Liked: The staff was so great! Alex was so helpful and very accommodating. Anything we needed or if they could help us in anyway they did. The rooms with 4 beds were very small but very clean. We also had a very nice bathroom near our room. The location was also awesome! Right by the London Eye and the Westminster area.

Disliked: There's nothing bad to say about this property. It had character and was what I expected for a hostel.
