Liked: Not my best experience in hostels. Anyway it's fair to mention that we had a couple of problems in our room and the staff was very professional dealing with it. We changed room and things worked out fine on the second night.

Disliked: We had a few problems in our room that were sorted out by changing room. First night was terrible with room temperature. Very hot or very cold if the window was open. After changing room was much better. There's a few big corridors, we were in one end and the toilet was on the other end, not so cool in the middle of the night. In the general this place has the problems of all big places. They start being more like a hotel rather then a hostel. Instead of a cosy and familiar feeling place you'll find a hotel with lots of young people. Anyway, considering my 3 hostel experiences in London i can't say it was negative.

Liked: The breakfast is good, the staff is very friendly and the rooms are very clean. You get everything that you need in London

Disliked: I have stayed here for many times. This is the first time that I didn't feel very safe. I got a room in the basement and everybody can enter from the restaurant to the rooms in the basement without having a card. The sink in my room was blocked.

Liked: Its close to different buses to go to my favourite locations. Also the lockers instead of waredrobes in the rooms are practical.

Disliked: The rooms are really tiny, no chance for 2 people moving around at the same time and it got really hot in the night.. Not sure if males only rooms are bigger as in my room taller, bigger people would have have trouble to fit in the bed..

Liked: The dormitories and the toilets are huge and very confortable. The staff very friendly.

Disliked: The kitchen: it only has a oven and a microwave. Definitly not enough if you want to cook something for your self. The location is easy to reach with the underground during the day, but if you want to stay around late, it's a bit complicated.

Liked: It was really easy to get to with the tube, the staff were really nice, the room was pretty new and we had own own lights and curtains over our beds. there were enough bathrooms/showers for the room, the bar and kitchen was clean and always had lots of people in them so meeting new friends was easy! there is a gate that you have to open with your key card so we felt very safe and there was always a staff member at the desk.

Disliked: the wifi was only available on the first few floors, the kitchen only had one working burner, you had to take the tube to all attractions, we couldn't walk. the showers/bathrooms were a bit small but VERY clean.

Liked: The place is just great, is mainly a hotel with the only difference that you share the room. You have all you might need, and everything is included in the price, no hidden charges.

Disliked: It´s a little bit far away from the city center, but is close enough to an underground station so if you have a daily or weekly pass this won´t be a problem.
