Liked: Everyone staying in a hostel in a London needs to be aware that the standards are much lower than anywhere else and thus to have more modest expectations. In my twelve-bed dorm on the second floor at least, the triple bunks were much nicer than others that I have slept in in London. The sheets were white and clean, the beds were not too close (one along each wall) and with the window open the room was a comfortable temperature. The common room is not as sociable as that in hostels elsewhere, but it was quite large and better than others I have seen in London. The location is good for London: you can walk to the centre if you are not lazy. Although it could be larger and newer, the shower actually had good strength and temperature.

Disliked: Of the three public computers, one had no monitor or keyboard and one had a keyboard on which only half the letters worked. The only otherwise usable computer did not have the Internet working for about half the time I was there, so I had to pay to use Internet cafes. The receptionists were O.K. but tended to faff around on the computer for a long time before dealing with any waiting guest. There is an annoying rule whereby you cannot leave any food in your dorm, so you have to put it in the fridge (as there are no cupboards available) even if it is not suitable for refrigeration. From 9:00 p.m., the receptionist continually harasses smokers out the front, saying that they cannot smoke there, even though it is a public street and people being there cannot possibly annoy any neighbours that early.

Liked: Close to central London

Disliked: I and two other people in my room had things go missing, I had my towel taken, one guy had his toiletry bag stolen and another his shorts. There are too many beds stuffed in a small room, makes room very hot. Two showers between i assume almost 40 people on a floor.

Liked: Excellent staff and an all round great feel to the hostel. The staff were absolutely incredible, telling us what to do in the area, and were great to have a laugh with. Whilst breakfast was simple, it had everything you needed - a range of cereals and toast. At a great price, I would definitely go back again! P.S. Do the pub crawls they suggest, they were fantastic to say the least!

Disliked: Whilst I found it no issue, it may be good to note that a couple of the toilet doors didn't lock properly... But hey, the door still shuts, and there are still other toilets that work, so it's all A-OK!

Liked: Beds were clean and comfy. Close to bus stop for night buses. Big seating area downstairs. Friendly staff. Easy access into hostel throughout the night. Plug sockets to charge phone by bed.

Disliked: Limited privacy when using sinks to brush teeth etc, lots of people needing to use sinks/showers at the same time as couple of showers out of service, one toilet lock was broken. Light by my bed didn't work and friends plug socket didn't work to charge her phone. Surcharge for paying with card when you check in which I was not aware of.
