This was a very affordable hostel and included breakfast and WIFI. The other guests were fun to interact with as was the beer pong. It is what you would expect from a hostel, but could use a few upgrades. The beds don't have curtains, so an eye mask is a necessity! If you're next to the lobby, it will be...

I stayed there 4 nights in an all girls dorm. The location of the hostel is really good - walking distance from big ben and london eye (about 15 minutes) and near a tube (lembeth north-7 minutes) and in a quiet area. It is however a bit difficult to find in the first time. The staff were really nice and...

I never had a good night sleep and the window near my bed did not close very wel. So the room was always cold. There should be a place in the room to keep our belongings like laptops and other valuebles.

The hostel was close (walking distance) to the main attractions and the neighbourhood felt safe. Our room was clean, toilets were kept clean and the showers were ok clean too. Room was very small but just what we needed, good mattresses and fast enough wifi. We got what we paid for and the staff was helpful and nice! Overall very...

The best hostel at I've been! Not so far from Big Been! Even for a hostel, I could have total privacy as the beds had a kind of curtain with zipper to close you in the square of the bed, fantastic! Facilities like wall pugs and others! I high recommend this hostel!

This was the first time I have stayed in a hostel. We had a brilliant welcome and the man behind the desk was very helpful. We were told how to get to our room and so up we went. I had booked a smaller room but we were in one of the largest rooms which could hold 12 people. My...
