Liked: I liked that it was very clean, and the internet service worked very well.

Disliked: I disliked that there were relatively few showers and toilets compared to the number of guests. This wasn't a major issue but was a bit annoying at times.

Liked: Very good accomodation, friendly staff, clean rooms, great location. It is actually an inn; you basically enter a pub, the hostel is just up the stairs. It is very close to Clapham Junction train station and the Clapham area is nice and friendly. I would definitely recommend it for everyone.

Liked: Its very cheap.

Disliked: There arent clearly enough toilets and showers with the result that they are not very clean. I think the upper floor has a lot of rooms, at least one of them can be converted into additional toilets! Or me cleanliness is super important in a hostel, especially with so many people. Unfortunately this does not seem to be regarded as important in the hostel. The hostel attracts all sorts of people as it is quite far out and cheap. Some unpleasantly loud people.

Liked: I've stated at this property before and I'll be staying again, the staff a very helpful and friendly the location is good, 20 minutes by bus to the city centre - London eye! The beds too are some of the cleanest and comfiest I've slept in, in London. Good value for money.

Disliked: The location isn't near many tube stations, so not really giving the opportunity the experience London tube at its best.. Although the chance to do so is a few steps away, but bus stop right outside. Otherwise fabulous!

Family Holiday

06 April 2013

Liked: The bedding was clean, although I did not have a duvet cover on my duvet

Disliked: The staff were really rude and confrontational with a young woman who had been upset by another stayer, the member of staff was quite intimidating. The toilets smelled really bad and the smell came into the bedroom! The music in the bar continued until 2am even though the bar shut at 11am!!! I got NO sleep at all and would have been better sitting in a cafe all night! The "continental breakfast" was a joke as well! Frozen bread and a choice of 2 cereals...wow!
