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.

Liked: Staff were hard working and very kind

Disliked: Mattresses need replacing, duvets old, mixed dorms a little too cosy for comfort, whole place could use a good scrubbing, omelet cook needs some training in hygienic cooking (hair pinned back, gloves for egg soaked hands)

Liked: Feel very welcome, free drinks which is nice at the end of the day. Staff always helpful and place was always clean. Roommates were all generally quiet and respectful. In a good location which makes it easy to walk or take transit to the major attractions. Tons of options for things to do both at the hostel and away. Nice breakfast with the usual stuff as well as omlettes and smoothies. Good place to stay especially for price.

Disliked: Paying for wifi but more for the inconvenience than price. Even with wifi was cheaper than many places. First bed I was in I could feel the springs but I was moved and actually got a better bottom bunk with a curtain and comfy mattress so no real complaints there.
