This was the first hostel I had ever stayed in, but have stayed in more since. It was okay. The Thai food at the bar is EXCELLENT so I loved that bit. It was a bit grungy and the only hostel that I wanted to wear shoes in the shower for. The location is right on the river which is fun. There is a bus stop right outside the hostel, but the tube station is further away. I love walking so I didn't mind so much, but I tend to prefer a more central location. The neighborhood is quiet, seems mostly residential, I only saw one other pub in the area. Reception staff was nice and I met some interesting people at the bar, though most said that they were looking for other hostels to stay in. The locker situation was okay, but there were not enough in the room, so some people used lockers out in the hallway. I actually preferred this so I could be noisy early in the morning. Most of the people I met were in London to sightsee and tended to be early risers rather than night owls, but this was just my experience.
