place is really in the Camden Area,good to go out. The rooms are not clean and very small. The matrass was not confortable and not clean.Linen are the same of the train couchette. The window of the room didn't close properly,so a cold stream of air entered.The kitchen was in average dirty and the hotplates didn't warm as much as to cook food. The breakfast was poor. The bathrooms were ok but the showers were not clean and COLD. Staff didn't help us in finding places around.They simply didn't kwon. We asked to leave the luggage for 2 hours after the check out and the guy refused. I would not recommend this place at all.
