The staff were all very friendly it sitting in the room with the reception where everyone worked was much fun because they always had so much fun at work! The rooms and showers were all clean. When I stayed there it was pretty warm and sadly the room always had like 40 degrees. But the location was great, you could basically walk anywhere and it was a nice part of the city, when I walked home at night I felt really save! So if you think about staying there, do it! It's a great hostel :)

The hostel is so great and I really enjoyed my stay here. I wish I could make my reservation earlier and book for more days. The staff here is so friendly and helpful, I left my bluetooth earphone when I checked out early in the morning to catch up my bus, and I thought of it when I want to listen to the music during the bus trip. I called the reception and they helped me find it. When I got back to London to pick up my left luggage, I got my earphone back at the reception.

I liked to Front Desk Workers. They was very kind & helpful. I really had a ball with them. There nothing about Central that I would changed. The old saying If is not broken do not try to fix it. "Leave matters alone". I loved everything about Central Hostel. Mrs. Talanda Robinson. Blessings
