Scusate il ritardo della risposta. È stata una bella esperienza, forse qualche ritardo nell’ aggiornamento del sito per i posti letto ( ho sostato un giorno di permanenza in più), ma nel complesso ho trovato gentilezza e accoglienza. Nel mio prossimo viaggio a Londra penso di ritornare al vostro hotel. Gianfranco

I've stayed in a lot of hostels over the years and this was by far my favorite. The service was amazing! They helped me with my luggage, were constantly friendly and had a wonderful attitude. It was a great energy. I would absolutely stay in this hostel again-it was my favorite.
