Liked: Location was good - it was within walking distance of many major attractions and the bar underneath wasn't too expensive.

Disliked: 3 layer bunk beds were in use - there was almost no headspace. Also, the bar can be quite noisy through the night even if there's not much going on.

Liked: The atmosphere was very welcoming, many guests spent a lot of time in the pub area because of this. The staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly the guy who welcomed me and handled my initial check-in. Free pool after midnight! Half price drink voucher on arrival.

Disliked: Only 2 toilets and showers to accommodate 42 guests, lots of queues in the morning. The pizza's looked great, but the only veggie option was cheese and tomato- boring :(

Liked: Great location (few hudred meters from Lambeth North station), friendly and helpful staff (needed help with locating some Fish&Chips and that guy told me exactly what I should do, where I should go), nice breakfasts, clean environment, non-smoking rooms. It was great experience, pleasure to stay there.

Liked: It's situated just above the Steam Engine pub, which is both very nice and sometimes a little loud. Overall though I'd say it's totally worth it.

Disliked: Occaisional noise at night from the pub and lots of people in the rooms. Which was a great way to meet people, but not always conducive for getting ready in the morning or going to sleep at night.

Liked: Loved that theres a pub on the ground floor! Never had to wait to shower or use the bathroom or anything. Really close to a tube stop as well.

Disliked: Once one of te showers had no hot water and the other had no cold water, but only once. Rooms can be cramped with everyone's luggage everywhere.
