Liked: I loved the friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Also loved the location (about 7 mins walk from Pimlico tube station, which is only a few stops from central London) Also really close to Camden and there's a bus stop right outside the hostel. They offer free soft drinks (juice, tea, coffee) all the time, a free breakfast (until 10:30 every day) and free wifi (although the signal wasn't great in the bar area). The dorms are a little cramped but on the plus side there's plenty of plug sockets and plenty of showers. There's no kitchen for those planning a more long term stay but we were only here for the weekend, so it didn't matter to us. For the price and the fact that it's minutes from central London, I'd definitely recommend it.

Disliked: As mentioned above, dorms are a little cramped and there's no kitchen but only minor complaints.

Liked: A pesar de haber tenido problemas con la reserva el staff del hostal nos dió todas las facilidades posibles para acomodarnos y sólo tengo cosas buenas que decir de el. El ambiente es muy agradable, sirven todo tipo de bebidas gratis para que te sientas cómodo. Las habitaciones y lavabos están en muy buenas condiciones y limpios...quedamos muy contentas con nuestra estadía.

Disliked: Un poco desastre con el tema de reservas, hay que confirmar bien antes de hacer una.

Liked: Perfect for what I needed (Needed a quick stay in London before travelling onwards to the airport)Staff were really helpful and the hostel offers a load of really good services and nice extras (which are all free, just as promised on the website)As I was only staying there for a night I obviously didn't get 'the full experience of the hostel' but I chatted to a couple of other people who had been there for a while and they were obviously impressed too.

Liked: This place is absolutely amazing. Very friendly staff, you're offered a drink while you do your check-in and after that you are shown to your room. The rooms are really nice, with pretty spacious lockers in them (you will need your own padlock) and also an interactive screen that lets you browse through the best events going on in London, check the weather and use google maps. Plenty of shared showers and toilets...all nice and clean.Again, really friendly atmosphere downstairs in the Reception area (which is actually a pub haha), always with good music on and plenty of sofas. You also get: Free breakfast, free (good speed) Wi-Fi, free soft drinks all day, free earplugs, free towel and free good times for all :)

Liked: Staff were extremely helpful with bonus breakfast when I arrived early, secure storage of my bags either side of check in/out, advising on transport and helping with how to work the hot water. The location was awesome, 5 minutes to Big Ben, and I highly recommend the fun, cheap and easy Barclays bicycles right outside the door as a great way to see London. The food from the Thai restaurant was good and affordable. I missed the pub party nights, but with the relaxed international vibe I'm sure it's fun. Stay here. Fantastic!

Disliked: Not a single thing. Its awesome :)
