    Such a lovely hostel! I’ve been visiting many hostels in London and this was one of the nicest places I’ve been to so far. The staff is very friendly, the building looks amazing and… read more

    The only thing I missed (we had a double room), was a sink in the room itself. The bathroom on our floor only had a sink at the toilets so if these were occupied you didn’t have a sink to use.

    But, a great place to stay if you don’t mind being a bit outside of the city centre!

    Kitchen is very small but they cannot do much about that and the bar/restaurant is a nice area including the beer garden which is nice to chill in.

    Rooms are clean and private whilst bathrooms are very clean.

    Recommend to any traveller staying in London.
