I wasn't expecting much - a clean bed to sleep on and decent toilets/showers. My bed appeared clean, but the shower smelled awful for all 4 nights that I was there. Also, the toilet on my end of the 2nd floor was clogged for two nights straight, and no one seemed to care. The room was also extremely hot, and never smelled very pleasant. This isn't a bad hostel to stay at for maybe a night or two. The location is decent, and the staff was overall pretty friendly, though I probably wouldn't return.

Need new pillows on every bed (they all felt like sleeping on cardboard), sanitary containers need to be changed DAILY (they were only changed once during our 5 day stay and in the small cramped spaces.... the smell was overbearing & disgusting), floors never once cleaned in room (the floors were muddy and others often spilled water all over leaving the floor nasty to walk on-even with shoes), and fabric furniture needs to be protected or replaced (saw girl puke on w/ little clean up/sanitation

This was a pleasant hostel that was clean, decent, and well-within the central part of London, thus making attractions and locales much easier to get to. Over all a very pleasant, well-run and practical place to stay.
