There was no hot water in the shower and toilet flush was not working. The best thing was the location of this hostel as its very close to tube. Also they helped us to keep the luggage for 2£ for 24 hrs.

It's history now! This was once a hostel in a great location..Basic but cheap and in the heart of Bayswater/Nottinghill. Unfortunately it has seen better days and is going to be demolished to build apartments:(

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighborhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
