excellent place

by sadams22016 on 21 Jan 2017 (Solo Traveller)

managed to get a last minute booking as i was going to a gig, and needed somewhere to crash for the night, i have been here before but ages ago, the beds are as comfy as ever, as you would expect from a clink hostel, breakfast for me was toast and cereal and tea, and you could help yourself for a saturday night/sunday morning it was very quiet but that could be as it was a january, all in all a great place and of course i will be back

Lovely place, very cheap and you get a lovely comfy bed, place is full of younger people which is cool, has a really quirky atmosphere and close to shops etc. I would definitely stay here again especially for the price

When I entered the dorm the beds looked liked they have not been cleaned (bedding wasn't even folded). There was no cover on my pillow and when I asked for one they told me they did not know where they were (this happened 3days in a row). Common areas such as kitchen and bathroom...

Great option on great location

by Marcos M on 09 Jan 2017 (Solo Traveller)

Great vibe, common areas, breakfast, all on a great location. Rooms are clean, bathrooms are small but seem to be enough for the amount of people on the place. Safe and at walking distance from major train and tube stations.
