We were three girls and I booked for us the room for three. When we arrived there, we were given a room for 4. Why? I have seen double bed+one normal and why we have had to stay in room for 4? On the website is written that the privates (double beds, and apartmants for 3 have towels included;the lady who has given us keys told us that it is not like that. And after arguing with me she said ok I will bring you (SHE DIDN'T)! The door lock was broken, also. The bathrooms terrible.


The bathrooms are too small and dirty. And the washing machines needs to be fixed.

Waited for an hour for the keys to the place. But other than that it was okay!

This is the most disrespectful place I've ever stayed at, I was initially booked for this hostel, when I arrived they said it was full... I had to go to one of their other hostels, no choice, I went to 51 Brondesbury Park, there's no staff on site, only when they come to check in or out, the staff won't pickup their phones, and if they show up at the hostel and you try to talk to them, they will tell you their shift ended at 5, I cannot stress this enough, this hostel should be banned from HW.

The hostel was really bad. Not the hostel from the pictures. Room did not include all the service which should have been in it. For example no TV in the room, no towels (had to buy some, because none there), no hair-dryer, Wi-fi was really bad. Was no double room what I booked, but a twin room. Showers and toilets were disgusting. Very dirty and not cleaned everyday. No soap on the toilets (had to buy soap).


Self check in is a challenge otherwise fine...

This was the worst place I've ever stayed. There is no front desk service, no maintenance, the door lock stuck--huge fire hazard--the windows were broken and there was no heat, so I froze all night. The mattress was laughably bad and uncomfortable and the blanket was totally inadequate. The laundry machines didn't work and the in-room fridge was old and buzzed loudly all night. This room was so loud I needed earplugs to sleep and the blinds were broken so the street lights shone in all night.


This property was not what was advertised. Photos were different & it was a 15min, rather than 5min walk to closest tube. Bathrooms were dirty & the one available hair dryer found didn't work. Worst was the bed - the springs were almost sticking through the mattress and after one night of no sleep we went out & spent £30 on a matress topper just so we could get some sleep for the remaining two nights.


With no staff on site, other tenants were constantly pounding on the front door to be let in, which was both annoying, as well as completely removed security with other tenants breaking down an letting them it. This removed any possibility of sleep, as the pounding happened at all hours. Definitely not worth the money I paid. Next time, I will spend the same amount for a real hotel.


가장 큰 문제는 호스텔가기전 연락을 해야한다는 것이었다. 나는 유심칩이 없어서 통화가 불가능해서 이메일을 주고받았다. 세세하게 글들을 읽어보고 결정해야함.보통 지도표시된 곳이 호스텔인줄 아는데 전혀 다른데 있으니 무조건 연락부터 하시길.외부나 내부나 소음이 많았다. 장기투숙객이 많았다. 다만 화장실과 샤워실은 괜찮았음.옥스퍼드서커스역까지 버스로 2~30분 걸렸다. 2존에 있다.


Very good Hostel! Clean, good people and confortable!

This is a decent budget accommodation in London. Its not the cleanest and the staff are over stretched so if you want something you may have to do it yourself. ie. Cleaning. The only problem I had was the washing machine. There is a decent laundrette on Kilburn high street beside Brondesbury train station. About a 5 minute walk. If you have just moved to London and need some where short term until you get a job this place is ok. Its good value for location if you're not fussy.
