Liked: Central location near St Pauls and YHA are generally reliable as part of a larger organisation.

Disliked: The guy on reception didnt have a clue, he couldn't check my email from hostelbookers so I had to pay 50p to print out from the internet, he couldnt calculate the cost of the booking. It may have been his first day, but he should have had support or better training to be the only person on reception. The middle beds are claustrophobic, I moved to a top bed which was ok. No ladders to get out of the beds. Not the fault of the hostel, but drilling and banging started at 8am which topped off a bad experience.

Liked: Very close to St Paul's Cathedral, offering a wide range of transport facilities; 24h reception, so you may come and go when you want; maps and leaflets are available so if you don't know what to do in town they'll help; a board with the latest news of what's going on so you get a quick up to date of what's going on in London that may be of interest to you.

Disliked: The 3 bunker bed was a bit strange, would prefer it in another shape. No wifi, but they provide computers with internet in the reception area.

Liked: It is well run, dorms are clean and bunks comfortable, facilities are clean and work well. excellent lounge for time out. Best I've stayed in in London so far.

Disliked: Well, staff could be a bit more friendly but it's a busy place so forgiveable. Generally not an issue.
