Five of my friends and I only ended up staying at this hostel because we left it until two days before our trip to London to book our accommodation. As we were only staying for two nights, we weren't bothered about staying in a hostel and this seemed to be one of the only hostels in a decent location available... More

I would first like to say that I am not picky when it comes to hotel/hostels. I've stayed in many places which has been absolutely fine even if they only were £15 a night. First of all, this place calls itself a hotel. It's a hostel, not a hotel. It is extremely smelly, the corridors are absolutely filthy. Scratches all... More

My group and I were all very nervous about staying in a hostel as we had never really traveled alone before. It was a little confusing to get to, but we made it and we made it before our room was actually ready. No biggie. They held onto our stuff behind the desk at reception and we went out to... More

I stayed in the hostel with 5 friends for 4 days, and it was by far the worst place I have stayed in. Because we were 6 we had our own room, but you could clearly see that there were people actually living in the hostel. The bathrooms were absolutely disgusting and full of mould. The one positive aspect was... More

We weren't expecting much of this place after reading previous reviews, and we weren't disappointed, although contrary to those previous reviews we were quite happy with the staff who were all polite. The chap at reception was courteous and apologised that our room was at the top, on the fourth floor with no lift. I'm 64 and was knackered by... More

There are a great many things to be said about this hostel's shortcomings (I would refer you to the other reviews for an accurate and nearly complete description), but I'd like to take this opportunity to focus on the positives. I've stayed in a number of hostels throughout the UK and the rest of Europe, but certainly not all of... More

We staid in a room for two. Clean enough, basin in the room is a positive point. Tiolets not so bad, they cleaned it several times a day, breakfast good enough if you can do with toast, butter, peanut butter, jam, cereals. Kitchen big, clean but not enough dishes - take yours and you will be happy. Nice personnel at... More

AVOID THIS PLACE - Honestly I haven’t met anyone happy staying there in this hostel. It’s a filthy place to be around. STUFF – especially at the reception – worst customer services I’ve ever received. Manager it would be better for him to be a security officer instead, very unfriendly blonde gnome. This company is bunch of liars, and its... More

On certain hostel websites, West Two gets less than desirable reviews. People complain about the bed linens, the lack of meals served, the noise. I'm a pretty finicky, girly traveller, and this hostel is actually great. Firstly, the location in Hyde Park is superb. You're just about a ten minute walk from two Tube station stops, a 2 minute walk... More
