Liked: Lovely, very helpful staff.

Disliked: In rooms of 6, there are two sets of bunkbeds with a third bed at a right angle - very awkward to get in and out of, I have the bruises on my shins to prove it!

Liked: It was warm, comfortable, and secure. There were plenty of showers and toilets. Good value for money, and a good location, close to St Paul's Cathedral, and local cafes and restaurants.

Disliked: The beds were strangely set up, so that it was a bit of a pain getting up and down to the top bunk if the lower bunks were occupied, but I soon got used to it.

Liked: Location - close enough to get in to the city by bus within 20 minutes - on main bus route to Londons King cross station

Disliked: No bedside lights , so if someone wanted to read , the main lights had to be turned on.
