Andrew Ouchtomsky thinks…

"The large shared room was reasonably comfy. Seperate bathrooms and toilets made the stay easy. Great having the bar attached and breakfeast was decent for a stay in London."

Liked: Very good vibe with the pub below it - but was never too noisy. Beds have a cage below them for you to store your bags and be able to lock them. Liked the convenience of washing machines and dryers in the same building and they were relatively cheap. Fairly good location - not too far from London bridge tube station.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Comfortable mattress, pillow and warm duvet. Clean shower even at night.

Disliked: The bunk beds are rickety metal, not stable. Whenever the person above me moved the whole bad was shaking. Pre-used, unclean sheets on my bed, but staff replaced them on request.

Liked: Location, location, location! The borough street is so charming, filled with pubs, not so touristy, and architecture is great! Head to tate on foot from the hostel via market and you will see old warehouses converted and preserved. Also london bridge station is great... dont bother using borough tube station. Breakfast was also great, and healthy too. You will save a lot of money on the morning coffee and meal. also, the hostel has a deal with fabric, and they can put you on a list for a 50 per cent discount.. but be sure to check that with them before 7 o clock .

Disliked: Toilets wouldnt flush most of the time and it is a problem that the hostel should deal with. Also as much as the toilets are cleaned (few times a day as I noticed), shared bathroom and toilets is a thing i hate.

Liked: The staff was very friendly and helpful and all the people staying as well. It was a very nice atmosphere and easy to get in touch with people. We also spend a great night at the bar belonging to the hostel and had lots of fun meeting people from all over the world. The location is perfect, right in the city and with lots of bars and food places around and in walking distance to the southbank and tower bridge. We enjoyed our stay very much!

Disliked: the bathroom fascilities are a bit run down

Liked: Great location. Great to have secure place to leave belongings. Staff helpful and very friendly. Enjoyed the live music in the bar. Breakfast included makes it a real bargain!

Disliked: I am sure the sheets were clean but my pillow and duvet smelt disgusting - stale sweat. The rooms are hot so the bedding needs to be cleaned and aired regularly (or replaced!). (room 21 bed H) The shower I used had a blocked drain and so the water rose up and soaked my shoes and smelt quite bad. I told a cleaner who was around that floor and he had a plunger and said he had reported it lots of times but just had to keep unblocking it himself. Considering how busy the hostel is I think the cleaning is pretty good - however the underlying maintenance and deep cleaning needs to be scheduled to avoid problems that the day to day cleaners cannot control.

Liked: Staff very helpfull and very friendly. They are really happy helping you in anything you need, everyone. They have a microwave oven so you can sometimes, if you want prepare your fast food, you know London is almost expensive to eat, the pound problem hehe. in the roof they have a nice bar, cheap with friendly and nice staff, very nice for a happy hour, they close at middle night, but its ok if you are going to a pub after.

Disliked: The pub crawl offer by the hostel is a trick, is better you spend your 10-15 pounds in a pub or bar, or buying beer on supermarket than going to their pub crawl, believe it. The bathroom is bad, no places to leave your thinks inside the bathroom (shampoo, soup, clothes), and you can't choose the temperature.

Liked: Nice bar attached to the hostel with a dance floor open until 3am. Good beds and atmosphere.

Disliked: While booking with Hostelbookers, a 10% deposit was taken. However, while paying at the hostel, they took the full payment. I realised it only after I got back home and emailed them about it, but got no response.
