There were people living there for months, which means they partied in the living room and there were drunk people on the corridors (which stink). The sheets on the bed were dirty and it was impossible to sleep at night due to the noise from the streets and, during the weekends, due to the parties the people living there made...

The hostel is cheap but the services are highly limited, some corridors smell like piss, some rooms have mildewed walls and ceilings, no wifi in the rooms but in the café on the ground-floor, just a little shower INSIDE the room(no bathroom), toilets outside, 3 toilets per sex and per floor. When the room has no mildewed walls the place...

Rude staff, sketchy guests who appear to be living there and are very unfriendly, unsafe area, seemed to be a lot of drugs, EXTREMELY dirty bathrooms and disgusting sheets. I'm surprised this place has not been investigated or shut down. I cannot emphasize enough how awful this...

If I could I would give a 0 star review for this place. Do NOT be tempted by the cheap price and think 'it's only for one night!' This place seriously needs to be investigated and closed down, it felt very very unsafe - many of the guests looked to be living there; they looked homeless, dirty, suspicious and looked...

Was the worst hostel that I been in my life. The staff are rude and some of them speak a terrible english that is weird because you're in England? The rooms are disgusting, smell bad and seems that they don't wash the bed sheet. Also the shower is inside of the room so the people that are in a upper...
