The only positive thing about this hotel is the staff. Both front desk guys were friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is a disaster. "Air conditioning" is a small fan in the one outlet in your room. There is no lift and just getting up the stairs to the front desk is long and steep 25-30 stairs. Then, the rooms... More

Honestly, I've stayed in nicer hostels, but you get what you pay for. In this case, what you're paying for is a {lumpy} bed, {spotty} wifi, a {shared} hot shower, and a {pretty dingy} place to put your stuff in a PRIME location. The hotel is literally across the street from Paddington Station, with easy access to Notting Hill, Hyde... More

On arrival the first thing that hits you is the smell of something stale. The carpets probably need a clean. Checked in and was given 1 key card. Off up 4 flights of stairs someone previously said 88 all together very unsteady handrails. Opened the door of room 11 to find a double bed and fridge just enough room to... More

We booked this hotel last minute for our trip to London it was a reasonable price for being last minute. The hotel location is quite good as it's just down from Paddington station. The hotel room was very basic and only had the essentials you need but was fine for the price.

When we arrived at the hotel we were assigned a room on the top floor, which is 88 steps up a wobbly, unstable staircase which seemed like it was going to collapse under the weight of the suitcases and trolleys we were carrying. But with a break halfway due to the many steps we unlocked the door with the one... More

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
