To save money, we stayed in an 11 pound per night 22 bed dorm. While a scary thought at the start and worried about the lack of sleep, we were happy to realise while the hostel wants the guests to have a good time, they kind of discourage a loud party atmosphere and restrict any type of drinking and partying to the resturant area which is far from the rooms. Also it is expected that between the hours of 11pm and 9am the noise is kept to a minimum. This was great for sleeping, not to mention small but incredibly comfortable bunk beds. There were also a suprising number of older guests and families in the hostel.
The bathrooms were horrible though, unthinkably small and awkward to manouvre when having a shower or using the toilet or even brushing your teeth! The location is not very good, no decent shops around though there is a decent Indian resturant just up the road everything else is deep fried junk food. The bus stops right outside the hostel and is 15 minutes to Central London which was fine for us.
Pros: Free breakfast (cereal, toast and croissants), quiet at night, comfortable bed, daily cleaners, privacy curtains around each bed
Cons: Bathrooms, unreliable wifi that is only around the reception area, not in the rooms and loses connection every few minutes, far away from central , staff were not very helpful or polite
