Ideal hostel for young travelers

This hostel is very cheap, but ideally located and the reception will help you with everything you need.

Excellent standards!

We were impressed by the quality of the hostel, especially the hotel-style bathroom in the room.

The luggage storage and shower facilities in the basement were also really useful when we first arrived before check-in.

If only nothing else

I know it's in Zone 1 of London and that's what I should expect from a place after spending this much amount of money (66 bucks to be specific) - but really.!!????!??!!?!!!!.

No No No way I felt it was worth it - should have tried somewhere else. Good thing is that its on main road, near E&C tube station & connected by buses. But room - too small, almost felt claustrophobic, poor ventilation (windows are locked), no space in bathroom (felt cheated for that) - no soap/towel (c'mon, its a hostel, I know but I booked an ensuite, at least a small soap), very tiny bathroom with a sub-standard shower and no exhaust fan or ventilation. Beds are ok but again, the charging points (for my cell phone) are stuck behind the bed frame. Poor design, just to fit the beds in, & I had no way to charge my phone (upper bed on the bunk). Way too noisy on the main road outside (windows open bcz its summer time)

My recommendation - take it if you have no option.

Friendly, bright, lovely, great location

Wonderful receptionists, helpful, fun, warm.

Lovely place, great buzz, breakfast is lovely. Only thing with the room (I was in a 6 bedroom house) was the two guests who arrived at 2am and spent quite a long time fixing their beds and whispering. I wish there was a cut-off time for arrivals. I was getting up at 6am so the disruption wasn't great. Overall, I highly recommend this hostel. Great transportation links and easy to get anywhere.

OK place to Stay

Rooms were very clean, staff helpful.

Very noisy hostel, although it did quieten just before midnight. Door banging, people talking right in the corridors.

Rooms are very small but clean and functional.

Hostel hostel hostel

Location wise: noisy.

Room was clean, shower was clean (I had taken an ensuite). The room was very small, think of a box and you are there. I am not going to be too harsh, after all, it is a hostel. I only stayed one night (I live in London but just needed to be out of my own flat for one night) and it did the job. Did not experience the canteen.

Fab for money

For the cheap price it's a lovely hostel which does the job perfectly.

Always clean, not a single complaint there, friendly staff, cute room, it's perfect for the price you pay

1st Time Visitor.

This was my 1st experience of this type of accomodation so wasn't sure what to expect.

Seemed to be a well run and organised establishment. I was on the top bunk in a room sleeping 4, along with 3 other people and which along with the linen provided appeared clean and fit for purpose. Breakfast had I chose to eat it consisted of basic cereal, toast,coffee/tea, etc which being part of the deal was ok and seemed more than adequate. Full English available at £5.50, if required, along with other meal choices/snacks throughout the day. For what you might otherwise pay in a private hotel or guesthouse in London, it all seemed good value for money. Not sure where I could find room to criticise if at all on this evidence so overall no complaints, well done.

Terrible place really noisy, cold and draughty with no loo in room this was not made clear

Would never go back it's a glorified hostel for youngsters to rough it not as it is

Portrayed for business people to lay their heads!!!
