The hostel says it has free lockers, wifi, and a continental breakfast. In reality you have to pay to use the lockers (even if you have a lock with you), the wifi is only in the reception, and breakfast is toast. Floors were sticky, bathrooms were dirty and reception struggled with English. We left very frustrated.

My experience in this hostel was by far worst, compared to other hostels across Europe. The first shock was at the reception, where we found out that they accept cash only. And more shocks followed: 5 pound/towel (we didn't pay, we used our sheets as a towel); 1 pound/hour for WIFI; it turned out that the price on the website...

So I asked my 12 students what they thought about staying here. On average they gave it 7/10. Of course they were in a 15 bed dorm room so that's not too bad. Staff was great, especially Carla. Students liked staff, location and cleanliness, not so much the free breakfast.

Staff in this hostel are just wonderful, reliable and always ready to help a visitor. The 6 men room is just comfortable and private. I would recommend this hostel to anyone looking to see London as all information is readily available at reception and it's facilities are quite good for the price one would have to pay to live in...

This is by far one of the worst hostels I've stayed in. We booked a private triple room for 3 of us. The bedding configuration was a bunk with a double bed below and single on top. Towels were not included, we had to buy them for £5. The room was like a prison cell, we couldn't move around it...
