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

Liked: Beds were fine enough, just about enough space in the room for everyone. Never went cause i was a bit ill but the bar looked buzzing especially on the Friday night. So near London Bridge which is a fine location. Was a shower free whenever i wanted. Room was quiet enough. Staff were sound. So generally fine

Disliked: only 2 plugs per 10 folk in a room is just not enough
