“Good location, friendly staff!”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

Liked:

Location -- Was a 5 minute walk from the Thames, the London Eye, and Westminster Abbey. Also, right by a couple of train stations.

Staff -- Staff were very friendly and always super helpful!

Breakfast was included -- It wasn't fancy but there was cereal and fruit, so it was nice not having to spend money on breakfast everyday.

Wifi -- Didn't work in the rooms the first time I was there but did work the second time, so I assume they fixed this.

Showers and Toilets -- Always felt very clean and there was quite a bit of privacy.

Rooms -- Clean, beds were okay.

Disliked:

Location -- Right by train tracks and I assume a police station or something because it was always very loud at night with the trains and the sirens.

Showers -- There were only 2 working when I was there so the line could be a bit long for showers in the morning.

Overall:

I would recommend this hostel to people who don't intend to spend too much time sleeping. Other than that, it's a really fun place to stay!

The best thing about this hostel is LOCATION. Very close to Lambeth North station, so easy to explore city. London Eye, BigBen 5 minutes walk away.
Shop working 24/7 across the street.
Breakfast included in price (coffee,tea, juices,apples,bananas, bisquits, toasts and different jams). Served in bar on the 1st floor.
Rooms very tight. As halls, showers as well. At nights very noise from outside.
One minus-no common area.
Recommeded who wants to explore city with easy exces to tube. And get a good price!

Nice hostel with a great location - right next to the Lambeth North tube station. Rooms and showers were clean with good shower pressure and plenty of hot water. Only downside is the lack of showers which means there is a long line at night.

The only good thing is location. Do not expect too much. WiFi, beds, breakfast, loud... all of them are just disappointing. But location is quite good. If you have other options, it is better not to stay here.

Room Tip: Never stay in southbank.

The staff was very friendly and the location is awesome. Very easy to get to, and all seemed safe. Walking distance to London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Churchill War Rooms, Big Ben and more. Plus if you don't mind walking you can get to Tower of London, Shakespeare's Globe, Borough Market, etc pretty easily. There was some construction going on that closed the bar at the hostel when we were there so we probably didn't get the full hostel experience. The rooms had more space than the average hostel, but the bathrooms got dirty quickly. They could probably use some sort of floor mat outside the shower.

It was great hostel with good location. It was clean and nice looking. It was great that breakfast included to the price. Also free Wi-Fi was a big plus.
Staff were also amazing, very helpful and friendly. Only downside was that in front of the hostel was a busy road, which was kinda noisy.

I stayed there for one night because I had a job interview in the following morning. It was clean, well located (2 minutes walking from Lambeth North tube station) and the staff was really helpful and nice. The downside for me was that everything is really tight. The stairs, bathroom and even the room. It seems like they had a free space on top of the bar (yes, the hostel is exactly above a bar with the same name) and decided to do a hostel in it. Also would not recommend it for couples, since they only have 10 people rooms and with bunk beds. However, if you're on a budget, is worth a shot. I paid 20 pounds for a night. The breakfast was AMAZING! Yes, all in capital letters because it was that good. Finally, the room that I was in had a broken window (not the entire window, just a part of it) and this influenced negatively my sleep, as the sound of the street came directly into the room and my bed was right next to the window.
