    Spacious room. High ceilings. Plug sockets next to pillow. 24 hour reception assistance. Private car parking for extra £5 per night. Lots of shared facilities. Close to Swiss Cottage tube station.

    Noise from fellow guests in next bunk bed kept me awake with his snoring. And the other inconsiderate guest was on his messenger sending and receiving messages with the ping and sshhh sounds during his constant non stop converstions.

    The location of the hostel was great, there are supermarkets right around the corner and the area itself is pretty nice. Walking to Camden would be a bit far but is possible too. Furthermore there is train station around the corner and the bus frequents the area quite well as well. The beds were quite comfy, albeit as cold as the whole hostle. It's hard to make friends when everything is seperated to much.

    It was hard to make aquaintance with anyone. Everything seemed quite seperated and people weren't there to get to know each other which probably is connected to the way the hostel is build. It's way too big to get together and have fun with others. While the pub is nice too, the outdoors will be closed around 9.30pm or something and everything seems rather stiff. As for the kitchen, that one is way too small. Don't try and cook there for yourself. Furthermore if you haven't booked breakfast you have to be lucky in the sense that the kitchen and eating area will be closed after lunch so it can happen that you have to wait until 11pm or even 12pm to access the kitchen or dining area again.
