Liked: Location, character, historic London building, clean, functional, quiet inside.

Disliked: Check-in manager was somewhat overbearing with his helpfulness and social engagement. I said I was tired and stressed, and he sort of half understood that.

Liked: The hostel is really in easy walking distance to attractions like Big Ben, Westminster Abby, and The Eye. It's also very close to two undergrounds so getting around is easy. The down stairs of the hostel has an awesome pub with a really great atmosphere. If you're staying you even get a discount which is great. The breakfast served in the morning isn't extensive, but its much better than most places. The room was great. It was small but had everything I needed.

Liked: Its within walking distance to many of London's top sites to see, Staff was awesome, friendly and very informative. always there to help when you needed it. The bar was fun with nice staff and cheap drinks if you're staying at the hostel.

Disliked: The location was right next to train tracks so you could hear that from time to time but not often. First bed i slept on wasn't very comfortable but they gladly let me switch to another. The bar downstairs was a lot of fun to hang out in but if you go to bed early, you can hear the fun happening downstairs while you're in the room.

Liked: It's so easy to get to the hostel from Waterloo.The staff are friendly and helpful. There are plenty of showers and toilets (in comparison to other hostels I've stayed in).The bar area is nice and breakfast is really relaxed. They also give you a flyer to get discounted drinks there plus discounted food at a pub just down the road.They're happy for you to use the facilities (shower, kitchen, bar area) after the time you have to leave your room.

Disliked: The bunk beds are so squeaky which makes for quite a noisy night!The hot water in the showers can be quite temperamental.Could only see 2 plug sockets in our room for 6 people. Would be good if they could provide an adapter with more.

Liked: The staff was extremely helpful, Alex would actually be mad if you didn't let him help you. Location was good and the facilities were regular hostel situations. Little kitchen was nice and everyone hung out in there.

Disliked: It's nothing too fancy, it's a hostel. It more than met my expectations.
