I really enjoyed the curtens around the bed. Although I shared the room with 7 other people I had a bit of privacy. The bed was comfortable and everthing was clean. The hostle has modern furniture and the people who work there were really nice.
The Hostel was beautiful inside, very nice facilities, very comfy beds, nice showers and toilets. Staff was pretty friendly as well.
Location was out of the way in a neighborhood I was unsure of. The wifi was also only available in common areas, which was a bit of downfall for me.
situation +clean hostel +private shower and WC +free wifi +free breakfast +24-hour check in +you can leave laptop or other expensive things on reception
-you cant choose room mates, who can be really impolite sometimes
Our bedding issues were resolved in an understanding manner. The next day. This hostel would be great for a short 1-2 days stay rather than a more lengthy period.
When booking over 3 months ahead my partner and I had asked to share a bunk bed. Upon arrival this was not the case. The showers/bathrooms were not cleaned to an acceptable level. Mearly mopping the dirt around each morning may have contributed to the foul smell that emanated from the drains each morning.
Location near to the bus stop and tube station
Heaters are not working
Hostel looked very fresh and clean, Staff was nice, too. 24h reception
Didn't trust the cage/locker under my bed to keep my things, as everybody could see what you have in there. Also I didn't like the location of this hostel, as area didn't appear very safe for a woman travelling alone
This is a really good option and its difficult to find fault with it. The location is convenient and the historic building has been beautifully and effectively refurbished to serve as a hostel. It's large, very modern and most importantly feels safe. Spotless facilities, comfy bedding, privacy bed curtains & individual lightning, decent showers, free breakfast all make this place a bit of a winner! It feels more of an upmarket boutique hostel rather than a sociable party place, though dorm rooms can of course be noisy with late arrivers/early leavers etc. I didn't see the bar in action and the only downside is maybe it would be difficult for solo travellers to meet others, as the communal areas seemed formal rather than sociable. However, for me, this place served as a perfect base and I would definitely stay again. Booking.com seemed to offer the best rates around.
One of the most well thought hostels, little light next to bed, curtains to not get disturbed by the main light, lots of power sockets, etc
Execution. Wifi? Yes, but not in the rooms (wtf?). Showers? Super modern and great, but with automatic closing doors and no ventilation, they were still like a sauna half an hour after the previous person showered. Sockets? Lots of them, all on the ground plain. So my phone had to stay away from me all night long.
Brilliant place to stay
First, a big shout-out to the staff (especially Kelly and Megan), who were all very patient and helpful. Comfortable, clean bed. Decent breakfast. They offered things I'd neglected to pack, like washer detergent and towels.
Annoying that I had to go down to the lobby to use the (very slow) WiFi. Wishing bathroom cleaning times were a bit more spaced-out; hard to use the shower after some of the people that go in there.
The staffs were really friendly with good knowledge of where to go for food and entertainment.
The continental breakfast was very limited...
-very friendly and helpful staff -everything is super clean -great common area with free wifi -on-site bar -great location
-lack of single & double rooms
bunk bed curtains, free breakfast, hot water, bar prices, light snacks available at bar
light time too short for showering and difficult to get back on. Breakfast nice but both days not enough glasses / cups / cutlery
Greeted by very welcoming happy handsome men ready to help.
The Hostel is very clean, the staff is very kind, the breakfast was alright. There were a bathroom per room, so it is very ideal for a larger group of friends that is able to reserve the whole beds.
When I made my reservation, I put female room, but when I got there, I was put in a mixed room and in my reservation there was nothing stating which type of room I had previously chosen, so I had to stay with the mixed room option. My advice is to call them and confirm the type of room.
Great location, there are bus stops right in front of the hostel and can take you to almost everywhere. Beds are with curtains so that there is some private space, really nice. Shower water is nice
No wifi in the room The basket for luggage is under the bed and is not really convenient
El wifi poco alcanze:(
New-brand hostel. I like the curtains on the bunk-beds that give you privacy. I'd book again for a short stay.
Beds are new but, squeaky and mattress is quite soft.
It was very clean and I really liked the privacy of having curtains round the bed. The beds were a very good size.
The room was too hot - in January! Also several of the beds were empty, but I was allocated a top bunk above someone else, when I could have been given another empty bed.
Really nice decorated, very clean, I liked the curtains on the beds! It's cosy! Only the breakfast wasn't very good... not much choice.. and the bar is closing way to early ! Our roommates were sleeping so i didn't want to wake them but the bar/restaurant was already closed.. but I definitely will stay here again !!! Jana
-great location and transportation -amazing breakfast -absolutely amazing facilities (clean, spacious, nicely decorated) -friendly staff
-No towels -no free adaptors for UK plugs -bad wi-fi in room
E erything didn't want to go
Spacious, comfortable, great location, good price, awesome staff. Curtains around beds for privacy, large lockers, new bathrooms. Garden and bar.
This hostel is easy to find, good geographical situation (just near a bus stop), comfy bed with , nice staff, you feel in security.
Too much people in the bar during the breakfast (I came 30 min before the end of breakfast time). I had to wait in the queue about 15 minutes just to get my bowl of cereals, so crowdy it was!
