Liked: In a great central location, perfect for exploring London. The kitchen facilities were excellent and the hostel was always clean.

Disliked: The room was tiny. I know it's central London but it was like being in a box. There was also a serious lack of power outlets in the common areas and the internet was horrendously slow.

Liked: I liked the overall cleanliness and the location near SoHo and shopping.

Disliked: The hostel is family-oriented and I am a young adult who was looking to meet more people to go out with. Overall, everyone keeps to themselves and aren't very social as they have been in other places I've stayed at which typically only allow people between 18-35. On one night they put a 50+Year old man in our room which made it awkward.

Liked: Aamazing location.

Disliked: This is a family oriented hostel. There were nothing but parents travelling with their teenage and even pre-teen children. Not at all what I expected. Especially when there was a bar.

Liked: 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 hallway. Would recommend to young people and families who don't mind the walk to oxford circus.

Disliked: Pillows could be nicer, but overall you get great value for money.

Liked: 아무래도 공식 유스다 보니 기본 이상은 하는 듯 합니다. 깔끔하게 디자인된 호스텔 내부도 마음에 들었고 스탭들이 밝고 친절해서 잘 묵다 왔습니다. 위치도 나쁘지 않은편이나 골목에 있어서 약간 찾기가 힘들었네요-

Disliked: 화장실이 딸린 4베드 여자도미를 사용했는데, 오히려 화장실이 룸 안에 있다보니 아침에 일어나 준비하는 소리같은게 잘 들려서 개인적으로는 조금 잠을 설쳤습니다. 일찍일찍 일어나시는 분들에게는 크게 단점은 아닌듯 하지만...ㅎㅎ(화장실 자체는 깨끗하고 좋았습니다)

Liked: Cleanliness was amazing - I scored a 4 bunk female only room with a private bathroom - WOW what a difference than the others. All in all I am a world traveller and would go back with out thought again to this hostel. The best one I have been in to date.

Disliked: Advertising for cheap theatre tickets and none was available at all. Oh well - it was not a deal breaker though.
