Liked: The atmosphere at the pub downstairs was nice.

Disliked: There is no elevator and the stairs are very narrow. There are only two toilets for a three story hostel, these weren't the nicest either.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: 1.Spill of piss in reception. 2. There was not water in half of the toilets 3. No body clean the bathrooms neither trow away the trash 4. Luggage room is next to the street and door is kept open because is next to the trash building 5. Staff is extremely unfriendly 6. YThere is not area to seat and read or use laptops neither for eating or drinking your own food. -They put blind lids on plugs to avoid charging anything. They only tolerate food and drink sold by them and a beer cost close to 5 pounds. Rooms are disorder, smell like shit and other horrible odors. Location is not good because the underground does nor reach it so in order to get there by public transport it is necessary to combine double transport like train+ bus ot underground+bus and transport in London is expensive. Breakfast food is very limited there is not juice neither ham or cheese they have just butter and jelly and corflakes. We did not like this hostel for nothing especially the lady that manage it is very unfriendy and she is like a dictator as if we were in a concentration camp

Liked: The bedding was very clean and so too were the showers. Unfortunately there is an odour in some of th bathrooms due to damp.

Disliked: There should be a communal kitchen with a microwave because the burgers, which are the only things sold, are very expensive.

Liked: Stayed for a night and it was good value. Good location as it was 10min walk from Clapham Junction, the quality of the facilities and the free breakfast was good. Staff were quite helpful. The hostel is not too far from the areas of nightlife in Clapham, either walking or by public transport.

Disliked: Lack of public computers, the dorm was quite hot and sometimes the pub was understaffed.

Liked: The Crown pub had a good atmosphere and the location of the hostel was very convenient in central London.

Disliked: There were no computers to access the internet from, and the staff were unwilling to help us plan a journey through London as we had no wifi devices.
