03 February 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I loved the fact in the hostel that they encouraged you to leave feedback about the hostel on hostel bookers. The bathrooms were cleaned at least 5x per day and were always clean. The staff were extremely friendly and seemed to genuinely enjoy their job. The free breakfast was amazing (coffee, juices, toast, crossiants, cereal and spreads). 24/7 reception and security - never felt insafe. Free unlimited wifi! All in all one of the best hostels I have stayed at.

Disliked: If I am to be really picky - the only negative thing is the distance of the hostel from the tube station. It's probably only 800 m away but in winter and the cold that can feel like a lot longer. There's a great public bus system that drops you right in front of the hostel though.

Liked: I loved that each of the beds had their own curtains and power switches to recharge all my stuff, it was like having your own private little room!! The staff were really friendly and helpful, and knew lots about places to go and visit in London. The bar has cheap drinks and a great place to meet people. Plus there is free internet & wifi!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Backpacking / gap year

17 January 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Many living spaces, quiet TV room, free internet and breakfast, safe and secure, excellent lockers, lift to get bags up and down, lean and modern, excellent bags with no squeaky bunks, places to put personal items at end of bed, nice mirror and basin in rooms, excellent showers.

Disliked: Staff were not overly friendly and were not helpful. Kitchen was awful, only one hotpot in a very small space for all the guests. Only one small fridge for the entire hostel. Kitchen closes between 10:30 and 1:30pm so I was so hungry during my stay and then there is a rush to the tiny kitchen at 1:30pm.

Liked: It's cleaner than lots of London hotels. Actually, it's so clean it's almost not a hostel anymore!

Disliked: The 4-person dormitories are way way way too small. Very uncomfortable, you can hardly move your... er, behind.

Disliked: It was so hot inside the hostel and the rooms (in the middle of winter)! We left the window open 24/7 and slept naked and without blankets mostly, but I guess you couldn't do that when you sleep in a dorm... (we had a twin room)

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.
