It&#39;s a hostel, so the beds had a wipe clean cover on, then you put the sheets on. It&#39;s usual though, and very hygienic. The drains smelled by morning. Myself and son enjoyed our stay, although...

Pleasant”

I loved the location. Close to grocery stores, restaurants and general stores. It was very clean. Area seemed safe. There was a very nice park very close
There were no tables and chairs to sit and work in common areas. They did not have coffee, tea and milk for guests. They didn&#39;t provide hand sanitizer in rooms.

One of the nicer hostels I stayed in. Over the covid though so I dont know what would be like otherwise. All sound.
Maybe a little cold, even with closed window. thicker duvet would be better.

The location, close to central London for only £25 two nights, also the night life goes on too but didn&#39;t get enough time to see it&#39;s potential as work got in the way. Definitely returning...
There was no duvet provided so I had to sleep in my coat with a sheet on the bed. Guests aren&#39;t too nice but that can change!

Exceptionally helpful staff. Cool names for floors. Handy usb chargers. Lots of excellent rental offers. Some very interesting guests. A cool and mysterious quality.
Although it&#39;s got style and there are a lot of great touches, it&#39;s a tiny bit shabby here and there. Also there was rubbish in the bed.
