Jessica Morris thinks…

"Great value for money, clean rooms, friendly staff and people. A bit of a walk to oxford circus but nothing you can't manage. Great soundproofing of the room from the outside, not so much the…"

Liked: It was secure, safe and friendly! Lots of opportunities to meet others if you want or just keep to yourself whatever you would prefer. Cooking facilities were available and easy to access. Great atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely come back!

Disliked: Wifi is only available in common areas. As a traveller often you want to use things like Skype and talk to family and friends and I could only do this in the common areas which is often difficult.

Liked: It's location was great - walkable distance to a major train station (Oxford Circus) and shopping. The staff was very welcoming and friendly.

Disliked: The Wi-Fi access. They didn't offer free Wi-Fi. Paid Wi-Fi is only accessible on the lower floors, so not in most of the rooms.

Liked: Have lived in hostels for years all over the world and this is one of the cleanest and most well equipt with facilities i have stayed in. Downside is that the walls must be really thin which makes for broken nights sleeps due to the noise from people passing through the hallways but thats hostel life. Other than this and th overly warm temperature in the kitchen areas i have nothing negative to say about this place. Great location, very clean, friendly helpful staff and great facilitiea. Didnt stay long enough to be able to comment on the atmosphere but the sitting areas near reception are very nice and look like a great place to meet other people.

09 December 2013 Chiara would recommend this property

Liked: The common spaces and the bedroom were clean and nice. Near every bed there's a plug for everyone and a in the bedroom there was enough space for the luggage, that could be closed with a key. I had the private bathroom in a 4 female dorm, and it was quite nice. As often happens, though, the shower wasn't very comfortable, but the overall impression is excellent. The position is quiet but very central! The services offered were good: there's a big kitchen (well organized) and a clean space to wash the clothes and dry the hair.

Disliked: Showers were not very comfortable, and people were a little bit noisy.

Liked: During my stay, I feel the hostel is safe with lockers provided. Also, there were lockers for my luggage after my check out and before my check in. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The facilities were all adequate and sufficient. I was amazed by the kitchen stuff!

Disliked: I guess the lift, waited too long sometimes.

Liked: It was my first ever hostel and I am very pleased with my stay.

Disliked: No internet in rooms. I mean common, 21st century! Buses, trains and planes have free internet these days. :)) Paid internet was available in the lobby / reception / breakfast area. Tip: Go for a breakfast to nearby costa, starbucks or nany's cafe and use their free internet.

Liked: Very, very helpful and friendly staff, maps on hand for people to use and staff were really happy to answer questions about various attractions. The location was fantastic. Having washing machines and dryers on site was also very useful, as was having key cards instead of actual keys for the rooms. Not having internet access in the rooms was annoying but I understand that the centre of London is expensive enough as it is. And I really enjoyed going to Wicked, which thanks to the hostel I was able to go to with a half-priced ticket!

Disliked: -Not having internet access in rooms (see above). -Showers weren't very well designed - no boundary between the shower and the rest of the floor, meaning clothes could very easily get wet as you were trying to have your shower.
