"A fantastic breakfast and good location on Southwark. The bar area is very nice and with good food and drink specials and there is a separate chill out area to relax as well. Lockers below the beds…"

Liked: A fantastic breakfast and good location on Southwark. The bar area is very nice and with good food and drink specials and there is a separate chill out area to relax as well. Lockers below the beds which is good.

Disliked: Lacking in power points in the rooms which is a common occurrence in many hostels. Not a great experience when my wife is woken up at 1am as she was in the wrong bed and room (not her fault it had been issued to her on check in incorrectly).

Liked: Close to the station. Bed was comfy and not a squeaky old bunk that trembles when you climb up. Sheets clean. The room was nice and big. Bathroom was regularly cleaned too. Not your typical backpackers breakfast of just toast and cereal but also had fresh and dried fruit, juices, yoghurt, ham and cheese.

Disliked: The room did get alot of traffic and street noise. I'd suggest asking for a room not facing onto the main road. The lady checking me in couldn't even say hello, just ignored me completely until she was ready. The other staff were much friendlier.

Liked: Very good location. Staff was nice and facilities were quite decent. Clean for a youth party hostel.

Disliked: With two pubs inside/beside it, it got really loud at night. Wifi was really bad - didn't work at all in the rooms and choppy in the lobby. It was completely down on the last day. In the washrooms, taps didn't have hot water (showers were fine).

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
