Liked: Cheap for London. Clean. Free breakfast

Disliked: Very "corporate" hostel. Internet costs extra. Packed in like sardines, if it weren't for the partition walls I could have spooned the 2 people next to me.

Liked: Good location, free breakfast, reasonably secure. A fun place to stay if you're around 18- 21 on a first trip to Europe. Staff were pretty helpful.

Disliked: No free wifi- probably the only hostel I've ever been in without itBedrooms way too cramped- trying to fit in as many people as possibleJust too big to feel like a cosy friendly backpackers placePerhaps too much aimed at the 18-21 year old crowd.

Liked: I liked the free breaky in the morning, the pub on fridays and saturdays has a really Dj who plays decent tunes. Nice and close to the Tube..3stops away from middle of London (palace, Big Ben..etc) Its a big place perfect for every traveler I reckon.

Disliked: It was over heated, I mean hey I know its London but mate turn the heat down!! It gets a bits stuff down stairs and you have to pay for internet which sucks! But hey it was good!

Liked: it was quite near to the train station. the showers always had hot water

Disliked: i stayed in a budget double and the room was the reallyyy small. the dumpster area was also situated right outside our room so it was unpleasant for us to open the window. we had to pay for the wifi.
