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
