8.2ExcellentExpand details
All in all this hostel is a nice and cheap place to stay in London. But in my opinion: The rooms are a little too small, not enough place for the luggage and in the rooms should be possibilities to place things upon, e.g. chairs. And in the whole hostel were no mirrors... perhaps because it just opened, when I was there.

Due to the lay out of the building, guests in wheel chairs have a separate entrance into the hostel. This entrance is located down the left side of the building, along Great Percy street, opposite the Boris bikes. This is the second door on the side of the building. There is a small buzzer that guests need to press then a member of staff will come and help you in. In the hostel, we have an elevator which goes to all floors apart from our girl’s only section of the building.
