the location cant be better. The area is beautiful and very comfortable to get around. The hostel itself has a very large kitchen with all the supplies, but the showers are a bit uncomfortable. All in all, i had a great experience. I totally recommend for young people.

Terrible hostel. The location is great! You're near the center of the city but you have to enjoy a small, damp, chemical smelling, noisy room in the basement with cockroaches crawling on you (no joke).. 1. We understand that these things happen in a city, but when we asked the staff to go to a different hostel, (because they were... More

Hi. Thanks for the feedback. It's unfortunate you didn't enjoy your stay. We invest substantial amounts of money in pest control. Sometimes cockroaches can be carried into the hostel (unknowingly) by our guests. They don't last very long thanks to our prevention and eradication methods. 99.999% of our fabulous guests are law abiding and in today's society everyone should know... More

So, we knew it was a hostel and not to expect much, but as far as hostels go this one was pretty poor. They nickel and dime you for EVERYTHING. They wanted us to pay extra money for wifi in our rooms and I'm glad we didn't pay because the free wifi reached our rooms. We had to buy towels,... More

If you are staying in a hostel, expect to not have the best facilities if you are only paying a few bucks. The showers were ordinary but it was overall a fine place to stay. If you want to complain about how bad it is, then stay somewhere more expensive.

Airco needs to be installed, it was way to hot, dangerously hot. Shower need a repaint and need places to hang your clothes. The beds need to be taller, I couldn't fit. The people were Nice and helpfull.

We booked a 12 person room in advance taking all the beds in the room for the weekend just gone (7/2014). It was great, exactly what we wanted, really cheap and beds that were comfortable with bed linen included...albeit a bit short for 6ft 2 people. The 3 high bunks were a good talking point and it was a bit... More

The best way to get here is either from Bayswater Underground metro station or a little more walking from London Paddington station/Lancaster gate then use your map and ask questions in the near shops for directions. Plus side is that its near the lovely Hyde Park. The negative point is that you will need to be really fit to walk/climb... More
