Liked: In general all details are very good, and the staff also very good attention.

Disliked: THE ALARM THAT SOUND every time that the door of the room is open... I know is for security, but maybe you should regulate "the time", one wokes up every time somebody goes to the toilet, of the own room or the others rooms...

Liked: The breakfast is the best. Not sure any other hostel can match it now I've been here.. Custom omelettes, pancakes, smoothies plus the usual toast ,cereal, juices etc. Another plus was the bar kitchen so i didn't need to travel if i was desperate for food and of course the bar itself.

Disliked: Bit of rubbish under my bed when I checked in.

15 April 2015 Ingigerdur Osk would recommend this property

Liked: It was full of character, looks like a pub from the outside. Inside, the dining/lounge area is really spacious. The 6-bed dorm we stayed in was very clean, had a balcony and best of all, two seperate shower rooms and a separate bathroom. The girl who greeted us was just the friendliest, nicest person and made us feel very welcome. Will definitely be returning.

Liked: Staff muy amigable y muy buena predisposición para ayudar siempre. Desayuno súper completo y con la opción de pedir panqueques o huevos revueltos. Tenes la opcion de comer de la cocina del bar (muy rico) o llevar tu propia comida y calentarla y guardar en una heladera también. Tenes soft drinks gratis durante todo el día. Free wifi durante 30 mins, y sino también hay un par de computadoras en el bar. Si bien no está en una zona céntrica tenes el bus 24 en la puerta que te acerca al centro de Londres en pocos minutos, y sino caminas un par de cuadras y tenes Pilmico (subte). La habitación de 6 personas con camas muy cómodas, y lockers para guardar tus cosas. A veces se armaban cola para ir a los baños y duchas, pero depende de la hs en la que te levantes. Por suerte nunca esperé. Espero poder volver y hospedarme un día miércoles ya que a la noche hacen noche de Salsa y me lo perdí :P

Disliked: Tal vez el hecho de que hay escaleras un poco angostas, pero el staff te ayuda con lo que necesites.
