    Hostel is very clean, toilets are most of the time clean, hand soap and shower gel provided in toilets, there is are hooks to hang clothes in the shower, good smell everywhere, rooms and beds are clearly numbered.

    No steps free access to upstairs rooms. Can't change a reservation made the same day.

    It's closer to the supermarket, Underground and bus station. I will stay there again on my next visit to London.

    How clean it was

    How rude the staff member was checking me in. For someone who's never stayed in a hostel before she really put me off she wasn't welcoming at all.

    This hostel asked me to changer the room for every night as I travelled alone. I reserved 5 nights and slept in 4 different rooms. The suggestion of the staff was either I accept it or ask for a refund. The explication was that as individual traveler, we need to move for the group traveler. So, I packed my luggage every morning and made a new check in every afternoon. What an inconvenience! The Hostel has an astonishing policy and it's totally unfair. By moving the clients in order to fully occupy the room, they make a maximum of benefit.
