Liked: The atmosphere was great and it was a great location! Close to a tube station and the Waterloo Main station. They have a 24 hour reception, which great for us because our flight got into the Stansted airport late at night.

Liked: Very nice atmosphere, esp being in the same building as a pub. Staff was very friendly.

Disliked: Checkin time was 2pm - thats really late. Should be moved up to 12pm. Several people including me had to wait for 2-3 hrs to check in.

Liked: Great location, walking distance from many sights. Friendly staf. Clean bathrooms. Included breakfast was nice.

Disliked: For a few nights it is a fine hostel, but i wouldn't recommend it if you are staying longer. The room was very small (4 triple bunk beds with not much walking space) and lockers were outside the room. No guest kitchen.

Liked: Well run,clean and easy to find. Simple breakfast well laid out on the bar.with choice of cereals, brown or white bread, toaster for those who wanted toast and various spreads. Hot and cold drinks. A pleasant place to stay and good value.

Disliked: Be aware that there are three tier bunks. There is little head room between bunks. Top bunks give best space if one can negotiate the ladder.I was pleased to have a bottom bunk but would have liked more headroom. The bunks were made up with fresh white bedding that looked inviting.The dorm did not feel cramped.

Liked: From the location to the free breakfast to the pub downstairs, this smallish hostel is great. Value for money, in London even!! The beds were super comfy, the people were great. Deffo recommend!!

Disliked: Showers are a tad too hot (but not horrible). Wouldn't have minded a self serve kitchen if on a longer stay.

Liked: The English inn or pub ambience, the friendliness and helpfulness of the members of staff, hostel's cleanliness level, and the safety and security.

Disliked: The pizza for GBP 7.95 is not worth its quality and not generously topped with proper ingredients!
