Liked: This proprety is very centrally located. However you should also know that because of the size of London you still need to take public transport if you want to see any sights, so you wont be saving any money on that. Its clean and secure.

Disliked: This propety has no atmosphere at all - no common rooms, no kitchen with self-catering facilities just a breakfast room where there arent even plates or cutlery. There is absolutely no place to socialize in this hostel, the only place you can sit is your own bed - I was sitting in the breakfast room all evening hoping to watch telly at least but the remote was nowhere. If you are travelling alone or just simply like meeting people I can assure you this is not the place for you rather look for another hostel. The high price you are paying is simply because of the location - they dont even have free wifi, you have to pay for that separately. Very bad value for the money you are paying.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: Where to start...!Ok location is good, no doubt. Checked into an 8 bed dorm, with a room the size for 4 people, so very cramped, and the 'bathroom' is the size of a small cupboard, you can stand in it but thats it, it's the smallest bathroom ive ever seen for a hostel. Ok, the worst thing about this hostel - the BED BUGS! Ive been so badly bitten that my wrist and ankles are swollen, and ive got bites all over my face, neck, arms and back. I have stayed all over the world and this is the worst for bed bugs, and ive been to all the humid countries in asia and south america, so i know to what to expect, but i actually caught these bugs and they were twice the size of an ant. Clearly this room had not been cleaned/hoover for years - disgusting! I don't normally write reviews but i feel i need to warn other travellers not to stay here, this hostel has ruined my weekend, and probably the next two weeks while these bites clear up.

Liked: Location, friendly staff, breakfast room were good.

Disliked: Shower was very small and hard to get the water temperature right. During our five nights stay, the bins were emptied, but no other cleaning was done. Dirty towels were not replaced except when taken to the front desk. Late night noise made sleeping difficult at times---slamming doors, loud conversations, returning loud revellers...

Liked: Staff very helpful, allowed me to use private showers not to wake up roommates and kept my valuables at the reception for the same reason.

Disliked: A great minus is wifi, available only for a step price, and it didn't even manage to work on my Netbook (not their fault and they refunded me but still)

Liked: Staff were quite sweet, location was v convenient, 24hr access.

Disliked: Far too many beds to a room, tiny bathrooms, no soap, charges for everything inc internet. The locker that was allocated to me was taken by someone else with a padlock on it so I had nowhere secure to leave anything. It felt v cramped and unpleasantly breathless
