    great staff! nicely located close to the tube, several buslines and national rail services. great food in the restaurant, you'll get 25% off! could be cleaner, but it serves the purpose of having a place to sleep and not to hang out. Would book again in an instant!

    One of the worst hostels i stayed at throughout my 5 week backpacking trip. There is no ventilation whatsoever in the 15 bed dorm; only a fan to blow. It was like sleeping in a sauna. There is definitely bed bugs because I woke up with literally 50 bites all over my body. Guy next to me had bites all over his body as well (he looked like he lived there though). Not even joking.. wish I can post pictures of my bites. The 2nd night we just left the door propped open trying to let the fan blow "fresh" air in (although I couldn't even sleep anyways because I itched so bad). Wi-fi was terrible. Can't even connect. Breakfast was comparable to other hostels.. just toast and cereal. At least they had cold milk. Bar, pool lounge, and chill area only good thing about the place. Locker provided but with deposit. 6 minute walk from station. Would not recommend this place unless.

    Staff and position were great. The bedrooms are the problem: significantly too small (mine was for nine and it was about 15 square meters), there was no space for laying my own stuff, the bathroom was less then 2 square meters and blind there was this very strong smell of damp. So, for the ones who are looking for comfortable bedrooms this is the last place where they want to go. Nevertheless, it is very cheap and people were very nice and kind.

    The hostel is amazing and the staff is always there to help you (Rob is the best guy ever). It's right by the Piccadilly line so it is in a very good position since that line will take you pretty much everywhere. The place is also clean and it has a nice common area.
