Liked: The staff is friendly and very helpful. Lots of bath rooms and toilets so there's no worry for have to Q up for a shower or "business" :P. The location is very near to the tube station and big ben tower, very nice indeed. However, there's a railway beside the hostel block, so would be quite noisy all day long. For those who cant stand for noisiness please bring along an ear plug with you. Overall, it's a nice hostel and will stay again.
