Only stayed for a brief night and didn't go to any common area. Location really good, in notting hill. Room was clean and well equipped in general except that my bed was really squeaky.

Clean hostel, friendly staff who smile when you walk past, good location near to 3 of the main tube lines at Notting Hill Gate. There's also a good second-hand book shop nearby where I bought 10+ books...

Very nice. The place is like a uni campus. Proper clean and max. 4 bed dorms. I was in a two bed room. Nice relaxing sleep. Although there is no kitchen and only a room with 2 kettles and microwave ovens. No cups or cutlery.

Stay again here. Nice stay.

The hostel was average. For an okay price, I got a two person bedroom, a free breakfast, and a free lunch. However, I was traveling alone and this hostel had absolutely no social atmosphere or community. It was a come and go kind of place, and the only person I met was the girl I shared a room with. The food was only average, but definitely saved me a pretty penny in an expensive city. The room was fine, but the bathrooms were a little sketchy. Definitely not luxurious but served its purpose

The rooms are clean and there are locks for the drawer and wardrobe. The windows are big enough to refresh air. The breakfast and lunch (or dinner) are provided and sometimes you can have the choices for meal. But, the shower rooms are quite small.

Amazing value for money.

Arrived expecting to stay in a four bedroom dorm only to be told that they have no four bedroom dorms, only twin share! Bonus! We were still charged the same amount! We also got free breakfast...and dinner, something which is unusual and very rare! So that was amazing :) overall the experience was wonderful, would definitely re commend this place and would stay there again in the future!

Actually not really a hostel. Most of the residents are there for long-term stay and they seem to sell free beds to travellers occasionally. So you shouldn't expect to meet other travellers there. But besides of that: clean, spacious rooms, clean facilities (showers are really small as often said before but there are also more spacious bathrooms) and a real quiet neighbourhood but just a few steps away from buzzing Notting Hill.

The twin-bed is kind of small and too tidy. Even for a typical size Asian man.

Only the lady in reception was somewhat tough when they have the vacancy they still kept the room free I can to know from one of the contacts who was also in the room,

Owner Comment (Hide)
Unfortunately the customer wished to book a room for a long term (14 nights or longer) which we were unable to provide and he would not believe the lady in reception when she kept telling him!
