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.

Disliked: Mia Melanie left no negative feedback.

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.

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.

Liked: very helpful and friendly stuff!!and truly hostel-character though in heart of London!i really enjoyed!!

Disliked: Overall i really enjoyed!just some feedback for further improvement: slight amendements at wc could let guests have warm water without making a mess within the wc....elavators fully operating but controlling a bit the calling system , could make them more useful rather than just waitining and elevators responding to calls that are no longer in place...

Liked: Good value for the money. Clean and tidy. great location for day and night life as well since there is Night buses going near by. They offer all the facilities, even "beauty room" and loundry.

Disliked: the enviroment is not the gratest for backpacker and traveling alone since there is a lot of small kids, families and also some third age couples, and it makes it difficult to get to meet people. Brakefast is expensive for what they offer, but there is many good places to grab a coffee as you go!
