Liked: Bathrooms cleaning control each hour. Warm. Staff is ok to help you.

Disliked: Strong bass raggae music until 5 or 6 am : is it an hotel or a jamaican nightclub ? And if you consider that there is no way to have a breakfast after 9am, maybe you should inform people that you have to sleep only about 3 hours a night in this place ! Bathrooms without lock or light. No pillow. Walls in paper : vibrations and sounds from the outside or other rooms everywhere.

Liked: The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were quite big - at least in the dorm of 6 - the breakfast was decent. Free wi-fi throughout the entire hostel was excellent, although sometimes didn't work.

Disliked: A lot of people were here long-term and they took over the common areas so it was virtually impossible to use the kitchen and the lounge unless you were part of their group. The bathrooms, although cleaned regularly, were still quite gross and smelly. Often, the cleaning also took place late at night as everyone was trying to get ready for bed, and with only 4 shower stalls and 4 toilets for the entire hostel, a whole bathroom can't be taken out of commission like that. Lastly, although they say there is storage for bags, there isn't any secure area to store apart from very narrow lockers in the rooms. The hostel dumps bags behind a banstand in the pub completely unsecured.

Liked: Previous comments mention how its an 'unsafe' area. Just use your common sense and you'll be fine! Hostel is a bit further out from the city but its a great way to expolore London. The place is very clean and great value for money. Meeting another aussie on my trip was also great! Matt was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with - always polite and attentive.

Disliked: No cutlery in kitchen.

Liked: The staff was friendly.

Disliked: There is something slightly off about the property as in the floors slant. I didn't feel safe coming back to the hostel at night, there is one toilet and the showers have very little room and leak on the floor of the bathroom. The pub underneath turns out very interesting characters at night and loud music.

Liked: Not much. The beds were fairly comfortable. The kitchen area was decent, though not very clean.

Disliked: Pretty much everything. The pub downstairs played really, really ridiculously loud music all through the nights I was there. I could barely sleep. The area was not the best and I did not feel very safe coming back to the hostel at night. The crowd in the pub downstairs also made me feel a bit uncomfortable. Also although the not the property's fault, but alot of the people staying there were rude and inconsiderate to other people, especially at night. People were even smoking in the hostel. The bathrooms weren't very good. Toilet seats were broken and the hot water barely worked. All in all I did not enjoy my stay at all. Thank goodness I was only there for a few nights.

As a family with children

09 May 2011

Liked: At least the sheets were clean!

Disliked: Stayed here to get to the O2 arena, which was a bit of a trial to reach. It was grim, quite frankly. I spoke to a lass there who said she found it clean compared to other places she had stayed, but I thought it was dreadful. The showers on the 3rd flr weren't working properly and the kitchen had some sort of bug (a cockroach?) crawling around the work surfaces, then up the kitchen wall and hiding behind the cooker hood. The showers were filthy and I wasn't impressed by the shared-by-both-genders bathrooms, either...Breakfast was OK but felt thrown together. Much preferred Generator in Russell Square.
