 "excellent value & location for the money"
i stayed for 6 nights in this hostel, the staff was very helpful, i was in london for medical reasons, and they helped me a lot during my stay, they even changed my room from third floor to a first floor room because it was hard for me to climb the stairs, dont listen to the bad comments for this hostel the value for the money is great , i paid only around 10 pounds per night in a female dorm, the girls in the room were all very nice, the bathrooms are clean and the breakfast is not very rich but convenient you get to drink coffee, juice, hot toast, butter & jam, and Nutella, con flakes with milk, i was full every morning with only 1.5 pounds !! the overground and underground is just on the opposite side of the road it was 1 min to the hostel from the station, thank you hostel 639 for the lovely stay :)

 "Not recommend"
The price is reasonable, staff are nice and the location are convenience. But, the hostel is very nearby a road. In the evening, it was very noisy and lots of people walked outside the hostel to smoke and talked loudly. so, i cannot sleep very well. Also, the bathroom is inside the room, no hot water supply which is very terrible.
