Liked: Although there wasn't a lot in the immediate area, the location is still fantastic. With the bus stop at the door and the frequency of the bus you could be at Trafalgar Square in 10-12 minutes. The subway is a 10 minute walk as well. It wasn't as clean as I'd like but I think that was a reflection of the clientele rather then the property as it was cleaned thoroughly every day. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was good as well. Everything was very fresh and plentiful. I was surprised at the made to order omelettes. Unlimited non-alcohol drinks was also very nice. Ralphie the dog was a bonus. lol

Disliked: This is also a reflection more of the clientele but this is the kind of clients this property gets; people walking in the room late at night, turning on the lights and having loud conversations. Some nights it was great and others not so much. Might explain the free earplugs which I used a lot. There are no or very few hooks in the showers. I think it's so gross to have to put your towel or clothes on the floor or the back of the toilet but you haven't a choice because there is nowhere else.

Liked: Good wifi, excellent breakfast as it included ommelette. Love the free drinks all day long. It feels like they 'get' travellers and what we need. Great space to hang out downstairs. They offer a fridge & microwave so you can heat food too. Excellent hostel.

Disliked: Only negative comment is the staff seemed 'flat' and not so friendly.

Liked: Really felt looked after, staying here. Loads provided freeall day, coffee, juice, pepsi etc breakfast is standard cereal and toast number, with eggss and sometimes fruit a yoghurt. I like that the behind where you prepare breakfast is a window looking over the thames and battersea power station. Free luggage storage, free wifi in every room, though some a stronger connection than others. Super friendly staff and lockers in every room. Just bring a padlock.

Disliked: The showers could have a little more pressure but the water was always hot.

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.
