    Fabulous”

    This was the best stay in London I have ever had and I've stayed in a few hostels. Excellent on all fronts - I love the area so for me the location didn't matter. For some they might prefer a more central location but you compromise on the quality of the hostel in my opinion and what is a tube journey - easy lines and running till after the showtimes.

    Returned late night and found my bed taken!”

    The hostel is good, each 12-bedded room has two individual shower areas and two toilets, there are plenty of both inside the room (remember to bring your own locks) and a number of lockers in the lobby for use after check-out, the restaurant has decent selection of food. However, the hostel is fairly full and they have overallocated people in one room that I ended up having to find another room to sleep in having found no empty bed when I get back one late night.

    Dear Ho, Thank you for leaving such a lovely review about our hostel, it's great to see that we met your expectations. Please accept our apologies regarding the confusion you encounter when checking in into your room, we'll be looking into detail what cause the problem to avoid this things from happening again but sometimes people do tend to change beds in the room which creates problems as they don't let reception know of this changes. Glad our staff managed to resolve the problem efficiently. We hope you had a good time over in London. Best wishes, Wilson Henriques Duty Manager

    Friendly staff, late check-in possible

    I didn't stay for long time, but the bed linnen and bathroom/toilet were all clean (something I find VERY important!). I arrived after midnight, but could still check-in, which I really appreciated. Friendly staff member helped me with my questions about transportation for the next day. I'd go there again. Easy access to the centre of London via public transport.
