Okay area
The area is good, next to the underground and lots of things in the area. Only problem is that part of town closes at midnight so if you want to drink late you have to go to another area.

Comfortable for a senior traveler
Palmers Lodge is a comfortable place to stay as a senior traveler. The staff is helpful and welcoming. The curtains on the dorm beds are a good touch, as it the light and power connection at each bed. Showers are not elegant, but work. Good breakfast. Good wi-fi

Very bad ventaliation
I would not recommand this hostel at all. The location is fine as the underground is close and lots of shops nearby. But the reception is busy and you have to wait a lot time to get response from the busy staff. I stayed at the 10 female dorm at the basement , there is bad ventalition and i cant breathe in the room . I cant wait to leave. The room is tiny and too crown for 10 ppl, I cant see there is enough space for 3levels bunkbed but there is. Anyway, you get what you paid for. I would pay more and stay at a better hostel nextime.

First night I got there the restaurant downstairs was closed at seven. The showers could have had more space and cleaned more often. On the other hand, the breakfast was amazing.
