I've stayed in a few hostels so far, this one was one of the best. It has a great conection to the metro station. The pub is a great place to hang around if you want a night off. It's crowded and the breakfest is very good. The rooms are clean and have enough space. The bathrooms are nost really... More

I anticipated staying over a pub would be noisy but I didn't realize laying in bed would feel like I was reclining in the middle of the bar. The music and singing did finish just after midnight so as long as you are prepared to be awake until then you won't have too much of an issue. Also, be aware... More

Just opposite Paddington Station. Good food and lovely atmosphere. I ALWAYS head here beofre my train back to Bristol from London. The bar is always busy, but good service and waits are rare. Good food until late and a good choice of beers etc.

We ate a full English breakfast and this is exactly what was delivers no more and no less. If we should have one comment it would be that the tomato was not cooked properly and not warm. It is perfectly located at paddington station. Good service and good value.

I dined here a few times during my stay in London. In short, the environment was warm and welcoming. I thought it was pretty neat to see various flags of the world decorating the ceiling. The pricing was fair and the food was always delicious. The staff were always super friendly and attentive. I especially enjoyed its close location to... More

I was a bit scared when I booked this hostel, as I had never travelled alone before and it was actually my first time sharing a room. But I loved the place. The hostel is near the pub (that is also called 'Pride of Paddington') but it's really quiet. Dorms, toilets, showers and common areas are clean and very nicely... More

Pro: You really can't beat the location near Paddington Station. This is a time saver if you have an early flight and need the Heathrow Express. Also, the pub and neighborhood feels safe. Con: I stayed in the 4-bed women dorm. Please fix the shower. It floods; so, you're standing in a big puddle the whole time. Also, I would... More

When my sister and I turned up we were very happy with the location and it was exactly what we wanted for a quick stop over. When Booking.com had over booked the one twin room available the staff set about to make us comfortable and poured us a free pint whilst the situation was sorted out. The owner apologised profusely... More
