Alison Healy

05 April 2010 Alison would recommend this property

Liked: Dave, Tony, Nathan and Matt were all lovely and made my first week in London much more enjoyable. Beds were comfy and kitchen was handy. Must say though, the best thing was the location!! You can walk anywhere! A stone's throw from Big Ben and the London Eye.They were refurbishing the bar downstairs so i can't wait to come back and see the finished result. A great place to stay in London.

04 April 2010

Liked: It was really close to the attractions' area, but that was the ONE and ONLY advantage! Dirty, small , no fresh air inside the rooms, no people available in the reception area in order to solve problems or answer questions! 30 Euros per a night is really too much for such a situation!

Liked: Dave was incredibly helpful and polite. Made us feel very welcome and that nothing was too much of a problem. Travelling with kids can be tiring but Dave made sure that the kids were happy ie kids tv in the morning. Location awesome close to most things, though close to traffic and trains- very quiet at night

Shelley Lowe

31 March 2010 Shelley would recommend this property

Liked: The staff were great. Very friendly and helpful. My husband and I unexpectedly had to stay an extra night due to a flight delay and they were booked up, but the guy who checked us in took pity on us and gave us his room and knocked 10 pounds of the price! It is in a decent location, well within walking distance of a lot of the sights. However, it feels a bit cramped. It is in an old building and there is just not a lot of extra space. The kitchen was terribly under equipped: no plates or cups and no sharp knives. And the kitchen was constantly dirty, but that could be more the fault of the other guests.

Disliked: Shelley left no negative feedback.

25 March 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: A really fun place in a great part of London. Not the cheapest hostel in the city, but well worth the price. The bar downstairs is actually decent and lively, not like a lot of hostels in the area that claim to have atmosphere. The people who come here are social, and the staff is kind and helpful.

Liked: ostello molto carino sia per le camerate che per il pub, pulito e accogliente.. i letti sono comodi, e le camere ben insonorizzate (non si sentono rumori ne dal pub al piano terra ne dalla ferrovia che passa vicino).. i proprietari sono molto disponibili e cordiali..molto consigliato anche per la posizione, in meno di 5 minuti a piedi raggiungi il Big Ben! se torno a Londra ci faccio ancora un pensierino!
