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!

Liked: A little out of Central London but close to Underground Station. The Hostel was clean and security was reassuring.

Disliked: When arrived didn't expect an additional charge for using a debit card. Luckily just had enough cash to avoid it.

Liked: The hostel was in an area that felt safe and relatively quiet. It was easy to get to central London via tube or bus, although the trip took about 20-40 minutes. The hostel was clean, and the bar had a selection of pretty cheap food. There were also self-catering facilities. The staff were around 24 hours a day and were very friendly.

Disliked: We were unlucky enough to share the floor with some very noisy teenagers who talked through the night and kept their doors open. The sound insulation in the rooms was maybe a bit lacking. It was a bit odd to have an en-suite shower and washbasin but no toilet, although the (mixed male-female) toilets were just down the hall. Light sleepers should note that airplanes fly over the area and make some noise, especially if the room windows are open.

Liked: This was the best hostel that I have ever stayed in in London. It felt like staying in a hotel, but with more places to chill out, great, cheap bar food and a really warm and welcoming atmosphere for families, groups and lone travellers.

Liked: Only a ten minute walk to the Underground station! Very convenient, 24 hour staff assistance. We arrived at 2am and there was someone there to check us in and give us keys and everything. Breakfast wasn't anything special, but normal good hostel food. Very clean and well cared for. I would definitely stay there again.

Disliked: The showers were a little inconvenient but by no means unmanageable. The only thing was towels cost about $4. A lot of young high school age people on field trips made it very loud, but it's a hostel after all.
