Great stay! We loved the hostel, very nice. The brakfast was perfect to be free. The staff very helpful. It's a really good choice when you come to the city.

This is an awesome Hostel. Super friendly and welcoming. The staff there are super friendly and accommodating. The best thing is that this hostel doesn't try to nickle and dome you for everything. You can borrow things like an outlet adapter, lock and towel for 5 pounds apiece. You get all the money pack when returned, except for the towel you only get 3. My only complaint is that the bunk beds are pretty wobbly, sometimes i was afraid of rolling over so that i didnt wake the other person up.

Very well located, very close to the Queensway tube station and to the Kensington Gardens. Nice comunal area. The room was small though, too small for the amount of people there.

There are no lockers in the rooms. There are not enough bathrooms for everybody. There are no curtains in the room, so every night I'd wake up at 4am because of the light inside the room. The commom area is dull, there are no computers for the guests to use. Not very good for meeting people either. The carpet looked like it wasnt cleaned since 1982. The location is OK.

Terrible, worst hostel ever stayed in. The rooms are tiny tiny, no space for luggage, the ensuite bathroom they state in the site is a lie, all they have is a lavabo in the room, meaning when yu want to wash your theet, you can ONLY do it inside the room. Toilets are apart, most of them dont flush well, always cramped up with toilet paper and you know what else, showers are insufficient and dirty, no privacy, nothing to place your clothes on, breakfast room has no hygiene, dishes also.Bed Bugs!

The staff was wonderfully friendly and the location is fantastic, but the beds are a creaky disaster, the communal bathroom is a filthy nightmare, and the planks sticking out on the carpeted stairs present a fatal hazard.

The staff was so helpful and friendly. The free breakfast was good and the rooms were fine. The noise from the streets was a bit loud.

location was great and very easy to find. kitchen was very basic and breakfast was standard cereal with toast. staff was friendly and helpful, but nothing going on in terms of activities. would recommend to people who want something basic and affordable.

Hostel well located, close to metro, bus stop, restaurant, parks, supermarkets. We stayed in a room for 6 with bathroom but the shower did not work and we had to bathe in shared bathrooms. Notify the situation, but there was no repair or compensation. The rooms were small, with little space for storing luggage (i slept with my backpack in my bed), and the beds were noisy. The cleaning of the common area was not the best. Simple breakfast, but enough. The staff need to be more professional.

Together with a friend I stayed at this hostel, i really liked the location with a bus stop and tube station near by. Unfortunately someone broke down the locks of or suitcases, 50 pounds and my sunglasses were gone. i have stayed at many hostels before and this never happened to me. The staff wasn't really helping offering anything to make it more convenient. Further all i wouldn't stay in this hostel by my self, because there's is not much going on and people and not interested in other guest

+ : Very well located. Nice people. Rooms are ok (the price is low so I did not expect anything better). Beds are comfortable. Bathroom was clean and cleaned up everyday. Nice little kitchen available. Free breakfast. Free wifi. - : no locker in the room for your suitcase but lockers at the reception for your valuables.

One working shower for most of the hostel is a little bit too less and the floor was a little bit too dirty.

The bathroom wasn't very nice in the room we had, the tiles on the floor were all cracked and moved which was dangerous whilst being bare foot getting out of the shower, there was also a bad sewage smell in there. Location was good for Notting Hill and getting into Oxford Circus.

The hostel is extremely close to the underground station wich made things easier for me. Really fancy neighbourhood. Very clean and the staff was good as well. The hyde park is one block away and there is a street full of different kinds of restaurants nearby (from pizza hut to malaysian food) A bit expensive but you won`t find anything cheaper in London anyways. Worth going.
