It is an absolutely good hostel, especially you can cook yourself in the kitchen facilities. But though it is little bit far from the city center, it is perfect location to approach from the airport. The coach stop is very near from the hostel. The building is a bit old, but it is also a good experience to stay in a exotic one.

Very nice cadre, friendly staff

A great stay overall. The first room was quite... intimate, but my second room was wonderful

Aamupalasta lähtien loistomesta. Työntekijöitä ympäri kellon ja helposti saa ajan kulumaan pubipuolellakin, jos haluaa hengähtää.

Täydellinen majoitusvaihtoehto matkailijoille, joilla on pieni budjetti ja joita ei haittaa toisten yöpyjien aiheuttama pieni kolina! Suosittelen

SATUMAA

Täydellinen ulkoasu, Täydellinen sijainti (metrot, bussit kulkee ihan hostellin vierestä minne tahansa! Metrolla 10min Oxford streetille) Loistava aamupala (samassa tilassa "ravintola" ja baari) Pyyhkeet ei kuulu hintaan, voi ostaa respasta 3punnalla. Kokemus 11/10

Perfekt für Durchreisende

Pros: Das die Betten Vorhänge und eine Nachttischlampe hatten.
Cons: das Putzmittel roch sehr stark und war etwas unangenehem...
Location: Es befindet sich in ca. 20min (U-Bahn) von der Stadtmitte. Es hat mehrere kleine Läden, wie z.b Starbucks, Boots, M und S.
Meine Schwester und ich waren für 4 Tage in London um zu Shoppen und die Zeit gemeinsam zu geniessen. Die Entfernung zur City war daher recht angenehm. Das Hotel ist gut erschlossen und die Möglichkeit noch kleine Einkäufe zu tun ist in sehr naher Umgebung möglich. Das Hotel war gemütlich und durch das Ambiente einladend. Die Zimmergrösse war für uns etwas störend, denn zu 12 auf engem Raum wurde es manchmal ungemütlich. Das jedes Bett einen Vorgang und Nachttischlampe hat fand ich jedoch toll, etwas Privatsphäre. Das Badezimmer, welches zwar mit Duschen ausgestattet ist, aber nur mit jeweils 1 bis 2 Lavabos, war auch etwas ungünstig morgens und abends. Am Morgen konnten wir eine gemütliches Frühstück geniessen, welches ausreichend war und dem Preis entsprechend.

Hôtel sympathique dans un très beau cadre

Pros: La cour-jardin pour fumer, le bar, le cadre, le petit déjeuner
Cons: le confort des chambres, l'isolation (ou les règles de savoir-vivre... cause perdue, mais il faut savoir que l'ambiance est assez jeune et animée).
Location: Pas vu grand-chose ds le quartier. L'intérêt principal c'est la Jubilee Line à 200 m et le bus 31 direct pour Camden.
L'hôtel est un mix entre auberge de jeunesse (dortoirs, douches et toilettes communes, groupes de jeunes volontiers bruyants, mais aussi bar animé et ambiance sympathique) et hôtel plus traditionnel (nous étions dans une "Ensuite room" c'est-à-dire disposant d'une petite douche et de wc dans la chambre), au confort assez rudimentaire (chambre très petite à lits superposés, même pas une patère ou un cintre pour suspendre des affaires, lits assez petits (+ d'1m80 s'abstenir!), mais le tout dans un cadre assez magnifique (grande villa ancienne tout en boiseries et hauts plafonds, escalier monumental, grand salon à hautes fenêtres très accueillant. J'ai été bluffée par l'efficacité du personnel chargé du ménage: ménage fait et serviettes de toilettes changées tous les jours, douches et toilettes rutilantes en dépit (ou à cause) de la négligence de certains jeunes résidents (qui laissent les serviettes et même des slips traîner par terre, ne tirent pas la chasse...). Gênée par le bruit (fête privée dans le dortoir en dessous de ma chambre deux soirs de suite) mais je me suis plainte à la réception (il était 1h du matin) qui a fait cesser le bruit rapidement.

Kein Warmes Wasser, Gemeinschaftsbad

Ich hatte ein Doppelzimmer mit Bad gebucht. Bekommen haben wir ein einhiges Zimmer mit Stockbetten ohne WC und Dusche. Das Gemeinschaftsbad war in Ordnung aber es gab ständig Probleme mit dem Warmwasser. Früstück mjsste separat gebucht werden, war aber in Buffetform ausreichend.
