Liked: It's quite so allow you to take some rest. It's clean and secure. You can find food easily since they have 'restaurant' with reasonable price. There's a big screen to watch TV. All the facilities are very good.

Disliked: The wash basin in the toilet is quite small so sometimes the water falls on the floor and make it wet and slippery.

Liked: Nice and helpful staff, clean and tidy room, well-equipped kitchen (save my live :P) and quite convenient location (few minutes walk from underground, about 15-20 minutes walk to Soho, with supermarkets, cafe and bars nearby)

Disliked: No free wifi, I can accept charged wifi since it seems it is common in European hostels, but the bad thing is it is not really well connected, often lost connection even I used in the instructed area. Toilet in the room may be not very well ventilated or maybe it is the problem of pipes, the toilet sometimes stinky

Liked: it was very clean, the kitchen and bar area is nice and upbeat. The staff where also friendly and happy.

Disliked: I was in a 4 person dorm and the rooms are small, but they are clean and sufficent enough if all your doing is sleeping there anyway, as you can chill out in the other areas of the hostel

Liked: Cleanliness and many socket outlets in the room, good atmosphere, laundry room, hair dryer, everything was good. But cab work on a better presented luggage/locker room.

Disliked: No complimentary breakfast, no free wifi. Hostels in Europe can learn some things from Australian Wake Up Hostel Sydney which is by far the best hostel i've stayed in. TV in room, pantry n laundry facilities every floor, very good brakfast cafe, and a pub underground, complimentary FnB coupons, wifi discounts, towels, 'tourist starter kits' upon check-in. Common room lively atmosphere. .
