Liked: Location, close to underground station

Disliked: We stayed in a single room with a tiny shower and toilet. Everything was dirty and old (showers, room, common space with the kitchen). During our stay (4 nights) the room has not been cleaned. It was cold in the room during the night. Sound isolation is very bad, perfectly heard what people were talking outside on the street and in the hotel. Breakfast - very modest, we ended up going to nearby pubs. All of this for 120-150 pounds per night. Worst hotel experience we had ever had so far.

Liked: The staff were amazing and friendly, we had a great time getting to know them. We were there on Christmas and they had prepared a Christmas meal for everyone and made us feel right at home. The facilities including the kitchen, outdoor area and the living area are perfect. The only issue was the bathrooms, but definitely worth it for a few nights stay.

Disliked: The bathrooms were a bit small and dirty but apparently are undergoing renovations soon so this may be a non issue

Liked: The location was good. The cleaning staff were good.

Disliked: Check in time was mentioned as 00-23:59 while booking. However when visited the hostel, was told that check in time was incorrectly mentioned and is 3 PM. On insisting was provided a bed in the dorm (lucky that there was an empty bed). Locker wasnt working. At reception the staff spoke mostly in languages other than english amongst themselves .
