Staff has bad attitude but would go again
the breakfast lady is probably the worst person I have come across in my life. One woman behind the desk was incredibly difficult and uncompromising as well. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were related. Otherwise a great place to meet people. Fun stay but don’t expect 10/10 conditions, service. I think turnover is quite frequent, so I’ll go back here next time and hopefully see some kinder staff members. You get what you get for the price. Biggest advantage is how close it is to the underground.

Had amazing experience
Great place to stay. For the price is amazing❤️ Just be wary of window if your bed is near it as people open it and breeze can definitely make you but sick.

Disappointed This Time
I have stayed here multiple times over the last few years and have loved it. It's always been a low key, safe, fairly quiet (it's a hostel after all) convenient place to be, but since I was last here it has turned into a bit of a very noisy, party hostel. Getting to sleep before 1 Am due to the noise from patrons has been frustrating to say the least. I also had an item stolen while doing my laundry. That had never happened before. To be fair, this is the first time I have stayed during the high season, but it has put me off. I will most likely not be returning after my last booking. This makes me a bit sad as this really is a good jumping off point for traveling about the city and a nice, comfortable place.

Good stay!
The location of the hostel is perfect, right next to the Jubilee line and bus routes to the city center. Stayed in the 10-bed female room and it was perfect. The room is a bit on a smaller side but you have enough space for your belongings under your bed in a locker. Everything was spotless. I love the curtains on the bunk bed which gives you extra privacy. The room can get a bit stuffy during summer. Receptionists weren't very nice. If you want a different bed you have to pay an extra even though you have an injury and can't climb up the bed. If you have a room that's next to a bar it can get a bit noisy. A little bit more coordination at reception would not hurt anyone.

Very during summer and some of the occupant not happy to see you on the room light as on 0700 in the morning, very dark at the centre of. The dorm.
