I went for this place cause it was the cheapest in London at the time i stayed
completely NO Regrets for my choice, actually i am looking forward for going again,
i was in London for medical reasons, my booking was a bed in 8 bed dorm, yet when i arrived the staff understood that i cant climb too many stairs so they switched my bed with another one in a 6 bed female dorm with no extra charge, my roommates were all nice, other guests can suffer from other roommates, but this is how usually hostels are, if you will be offended by other people's hygiene then u should book a private room !!! i knew the rules of the place before i travelled so totally no surprises for me,
The breakfast, i loved it is very cheap (1.5 pounds only ) u can eat all what u want of bread, butter, nutella, jam, corn flakes, coffee, tea, juice which for me i felt more than enough as a start of the day. the staff are nice as long as you are nice to them, when at the first day i greeted the old man responsible for cleaning the toilets, he smiled for me every single morning afterwards and asked me if i am OK with the toilets :) .
So i believe the misconception about this place is the attitude of the too young travelers who expect everything in the cost of nothing
As for location, it is just across the road of kensel green station where there is underground and overground trains, perfect for me as i needed both, nearby Lidl and close to kilburn area (2 overground stations away) where a lot of cheap shopping and a street market
