Very good 8.4 From 477 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Good stay!
The location of the hostel is perfect, right next to the Jubilee line and bus routes to the city center. Stayed in the 10-bed female room and it was perfect. The room is a bit on a smaller side but you have enough space for your belongings under your bed in a locker. Everything was spotless. I love the curtains on the bunk bed which gives you extra privacy. The room can get a bit stuffy during summer. Receptionists weren't very nice. If you want a different bed you have to pay an extra even though you have an injury and can't climb up the bed. If you have a room that's next to a bar it can get a bit noisy. A little bit more coordination at reception would not hurt anyone.

Poor 2.0
The worst night's sleep in London guaranteed
Overall the Hostel was clean & friendly - in particular the (unisex) sink/toilet/shower areas were cleaned regularly. The lounge area was excellent, really comfortable & relatively quiet. Free ear plugs & a free cup of coffee in the morning (downstairs) were a bonus. However my dorm room really stank of body odour & smelly feet (really bad). Also it contained 9 bunk beds all inter-connected within a wooden frame structure (mine was the top middle bunk room 105). As a result, at night if just one of the other 8 guests moved slightly in their bunk, I would feel the vibration directly in mine bed !! The result is that I was consistently woken up pretty much all night long. At the end of my 4 night stay I was so exhausted that I have had to check into a hotel to actually get some sleep!! Furthermore the space in the allocated lockers in the dorm itself was a joke - I couldn't even fit my small cabin bag in it. Instead I had to pay an additional £4 a night to rent a locker in the downstairs basement area. Overall this a good hostel - however I would only recommend it to people who are very deep sleepers and who don't mind the smell of stinky feet all night long.
