I am an English teacher from Oslo who has brought my students to SHPV for the 12th time in 7 years. The place is great for what you are paying for. I usually bring 15 students and they stay downstairs in the hostel and myself and the other teacher stay upstairs in the private rooms. Staff GREAT! Location GREAT! Building... More

I stayed here twice on my trip: the first night and the last (I went to many different cities in between). The location is what brought me here. It's less than 10 minutes from Paddington Station, convenient when you have a morning flight out of Heathrow. There's also easy access to three Tube lines less than a ten minute walk... More

Hello! Thank you very much for your valuable feedback and rating. We understand that some dorms, especially the ones in which many guests are staying, can seem small due to the large amount of guests staying in the same room. However, we have different types of dorms available ranging from 16 beds to the double or triple private room. Therefore,... More

The staff was really friendly, awesome ambient. With all the freezing weather on the outside, the room was always warm when we arrived, as well as clean and comfortable, really good choice for a low budget.

We had dine problems Flushing the toilet and the Windows was quite hard to open and close. Before we left we read... More

If you want the worst service in London, this is the place to stay! Ali is the best at giving you the worst service ever! I have travelled a lot but this is awful! Value for money is great but try another place!
