Liked: the comfy chair in the dorm room, the overall level of cleanliness. the beds, the matresses. everything was actually more than i expected!

Disliked: only half of the lights in the dining/breakfast room were on/in working order, so it was very dimly lit when i was having dinner there. they really should replace the bulbs.

Liked: Great relaxing rooms, breakfast area, good food at excellent price, very clean, very secure. Lovely to have St Pauls on back door. Have stayed several times before and will stay again - despite bit of a nuisance being on central line (not the hostel's fault!).

Disliked: Only negative was no reading light and/or not able to turn main light off without getting up from bunk. Stayed in room 42 (bunks - bottom double, single top).

Liked: Stayed in a private twin room which actually had a double bed with a single bunk on top so that was a nice surprise. Sink in the room which was useful. Plenty of showers+toilets on each floor, never had to wait. The staff were great, nothing was too much trouble. They had a good sense of humour+always up for a laugh! The hostel offers discounts on certain attractions and theatre tickets which is good as London is so expensive. The intercom system to enter the building was good, felt very secure. Great value for money! Didn't eat in the hostel but there seemed to be a decent range on offer and reasonably priced snacks on reception. The staff are definitely a credit to this hostel. Other reviews talk about noise however we didn't find this to be a particular problem. St Paul's occassionally disturbed us but considering how close to the Cathedral we were, this was only a minor issue. Literally a two minute walk to St Paul's tube station which was great to use as a base for visiting various parts of London. We had a great stay would definitely reccomend to others for location+the price!

Disliked: The luggage room provided is a great resource, however you have to pay if you want to use a locker in there (not compulsary) and the money is not refunded as it is in most places which was a bit of a surprise. There are lots of stairs in the hostel, so although not a particular problem for us, would probably not be suitable for people who are less mobile.

Liked: Great location.

Disliked: Dorm beds are three levels and the top bunk is really awkward to get into. You have no choice but to step right beside someones head to get up or down as part of beds 1 and 2 are under the bunk above it.

Liked: Skorzystam przy nastepnej okazji. Niska cena, czysta posciel i prysznice, no i oczywiscie lokalizacja! Najlepiej jednak wynajac z grupka znajomych prywatny pokoj np 'czworke' bo jesli spicie w shared room, lozka sa blisko siebie i moze to przeszkadzac. Poza tym naprawde polecam!
