Important Information

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.

Eva Schram

04 August 2009 Eva would recommend this property

Liked: Very good location, easy access to Underground and some night buses that stop nearby. Not a good place to meet people though, since there are mostly groups there. The beds were good, but small. The curtains made it a little hot, but you had more privacy.

Disliked: Eva left no negative feedback.

27 July 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Excellent location, have stayed in a few hostels and this was one of the better ones i have stayed in, nothing fancy but somewhere safe and secure to lie your head at night after a day of seeing the sights. Very clean, we were on the top floor which was quite a trek but we didnt mind. Location was excellent!
