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.

14 June 2013 Customer would recommend this property

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.
