For convenience sake my sister and her partner popped in to this pub for a bite to eat and a cheeky drink. The food was dreadful and customer service even worse. Slight hostile feel to the pub as we walked in. Definitely won't be returning.

Amazing place to go with your friends after work or to chill. The team is awesome as well, it's always great to see beautiful smiles. The best point is that you never wait too long for your drinks as there are enough people behind the bar to serve everybody ! Perfect place !

The location of this hostel is a good. It's inside and above the pub and it's not overly obvious where the rooms are. You go inside the pub and they take you up. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I only stayed one night and was given a room in the girls dorm where two staff lived...and I mean... More

During my vacations in London, I've been there twice. I loved the food and the beer. The staff was very friendly. The only thing is that they close the kitchen too early for me. Being from Argentina and used to eat very late, so I use to go out late when I want to have dinner. But, the second time,... More

For a last minute booking in a fantastic location you couldn't go wrong. We had a twin private room with bunk beds, room was clean as was the shared washroom. We didn't eat there other then for the cooked breakfast that was included and there's no complaints here. The only thing we found a bit tough was the noise; lots... More

Colleague and i were craving some fish and chips so decided to pop in and try and see what this pub had to offer. ordered 2 portions of fish and chips which came out very quickly... no more than 3 minutes which either means the fish was already cooked and just sitting there or it wasnt cooked properly. my fish...

We got the fish and chips and it was very good! The bangers and mash was delicious!! Prices are reasonable and the staff of very polite! We ate here two nights out of three. I would definitely recommend this place, but it does get a little busy sometimes so it was nice that we weren't in a hurry.

During our stay in London we dined at the Pride of Paddington only once. We ordered Fish and Chips x 3. The fish was more batter than fish and very small for the price we paid. Yes it is appreciated we were in London but still expect value for money. We paid £3.30 for a Fanta which again was the... More

I will never know how this hostel/hotel has such good reviews and ratings because it is simply disgusting! The bathrooms are despicably dirty and I did not get one wink of sleep because it's so loud. Beds are uncomfortable and they barely give you a blanket. the wifi doesn't work in the rooms. The only good thing about this place... More

Dear Claudiagrace93 Thank you for your feedback about your experience. As you point out this was your experience and not everyone else's. Playing devil's advocate perhaps you have a different expectation from a hostel experience compared to other guests who have enjoyed their visit with us. We give great value for money accommodation in a very central location. Our full... More
