Liked: Only good thing is the location which is about a minutes walk to the nearest tube station.

Disliked: This hostel is a mess. The washrooms are gross and faulty. I can't imagine they have been refurbished since the 1970's judging by one of the broken sinks. Also, the shower stalls exhumed a very strange and unpleasant smell. As well, the dormitory I stayed in was overly stuffy and the mattresses and sheets didn't appear to be very clean.To make matters worse, the staff there is woeful and doesn't know how to work their own computer system or have much clue as to how to deal with customers. I thought it was really bad when I saw one of the receptionist reply to a woman's concerns about her safety with some rather inane remarks until the next night when I returned and police were sorting out a verbal altercation between another patron and one of the receptionists. It really didn't matter to me who was to blame. This place attracts riff-raff and there's a good reason why; terrible facilities and rude staff (they were never pleasant to anyone for the most part there). The only thing I can't understand is why people come here as the place is terribly expensive beyond the nightly fee. A pound for 15 minutes on a computer/wi-fi usage? Extra fees for locker privileges (no, you can't even bring your own lock here like I did)? I was almost surprised when I didn't have to pay 30p for the toilets. Yes you get free breakfast, but its just corn-flakes, watered down orange juice, and the cheapest toast you can buy in the city. My last hostel in London was not only cheaper than this on a busier weekend (free lockers and wi-fi), but also far cleaner and with a far, far better staff.

Liked: It is in a resonable location, still an hours walk from the city but cheap enough to that pretty impressive. Also the fact that it offers free breakfast; don't believe what says up the top though it's only cornflakes, white bread for toast and margarine and really cheap jam with no fruit in it. For drinks in the morning there is cordial or squash whatever you call it and tea and coffee... apparently the coffee tastes really bad but I don't drink coffee so I don't know.

Disliked: The staff at reception really didn't seem to care and I almost felt like when I spoke to them that it was an intrusion. Also not all of the staff speak English so that can be a bit tricky. Also they only take cash payments which is ridiculous in the 21st century- not a problem for me as I have a UK card but if you only have a foreign card you may have to pay a cash withdrawal fee. The hostel was very unclean... no bed bugs in the bed but they don't change the duvet (or doona or quilt whatever you call it) cover between guests; who knows how long the same cover has been on there, and the toilets were disgusting. Also when I checked out I left one of my bags in the room for my friend who was staying longer than me to collect when he left. However, he called me to say he had to work late and couldn't collect it and so I said 'no problem, I'll just go back and tell them I left a bag in the room'. When I went back, however, the guy at reception tried to demand that I pay £2 for locker and saying I have 'done this before'. Now, I have stayed at this hostel before but I have never left a bag in my room after check out before. Obviously I refused to pay the locker fee and thankfully after extreme rudeness on his part I was allowed into the room to get my bag back although he banned my name so that I can't stay here again! Not that I would want to after that but I still don't like being treated like a criminal and being lied about in front of my face.
