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).

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.
