It could have been so much better.

Pros: LOCATION!!!! Close to everything.
Cons: The whole hostel needs to be renovated. I realize that it is meant to be a one night stay for passing travelers but please. A little goes a long way.
Location: It is really just a 10 minute walk to Big Ben and The London Eye. Not to mention the tube and buses.
I was in a room with 15 beds. Very little room to move around. One toilet for 45 people. 2 showers for 45 people on the same floor except one was broken. I had to rent a towel for my nine day stay. One towel for 9 days. Water cost 1pound but beer was free. Mold in the one usable shower room. The floor smelled musty and the toilet seat was broken. Not to mention that there was a leak.

Do yourself a favor and DO NOT stay here!

My roommate from college and I spend 4 nights here over Christmas which I hate to say put a huge damper on the holidays. The hostel is further from the London Eye than insinuated; it is at least a 20 min walk from Waterloo Station and roughly a 10 min walk from the nearest tube station. We got to our room which was a 15 bed dorm room. It was not properly ventilated and smelled musty. The beds were plasticky and the sheets smelled like bleach. There were only a few bathrooms that were shared for all the guests. Expect to wait in long lines. Further they are not properly cleaned and the floor in constantly wet. When we arrived at our hostel on Christmas after a evening of celebrating, we get to our room and our beds were taken. When I went down to the front desk the man working was un-apologetic for the mistake of overbooking the room and giving our beds to someone else. He gave us beds in another room which happened to be filled with boys who were loud and obnoxious all night. When we got back the last night I realized that my bag had been tampered with and my coat had been stolen, ironically in a room full of boys. I realize that it's risky leaving things in a room but there is not much other choice when they don't offer lockers in the room. We stayed in a Meiniger hostel in Brussels, Belgium and realized later that there is one in London among various other cities in Britain and Europe. I would look into those, you will enjoy yourself much more.

You get what you pay for.

Pros: Low cost
Cons: Lax safety - nobody ever checked that I was who I said I was, doors wouldn't lock properly. Dodgy stains on the sheets and mattresses need addressing.
Location: Handy point for trips into central London, in throwing distance of anywhere important.
Decent location, fairly quite, very cheap.
