Liked: Awesome location, very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and showers/toilets, no hidden fees, probably one of the best hostels I've stayed in, which isn't few, and definitely worth the very low cost.

Disliked: Nothing. Everything was much better than anything you could have expected for that price. Would never stay anywhere else in London again.

Liked: Good, relaxed staff who handle most things with an easy going manner. Clean showers & toilets. Hot radiators to combat England's Freezing February 2013. Pub downstairs was unpretentious and a good way to meet other people at the hostel. Decent sized lockers that required your own padlock. Good WiFi signal provided by 'The Cloud' throughout the hostel & pub. The guests included a lot of friendly guys from all over the World - and even a few females would say hello regularly.

Disliked: Minor niggles: Showers DO run out of hot water at the busiest times. No kitchen to prepare your own food. A microwave OR kettle would help. The pub kitchen ONLY serves a prefabricated pizza - but they are advertising for a sous chef in the window, apparently. No place to sit apart from the pub which has music playing even in the mornings. A common room for hostel guests would be nice as sitting in the rooms is impossible due to squashed bunk beds and zero chairs.

Liked: It was nice to have a bus that goes to the hostel 24hours.

Disliked: On the weekend they have live music. It was nice to listen to the bands, but if you want to sleep before 11:30pm it's nearly impossible on the weekend.

Liked: Very friendly staff, was a little hesitant about staying in a hostel for the first time but the Crown met and exceeded all of my expectations. Clean facility and great atmosphere with the bar downstairs. Not the best part, most populated of London, but yet was in a safe neighborhood that was close to a tube station and a 10-minute trip from center city.

Disliked: Jarrett left no negative feedback.
