Convenient for Paddington, and a good selection of well kept beers. Good food as well, but seems expensive for what it is, i.e. normal burgers, steaks chips etc.. Certainly passable, and expect I will go back, not sure how it fairs as a hotel as only there for an evening.

We didn't stay here but we did frequent here for food and drinks. The staff were friendly and the pints and food were top notch. The big daddy breakfast would really set you up for the day and anyone that has that will be happy.

I was quite impressed when I stayed here with a few friends, the hostel was clean, the staff were friendly and the free breakfast was the best I've had in a long time. There were a few smaller issues I found: - The dorm beds were cheap metal bunk beds, you could feel every movement from the person on the... More

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
