Where is the pride in the Pride of Paddington pub? My girlfriend and I recently dined here. I had ordered a pie and she had ordered fish and chips. I was content with the pie, although I couldn't quite understand why the top of the pastry wasn't attached to the rest of the pie. My girlfriend's meal was very oily... More

Check in is over the pub bar. I stayed on a Sunday night and had a six bed dorm to myself. Sheets and blanket all... More

This hostel is located less than 1 minute walking from Paddington train station. You cannot get a better location. However, please note that this hostel is above a pub therefore if you get one of the lower rooms, you will hear all the noise coming from the pub. Also, as it is close to the main road, you can hear... More

The hostel is in a good position , with free breakfast (small portion but big choose of food ) . The rooms are ok and there are lockers in every room .What I found not so good was just the fact that at the check-in They give You the sheets ,and You need to make your own bad 😁

Stayed here for two nights in late December. The staff were super friendly and the guy who checked me in even carried my bag up the stairs (thanks!) My room was a ensuite female dorm with a TV and small kitchen area. The room was spacious but a little bit dark but otherwise clean and tidy. The location of this... More

we visited on 8/2/15 - big disappointment Two of us ordered the roast beef, they forgot the Yorkshire puddings although they are on the menu as was the horseradish they didn't have! The homemade apple crumble may have been made in someone's home but I'm pretty sure it wasn't theirs and there was only a thimble of carton-type to take... More

The location is very pretty, we went there two times in a week. The food is really good (beef is great) but I think it's a little bit expensive. The staff is great! You have to go there! We enjoyed it!

Excellent quality food. Fish pie was full of chunky salmon & cod. Creamy mash & a large side of veg. Burgers are enormous, but make sure you check what type of chips you're getting as some are thin french fries and some are chunky. Good wine selction & really good service. Can't wait to go back.

Great location walking distance to a lot of what London has to offer, plus good public transport links. Nice and clean rooms, good food in the pub & close by and beer. What more does a backpacker need??

I had some reservations about staying above a pub, but the location was fantastic being right near Paddington Station and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the bathrooms/showers were not too bad. The breakfast was free and it was pretty tasty. I would recommend staying here. Good value.
