I love this hostel!! Fab location and brilliant prices. I stayed two nights instead of just the usual one and really enjoyed my time in London. I did just find the room way too hot and stuffy so think the heating needs to be turned quite a bit down but otherwise its a fab place to stay!! Look forward to coming back soon :)

Familial and unforgetable”

friendly staff, location, price

The staff is incredibly nice, helpful. You feel like being part of the family (I've stayed 2 weeks). Internet was ok, location perfect (Camden is really a nice and safe area) and the bed was fine. Of course, it's not a 5 stars hotel but the people and memories you bring back with you are the most important and I will never forget my stay there.

It’s ok for a couple of nights. But everything is just super small and tight. You can’t sit on the bed, in the room you can barely walk, only one small bathroom for the home room it’s not nearly enough. The common areas are good. And the location is good as well. I guess for the price it’s pretty okey what you get.

Definitely the worst of the Smart branch. I don't know how this place is open, everything is so narrow and it's a maze, it will take you 15 min find the exit. Rooms are horrible, beds size is just 1.80m!! Mattress are yoga mattress. Kitchen disgusting but at least they have. People weird, workers, old, not nice at all. No lockers!! Everything is clean but looks dirty.

ROAMING NOMAD @ SCI”

I have stayed at this hostel quite a few times. Its great for one or two night stays. In my opinion it needs more and better toilets and showers. It would be great if the kitchen was larger but we usually get on with it and its great to have a self catering kitchen where you can prepare your own meals. If the place is full the kitchen area can be squashed for breakfast. Otherwise, its a cool place with a cosy homely atmosphere, free tasty breakfast. It depends who else is in the building some travellers are friendly, chatty and considerate to other people but sometimes you can meet a rotten who is unfriendly, argumentative and inconsiderate!

Cheap but you get what you pay for”

Close to Camden Markets

we stayed in a 6 person mixed dorm, the room were extremely small for that amount of people and very hot no air con or fan. our room was next to the toilet and shower but as it was on the common room level everyone uses it and it is disgusting and very noisy when trying to sleep- shower was terrible trickled one stream of water ( as the shower head was missing) there is one other shower available and that is on the top floor. Common room area was also very small for the amount of people they squeeze into this place. front desk staff were helpful, but the cleaners were pretty rude. you get a free breakfast cornflakes or toast with jam there is wifi but it only really works in the common room and reception not in the bedrooms. overall this place is cheap and nasty so you get what you pay for.

Small room, toilet ,bed and common area. Too many floors with no lift and noisy: IMPOSSIBLE TO SLEEP!!! You have to make your own bed and tidy up the linen...are we get paid for that?? Shameful. Breakfast is quite poor but that's the least of the cons (a bit of olive oil would have made a difference).

Great location to get away ”

location, wifi, clean

Location was great close to the Tube so could easily get away from this hostel. Wifi was fast and rooms were clean. Staff were very rude. I had to move after my frist night into a different room for the second night of my stay. Not only was it inconvenient but there was no help from staff to move my things. One of the house keepers was very rude and came back to my room 3 times in the space of 10mins because I had to move right then. rooms were too hot and had to open windows which made the room to noisy to stay in. bathroom was clean but small and the light would turn off every other second whle in the shower. Bed was uncomfrotable had to make up the bed myself and take the linen downstairs upon check out. I would NOT stay there again.

Above average”

The whole place is very cramped, they've tried to fit as many beds as physically possible into one building. The beds are absurdly small - if you are over 5 and a half feet, it's going to be very uncomfortable. Never a fan of a hostel where you have to make your bed in the middle of the night as you arrive as well. Location is decent though and the staff are good. You get what you pay for with this one though.
