    Wifi is terrible, even if you pay £1 for wifi in your room - it does not work. Front desk staff were very rude and not helpful AT ALL. Really did not enjoy my stay and won't be going back. The location is good in the sense that it is in walking distance to the tube and shops/Covent Gardens, but I would advice others traveling to London to search for a different hostel.

    Easy access to BM and central London. Growded, but didn't bother me. Very basic breakfast, nice and free.

Alright before I get into my hell-ish day, I'll talk about the positives first.'s Christmas Eve! Doesn't really mean much to me this year, although it …

    So we woke up on Thursday after an interesting night at the hostel. I'm an incredibly hard sleeper so I heard none of this, but apparently there were drunken French people yelling across the courtyard all night long keeping Jeff and Edward awake. The beds were less than comfortable, we actually had to lay in very specific ways to avoid having sp...
