Great for a hostile, great for the price!
I checked in after two weeks at staying in other hostels around Europe. I was grateful for the amount of space the rooms offered (you could spread your stuff out and repack it without being in anyone else's way) and the simple yet pleasant amount of privacy the beds afforded. Room was clean and comfortable, and the large space made snoring and squirming noises a minor issue at most. Desk staff was helpful. Location wasn't right in the action, but only a short walk from the Camden market area an easy bus or tube ride everywhere else. All in all, was very pleased with my stay! Great price, easy enough to take a shower (lots on floor -1!), very easy to sleep at!

A pretty good hostel that was in budget
It was a decent hostel, pretty clean, a bit on the noisy side, but that's going to happen when sharing a room with 10 other people. Good location, lots of places to eat around and very close to two Underground stations.

Nice hostel option with plenty of amenities on site. It’s very large so there were several school groups with young kids staying during my time there, made it feel a bit more like a hotel overtaken by a middle school. The staff are friendly though and there are some good common spaces. The female only dorm is on the top floor and a little cramped but fairly quiet. There is really not much around the hostel at all but it is close to the tube and several bus lines which makes it easy to get around to the more exciting parts of London. I’d consider staying again next time I’m in the city.

Step inside for a taste of England
Very nice pub-like atmosphere throughout. Breakfast was fantastic both in volume and selection. Plenty of car parking area.

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.
