Fair 4.0
Poor hostel in a great Shoreditch location.
Pros: - great location in Shoreditch for pubs and restaurants - near Hoxton Station - my (private) room was v quiet so I got a good night's sleep - free earplugs - free bottled water and towels in the private rooms Cons: - dirty, scruffy and run-down - no heating or hot water in the morning (and no apology) - male receptionist hit on me while I was checking in, really not what I want, especially as a solo female traveller - dodgy area to leave your car in overnight (mine was broken into) Overall, I wouldn't stay here again as there are better hostels in London for the same money or less, e.g. Palmer's Lodge or YHA, that are well-connected to Shoreditch by tube.

Worst experience
The bed sheet and blanket was dirty, there was noise even at 1 am and couldn’t sleep at all. I know these features don’t belong to hostel but at least you can warn your customers
Mustafa, us1 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
the bathroom area was quite horrible, okay otherwise. would recommend the shoreditch neighbourhood, very interesting

Good 6.0
Don’t forget your photo ID
Unfriendly girl at reception wouldn’t check me in without photo ID even though I had my booking details and GB residents don’t need to. Unhelpful Room clean and did what I expected for £15
Andrew, gb1 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great customer service
You get what you expect from a hostel but very friendly staff and accommodating to your needs. As far as a hotel goes was great
