Liked: Decent location, not too far from the tube station. Free Wifi.Curtains around the bed.

Disliked: I now know what a sardine in a can feels like! 15 beds (5 X 3 high bunk beds) in a TINY room. Virtually nowhere to put luggage. It felt very unsafe to leave anything in the room, no just expensive stuff. Bathrooms and toilets were not nice, they both smelled.

21 September 2010

Liked: BEDS: personal curtains and light.

Disliked: SHOWERS: very cramped shower cubicles which were often dirty. SPACE: rooms were cramped with beds (3-level high bunks) with very little room to place your bag. STAFF: ranged from good (the Asian lady) to appalling (Dedley). Staff members who were sarcastic, drunk and, at one point, naked, are not what I accept from a hostel. OVERBOOKING: on my final night the hostel had been overbooked with three guys being allocated the same bed. this involved waking a guy up at 1am for moving around of luggage.

Liked: free wifi if you had your own computer, they had curtains around the beds so if you went to bed early you werent disturbed by the light

Disliked: staff werent that friendly, there was a group of people living there until they found jobs and a place to live who made it really uncomfortable and walked around like they owned the place. No hot showers

Liked: nothing

Disliked: No security in the lobby; they didn't even ask for passports during check-in. It seemed like anyone could wander in and at a few points people did. 1 tv in common room, not 2. 1 Toilet on our floor of 6. And the toilet was broken. Roof terrace was locked. Triple decker bunk-beds were stuffed into the smallest rooms, and because of the curtains (which were a good idea), it made the middle and top bunks really uncomfortable to get in and out. Staff I dealt with were unhelpful and seemed to have an attitude.
