This is one of the best hostel where I have bene in London. The staff was very nice and always available to cope with tour needs. The most inportant think is that they clean bathrooms and rooms every day.

Great work night out, shame about the company... Top pub quiz, that guy deserves a raise. He definitely didn't ask me to write this either. Lots of choice on the bar and the burger selection was second to none. Hot, dirty and loaded fries need to be sampled. Nice pub, nice beer, nice staff. Will be back again. Xx

The staff is very helpful and nice. The bath room is not as dirty as commented above. The bed and pillows are clean and cozy. You can save a lot of money if you are taking bus to city center instead of rail.

It's not clean at all, the showers are very smelly and I don't know where to start with the toilet. Although the matress was fine, the room was very small. Breakfast was good, but the bar it's expensive.

Publove is a really pretty place, and the staff is really really nice and smilling. But unfortunately we had some little troubles during our stay. First, toilets and showers weren't so clean and there was a dirty smell in there. Secondly, beds aren't confortable, we could feel the springs of the mattress. And last trouble, it wasn't staff fault but...

Hi there! Thanks a lot for your review. Our housekeeper team clean the building every morning, but if something is dirty the staff could clean it with any problem as soon as we know. And... we are working about to have ear plugs as well :) Hope see you again! The Crown Team

Nice staff and fantastic showers but very few charging points in the rooms and no common spaces or lounges except the pub down stairs. Overall it is okay for short stays at budget costs. The provision of nice large showers and bathing soap is quite commendable.

The water in showers was Luke warm. The beds were very squeaky and could feel all the springs. The rooms smelt really bad of stale air. The staff were very rude. They packed up the breakfast early and when I asked for some they were very rude and just said you should have come down earlier. They also advertise laundry...

Hi there! Breakfast is served from 7-9, but at 9 the staff start to take off everything, otherwise the bar will be opened when breakfast is still on the tables...
