14 September 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It's clean, civilised, and the curtains and lamps in the beds are wonderful for privacy and reading late at night / early a.m. This is the only hostel in London I will stay in instead of a hotel. Only one minor suggestion: could there be a hot water pot available at night for guests to make tea (and not the tea in the machine, which is awful?) thanks.

Liked: I really liked the hospitality and the atmosphere, everyone was so nice and friendly. It is a very safe hostel, you know that everyone respect each other and they won't steal from you, great feeling! It is a perfect place to meet new people; in the bar, your dorm or in the entrance, everyone talks and likes to to be social, perfect place to meet new friends to explore London with.

Liked: 24 hour help desk, no curfew, great neighborhood even if it is off the beaten path, a variety of people stay there it isn't just college students so it is great for people who are older, couples, families, or people staying by themselves. This place is clearly set up for a variety of people with different backgrounds not just college students which it what makes it so attractive for people like me who are over the college scene.
