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: A lot of different common places like chillout lounge, cinema, rooftop bar and the belushis pub. That creates a cool athmosphere.

Disliked: - Bathrooms and toilets should be cleaner or get a renovation. - The breakfast is "you get what you pay for". There should be more than just 1 toaster for all the people that want to have their breakfast. It seems that they want to bring you to place an breakfast upgrade at the bar for an additional fee.

16 October 2011 Anna would recommend this property

Liked: We tought we booked a 21+ beds room at the Village, but we ended up in a 8 beds room at the female only Oasis hotel. We had a great stay tough. The London Bridge subway station was only a few meters away and it took just a few minutes to Green park. Nice thing with breakfast (even tough we only had it one of the mornings). Towel and sheet was included, which was great! Cheap bar with a nice atmosphere at the Village. Smart thing with boxes under the bed where you could put your stuff.

Disliked: It would have been nice to actually know before the visit, in which of the hostels we were going to stay (even tough it didn't matter for us, but I can imagine that someone who'd booked a 8 beds female room, would not be that happy to stay in the 21+ beds mixed rooms).

Liked: Great location, good breakfast and free wi fi.

Disliked: the bathroom was always dirty and it's probably because they don't have enough bathroom to everybody. It's too many people sleeping at the same floor. And too much street noise. I think that in my room didnt have air conditioner so we had to left the windonw open to not feel so hot but the street was very noise...seriously, you can hear the cars, people screaming, people fighting...they should use the air conditioner so we could let the windonw closed.

Liked: I liked that each bed also has a rolling locking container underneath each bed to lock up things at night or when you don't need them. Overall it was a good experience and I'd go here again - but I'd definitely prefer the all girls location (Oasis) or an all-girls room at the village.

Disliked: The only thing I disliked at the Village was that the womens showers didn't have a partition between the shower area and where you can put your clothes and things and no shelves either. This means some spray may get at your stuff and you have to hang everything or put it on the floor.

Liked: In terms of mass-room hostel, this one still managed to retain a certain amount of humanity, which was cool. The staff weren't robots and were pretty cool & sarcastic, and the morning breakfast (free!) hit the right spot.

Disliked: The WiFi isn't amazing the further up the building you go- I couldn't connect from my room; had to go down to the 'chill-out area' to use it. Also, it doesn't have the charm of a smaller hostel like o'callaghans.

Liked: The location is very good and just a few minutes walk to London Bridge tube station and approximately 10 minutes walk to a famous London Bridge and other attractions (London Dungeon, HMS Belfast, London Tower). The dorm is quite spacious so there is more space for you to move around.

Disliked: None.

Liked: The staff was super friendly! Rooms and amenities consistent to the budget price.

Disliked: It was a pretty expensive cab ride to get there. Try not to sleep by a window, it is super loud at night and even though the windows are closed it was hard to sleep. The breakfast was free but consisted of toast and corn flakes so we ended up having to buy a breakfast anyways.

Liked: It's very close to underground station, both Borough station and London Bridge station. It's in a very nice area in a great location for those who want to explore the city. It have a lot of bar and restaurants near and a supermarket right in front. It have free wireless internet in bar and downstairs in longe area but not in the rooms. Its clean and I had no problems with showers. My room was a bit noisy because of the work that is going on in the street. The staff is very helpful and can help in anything.

Disliked: It doesnt have elevator.

Liked: it is centrally located, the rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable (I was in a 6-bed dorm). The staff were friendly and very helpful.

Disliked: The showers are those push ones, which is fine, except you can't adjust the temperature and I found them way too hot (I didn't actually ask them about this, so there may have been a way to fix it). The internet was expensive, especially given how slow it was, but they did tell me a cheaper place close by (just not as convenient as being in the hostel!)
