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. I highly recommend this hostel to anyone staying in London for either a short or long period.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: The reception / bar downstairs is a really inviting area and I loved sitting down there quite regularly while I was staying at the end of a busy day sightseeing. All the staff were helpful and very easy to talk with

Liked: - Staff was very friendly, helpful and humorous!!- Free towels- Free breakfast - Central location- Free wifi

Disliked: - Toilets do not flush properly- The trains from the nearby Waterloo station were very noisy - sleeping with an open window is impossible. With 10 people in a room you must decide between sleep and "the great stink".- 1 mattress of 7 (people) was OK, you could feel every single spring of the other ones though
