Poor wifi, the wifi sucks, keeps disconnecting Poor environment, the hostel stings Poor Kitchen equipment.Most of them are worn out and you don't really want to use it The hostel is above a pub, you can hardly sleep at night and you will be woken up in very early morning. Definitely, truly not recommended

When I stayed here, they did not inform me that their cash machine wasn't working and insisted I pay a full stay, even though I had a night's fare and would be able to get more cash in the morning. They refused to let me in. When I told them that I would be homeless for the night if we...

Missed my train home and needed somewhere to sleep for the night. It's basic but clean and great value for the amount I paid. Had a bar which is always a bonus :) and good service. People were very friendly. Would recommend

This smart but basic hostel offered everything that I was looking for; a private room with a double bed, a clean bathroom and a pub downstairs with a good atmosphere. Easily accessable via the tube and just a quick walk.

Major note - if you are in town for three full, or more, days then you NEED to get the Oyster 7-day card. If you get it with Zones 1-2, you'll have to disembark at Willesden Green and walk for approx. 10-15 minutes depending on your speed. If you get Zones 1-3, you can get off at the reasonably closer...

The staff is nice, but the place smells and it's too far from the centre. I don't recommend staying if you're going to visit London. There's a nice bakery near by though.I actually visited the place in November 2015. Maybe things have improved! But notice, the place is a pub too, so it can be loud at night.

There's a bar with special offers, nice atmosphere, friendly staff, and the place is roasting hot because of the heaters everywhere. All that for a flipping fiver - amazing considering this is London really. Decent budget choice all in all.

I always find it amusing when people claim to have stayed in hostels around the world and then give a bad review because the other guests in the room were noisy or there was hair in the shower.... Anyway, I stayed in a private room due to working night shifts, so I just needed a bed for a couple days....

It's a cheap hostel, the building is from the Victorian era. I've been sleeping there for a week and it's totally worth its price: It's not at the very center of London, but you can get to Baker Street station in a few tube stations, so in my opinion location it's not that bad. There is a really nice pub...
