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

Liked: They had a self catering kitchen, with oven, and one hotplate. which is more than some. Showers are a good size, and plenty of them. The Bike Shed is awesome, if you like motorbikes. curtains on beds are good, the under bed lockers are useful.

Disliked: The beds at 6 foot long so if you are this height or taller (I am 6'5'') then you will not fit. The self catering kitchen is small and very busy at meal times and it gets locked at 11pm, the fridge is tiny for the no. of beds only one (very good) hot plate and no sharp knives. The Wifi cuts in and out very hard to voip/skype unless you are planing on doing it when everyone else is asleep.

Liked: Breakfast was really well arranged, dinner was nice, the rooms were tidy and clean and the bathrooms as well. Employees were friendly.

Disliked: The rooms have very thin walls and unfortunatly we had some French scholars in the same hallway, so we could not sleep from the noise the first night. Not all employees are fluent in English, so at times it was hard to make ourselves clear. The beds are on the hard side, and so were the pillows. The showers are nice, but when you're trying to get a shower in the morning, you'll probably only have luke warm water, because the boiler can't keep up. Did not really bothered me though.

Disliked: The fact that we had booked a double room, but on arrival finding out that we had been allocated a tiny twin room with a bunkbed. Not exactly the relaxing weekend we had in mind.....

Liked: Thanks for a great stay :) Maybe I bring my family next time :)

Disliked: It would be nice if you had a more enviromently profil, as recycling place, also composting. It would make you better. Maybe you should check out some more environment than chlorid for cleaning? Organic food Eco sertificate would make you even more attracktive. Make a difference :)

Liked: Not my best experience in hostels. Anyway it's fair to mention that we had a couple of problems in our room and the staff was very professional dealing with it. We changed room and things worked out fine on the second night.

Disliked: We had a few problems in our room that were sorted out by changing room. First night was terrible with room temperature. Very hot or very cold if the window was open. After changing room was much better. There's a few big corridors, we were in one end and the toilet was on the other end, not so cool in the middle of the night. In the general this place has the problems of all big places. They start being more like a hotel rather then a hostel. Instead of a cosy and familiar feeling place you'll find a hotel with lots of young people. Anyway, considering my 3 hostel experiences in London i can't say it was negative.

Liked: The breakfast is good, the staff is very friendly and the rooms are very clean. You get everything that you need in London

Disliked: I have stayed here for many times. This is the first time that I didn't feel very safe. I got a room in the basement and everybody can enter from the restaurant to the rooms in the basement without having a card. The sink in my room was blocked.

Liked: Its close to different buses to go to my favourite locations. Also the lockers instead of waredrobes in the rooms are practical.

Disliked: The rooms are really tiny, no chance for 2 people moving around at the same time and it got really hot in the night.. Not sure if males only rooms are bigger as in my room taller, bigger people would have have trouble to fit in the bed..

Liked: The dormitories and the toilets are huge and very confortable. The staff very friendly.

Disliked: The kitchen: it only has a oven and a microwave. Definitly not enough if you want to cook something for your self. The location is easy to reach with the underground during the day, but if you want to stay around late, it's a bit complicated.
