Liked: Great location - short walk from tube station and a regular bus stops right outside. Beds were comfortable if basic. Always hot water and good pressure in the showers. Secure baggage areas, access to laundry facilities, great wifi (only on ground floor though) and nice lounge area. Breakfast didn't have a lot of variety, but there was as much toast and cereal and tea and coffee as you could possibly want.Sink and mirror in the dorm room was handy.

Disliked: Kitchen was pretty minimal - another hot plate and a few more utensils would make it a bit more useful. Also, a small shelf in the shower cubicle would be good, just somewhere to store things that can't be hung up (like room key cards).

Liked: This is an excellent, excellent hostel. I've stayed at a few hostels in London and this is by far the best one. It's not the cheapest but totally worth it if you can afford to pay a few extra pounds per night! I loved the big, free and easy to use lockers in the room, the many computers that you could use for free, the free wifi that worked even in my room, how inexpensive and easy it was to print, the fact that this hostel has a washing machine, the sink in the room, the lovely staff and most of all how extremely clean it was (this is certainly rare in London hostels).

Disliked: Nothing at all.

Liked: Both the beds and toilet very clean, i live in 4/F the temp is good. 2 independent toilets suits for all roommates, you have to bring your own lock if you want to use lockers in room but thats fine. quite close to Tube station about 5 mins walk, theres local markets near the station too. The food in the bar is lovely and the price is reasonable.

Disliked: there are quite a lot female roommates in my room as i didn't expect, sometimes roommates ate and drunk inside, i think the staff should do some checking. overall no big problems for me.

Liked: Friendly, informal, great facilities for socialising, relaxing and studying.The bar is great fun with a pool table and adjoining outside deck, with good WiFi throughout the building and computers in various areas. The beds are comfortable, staff are excellent and have met many cool people here, this is a very enjoyable place to stay in and great value of course. The area is very nice with many shops open late, with the tube a five minute walk after relaxing in the attractive grounds which are beautifully kept within the secure gated surroundings. Highly recommended indeed.
