I'm not sure whether or not it was due to the fact that it was my first experience in a Youth hostel, but I didn't enjoy the place that much.
It's indeed ideally located, in a very calm neighbourhood, close to St Paul's Cathedral, and to lots of major attractions of London, but still not so easy to find.
This hostel is also not that astonishing, quite commonly decorated, and with not a that warm atmosphere.
My dormitory was also just in front of the laundry, and therefore extremely noisy, such as the people entering the bedroom till quite late in the evening. Though the place was said to have been recently refurbished, I was amazed to discover for the first and only time in my life so far, triple beds! Quite special, and not that cool, such as the showers, quite basic.
Lastly, the breakfast was good, but you could only go once, and didn't have that much choice. It was also like a cantine, and I didn't like too much the atmosphere.
Since then, I've discovered much better places for backpackers, and at a cheaper price!
