Good 6.0
Good for quick trips
It was a good place to stay near the central of london especially near the london universities. But other than that nothing special.
Eugene, gb1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Would stay again
The Hostel was quite clean except of some toilets in the bathrooms. Each bed had two USB ports and a separate light, which I found to be very convenient and well thought through. Overall stay was good for the price!

Do not miss this opportunity to save loads!
I simply can not recommend this place enough. So long as you are ok sharing a room with other highly respectful and nice people then you should use this place. I am quite old but have always been made welcome, the place feels very inclusive, and you meet all kinds of lovely travellers here. And it is so cheap! It is a jewel in the heart of London. To reassure you, I have never yet, in the dozen or so times I have stayed here, meet anyone who kept me awake if I needed to go to bed early, or were anything other than respectful of each other's dignity when it came to changing clothes etc. And there are lots of clean and well maintained facilities if you want to change, shower etc in complete privacy. You will be amazed what you can get for a fraction of the price of the grotty hotels in the area, if you are young at heart!

Very good 8.0
Good anyway
Unexpectedly stayed with a friend in Maida Vale and did not make the reservation, sorry. This establishment is known to us and would give a good rating anyway. Thanks.
