No kitchen and rooms/showers could be cleaned more. Tiny room for 12 people. Nice staff. Nice enough. Great location 6 min walk to Westminster bridge! Great food and beer at 10% off. Cereal, toast, tea and coffee breakfast.

Friendly staff, comfortable rooms. There is a pub downstairs that is discounted for those staying in the hostel, and functional bathrooms/showers. If you don't mind triple bunk beds, I'd highly recommend. The location is walking distance from major attractions or the train station

I had such a great time at this hostel! The rooms were large and clean with plenty of outlets. There is always someone at reception to help you. There is a pub right downstairs with a good selection of food and plenty of beer and gin. The tube station is just a block away which is very convenient, however you...

The atmosphere is very good, you con spend your free time at the end of the day at the pub, which actually is a very good one. The prices are like the other pubs in the area. The cleaning is not so accurate, but when we told them that there was a problem with the shower they came immediately. The...

Although the pub is really nice, the staff very friendly, and the location amazing (5 min walk from Westminster), these are rooms above a bar, not an actual hostel. - 3 levels bunk beds that don't allow you to sit up, - no actual space in the bed room to store your luggage (or do anything else really), so you...

I've been there for 2 days and i can say that everything was good. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean, not even a grain of dust! The showers had the perfect temperature in 10 seconds. I suggest this hostel if you are visiting for the first time or not, London because it is in the center of...

This review is in comparison with hostels from other cities. I mention this since I've heard the hostal experience in London in general is quite average. I arrived late, but had no problem checking. Daniel was more than helpful in suggesting traveling tips and assisting me with the door's code when I had issues entering it. The kitchen and bar...
