"Clean, Convenient, Cheap"

Hostel is conveniently located to several tube lines and was both clean and inexpensive. Common (shared) bathrooms were plentiful and always clean. The room was rather small, but satisfactory. Continental breakfast is included. The bar downstairs did prove to be a little noisy at night, but it's to be expected in an 800 bed hostel. A wide variety of people, both nationalities and ages, were staying there. Would definitely recommend for people looking for a cheap, convenient place to stay.
