Liked: Pretty big bathroom, really hot shower.

Disliked: It's too cold always (maybe not in summer). Thin windows in bathroom, thin and poorly closed windows in room. Wifi isn't free, as in other hostels. Poor breakfast.

Liked: It is in a lovely location right on the bank of the river Thames and only a few tube stops or twenty minute walk into the touristy heart of the city. Bedding, towels and lockers are included in the price, not to mention free breakfast!

Disliked: It's a couple of flights of narrow windy stairs up to the top floor, which is fine except when you have a big backpack - make sure you hold onto the wall!Also, as it is quite a popular hostel the showers can get dirty early on in the day (even though they are cleaned regularly), so bring shower shoes.

Liked: I was greated with an unexpected warmth rarely found in London. All the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, the breakfasts had everything you could ask for and the lounge area was inviting and relaxing. If you get a chance to take a Salsa lesson totally give it a go. Thanks guys.

Disliked: Nothing at all

Liked: The atmosphere was relaxed & laid-back, with travelers from all over the world. The staff were polite, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful to guests; they had great spirit of kindness and genuine hospitality. The accomodations and facilities were sufficiently clean and maintained. Breakfast was quite luxurious for a hostel, and the unlimited free juice, tea & coffee was great! Also the location right on the banks of the River Thames is lovely, with Battersea park within easy walking distance. The nightly rate was reasonable and a good value.

Disliked: Stairs up to the rooms were winding and a bit narrow, but I was able to get through with my medium size rucksack ok! Bar/Lounge was a little rowdy and noisy at times, but then again it was Christmas, and the festive atmosphere was comfortable and fun.

Liked: the staff was very friendly and helpful, I felt very safe when coming back to the hostel in the middle of the night, the bus stop directly in front of the hostel

Disliked: the next tube station is a bit far away, but there is a bus stop in front of the hostel!

Liked: First of all the staff! They're all very helpful and have plenty of useful tips for your stay @London. Another aspect is the location next to the river Thames and the perfect possiblities to get to the city center. For example direct infront of the hostel you can take the 24h Busline which will pass by some sights on its way to the city center ;) just for the prize of a normal ride (get yourselft an oystercard!). Furthermore there's a Undergroundstation near the hostel (15min walk) from which you can also move easily around the city.And one of my personal highlight was the fact, that the hostel is a bar which also offers drinks, a life music night and in the mornings you get a free breakfast with everything you need to start the day!Thank you for having me! It definitely won't be the last time for me spending some days @Travel Joy Hostels ;)

Disliked: For me it wasn't a real problem but maybe for some people the place was maybe a little bit untidy (p.e. some hair in the shower, ...) but in my opinion it's not a big deal because this is quite normal if you stay at a hostel with a lot of people staying there.

Liked: Awesome staff. Friendly, chatty, helpful, above and beyond. Free soft drinks (which many times I was offered just by being at reception). Very good free breakky including eggs, pancakes! The bar is full of lounges and friendly backpackers. Excellent place to meet people.

Disliked: Main disadvantage is it's not close to the action. Yes there's a bus stop just outside but it takes 30 min if you're really lucky to start seeing sights. In bad traffic it took me 1.5 hours to come home from Trafalgar Square! The other thing that bugged me is security. The doors (general door and room) have an "enter the code" system. That's fine but they issue you a laminated card with both codes, the hostels address and your room number on it. In theory, anyone who has ever lost a card ....god knows who has it...l found that a bit creepy to think about.
