Great hostel. Close to three tube stations. Quiet location where the only noise is your snoring roommate.

Technically I suppose this checks all the boxes you're asking for on this survey, but I did not enjoy my stay at this hostel. The biggest issue was that there was only wifi available in the common spaces! They advertise "free wifi", but it isn't available in the rooms, which was a HUGE inconvenience and I felt very mislead. The staff did their jobs, but they were never friendly. I didn't feel like this fit a good hostel vibe at all. People do not socialize in the common spaces. There are not enough social events put on by the hostel. This is not a good hostel to stay in if you are traveling alone.

I really Appreciated the staff, and the attention to fire safety. The lobby was a very comfortable and convenient place to hang out in and use Wi-Fi to organize the day.
