I've just returned here from one night in London, we needed somewhere cheap as my friend was travelling from Argentina on budget and yes this was cheap, we thought with breakfast included as well, you couldn't go wrong! For me staff make a place, the staff from the moment I checked in were not hospitable. The £10 charge up front... More

My last hostel experience was 9 years ago so knew what to expect. This isn't like othet hostels I've stayed in. £10 bedding deposit had to be paid in cash on arrival. Making your bed in a room with 3 fellow unknowns isn't easy or pleasant, you have no option but to switch the light on. The bed was comfortable,... More

Stayed here two nights and it wasn't enjoyable. Place was cheap but you get what you pay for. beds were very small and crammed. The other guests were noisy and didn't care turning on the light in the middle of the night.

It was perfect for the price, friendly receptionist. Make your own bed and you go to sleep! Problem was not the hostel as such more the guests! Turning on the light in the middle of the night! This can not be reflected in the hostel but just be aware not everyone is as considerate as they could be. Toilet was... More

Fantastic location in a nice neighbourhood, on the border of Hyde Park and a 5 min walk from Notting Hill. Half an hour walk to all the main attractions, would recommend using Google maps tho. Free maps and earplugs, fine rooms (we slept in a 6 people female dorm), ok toilets (mixed for guys and girls, don't forget flip flops... More

Convenient, small, clean, comfortable hostel ! Stayed for two nights with six friends. We booked a six bed dorm. The room was on the top floor ( a lot of stairs) but had a nice view! The reception is available 24Hr. You need ID to check in and is a £10 deposit per person which you get when you bring... More

It is really OK if you can't go somewhere else... You take what you pay for. The staff is alright. When I arrived I thought they were quite rude, but they are really alright, quite cool and helpful. The place is quite dirty, but not unbearable. Breakfast is horrible, but eatable. The only huge problem is regarding the bathrooms: water... More

There are two things that attracted my attention and made me choose this solution for my stay in London: the location, which is really nice and really close to the city centre, and the price, very very cheap. I guess that for the price you get what you pay for, but there are several things that with a minimum expense... More

I can only imagine that the rooms upstairs were as good as they said, unfortunately I stayed in the room in the basement... they could improve the bathrooms and add more room for the bags in the rooms. Great location and really nice staff

Location, location, location. However... The kitchen is lacking in utensils. Please get some more. The rooms are too hot (not well-ventilated) and too crowded for the amount of beds that are in it. Beds are stacked three high, which can be scary if you're forced into the top bunk. If you're 6ft or taller, best of luck to you, you... More
