27 September 2013 Elena would recommend this property

Liked: For a hostel experience, what I loved the most was the bit of privacy the curtained beds provide :) The location is pretty good also, you have the bus right at the door, especially if you're coming back from the city centre at night, super convenient. Showers are few but really clean and I never realy encountered more than three peple in the bathroom at any given time, never had to wait to shower either.

Disliked: Breakfast was a monotonous but abundant and of good quality, coffe is great though. Getting there from the airports is not complicated but if you're traveling with heavy bags it's a bit of a pain to walk that kilometer from the tube to the hostel (but one can't have everything, right? ;) )
