Silly title aside, my stay in this hostel on my trip to London was fantastic. Lovely staff, clean rooms, nice breakfast - all in all a great stay, thanks very much, equity point! Also the common room was happy, homely and heavenly.

We went on a school trip to London for the weekend commencing the 11th July 2014. Upon our arrival we were greeted by some of the staff who were very friendly and helpful. However rooms were basic (some better than others, it was the luck of the draw) AVOID ROOM 4 ON FLOOR 4 AT ALL COSTS, but most rooms were what we expected and were decent. Breakfast was very standard, no hot food but was a variety of other things to eat. Showers were a abysmal and constantly needed turning back on. Overall we had an alright stay.

Room Tip: Avoid room 44 as it is the worst room.

After reading the negative reviews on tripadvisor, I (and my party) were expecting the worst. We had packed sleeping bags and our own sheets, alongside several cleaning products. I am glad to say that these were never used and stayed in our bags.

The locations is superb, with a 2 minute walk to Paddington Station. We walked to the Natural History Museum through Hyde Park - so not really too far. It is also quite quiet too - we were never woken up due to road noise.

The breakfast was standard, the toaster could have been better, but that was a minor item. There was something for everyone.

Whilst we were there, Holland Vs Argentina was on - so, as expected the breakfast area was turned into a mini football stadium for us to watch the match. It was a superb atmosphere, with everyone being so lovely towards one and other.

The rooms were fabulous - I cannot fault them at all. Towels, duvet covers, pillows and blankets were included - you needed nothing more.

After this superb visit, I'm looking at doing the same trip with my Scout Group.

Don't let the reviews put you off - it is a superb hostel to use.

The bedroom was small, cramped, mouldy shower curtain. No blankets provided, uncomfortable beds, choice of food was poor. The door handle was faulty, and the shower kept turning off halfway through showering. The only good thing was the location, but overall very disappointed, NEVER EVER COMING BACK!!!!

This Hostel was a great introduction to London. Operating to a very high standard for a Hostel and easy to get to from Heathrow and fast especially if you catch the express train from the airport to Paddington Station. A short easy walk from there. The room was very clean and the breakfast generous and a great place to meet lots of other travellers.

Pretty close by the restaurants and also the train is close by so you can reach your destinations fast. Came with 4 friends and the rooms are clean and also the bathroom is OK nothing bad with it, breakfast is limited to bread cereal and yogurt but it's good.
