Liked: Impeccably managed, tidy and logical facilities. This is how all hostels should operate.

Disliked: Nothing but the price was a little steep. Everything you get and the feeling of going to sleep in a clean, well run hostel is worth it.

Liked: Location is top notch- walking distance to almost everything. Very clean.

Disliked: but pretty sterile, no real character. A huge behemoth of a place, kind of hard to meet people. Staff aren't great, one of those places where they seem to think working there is a party for them. You may or may not get attention from one of the three or four people behind the desk when you go up to it. Plus despite belonging to the wealthy YHA chain, you have to pay for wifi, breakfast, tea, coffee, towels, etc. Cheapskates.

Liked: The hostel was incredibly clean. The atmosphere was great and it was very easy to meet people. Staff is pretty friendly!

Disliked: Unfortunately, I only had cold showers both days I was there, not sure if this is typical. The location isn't the best, but it's in walking distance of everything, otherwise you can take the tube. Internet was a bit expensive, 3 pounds an hour but they did offer free printing.

Liked: Location - Central London, 5 mins walk from Great Portland St. Station Nice atmosphere downstairs (where reception/bar/restaurant/lounge locates) ppl talk and drink with each other. - sometimes a problem if your roommates got drunk and return to room at 3am...... Really new and clean facilities

Disliked: Pricey-Everything costs! (Wifi £5/24hr, I usually walk to McDonald's on Oxford St. for complimentary wifi) Odd personal in-room locker, you need to have a bigger(but not overly big) padlock for their lockers, a normal luggage padlock cannot lock well (and still can be opened..)I dun wannt purchase their £3 padlock so i gave up using it. Sparse toilet and showers....2rooms (twenty beds i guess) share 1 toilet and 1 showroom?

Liked: Great hostel, one of the best I've stayed and I've stayed in alot. Very safe and clean, friendly staff. Nice design something I've never said about a hostel before! Great reception area with a friendly cafe vibe where people can hang put and use the internet and order food and beers. Not a nasty party party hostel, great place to stay if your on your own.

Disliked: Mattresses bit on the thin side, but other than that no complaints.
