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!

Liked: It is a very safe environment, you can leave your things in the kitchen without fear of being stolen. Location is unbeatable, if you are low on budget you can walk practically everywhere, from the London Eye to Camden Town.

Disliked: No free wifi. There could be a small quota for booking, and charge if you need more, because it's so basic for a traveler it is a shame to pay for it!

Liked: I think the location of the hostel is really good, and they offer good promotions to some atractions on the city. Tthe kitchen was fantastic and help us save some money by cooking on it instead of in a restaurant.

Disliked: The staff gave some false informations about buying tickets to an attraction.
