Important Information

Hostelbookers Sale
Please note that all sales bookings are final and non-refundable. The property may charge your card in advance for the full amount of your stay. Payment protection is also not available in connection with these bookings. In the event that you cancel your booking the accommodation provider shall be entitled to retain the total outstanding costs of your booking. All rooms that are included in the sale are identified in their room type as [“!!! Sale !!! Non Refundable”].


We require guests under 12 to be booked into private accommodation. If booking a dormitory for a family, please email us before booking to guarantee private placement is available. BOOKINGS OF 10 OR MORE PEOPLE are considered Group Bookings and must be booked with The Group Bookings Department to verify availability for the dates, as well as special Group Rates that may be more or less than those stated for individuals. As Group Bookings require more effort regarding placement, security, processing, etc., we must reserve the right to deny any bookings made for more than 10 people. Please also be aware that your deposit is non-refundable per HostelBookers.com TOS and therefore booking more than 10 people puts your 10% deposit at risk as you will not be refunded.

Liked: It's a straight-forward place. Enough toilets, cute breakfast set up, things like toothbrushes and stuff available to buy cheap. The lounge area is a lot more generous than other hostels I've been. Lots of sofas, tables and plugs.

Disliked: Small dorms, cramped with no big lockers for suitcases. I might have missed something but I ended up having to sleep with my suitcase at the end of my bed.Like any hostel, an undisturbed nights sleep is impossible but people were considerate.

Liked: It is a good place to go if you're spending two-three days sightseeing London. Very handy (near British Museum and Euston station) and the cheapest place around. The staff was really nice and helpful.They offer lockers once you've checked out for 2pound per item. In Euston train station is 9 per item.

Disliked: Next time, I'll take my own pillow or pillow case because although you could see that they had been washed, the appearance was not good and the pillow case was too thin.

Liked: Dormitory was well designed - did not feel as large as it was. Showers hot and plenty available. Good security.

Disliked: The heating was on all through the night in the bedroom so it was too hot to sleep well. I would have liked just a bit more variety in the breakfast - there was only cornflakes and white bread, neither of which I eat - some other cereals and brown bread would have been good.
