Great location
No A/C. It would have been okay if the fan had a little more power. Clean toilets and showers. Weak WiFi even in the lobby area. Hearty English breakfast. Scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, grilled tomatoes, beans, toast, crackerscoffee, juice & milk and it was only £6.00 a person. Took the red dbl decker bus everywhere cheaper than the tube. We bought the Oyster card for the bus and anything left over on the card you can get the refund back. Hostel right across the street from St. Paul’s Cathedral. Great location. Friendly staff and will answer any questions you have. Comfortable beds and spacious room for 4 people. We had a sink in our room and was very convenient.

Great place to stay - In the city!!
It’s a great place to stay for a few days!! It’s in the city so you are around everything!! The bedrooms and toilets were very clean. Definitely would stay here again.

Awesome location
1 block from St Paul Cathedral, about 2 blocks from Thames river, and within walking distance to many touristic attractions. Restrooms and showers were kept clean. Would stay again.

Excellent Value & Location. But Be Warned...
Pros: - Very comfortable common space -- plenty of sofas / armchairs, TV, electrical outlets - Electrical outlet and USB ports were very nice to have right in my bunk - Surprisingly large cubbies in rooms -- maybe 2' x 3' x 4'? -- much larger than I've seen at other hostels - If you've forgotten any items, chances are they'll have it for purchase at reception. Very convenient. - Incredibly friendly staff :) - Showers: hot water right away, pretty good water pressure - Excellent location. Near two major Tube lines (Blackfriars and St Paul). Literally across the street from St Paul's Cathedral Cons: - Wifi - pretty slow, constantly dropped, and was frustrating to work with. It was also completely down for the first 2 days of my stay. - Not great if you have issues with noise. Church bells, ppl walking down the street, VERY loud bar goers Thursday through Sunday nights - There were very large school groups staying at the hostel during my stay (perhaps 10-12 year olds?). - This was not the hostel's fault, but because of that, it was nearly impossible to get breakfast or dinner as they took over the entire dining room. - Bedside lights at each bunk is nice. But the light is SOO bright and mimics daylight. If you want to use your light to read, it greatly illuminates the entire room (which wakes up everyone else in the room). Amber-tinted lights or lights that are less bright would be a great improvement.
