this hostel was nice and clean (staff working all the time keeping building clean) The location was easy to get to underground. Most staff where friendly and helpful. There was a lot of noise from the streets and guests.

Great Location, Clean and Safe!
The room and bathroom/showers was fairly clean. I switched rooms a few times.. the first time the sheets were clean but the other nights the sheets seemed used. You have to always use your key to get into different areas and use the elevator which was good for security. The wifi also kept cutting out. It was pretty quiet, really close to elephant and castle station and about a 40 minute walk to London Eye, Big Ben.. etc. which was nice. The lockers in the room were great and the curtains were good for added privacy especially in the 8 bed dorm. Overall, I am happy I stayed there and I would definitely go back.

Amazing for the price
I was a little concerned about staying in a dormitory as an older person used to privacy but it met my needs at the time. Noise and disruption was bearable but you are dependent on the manners and consideration of other people.Am considering booking again.
