Liked: This is my favourite place to stay in London. I've stayed here 3 or 4 times now. I love how welcoming the staff are - they always explain things thoroughly and joke around and are very friendly. I feel at home here, like a proper old fashioned hostel where it was a community. Breakfast is simple but I've always left feeling full and ready for the day, and the staff at breakfast are always attentive and cheerful.

Disliked: Sometimes people leave water on the floor in the bathroom. That is honestly the only problem. It's an endemic hostel thing - it happens in most places.

Liked: The location on Lower Marsh is good; I have always liked that area.The staff was very friendly.

Disliked: 11 double bunk beds squeezed in that (huge) room is too much!This creates an anonymus atmosphere. You don't really get to know your roommates.There are not many toilets and showers.The kitchen is closed from 11 p.m., and so is the pub downstairs. That means there are no common areas open at night.In my opinion this hostel is overrated. (I have tried so far five different hostels in Central London).
