"I liked the "bed-curtains" in the 14-bed dorm. So you could go/stay sleeping, while other guests used the light."

26 August 2011 Kevin would recommend this property

Liked: The property was very safe and secure and only guests can gain entrance to the grounds. The atmosphere is great if you are looking for a nice quiet place to stay. It is not a hostel for those looking to be social.

Disliked: The location is pretty far away from central London. While you can take the tube into the city fairly easily it does take a bit of extra time to walk to the station and ride the train. I believe our trip took about 35-40 minutes to get to the main hub on our tube line.

Liked: The hostel was just AMAZING!! staff is so kind, you have a free common kitchen too where you can put your things in the fridge whether you want to cook by yourselves your meals! Then rooms are cute and above all bathrooms are VERY CLEAN, the hostel cleans them 5times a day and whenever I went in the bathroom it was always clean and well-smelling!! ^_^

Disliked: price is just a little bit expensive, but if you find a good offer to book your dorm, then it's OK! :)) and... PS: common kitchen stinks! but is the only flaw of this wonderful hostel!!! RECOMMENDED!

Liked: Friendly staff, good security, clean and comfortable and the best part - each bunk bed has it's own privacy curtain. Amazing!

Disliked: It's not the most central location, but it's fairly well connected and for me the pros outweighed the cons!

Liked: This is a really nice hostel for business type people and for families. It is nice to have the bunk beds to have curtains around each bed to give you privacy and make it dark no matter where.

Disliked: If you are looking for a more youth hostel type feel and meeting people I would NOT recommend staying there. They have a lounge- which is a SILENT lounge--please respect the silence.

Liked: It was a good hostel, everything worked and the bus stop was right in front so it was easy to get around town even if it wasn't near the centre.

Disliked: The breakfast was a bit boring, same things every day. Also, the toilets were right next to the room so it was a bit noisy.

Liked: There was always plenty of very friendly staff around to answer questions/ help out. The hostel is very spacious and they invested in nice, sturdy furniture. Most importantly, it's incredibly clean!

Disliked: It would have been very nice had they put (book)shelves between the beds and pegs on the beds to put away and hang your things. It became pretty hard to walk around with everybody's things strewn everywhere, and there isn't any place to hang you towel to dry if you're in the lower bunk.

Liked: Great hostel! I felt completely safe during my stay and the staff were helpful at all times. Loved that there is a self-catered kitchen too.

Disliked: It *is* a hostel, so don't expect super luxury. But it far surpassed my expectations - well worth the money. I's also not super central London but I would imagine most people will be travelling around London anyway, so it makes no difference being a bit further out on the tube line. Not being in central London also makes you feel a little less vulnerable to theft.

Liked: Great customer service, very relaxed but professional vibe. Very clean, good value for money. Location is fine - on the edge of zone 2, but close by to station.

Disliked: The self catering kitchen is tiny, and some of the stove doesn't work, so it can get crowded in here. Though most people don't cook!
