Liked: Very friendly staff, the pub downstairs is really cosy and the security for the rooms and personal belongings is good.

Disliked: The bathrooms are rather a challenge but no worse than in many other hostels in the London area.

Liked: The main reason I chose this hostel was because of it's location; it is just a 5 minute walk away from the London Eye. But, as soon as I checked-in I realized that location was just one of it's many perks. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The atmosphere and character of the bar on the first floor was very inviting.

Disliked: Nothing. Would stay again and recommend to all my friends visiting London.

Liked: The staff were amazing and friendly, you felt at home right away. Warm atmosphere, discounts on the bar and the pub at the Horse & Stables was very welcome too.

Disliked: Showers were not great, low water pressure and hard to get hot. Lacklustre bedding.
