At an excellent location a few steps away from Paddington train station, my single room was of a good level for hostel standards. Shared facilities were clean and in good state and I enjoyed free wifi access and continental breakfast served to my room; this latter was more of a set of packaged snacks than a proper meal, but there...

Some of the negative reviews really worried me about staying in this place but I had nothing to worry about. I stayed for 2 nights with my son for his 7th birthday treat at the Natural History Museum and Science museum. Firstly, the man who was on the door when we arrived was very nice and friendly, our booking was... More

Very small room. Room was clean. Bathroom also clean. WiFi and TV ok. Bed very small. Windows did not close well. Location ok. I only wonder what will happen to you when there is a fire. Really dangerous with all the narrow stairs. Room was ok for short stay

I don't know what people expect seriously. If you want a big room then pay the extra money and go to the Hilton or something. But for this price, it is pretty amazing. Granted the room is not big, but it does the job. What we needed was a place to stay and that's exactly what we had. We even... More

We were nicely surprised for the low price (bathroom shared) to find a modern room, clean and with all facilities( kettle, fridge , coffee, tea, sink in the room). the room was very... More

Booked a room here with 3 single beds for a work trip. On arrival the male 'receptionist' tried to get us to accept a room with a double and a single and said it was the last room available. He then tried to play with words to suggest I had booked a single and a double. Once he realised we... More

We booked a standard room, were given a basic. The shower and toilet were on the next floor and we had to share. Breakfast was delivered to the room. Entrance was up very narrow stairs, grubby reception, filthy room. As we were not given what we booked we left but unfortunately the hotel manager charged us for a night for... More

I visited during a very busy summer month so most of London was booked out fully. I came to London to visit friends and family so I didn't spend much time in the hotel but it was perfect for what I required; a place to stay with breakfast, at a very reasonable price! On top of this I the staff... More

Positives Very close to Paddington station. Clean bathroom. Large assortment of sweets for breakfast. Fridge. WiFi. Negatives Many stairs to climb. Very small bed in extremely tiny and very dirty room. Very poor use of space. No milk with breakfast (but can buy it across the street). Dangerously hot and hard to control shower. Contrary to ads, they don't arrange... More
