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

My girlfriend and I had booked into this place for one night, we stayed for 30 mins. The place is a tip. The room we booked didn't exist, a guy in the room had a go at my girlfriend for using her Phone while he was trying to sleep (at 2:30 in the afternoon)??????. The staff have a "whatever" attitude.... More

Stayed here for a uni trip. First impression wasn't great, staff were rude and unwelcoming. Room was dark and only had one light. Shower and small sink in the corner along with four bunk beds. Linen definitely had not been changed since the last tenants stayed, absolutely vile. Shower worked fine, but definitely hadn't been cleaned before our arrival either.... More

Not a great hostel, pretty dingey. The pillow was as soft as a couple of bricks and the matress was pretty thin. The wifi didnt work while i was there apparently it was broken but they didnt seem surprised. The toilets were pretty clean though, and the girls at the front desk were nice.

We booked to visit with a school group to stay for two nights. we had issues with them in the week leading up to the visit so contacted PayPal who thankfully held our money. After ringing the place to find out if it was suitable for the type of students we were bringing they said yes, I wouldn't stay there... More
