Liked: I liked that it was quiet at night, its a 5-10 minute walk from the London eye and waterloo station so its very central. Free breakfast in the morning was sweet, not that I was awake for it very often hahha.

Disliked: The codes you have to remember to get in the doors! Really not a problem though, thats just me.

Liked: Really close to the Westminster and easy to reach (it's a short walk to the Lambeth North underground stop). During the night you can enjoy the friendly atmosphere of the pub. Free wifi and bedclothes. Everyday cleaning. Helpful staff.For the price that you pay it's a really good solution.

Disliked: Small rooms and small bunkbeds: if you're in the one in the middle can be quite hard to get into it cause of the little space! If someone in the room has big suitcases it's almost impossible to move along. Sometimes you have to wait for the toilet/shower because there're just two of them. No space if you want to prepare your own food.
