Overall our stay was good. The room was tired and well in need of a refurb, which I think is coming soon, however the staff were good and we were given a bigger room than expected which was nice. Good value for London accommodation and would use again.

Mettre du wifi dans les chambres , Les fenêtres se ferment mal dans certaines chambres ,on ne peut pas atteindre le chauffage sans passer sur le lit de quelqu'un pour l'allumer, l'armoire bloque l'accès. Odeur désagréable dans les chambres et salles de bain ,probleme d'aeration, les robinets s'ouvrent et se ferment mal,pas envie de se doucher dedans ,seul, le prix m'a fait choisir cet établissement ,cuisine plutôt sale ,a. cause des voyageurs qui ne nettoient pas derrière eux ,

Hi there, Thank you for your feedback, unfortunately we don't have wifi in the rooms hopefully in future we currently have free wifi ground floor and mezzanine. For safety reasons we need to restrict the opening of the windows as we have young people staying with us but at moment we are having a refurbishment at the hostel finishing by the end of March which will be including replacement of some new window locks, new showers, toilets, carpets and flooring. We do have a system in place to look on standards of guests facilities including the self catering kitchen but we will pass on your comments to the housekeeping department.
