Liked: the rate

Disliked: Everyone was very hospitable and welcoming, however, being an older person, I was very uncomfortable with the accomodations. I feel it is more for the college age. I got what I paid for

Liked: Very good location. 10 min to walk to London Eye,Aquarium etc. Inside the hostel wasn't as I was expecting but for this price and in this location is luxus to comparison to other places. Hostel staff were very fiendly and helpful,hospitable and honest. I really enjoyed the time in London :-) I hope that I'll be back there soon!

Disliked: The train noises. However, if you are tired after all day you do not bother with any noises from the outside.
