Bianca Sloos thinks…

"Staff is helpful when you ask something. Is something's wrong, they immediately take action. Not to far from Elephant and Castle. Parking over there only costs 15 pound."

Liked: It has a bit of old London charm. The prices were decent.

Disliked: Other than one staff member, everyone else, from reception crew to cleaning crew are extremely prickly and stuck up. Much more worried about getting a job done than actually treating people with respect.

Liked: The hostel is big and in a beautiful building. Close to the centre and metro and bus stations.

Disliked: My room was very very small, only had a beliche and the space to open the door. Even though there were a lot of children and the hostel is suited to families, most of the nights I couldn't sleep at all because of very noisy, sreaming people in the middle of the night.
