Liked: The location was perfect for sightseeing and proximity to main areas such as Oxford street. It felt safe and secure. Good value for money if you just need somewhere basic to sleep.

Disliked: There wasn't much of a social vibe in the common areas, as people mainly used the area for the computers and to use wifi. The wifi is also only available on the ground level and is not free, which is not mentioned on here.While most of the staff were really helpful and friendly, some were a bit abrupt and I witnessed some slight rudeness towards other guests.

Liked: Atmosphere, location, cleanliness, security. Service, staff really helpfull and warm.

Disliked: No table and chair in the room for someone stay on top of bank will hard just stand in the room, sometime they need to just sit for few min after day trip. Or even just put make up for little time while dress up. Its ok for the bottom bunk they put it on the bed but for someone on the top bunk??? Really inconvenient. So people prefer and asking for first bed. I was few here so i did not know n think.

Liked: Its near to the tube, great staff and 24 hour reception/bar.

Disliked: I stayed in a shared bedroom with private bathroom. The bathroom was floodded after one shower... Imagine after four showers... The shower curtain is not enough... The lights in the bed are very strong. You should change for one more "soft".

Liked: All in all it was a great stay, for the money you pay I would well recommend it. Nice and clean, so near to the city centre, a pretty good environment.

Disliked: I wish there were locks on the locker cabinets already, so you wouldn't have to buy them by yourself or bring them with you. However, that is my only complaint.

Liked: Very clean rooms and nice green bed linen. Lockers in the room. Close to Oxford Street, great lounge area.

Disliked: No free Wi-Fi and had to pay extra for everything (e.g., towels). Lockers in the room require your own lock.
