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.

I only stayed for one night inbetween moving flats. Was a bit concerned after reading all the bad reviews but I have to say for £20 in a 6 bed dorm it was alright! The breakfast was actually better than in some hostels in London i stayed in before. There was 2 kinds of cereals, croissants, toast, jams, milk, tea,... More

Next to the subway, easy to get anywhere in the city. Good and helpful staff. The room was small, dirty, noisy and couldn't leave it dark. Very weak breakfast, in the kitchen some things wasn´t working. The bath is small and old, but it was cleaned everyday. Good neighborhood. Just go if it´s cheap, don´t expect to get anything better... More

I have stayed in this hostel in June 2011 but will never forget my very first experience with bedbugs. I haven't realized what's going on until I found them in the bed and googled down in the net; Additionally even after asking for cleaning the room it was never done properly; would never come back there
