This place was seriously ghetto. I imagined it to be something similar to middle school. Let me tell you a story...

I changed hostels in the middle of my London trip so that I could be closer to the train station. It's a pretty far hike from where I was originally staying, and probably even further from the hospital. (Don't ask). The beds are stacked like cages and there were like 20 or...more

I did find it a little whack that in the 7-person room (which is in the...more

This is the first hostel I've ever been in and right from the get-go I know this place is very bad.

1.) the customer service is horrible. i seriously waited 45 minutes just to check in.

2.) most of the people that worked there weren't really that helpful (except fo Evalinda (?))

3.) NO WIFI!!!

4.) .50p for 15 minutes of shitty internet connection.

5.) the rooms were too small to fit 9...more
