The property's response is

Thanks so much for the review! We're so glad you enjoyed our central location, this is something that's always nice to hear ;) As for the moving rooms, unfortunately at times this situation is unavoidable due to large groups reserving several rooms at a time. As we do understand this is not ideal for any parties involved we do our best to avoid it but at times, it is not possible. We do hope this was not too much of an inconvenience and you still had an enjoyable time in London :)

Liked: Big rooms, good price for Central London, breakfast was fine, staff was pretty good, it's fairly safe

Disliked: Internet is pretty weak anywhere but the chill out room, the entire hostel needs more ventilation or air circulation as the rooms are to hot and the bathrooms/toilets and chill out rooms are like saunas even though it was only around 24 degrees while I stayed there, I feel hostels should have free luggage storage notable you pay for lockers or there luggage rooms

Liked: The rooms were well soundproofed from the road below and the location was great.

Disliked: The facilities such as the bathrooms were really gross. They were unclean and in desperate need of renovation as they were quite old. Some of the staff were very unhelpful and ignored you while they chatted. The luggage storage consisted of a room that had dozens of bags sacked on top of each other as it wasn't big enough for more than five or so bags.

Liked: The location is great, very close to the London Bridge and you have an underground station pretty close. The staff is pretty gentle and they are always there to help you. They have free wi-fi and free breakfast, not very plenty but it is of great quality. Under the bed you have cages were you can put your bags and lock them with your own padlock, beds were comfy, people were nice.

Disliked: The facilities were dirty and the rooms are very noisy

Liked: A lot of young people, two bars with karaoke and other fun things, very friendly staff, nice beds

Disliked: Small and dirty bathrooms, if you're over 5 foot 11 inches you will hit your head on the ceilings in the showers, it doesn't have a lot of windows, i'm allergic to dust so I was sneezing all night, and the wifi only works in common rooms
