Amazing place to stay, worth the price!

Stayed for 4 nights and it was totally worth the money! - Stairs - Staff seemed a bit misorganised and tired - There were some problems with my keycard - The room was constantly either too hot or cold (open window) + Really clean and things worked + Nice people and staff, especially a few of the receptionists were super helpful and polite + 24h reception! + Well equipped kitchen + Big and cheap lockers + The common area was big but homey + Surprisingly quiet + Location: There is only a few minutes walk to the underground station, a wide selection of grocery stores and cafes, and a nice park with an cafe (good for brunch!). The British Museum, Oxford Street, Covent Garden and King's Cross station are within a 15-minute walk. The area seemed quite safe, and as an young woman walking alone even in the night, I didn't experience any threatening situations. Would stay again and recommend to almost everyone seeking a cheap place to stay in London. There were flaws, but for 10£/night they weren't remarkable. The only occassions when I wouldn't recommend this place would be if you are a light sleeper (the temperature of the room can be annoying), or have any movement problems (the stairs are really long, there are bunk beds with ladders), but otherwise a perfect place to stay if you're travelling on a budget, and you'll probably make many new friends!

We had to leave

Horrible experience, I have never seen a worst hotel than this one. They really had to make money out of everything we had a locker with us and we had to pay for an electronic one and it was broken. The room was horribly small and the toilets were dirty. We had to make our own bed which was fine with the exception that since it was a 3 bed bunk bed it was impossible to make a bed if you were on the third bed up. We asked to change the room and to pay the difference and they told us that was impossible since we booked with ebookers and when we asked to book for another room it was horribly expensive.Never ever go there. Horrible experience

Das Hostel liegt in einem super District. Das heisst, dass mann mit der Ubahn schnell überall hinkommt. Ein Pub befindet sich bereits eine Minute Gehweg in Nähe. Auch das Einchecken geht sehr schnell und bei Fragen ist das Personal da. Leider ist jedoch das Hostel in desolatem Zustand. Die Badezimmerfugen verdreckt, die Metallbetten rostig, die Badezimmer sehr schmutzig und die Teppiche sehen schlimm aus. Aufgrund der Lage, ist es sehr toll. Werde es aber nicht mehr buchen.

Nicht das Beste aber auch nicht das Schlechteste

Das Hostel ist mit der U-Bahn zu erreichen und liegt in einem ruhigeren Viertel. Das Hostel von aussen sieht sauber und gepflegt aus, was aber im Inneren nicht der Fall ist. In den Zimmern liegt Dreck herum, die Sanitäranlagen stinken. Die kleineren Dorms sind erwas gepflegter und definitiv ihr Gekd wert.
