"A beautiful building and a gorgeous place to stay - I loved the female only option and the wee curtain giving me privacy and darkness whilst sleeping. Free wifi and free breakfast makes it amazing…"

Liked: The hostel is in a safe neighborhood and the hostel is one of the most secure I've stayed in. The staff were very friendly and were constantly cleaning! The wifi connection was pretty good and there was easy access to laundry and kitchen facilities.

Disliked: Breakfast was pretty lousy-just toast or one croissant or cereal and juice, milk or coffee. The hostel was pretty far from the center of the town, but with an unlimited Oyster card it was a very easy trip.

Liked: Comfortable atmosphere, free breakfast, bar and restaurant facilities, safe lockers with plenty of room and supplied access key, quite, peaceful and all needs catered for.

Disliked: It is a little too far out of London if you want to spend most of your time in London, but nice if you want to be out of the busy city and enjoy your time actually in your hostel rather than spending all your time in the city centre.

Liked: Ambience is good! It looked more like a budget hotel than a hostel cos of the cleanliness of the room, the efficiency of the staff and the clean toilets. Breakfast consisted of toasts, croissant, fruit juice and coffee. Really worth the money! :)

Disliked: The location is a bit far from Central London, so will need to spend some time travelling.

Liked: It's a very safe hostel, with friendly staff

Disliked: The rooms were extremely warm during the night, making it hard to fall asleep, even when you didn't use a blanket. Also, don't forget to bring your earplugs, you can hear everything that is going on in the hallway, including every door that electronically opens and closes.

Liked: Very clean. Good character in dining area but lacked atmosphere... maybe cause it was quiet? Loved the free continental breakfast.

Disliked: Noisy lift machine equipment and hand dryer in communal bathroom meant we kept getting woken through the night (room 300). Recommend asking for room away from lift area. Would be good if hostel put paper towels in bathrooms so people don't get woken up.
