Liked: The hostel was in a very convinient location only a few stops on the tube to all major attractions and a pleasant walk to Regent park or Camden Town. The staff was helpful and the lounge area was a nice spot to unwind with big couches. The beds were also pretty comfortable.

Disliked: The bar downstairs was convinient but did not have a great atmosphere. The food wasn't that great either although we always appreciated the complimentary breakfast. The bottom room with 18 bed is right beside the common room so just be prepared with a pair of earplugs.

Liked: Thee location is excellent especially if you're coming from Stanstead, the airport bus stops nearby. Two jubilee line stops can also be found very close by. The place itself is very clean, beds are comfortable and they each have a curtain for privacy and a reading light. There are plugs everywhere to recharge devices and the wifi works really well . Staff are friendly and helpful, the lounge/common room is spacious and ideal to relax. The breakfast room is also large and there's a good choice of food!

Disliked: It's a bit on the expensive side for a hostel but it's definitely worth it!
