Very tight rooms and beds, bathrooms are not clean enough, staff in slow motion. Breakfast is misery. I would recommend other hostel for sure. Only if you must for one night. Only benefit is that is few min from tube station.

They can offer to keep your bags in a locker downstairs. There are small lockers in the rooms to keep your stuff (cellphone, wallet...etc.) as well. so if you have a big-sized bag, you can keep it downstairs.
