Liked: Location wise was great! Close to Oxford Street = SHOPPING! Comfy bed and had a place for us to store food at the kitchen. Everything was good!

Disliked: The power of the shower head couldn't be adjusted and the bathroom would flood a little due to the strong shower and water splatter.

16 September 2013 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Very helpful staff and great location. Price was really good as well.

Disliked: The lockers inside the room was of very poor quality, 3 out of 4 of their locking mechanisms where broken and could easily been opened without the key after you lock them. Also our power sockets above our beds where broken when we arrived in the room, they got them fixed the next day but my power socket was still not working properly and sometimes my phone would stop charging.

Liked: The hostel is clean, safe, and convenient. There is a lack of AC but that seems to be a London thing opposed to a site-specific thing. The rooms are small but give enough space since you're basically only there to sleep. A cabinet is provided for you to lock up your things.

Disliked: No air conditioning.

Liked: Cleanliness- stayed in a 4 bed dorm and it was very clean. Had a main lounge area by reception- but not much goes on there, except people doing their own thing. Nice they had a big screen TV so you could watch wimbledon or whatever you wanted with comfy couches.

Disliked: Theres nothing bad to say

18 June 2013 Rebecca would recommend this property

Liked: The rooms were clean and, aside from the standard noises made by other members of the room entering and leaving at night, there was no noise at all!

Disliked: I know this is London, but £30 for one night in a hostel dorm is excessive. Breakfast was £4.50 for tea/coffee, pain au chocolat, cereal and fruit - whilst this may seem generous, it was bog-standard hostel fare not really worth the price, particularly as there're many cafes nearby that do much better breakfast deals.
