Liked: Amazing location without the extreme prices you usually get in london and other big cities. Staff were extremely nice and helpful. No curfew and bar downstairs. One of the best hostels I've stayed in anywhere and definitely the best in london. Proper doonas and pillow and don't have to make the bed yourself. Normal bunk beds not the 3 tiered ones you usually find in london. Few luggage storage. Small bathrooms but expected in a hostel and very clean. Overall excellent would return and recommend

Liked: The hostel is connected to a bar, which is a GREAT way to meet other travelers, especially if you're backpacking alone. The bar is priced well, and discounted for people who stay at the hostel. The staff was really helpful, accomodating and friendly. I'd have stayed longer, but couldn't extend b/c they were all booked up

Disliked: If you enjoy your privacy, this place is not for you. the dorm is MASSIVE. Didn't bother me, but keep that in mind if you're the kind of person who this may bother.

Liked: Friendliest staff ever, will offer help & advice without even asking. Make you feel like you're in a friend's house, not in some hostel.We came early in the morning (obviously too early for check in), we were immediately offered breakfast, toilets & a place to keep our luggage until check in time. Then after verifying that we know how to travel inside the city we were sent to explore it with a 'have a good day!'It was fun waking up every morning & going down for breakfast since the atmosphere was so friendly & fun.The place also operates as a bar so you can sit there for a beer.there was a luggage scale which proved to be very useful. shower room in 2nd floor very spacious so you have plenty of space to get dry & put on clothes. Location was great, 2 minutes walk from the Lambeth north tube station (bakerloo line) & 5 minutes from the waterloo tube & train station.

Disliked: common area closes at 23:00.rooms a little small.
