“Great Value in a Prime Location”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

I had stayed in a Meininger property in Germany over a year earlier and was pleased with it so it was great to find one in central London.

The building doesn't look special from the outside, but once you are inside you will be impressed. It has a nice bar and reception area. The reception can get busy at times so be prepared to wait a few minutes. I was staying in a basic 6 bed dorm which was fine. There were plenty of bathrooms on the 6th floor.

I didn't use the laundry or kitchen on my one night stay. I did have the buffet breakfast which costs £4. I don't think it's very good value for money. You would be better off finding a local cafe or going to the Waitrose which is close to the hostel, right next to Gloucester Road tube station.

Great public transport connections to here. Just a few minutes walk along Cromwell road from close to Gloucester Road station and you're there.

The rooms were basic but with comfortable beds. It's in a really nice street in London which is safe.

I would certainly stay here again if I was looking for budget accommodation in central London.

Room Tip: Be nice at reception

It's in good location of west london. For budget travelers, it could be a good choice for few days of stay in London.

Very good location. Room was okay, would be nice to have a bed light. You could only switch on the main light. However place was very clean, Staff was very friendly and helpful. Not sure where i did read bad reviews about the breakfast. But the breakfast is absolute worth the money and it's good! Really a shame i only took it on my last day. I would highly recommend the place.

Make sure you take a padlock with you, under the bed is a storage where you can put in your stuff. And downstairs you can do your laundry. ask at reception for key. you pay 2.50 and it does take on hour and drying is 1.00 ( i think) can't remember
