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.

Liked: Only wanted a bed for two nighs which it gave but in a smakk room with three trunk beds (think double beds but with three beds) and not much else in a room. Showers are a trek to get to as well. They let too many school groups in, forty primary school kids were there this weekend.It is cheap though, the location is good and the stafff are brilliant so it dpends what you're looking for.

Liked: Extremely good location, perfect for travelling into central London and back. Facilities were clean and presentable. The only downsize was the size of the bunks however it is understandable considering the need to fit as many bunks in the room as possible.An advantage would be to have lockers for each bunk to be in the rooms.

Customer review

02 June 2009

Liked: Stayed for 1 night only on the 2nd level, beds were small, lots of noise as building is old and walls are thin, could hear people walking around on the 3rd floor as the ceiling creaks in many places and lots of drunk people playing up in the corridors until 2am or so, the fire alarm went off during the night, the showers are in the basement under street level, they are very tiny and no where to hang your items, overall got hardly any sleep, the only good thing is the location

Customer review

01 June 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The rooms became awfully warm during the nights because the windows only open a small way. Air quality was really really bad inside the rooms because of that. This made the whole experience a disaster, I guess during winter it is not that bad. They charge another 1,50 pound/night for the lockers. The staff was very friendly and did everything to help. There is a 24 hour supermarket and a tube station 100 m from the hostel. perfect! Breakfast was weak but you could eat as miuch as you want. So very good! thanks for that!
