Liked: comfy beds secure storage space to lock with your own padlock below bed Cinema room party in the bar downstairs

Disliked: miss a kitchen - but as it's not listed, it's all fine - just another concept of hostel... less the big family living together, more the party crew who pays for food at bar/restaurant

Liked: The Belushi's Bar is a excelllent place to eat, drink and meet people. Teh location is very good. Near the LondonBridge Station, allowing you to go anywhere and return in a easy way.

Disliked: Some of the doors lock (keycard) was not working so the put a lock with a password. We had to memorize the password (notthing really bad, but it is a problem, right?) They moved me for another room after the first day without even telling me that on the moment of checkin. I woke up and saw a paper on the door of my room (and others doors in the way to the reception) with my name and telling me that). I didn't like this at all. And the place need an elevator! Carry the luggage using stairs was not cool.

Liked: Fantastic location right near a metro line with three main lines running to it. Bar was decently priced or you can buy cheap drinks at the super market across the road and dink in the common room. Very easy to meet people in the common room and bar.

Disliked: Showers and toilets could get a little bit dirty but nothing major. Not the greatest food places in walking distance.

Liked: Location was great, close to the Jubilee line. Clean. Bunk beds in the large dorm room were very sturdy, they did not squeak a bit. Showers were close. Secure lockers were excellent. (Remember to brink a small lock).

Disliked: A lot of winding stairs, a bit of a maze a first.

Liked: The staff was friendly, the location was good next to Borough market and London Bridge metro station, Good beds and lockers and good atmosphere at the reception and the Belushi's bar.

Disliked: The building is too old, the ground was too dirty, the WC and showers were unsanitary...Sorry I will discourage all my friends to come there as cleanliness is the most important point in a hostel where 70 persons by hall share the same bathroom... Also power 6 plugs are insufficient for 14 persons in a room...It's a pity that we have to fight to have an available plug to charge our cameras... Even if the price was too low, that's not an argument for me...For the same price, I could have found respectable hostels but St. Christopher's Inn-Village was the only one available during this period...

Liked: hostelin içerisindeki bar eğlenceli, odalar güvenli(ben kilit götürmeyi unuttuğum halde eşyalarımı bıraktım ve hiç kimse dokunmamıştı, tabi değerli eşyalarımı bırakmadım), tek başıma gitmeme rağmen birçok kişiyle tanıştım(ki pek aktif birisi değilimdir)

Disliked: otelin lobisindensonra ilk kapıdan girdiğim anda gelen koku dayanılmazdı, ama koku sadece o bölümde var, bazen çok kalabalık oluyor, chilling room ve barda yer bulmakta zorlanıyorsunuz...

Liked: It was ok - what you'd expect to get for 15 euros a night, nothing more. I've nothing to complain about noise. Though i didn't actually go there to party and went to sleep quite early every night I heard nothing. Might be due to the location of the room though. The breakfast was ok.

Disliked: It wasn't very clean but not that bad anyway. The house is quite old after all. The showers and toilets could've been better! The water wasn't quite hot always and the toilets didn't always flush. Funny thing is that it was really hot in the room though it was December and a window was open almost all the time!
