The pictures do not show the real quality of the room. Walls were pealing and dirty, floors were not clean, the bathroom facilities were cramped and gross, beds were horribly quality with springs poking you, and the staff was not service oriented or very friendly. Very disappointed in this location. After talking with some people in London we came to find out that our experience is not normal with hostels, most of the time they are better kept. This was pretty bad. Don’t trust the pictures you see in their ads, they aren’t what you will get.
cheap, but great value
Right around the corner from public transport. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Pretty good value.
Rooms and facilities were suffering from either age, or poor design. Sometimes both. Had to spend a lot of time at cafes, because the room did not have an electrical socket for me to charge my phone. Only ventillation in the room was from an open window, exposing you to all kinds of traffic noise throughout the night.
Very friendly, cheerful staff and the location was quiet but not far from the buzz of the city. Great price too!
We did have to wait quite a long time to check in :0(
hostel location is very good, price/performance ratio is excellent.
It was very clean. It was calm, we weren't interrupt by other guests. The bathroom and toilet were always available.
The Internet connection wasn't good.
The Hostel was fair for the price it cost. No fancy stuff - which I didn't expect. Served the purpose!
The sight from the window
Member of staff was pleasant and helpful
The room floor had not been vaccumed this was obvious by the amount of fluff on the carpet
Location, location, location and oh my god, the price was unbeatable. but please read on to see the justification for such a good price!
I first read reviews of this hostel when I was booking it, and thought "it can't possibly be that back!" So I gave it a try. believe everything!! The reviews don't lie! What a dump! Bugs everywhere, the kitchen was filthy! The rooms had stains everywhere! And to make everything even better, the staff is absolutely incompetent! Complete Bollocks! Someone please call pest control!
comfort in the room, dirtiness
You get what you pay for dont be to alarmed if it is not the best hotel in the world be realistic
