The staff at this hotel are very unhelpful. Upon arrival no bed was assigned to me as the receptionist advised me to "choose a bed which appeared to be free" and if someone happens to return and find me in their bed "they will usually come and speak to reception then we can advise them to choose another bed"... seriously,...

This was one of the worst hostel stays I've ever experienced. The staff were rude and unhelpful. The £10 key deposit had not been mentioned prior to arrival. The dorm room was tiny, and stiflingly hot. There were few power outlets and there was little room to get dressed, not even in the bathroom. The bathroom door was locked from... More

Exactly what I was looking for - place to sleep close to the center in the best price possible. To be honest I was surprised how poor equiped rooms are. Just beds and a bin. I've seen many hostels and there used to be at least a chair, some bedsite cabinets - but it's not so bad. We had a... More

This hostel is in a good location very near both Queensway and Bayswater stations. The staff are helpful. The room was fine for 6 people though not very big and no lockers in the room. The worst thing about the room in the hostel was the heat. There was zero ventillation and it was so stuffy. The 6 of us... More

The best thing about this place is the location. Across from Hyde park and close to all central places worth going to. But... The beds are metal frame and very squeeky, matresses are thin, rooms are hot, bathrooms are tiny and no ventilation so they stay wet for ages. But the cleaners are there every day changing the floor towel... More

This place vas very nice because it vas near transport, shops and small restaurents. If you pay for a privete room you will get a nice breakfast. If you pay for bed in a bigger room you wil get a small and poor breakfast. Most of the pople are very nice. But I left in the middele of the night... More

The only good thing about this hostel is that it is relatively close to the city centre. They have good direct bus lines for city, Victoria Station, Notting hill... About other things, I don't know from where should I start - this hostel don't have even elemental facilities. I booked 6 bed dorm for me and my four friends. First,... More

One of the worst place I stayed at. Everything is made so that you never want to go back there again. First, the rooms: dirty, spartans, the shower was going from cold to hot without any reason and warning, the tap was unstable. The lift: DO NOT TAKE IT! It stopped when we were inside, pushed the alarm button but... More

To start, I normally do not write reviews. However, I was so appalled with the experience that I had at Bayswater that I couldn't let another person suffer. To begin, the hostel website does not work. *If* you want to make a reservation you have to book it through hostel world, which we later learned leaves out an immense amount... More
