Liked: - Free, reliable wifi in all areas, including my room- Free breakfast- Free linen and towels- Great location within walking distance of the two tube stations, the London Eye, Parliament/Big Ben, Westminster Abbey. I even walked to Buckingham Palace.- Free printing for tickets- Locker in the room but the staff will store your real valuables in their office- Quiet at night- Staff was GREAT! Very helpful and friendly- I checked in after midnight, no problem- No curfew or lockout

Disliked: - My room got very cold but they gave me extra blankets- Squeaky bed- Shower in my shared room was small and not working but there was no problem using the one upstairs.

Liked: IT has a great location, and beds are confortable. Showers are just ok.

Disliked: As it has a bar, it doesnt have a propper common area for people staying at the hostel, to be chill. I've missed that.

Liked: A wonderful hostel in an awesome location. The staff are super helpful and friendly, the bar downstairs is a lot of fun, bed are comfy, rooms are clean and secure, and you get a 15% discount at the bar if you stay at the hostel.
