MINE GOKTAS thinks…

"Good location, clean rooms. We shared the room with 6 girls. There was lockers and curtains on each bed which was great. We didn't get disturbed by the lights."

08 November 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Very small and smelly rooms. It is nice to have a bathroom in the dorms though and it is a pity there is nowhere we can cook in the hostel.Change the lights in the rooms. The neon light is just a nightmare. It is like the light there is in the subway - agressive and cold. Otherwise the beds were pretty confortable.

Customer review

28 October 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It was quite a good location and the private rooms are really good. The doorns are really tiny and no elevator for them (floor 1 and 2). Also you must rent a locker. The towel costs 5 pounds and if you want to leave your luggage after checking out for a few hours - they charge you for 2 pounds.

Noelle Collins

18 October 2009 Noelle would recommend this property

Liked: This hostel could be great but the bar area just had no atmosphere and the staff were quite serious. Be sure to read all the information before you book as there is a 15% tax on top of the online price and a £10 deposit each when you arrive (but it's nice to get that back when you leave). Bring a towel or it will be another £5 for one.

Dale Napier

17 October 2009

Liked: Free Wifi and ensuite bathroom are a plus, but the room I stayed in (down in the basement area) had very little ventilation apart from 1 window which happened to be over my bed. Being the middle of Autumn having the window open during the night was impossible. As a result the room was stuffy and smelt like sweat and musky body smells.You pay for what you get.

16 October 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel was as described and a bargain price for its access to central london, if all you need is a place to sleep with basic facilities then this is the place, the breakfast was very minimal ( just a piece of toast and a cup of tea!) but was included in the bargain price so you can't really complain
