Liked: Absoluut een goed hostel om te slapen. Het ligt wel eens waar naast het station wat lawaai geeft, maar persoonlijk heb ik daar geen last van gehad.Ik voelde er mij veilig, ook in de buurt er om heen, vriendelijke mensen, veel dingen die je (gratis) kan krijgen. Zoals handdoeken, ontbijt, wifi. Dit is zeker niet het geval in alle hostels. Prima locatie, dicht bij de tube en de london eye! Top hostel

Liked: The staff is pretty cool. The location is incredible. The city centre is less than 5 minutes away walking. You can leave your stuff at the hostel before your check in time, which is prettty cool. All things considered I would defintely come here again, and reccommend it to all.

Disliked: The noise level at night may be an issue for you. The hostel is located right next to the tube, so the noise may get to you. You get used to it, but some light sleeper may have more difficulty than others. There wasn't any air conditioning in the room, but it was a lovely night.

Liked: Location was unbelievable, and was very cheap for the area.

Disliked: Can't sleep there at all, trains run until 12.30am and start again at 4:30am, constant noise from the street no aircon so you have to open the windows. So hot in the rooms.

Liked: This hostel is located near the London eye, only about a 5 minute walk and close to Waterloo which is on many train lines so is easy to get around. The staff here are really friendly and are willing to help you with any information you need.

Disliked: Just some minor dislikes about the hostel... The hostel is located right next to waterloo station, which makes it very noisy. A train goes past almost every minute as there are many platforms. Being on the 4th floor and on the station side of the building didn't help but ear plugs did a little. There are only small lockers in the room to fit laptop and small items, no luggage lockers. There is only 1 toilet and 1 shower on the 4th floor, which is shared between 18 beds on this floor, there is more located on lower floors, but is a hassle sometimes. The 10 bed dorm is ok size until everyone has their luggage on the floor.
