Most of the reviews on this website refer to the hostel that was here before. Management has upgraded the facilities and they've pretty much fixed the place up. Everything is new and you get the feeling you got a bargain for the price you paid. Pros: location (restaurants, supermarkets, tube station), new furniture, free wifi, and decent prices. Cons: the...

I stayed here for 1 night in October 2013 and can't really fault the place. I only used it for the room (didn't use - or even look at - the other facilities, such as the common area or breakfast). The place could do with redecorating but this doesn't affect its purpose. I only paid £11 for the night which... More

I booked to stay here for 2 nights with some friends visiting from abroad. The place looked like it hadn't been decorated in decades, or cleaned in weeks. The bunkbed was broken when we got there with screws sticking out of the wood and there was barely enough room for 1 person in the room, let alone 3, not including... More

It was a horrific stay. Since we arrived and saw the room we tried to cancel it and go to other place. Dirty, grimy, uncomfortable mattresses, musty. We couldn't sleep at all. Really noise room because the window are old and not noise-proof. You share the room with mouses!!!. The kitchen has 5 chairs for 50 clients, pretty poor breakfast... More

I was slightly worried about the hostel after reading reviews for this place, but let me tell you if you're looking for somewhere that is a roof over your head, has friendly staff and is close to pretty much everything from pubs to earls court, this place is fine. Will stop there again!

This hostel is worst place I've ever been to. We (a couple) booked 3 nights in a double-room with a - in my opinion - relatively expensive price of 160 pounds via booking.com. The location is quite good (5min walk to Earls Court), but that's about it with positive findings. The room we had was located right in the middle... More

I stayed for four nights recently and I would not reccomend it to anybody. There were MICE in the room and the noise from the traffic kept me awake all night. The fire doors were constantly propped open which is dangerous and against the law. Don't go.
