Liked: Lovely building, well taken care of . Easy to find. Privacy curtains on beds are a great idea.

Disliked: Didn't see any curtains or doors on the shower stalls- don't think I would take a shower here.

Liked: The beds have curtains which enable privacy and darkness when the lights go on. There are different bathrooms to visit and I got my laundry done. Pleasant areas to sit in and eat. Helpful and friendly staff and interesting guests!

Disliked: Very limited cooking facilities - just one microwave but at least one could warm something up and keep a bit of food refrigerated.The music was fine in the bar area, but the music was a bit disturbing piped into the living room which is usually a quiet area. That said, when it was soothing, rather than heavy metal, I didn't mind it.

Liked: The builduing is really nice, looks like a castle and the most important all the time was clean. Also there is areas where you can chill out and meet people.

Disliked: The kintchen is very small, and you can not make your food comfortable.

Liked: The building itself is beautiful, the staff are really approachable and more than happy to help, location is ideal, about a 3 minute walk to both tube stations. Lots of options in the area for food and drinks, on the same line as Westminster & Waterloo which is handy for people visiting London for the first time.

City break

Liked: Located in a charming grandiose house, in London zone 2 - not a nearest to the city, but a convenient 30mins walk from Camden. Reception is open and available for check-in 24 hours. Even the 18bed dorm is really spacious (room itself is divided into two floors), each bed is equipped with curtains to makeyourself a bit of privacy and darkness.

Disliked: Toilets and showers to guests ratio is rather poor. Also there was water all over the bathroom floor repeatedly. Door (or rather inconsiderate guests) makes noise at night - a sign "close the doors carefully at night" needed!
