Liked: You get what you pay for - did the trick for 2 nights, didn't spend much time there.

Disliked: Paying for wifi, awful showers - most broken on the top level + water pressure was abysmal and cold. Too hot in the rooms, needs better ventilation.

Liked: Security each room has an electronic key and you need the key to aldo enter meaning that something like a coded door can't be passed on yo others easily.

Disliked: Prices of extras. For the location the hostel is good value however the wi-fi seemed expensive. I didn't like the atmosphere the hostel Describes the computer facilities as a tv living area however it looks like an internet cafe with a vending machine. I tried to charge my phone which took 25mins to charge 15%. Lack of living area means it's ideal for lone or already formed group of travellers as there's no way of chatting or relaxing. Definitely worth going if you need somewhere to stay for just one night.

Liked: Breakfast is free but very very basic.

Disliked: The staff were rude and unhelpful, they looked at me when I arrived to check in but didn't speak andtthen looked back down again. It wasn't until I said that I wanted to check in that he did it but without speaking to me. He then typed into a calculator how much I owed and when I questioned it he said £10 key deposit. He didn't explain any of the facilities to me such as where I would find the bathrooms, kitchen, etc. Bathrooms are horrible with only a shower curtain, nowhere to put your stuff and no privacy to get dried and dressed. There are no lockers, etc in rooms and you have to pay to use the ones behind reception per day. The kitchen has no utensils or plates or anything in there, you have to get stuff from reception and leave a deposit for the use of them. Also be prepared to walk up a lot of stairs! Worst hostel I've ever stayed in.

Liked: The beds at least had curtains on them in the large dorms for privacy

Disliked: Bathrooms and toilets were really awful, even for cheap hostel standards. Also, the breakfast was really gross to, I didn't even eat there because of how badly it was done.

Liked: It's location to Hyde Park

Disliked: The room wasn't very clean, the showers were rusty and not great, the whole place was very delapidated. Was woken up at 4am by a member of staff to collect a key for a security check. Was right next to a door which kept slamming throughout the night.

Liked: Relatively cheap and good location.

Disliked: Very unclean - single toilet and shower for an entire floor of dorms with 18 people per dorm. Toilet had no cover over the flushing mechanism which made it loud and very unclean (wouldn't dare going in there without shoes!). Shower smelt like urine and was only cold water/spraying all over the ground with nowhere to hang clothes etc. Towel hire was 5 pound per towel (ridiculous!) and internet was 1 pound per minute - luckily there are plenty of coffee shops/pubs offering free wifi. A sign on the wall said they had printing services but turns out they have no printer connected to the computers. Dorms were squishy and had no security - lockers could be rented for 2 pound per night and were located in the reception (a fair way from your dorms). Only 2 power points for 18 people dorm - absolutely impossible when everyone needs to charge things.
