It was just a stop off place before we jetted around the world for our gap year! The location & price were its biggest plus points I feel! It was our only hostel experience in the uk ! So nothing to base it on unfortunately! But the staff were helpful! It's an older building but has character ! When we land back on London will probably head back purely because it's cheap & cheerful :)

Got there at 2 gave us a key to a full room where we pissed everyone off soon as we popped the light on. Got it sorted tho. No lockers which was kinda sketchy. It is in a good location and its cheap so I guess you get what u pay for.

so, we've booked this hostel without looking at the reviews and everything because it was very cheap. it was less than 40 pounds for three nights in zone 1 in London in the middle of the highest season (August) and we thought it was worth booking it just because it was so cheap.

a few weeks before we went to London I started checking the reviews here, on TripAdvisor and on HostelWorld and after all the reading I was quite terrified in which place I will have to sleep for three nights - I was afraid of unclean sheets, bad toilets, noisy people, practically everything.

we came to London on Thursday evening and quickly found the hostel. the receptionist was very nice, although she wasn't English, her English was okay to understand (not perfect but okay, good enough). we were put in a mixed dorm room with six other people. the beds were okay, although they were really noisy and moving a lot when you climbed up the bunk but they were very decent to sleep in. the sheets were okay and smelled okay but anyways I slept in my sleeping bag. the toilets and showers were clean and we had no problems with queues or anything.

the hostel could've been better but overall it was okay, especially for the amount of money we paid for.

I stayed here with three friends for four nights and we were very happy with the hostel. The service is not amazing, nothing is new but it's really inexpensive, so what do people expect? Having stayed at other hostels before, I must say that this is probably the best one I've ever stayed at. It's quite clean, the beds are ok if not fantastic, the staff is relatively helpful and polite, the place feels safe and the rooms are not so congested that you can't move around. This is not the Plaza but if you want a really cheap stay in London at a really great location then this is a very good possibility!
Now, the hostel can be a little hard to find because you have to enter through the basement and they don't have a great big sign but if you know how, it's not a problem. Coming from Bayswater or Queensqay station, go left and turn left again at Moscow Rd, when you get to a Laundrette turn right, you'll find the hostel on the righ-hand side, easy peasy.

Stayed here due to the location and price. Wanted somewhere cheap as wanted to explore London not a room. Opted for a private room for my friend and I and got a four bed room with ensuite and lovely view of the park at the rear of the property. It does what it says on the tin and brilliant for a overnight stay. I would certainly stay again. The gentleman at reception was friendly and imformative as well.
