23 November 2010

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: The three tiered bunk beds made the room very crowded and warm. The bathrooms were very dirty and there was only 2 showers and 2 toilets to 50 people. The receptionist when we got there was extremely rude and unhelpful. Have never stayed in a hostel this bad before and cannot recommend any aspect of it. Please do not stay here, it should be shut down.

19 October 2010

Liked: The living room

Disliked: The dormrooms are too small for so many people:up to 15p in a very small room, there wasn´t even space enough to walk, you had to jump in between the bags of the people in the dark when you went to sleep. The beds are VERY small. Though the location isn´t far from the London Eye, it is not very close neither. Breakfast is free but served way too early for being at holidays (7 to 9 in the morning) and if you want to sleep some more you get no breakfast at all... All in all it wasn´t very comfortable and next time I´ll go to other place.
