Customer review

17 October 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I chose it because of the Hostelbooker rating of 89%. It was excelllent - friendly, welcoming, clean - and I liked the curtained bunk beds - excellent idea. Only a couple of hundered yards from the Underground. Free coffee and internet - and excellent breakfast. If you go in for a shower take in a bag to put ya stuff - you don;t seem to be able to have pressure on low and get hot water - but a minor point - would give it 10/10

Renee Versteegen

12 October 2009 Renee would recommend this property

Liked: Busy and bustling hostel. Lots of different activities that you can do here if you're into that. Because of maintenance work on the Jubilee line the hostel is difficult to reach by tube in weekends until well into 2010. Bus services are a good enough alternative though but will take a lot longer to get from one place to another. Stayed in a room with 12 double beds. Bed was comfortable and the curtains around it were much appreciated. My bed didn't have a lot of headroom, I could only just sit up straight, banged my head against the beams of the bed above me many times. The hostel had more than enough toilets and showers, even though it was busy I never had to wait for one :) I enjoyed my stay here and can recommend the hostel to others.

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.

Disliked: Stefanie left no negative feedback.
