Liked: Kitchen was fully equipped. You needed to pay a fully refundable deposit for cooking equipment however. Common area and kitchen was large. Rooms, kitchen and bathrooms cleaned regularly. Free wifi, with excellent connection in the common areas and dorms (well it reached the 15 bed dorm downstairs). FREE BREAKFAST!

Disliked: A large group of primary school aged children stayed while we were there. It was fine when they were out, but it was annoying when they took up the ENTIRE common area or woke you up with loud chattering outside our dorm at 7am. The 15 bed dorm was really hot and stuffy, and smelled like dirty socks.

Liked: It has a large open common room with a pool table which was great. They offer long term stays so if you are looking to set yourself up in London but need somewhere in the meantime its a great place to stay. Not too far from the tube.If your looking for a party hostel this is not the one for you but a good hostel.

Disliked: 3 level bunk beds but you get used to them. Just try and request a bottom bunk

Liked: Staff were friendly. I had on the same day left the SafeStay Hostel because of the rudeness of a couple of staff members there and i found this hostel more friendlier. There was a nice mixture of people there.

Disliked: The room was a bit shoddy and my pillow was wafer thin also i had to leave a £5 deposit for a towel which was a bit stiff.

Liked: Mi é piace iuta molto l'atmosfera che si é creata con i ragazzi che era o qui!

Disliked: Le stanze sono veramente calde.. Per via dell elevato numero di persone che dormono.. I primi giorno mi sn svegliato tutto sudato.. Ma basta sfilare la coperta pesante e usare solo il "sacco" a mo' di lenzuolo..
