Liked: The beds were clean and very comfortable. Each bed has its own light and charge socket. Also no squeeking! Very pleasant stay.

Disliked: The hostel could do with more social areas and comfy seats to relax in. It was quite busy when I was there and I found it difficult to find somewhere quiet and comfy to relax in and make a few phone calls.

Liked: It was secure, safe and friendly! Lots of opportunities to meet others if you want or just keep to yourself whatever you would prefer. Cooking facilities were available and easy to access. Great atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely come back!

Disliked: Wifi is only available in common areas. As a traveller often you want to use things like Skype and talk to family and friends and I could only do this in the common areas which is often difficult.

Liked: It's location was great - walkable distance to a major train station (Oxford Circus) and shopping. The staff was very welcoming and friendly.

Disliked: The Wi-Fi access. They didn't offer free Wi-Fi. Paid Wi-Fi is only accessible on the lower floors, so not in most of the rooms.

Liked: Have lived in hostels for years all over the world and this is one of the cleanest and most well equipt with facilities i have stayed in. Downside is that the walls must be really thin which makes for broken nights sleeps due to the noise from people passing through the hallways but thats hostel life. Other than this and th overly warm temperature in the kitchen areas i have nothing negative to say about this place. Great location, very clean, friendly helpful staff and great facilitiea. Didnt stay long enough to be able to comment on the atmosphere but the sitting areas near reception are very nice and look like a great place to meet other people.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

09 December 2013 Chiara would recommend this property

Liked: The common spaces and the bedroom were clean and nice. Near every bed there's a plug for everyone and a in the bedroom there was enough space for the luggage, that could be closed with a key. I had the private bathroom in a 4 female dorm, and it was quite nice. As often happens, though, the shower wasn't very comfortable, but the overall impression is excellent. The position is quiet but very central! The services offered were good: there's a big kitchen (well organized) and a clean space to wash the clothes and dry the hair.

Disliked: Showers were not very comfortable, and people were a little bit noisy.
