22 January 2013 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It was very clean and modern with lockers good kitchen nice little restuarant with good prices and also had a bathroom in the room.it is very hard to find a clean and modern hostel thats also warm and a good central location with kitchen and lockers (very hard it seems to find a kitchen)so i was very happy to find this one.

Disliked: the only complaint i would have is the lift is painfully slow to arrive and no wifi available in the rooms only available on the same floor as the bar and restuarant so if you want to skype or watch something its a little too noisy (especially at night) also the other thing is the wifi is a little pricey but there are cafes and pub not too far away where you ca use wifi.

Liked: Well, to start of, at the very first moment we got into the hostel, we were met with a very friendly atmosphere. Secondly, the staff were extremely helpful, wether it was about the rooms or places to party. Really great.

Disliked: The elevator.. Wow, this thing was bugging the crap out me and my co-students. And secondly, they forgot to mention in the reception that we had to bring our passports for several +18 activities, because my VISA card was not enough. Heh. But it was really great, no doubt.

Liked: It was definetly value for money - wasn't very expensive and really good service from the staff. I arrived late at night and had to leave next morning, but from what I saw there was a very good atmosphere, it was safe, breakfast was okay and they helped me charge my phone, when I had forgotten my charger. It is easy to find if you have a map with you - approx 10 min walking north of Oxford Street, nice location.

Liked: location is good, very close to the train staion. The reception staff is very friendly to answer my question and help us to solve the problem.

Disliked: We rent a 4 person room with private toilet but the toilet light is not working. They should have check the room condition before they give away the room. Ask them to fix, as a result they lock the bathroom and leave a note asking us to use the bathroom outside bacause they can't fix it. Quite upset that we have to use the bathroom outside although we should have a private bathroom. At the end, we ask the reception again and they manage to call someone to fix the toilet light on the second day.

As a family with children

Family Holiday

25 November 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The location was great, the restaurant was a fair price and decent food, convenient after a long day of sightseeing

Disliked: The staff, though not openly rude, did not seem to like having families with kids around. Seemed a little annoyed with having to deal with family questions, but happy to talk to the under 30 crowd. The kitchen was a bit small and not grestly equpped. WiFi, all over the building would have been nice The website should have stated more clearly that only minimal linens were provided.
