Liked: The location.

Disliked: Room was atrocious, definitely a case of you get what you pay for - in this case £13 for the night, in London, which is very cheap. Travelling as a pair we were allocated beds in a 10-bed dorm, with 6 of the beds already occupied by a large male group. Nothing wrong with this, but the room was a state and smelt awful; the room itself was covered in mould and lacked curtains, meaning the room was pretty light throughout the night (good for people arriving during the early hours, but bad for trying to sleep). The beds were slightly too small (i'm over 6 foot), and the duvets/pillows were bad too, however the linen given to us was clean. We barely slept due to the other people entering singularly from around 2-5am, as well as the hostel's downstairs toilets being directly outside our door. The dorm doors were card-key activated, but didn't actually close properly, meaning they were often left ajar, so didn't leave anything valuable inside while out (lockers were available behind the reception, but weren't offered/suggested so no prices). Would only go back as a group, with a private room, but the mould/general cleanliness would probably put me off and i'd rather spend more elesewhere.

Liked: Fresh bedding provided, WiFi avaliable, great location within London and easy transport links.

Disliked: 2 plug sockets for a room of 10 people! Seemed very lacking. Bedding was freshly laundered but had holes in it. Pillows were disgusting. If you are over 6 foot you cannot fit in the beds! Very uncomfortable night's sleep! The toilets did NOT have a sink anywhere near it! I dread what is all over the door handles. Disgusting.

14 April 2012

Liked: It was well located, but not as close to the tube station as the website led me to believe. 24 hour reception was helpful, it allowed escape as early as possible in the morning

Disliked: It could have been that I was staying on a Saturday night, but I would never recommend this hostel. It felt unsafe, it was unclean, and there was no chance of sleeping, with the snoring, thin walls and steady procession of messy drunkenness throughout the night

Liked: The staff, that was all..

Disliked: It had no fun atmosphere like other hostels, but felt more like an old hospital from the bad lino flooring and the way it was all decorated.. I have stayed in hospitals all around the world, this was by far the worst.. Moudly, cold, old, bad decor, bad everything...It felt like a half way house for drug users, really not much fun at all

Liked: Good location. That is all.

Disliked: EVERYTHING. I don't even know where to begin. No soap at the sinks. Hair all over the floor of the showers. Rumors of bed bugs. No paint on the walls and the staircases are chipping and are 5 different colors. So unattractive.

Liked: Only the location in London which is centrally located

Disliked: Nearly everything, the atmosphere, no one is talking to each other. You pay for everything and they try to charge you for everything. There is no breakfast, for this price it is expensive. The shower on the ground floor where not functional, I had to climb all on the top to get a shower, so It seems there is not enough shower for so many people. The shower by itself is dirty and the hot water has no power at all, si you have to go really against the wall if you want hot water. Because you can't move the shower head.

Liked: It was better than sleeping on the street

Disliked: Horrible. Of course I don't expect frills from a hostel but it was dirty and falling apart, with peeling walls and stairs. Trash on the stairs, beer cans on the windowsill, underwear on the roof outside the window. Thin walls and windows and absolutely no effort made to make it inviting or even clean other than a worker coming in once a day to drag a mop across the floor. Definitely not a good value for money and they overcharged for everything - who charges for WiFi? Large groups stayed right outside the door being very loud until very late hours. Horrible.

Liked: The location is perfect for those who would like to tour London and the neighbourhood area is quite calm. The price per night is reasonable.

Disliked: Facilities provided were less than expected. Toilets are provided at every floor, but I can say that it is not enough especially during peak time. Shower can sometimes be very cold yet very hot. Difficult to adjust it. There was also no toilet paper in the toilet, even in the morning, the time where more people are expected to use the facilities.
