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.

Exceptional 10.0
Friendly staff, clean rooms/toilets/showers - under bed storage (useful to take a padlock with you, although you can but them there) Great atmosphere! Nice food, would have liked more variety in food for breakfast,but was still great with pastries,fruit,toast,muffins etc. Would stay there again, and recommend to anyone!!
