This hostel is located above a pub/club, which runs until at least 2.30am; making sleeping impossible. The music gets switched back on in the morning for breakfast, so forget about having a sleep-in either.
The standards of cleanliness are good, but maintenance of the hostel is non-existent; a hole in one of the bedroom doors was covered by a bar mat, the showers require the patience of a saint to operate, and passing the pub's overflowing skips to get into the hostel, is a "hold your breath" experience.
There are better hostels, with better locations in London. But none this cheap.
