Definitely the worst hostel I've ever stayed at, and ive been to a lot of cheap ones during the past few months. Not sure where to start, they just ticked all the boxes - dirty, bad location, people living (and arguing) there full time, whole place stinks, no opening windows in the dorms and the shower is in the actual...

Lots of hidden extra cost, the wifi is not included, but you're asked to pay for a hotspot at the bar (the girl at the reception told me that they usually have wifi for free, but it was not working those days - but I read now from other reviews that there was no internet months before my booking!), barely...

If you plan to actually sleep during your stay, avoid it at least during the summer months. The windows have only one layer and it is right next to a busy street. During the day it gets very hot inside. The shower is in the room. Free wifi is not free but 2 pounds per computer per 24h; but it... More

I stayed at this hostel for 5 nights with my partner and what a hole! It says towels, breakfast and wifi are included but yet we show up and you have to pay extra for everything! Beds are dirty with bed bugs, bedding is old and disgusting the reception staff are so rude and unhelpful! No toilet paper on any... More

When I arrive there was people hanging about outside the door to the hostel drinking. Inside there was alcohol bottles stewn everywhere and the guests were being very loud, not respecting that some people would be trying to sleep but the staff could not seem to care less. The beds are terrible and dangerous - the beds in my dorm... More

Price is important here. You can book a bed for £9 so if you don't mind loud people drinking and smoking pot on the front door, well, you can have a decent stay here. Wifi was free for some days and then they started to charge £2 daily for the service. The shower is only inside the dorms, a problem... More

Service was just okay. We stayed in a four bunkbed dorm. The beds were clean but narrow and not sturdy, no method of climbing to top bunk other than two stools to be shared between all four. The room was small and beds touching, not enough room for even storing a pack so had to keep it in lock up... More

So I stopped here for 2 nights 12-13th June. Overall, very good. Can't knock location, within yards of Kensal Green tube station, and well served via the bus station. Review before me stated there was no security? This is a fabrication. I saw security both nights, and during the days I was there. Room I stopped in was clean, and... More

I stayed here for a couple of night's ( but only because it was an anthropological exercise ) and from my experience I have never stayed in such a pigsty in all my life. Shared rooms are fun when you are young, but I'm getting a bit too old in the tooth to be bunking down with stranger's. The biggest... More
