El barrio es muy lindo.Aunque algo alejado (igual hay bicicletas paa alquilar en la esquina).

He estado más de una vez en Londres y siempre me he quedado en hostales. En general, si se buscan precios más o menos bajos todos son parecidos. Este, en concreto, está bien ubicado y al menos las sábanas estaban limpias y los baños, aceptables. Se veía gente limpiándolos cada día. Si lo quieres solo para dormir está bien, aunque no para largas estancias. 2-3 noches máximo. La cocina tenía muy mala pinta. No incluye desayuno.

Very dirty carpet being held together by studs and bolts. Some of the floors are so old that you can feel it cave in when you walk over it. One of the bathrooms had poop smeared all over

Hat meine Erwartungen absolut erfüllt bzw. in vielerlei Hinsicht sogar übertroffen! Nicht nur wegen dem Preis empfehlenswert, auch die Lage, die Mitarbeiter und die Atmosphäre sind top!

Hostel is in amazing location, close to tube and shops/restaurants. For that price you can't go wrong, but there was one huge down side, too much Spanish people and they were really rude, seems like they own the place.

When you are paying so little for accommodation in central London you can not expect perfection. We found the hostel functional and met all our needs. In a central location with cooking facilities. ...

Room was described as having an ensuite. The "ensuite" was a shower cubicle in the middle of the room with glass painted white so you couldn't see in. The shower head was broken. No privacy to get changed because of set up. There was no toilet in the room (despite being described as ensuite) and the shared ones in the hallway were blocked several times. Although there were 4 beds in the room there was not enough room for 4 suitcases in the room. Wouldn't want to share this room with strangers.

Die Dusche und Toilette absolut dreckig. Die Toilette jeden Tag verstopft. Die Zimmer waren okay, will aber nicht wissen wann dort das letzte mal gewischt wurde. Sind mit wenig Erwartungen gekommen und das hat sich auch bewahrheitet. Allerdings - Schöne Lage am Hyde Park. Wer was für Londoner Verhältnisse günstiges sucht und sowieso den ganzen Tag unterwegs ist sollte sich damit zufrieden geben können

Does palabras: Impre sentable. Es un desastre, sucio, carente de seguridad, sin lockers, con olor a humedad, el personal deja bastante que desear...en fin, para nada recomendable.

For the price, there's plenty of better hostels around London. It is cramped, has lots of dangerous, (slippery for outside) steep stairs, and has an extremely unclean feeling to it.

Das Fenster im Zimmer war sehr alt und schloss nicht richtig. Bei um die 0 Grad Celsius nachts wurde die Heizung zudem nicht warm und die Dusche war schimmlig. Ach ja,die Bettdecke war fleckig.

☆良かったところ ・レセプションスタッフはみんな優しいし24時間いるから安心 ・ベッドとふろはそこそこきれい ・安い割に立地がよくbayswater駅まで徒歩5分で行ける ★悪かったところ ・部屋の空気がいつもこもっていたので換気しないとまじでくさい ・部屋のコンセント絶対足りない ・部屋に個人ロッカーがなく貴重品は置けない ・エレベーターがなく受付は地下で部屋は上でと重い荷物持っての階段上り下りはきつかった。階段狭いし ・部屋数の割にラウンジが小さいしテーブルの上も食べかすで汚かった。台拭きとか常備すべき ・キッチンが一番ひどい、なにかって言うとまずシンクが水浸し。匂いも生ゴミ臭い。極め付けは冷蔵庫の中。チーズが腐ったような生ゴミの臭いがする。絶対何日も何週間も置き去りにされた食材があるから一回思い切って捨てたほうがいいと思う。

The hostel is rather dirty and not as close to the center as we thought it would be. The team was a bit unorganized but quite friendly. We had to change rooms (11 to 4) because of their bad planning, but were really happy about it in the end. Room 11 stank like hell and the beds didn't allow you to sleep longer than half an hour without getting awake again. 4 was at least not that dirty. I'm used to staying in a hostel but I next time I'll go for a different stay to not get ill from the mildew

Altogether it's a great value for money.Roommates were nice, bathroom was en-suite, mattress ok, cleanliness ok, staff was helpful. Downside: you have to climb some floors, which can be inconvinient with heavy luggages, and wifi is poor.The location is great, lots of restaurants, shops, lively even late at night, so I'd say it's quite safe. Metro stations are very close, and will take you anywhere quickly. This was my 2nd stay, so I'd def recommend it

Most of The staff was really nice and helpful. rooms were wide and beds were clean and amazingly comfortable, The water in the shower was warm and the view from the window was great, However The WiFi is slower than a turtle and it cuts off several times per hour and there wasn't any soap or cleaner in any of the bathrooms. The hostel was a great value for money considering that it has a kitchen and is really near to kensington gardens, Hyde park and oxford street (city center).
