Customer review

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.

16 March 2010 Lara would recommend this property

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!

07 March 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: This hostel was in a great location and the owners are so, so friendly. They were incredibly helpful and delightful to talk with. the hostel itself isn't very aesthetically pleasing but everything is cleaned daily and the bedding, though worn, was very clean. If you don't mind staying in a place that's not too pretty, the location is awesome. I would say it's a great price for the location and staff.

Liked: The staff were so friendly and provided us with lots of information on the area and where to get cheap food. The location was great, close to a subway station but also within walking distance to most attractions. The building was old but still in excellent condition.
