Nice staff and facilities, but bad night sleep

Posted Mar 24, 2014
Overall, the staff and facilities were good for a backpackers. Reception staff were friendly, there were lots of power points in the lobby to charge electronics, bathrooms were clean. Good location too. I didn't want the crowding and noise of a regular dormitory so I paid extra for a 'sanctuary' room (smaller, women-only room). However, I need not have bothered. I could have paid half the price to stay in a regular dormitory and the experience would have been the same. I had the worst night sleep in a long time. I was in a room with 7 other women, sleeping on the top of a shaky bunk bed. The room let in a lot of light and the noise from the street was relentless. The other guests were coming and going at all hours in the night, switching the light on and talking loudly (though of course this is not the accommodation's fault). I wish I'd forked out the money for a private room.

Pros: The location was very good and security was good.
Cons: Cleanliness.
Location: Free tours leave from just a block away. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and Hyde Park is very close as well.
This is like staying in a dorm of college drop outs... It's loud and not well kept up. I heard the music from the bar all night. There were things in the room from who-knows-who from long before any of us had been there and they just remained there throughout the trip. Not once, in the 6 nights that I spent there, did the hand soap dispensers in the bathroom have soap, despite having mentioned it to cleaning staff and desk staff.

Worst place ever

Posted Nov 19, 2013
This place was one of the worst place we have stayed! Rooms looked dirty and hotel staff didn't look very happy to be there! Lift was broken on the first day we arrived leaving us carrying our bags up the stairwell! First night only slept for about 4 hours as a massive party was happening on the others rooms! Would not recommend to stay there!

Pros: The people in it.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Good location, we walked everywhere we went. Scary canarys is right next door which is a good place to start your night out
We were only staying for 5 nights. we got put in a 6 bed dorm with three other people. thankfully we got nice room mates which made the experience better. It was still a good hostel for the money we paid and I would definately go back. it was in a good location, cleaner than most hostels, good wifi and the toilets could have been alot worse..
