Liked: Free towel and earplugs (which I needed), nice staff who were helpful, free breakfast, close to two tubes (both on Bakerloo line), buses and within walking distance of South Bank. Little shops nearby were good, a post office, laundromat, etc. Good showers

Disliked: I ended up in a 16 bed dorm which I didn't think I booked, it wasn't very clean, pretty loud outside, not the nicest area down around Waterloo. Hard to find staff when the bar wasn't open (after midnight and weekends), tricky to check in on the weekend when my phone died, had to find a payphone to phone someone to get let into the hostel.


The property's response is

it is harder to find staff after midnight, as we do not have a 24 hour reception. this is clearly stated
on Hostelbookers. we do however have the manager living on site who is always on call at night either by phone or the doorbell which rings in his bed room.

Liked: The manager, Alex, was very welcoming and helpful.

Disliked: Broken lock on locker. Worst pillow I've ever had (I had to use a towel as a pillow instead). The hostel is right beside a rail bridge.
