I enjoyed my stay very much. Good atmosphere. There was a safe place to store my bicycle too. The facilities were very clean. I would like to suggest that an oven is very much needed in the self service kitchen as microwave ovens are not appropriate for cooking a proper meal. Also, there are no signs that lead to the hostel unlike many other hostels i have been to. London should be furnishing signs that lead to the hostel. It took me several hours to find the hostel once I made it to London.
