It was okay found it needed more care in cleaning showers thoroughly. Very quiet and good location for travel.

Hostel was cheap for english rates. Cleaning was pretty bad, when i arrived they told me to "just take the cleaner bed". Staff were friendly but not helpful. I was on the second level and the closest showers were in the basement.

Booked a 2 bed female and was given a three bed mixed. The rooms are dirty and musty, with stains on the sheets and curtains. The beds squeak something wicked, if you're brave enough to actually go near them. There's no place to lock your stuff. The showers are covered in black mold and the bathrooms smelled and were covered with toilet water. I don't know where those pictures were taken, but it was NOT at this hostel.Checked in at 10PM and out at 2AM.

I checked in by 17:30 and out by 20:00. I was so uneasy at this hostel I couldn't stay.

Great if u need a place very close to the airport for early morning flight,it's right next to underground station. Room for two people costs same as room shared with 8 people in other places, so that's great price. Room & beds are fine & kitchen pretty well equipped. Minus: wifi is useless, barely works. Train track right outside rooms, very loud, and traffic outside also pretty loud. Shower facilities are not for the faint-hearted! And toilets smell rather strong. Staff very helpful

Overall, my stay was decent at this hostel. The rooms were clean and the location was excellent. However, internet did not work my entire stay. Other hostel guests mentioned the same thing. Be aware of where your room is located because I stayed on the first floor with a window directly next to the railway. The noise from the passing trains made it difficult to rest at night. Make sure to bring locks for your luggages because they do not have lockers in the rooms.

I feel this hostel is quite good considering how cheap it is! Staff were friendly and facilities were fine. It served me very well for getting to Heathrow. It is very close to a tube station.

This is an average hostel. Location is good as the underground station is right next to the hostel, but this of course comes with noise effect. Good hostel if you don't want to spend time in it. The wifi they provided was very poor and didn't really work at all. And when it worked you couldn't move because then you'd lose the wifi connection.

The showers here were absolutely terrible. Black mould all over the ceiling, and most of the showers only dribble water out. I was actually worried I'd catch something. My room didn't have enough curtains to cover all the windows and the ones there were, were only thin sheets, so I was awake at 5am every morning. The hostel is also right next door to the underground station, so it is very noisy.

On arrival it was OK but went downhill. The place was pretty clean and tidy and my room was OK but trying to sleep later was impossiblre as it was like a sauna, so I opened the windows and all you can here is the trains. Some items went missing off the table in my room, and they just shrugged...some of the staff came in the room and \i was there said they were just checking. I didn't trust them. Not a traveller freindly place. Bathrooms and shower were gross.

Plus points + Hostel is actually right next to the Northfields tube station + Common areas and rooms were very clean + Duvets and pillows in bed were super soft Minus points - Shower area had mold with some showers only having boiling hot water, however you got the job done - Noises from outside (such a trains) and from other rooms could be heard easily, however earplugs blocked everything out so it was fine

Staying in hostels, one must not expect a hotel. But hostels needn't be dirty, apathetic places. There is no signage to declare what it is. It wasn't the dirtiest hostel I've seen, but it ranks there with ones in India. Bath/kitchen facilities were present and acceptable- it appears that guests were more responsible for them being tidy. Proximity to Heathrow and the tube is super, so as long as a person does not mind taking responsibility and being proactive/defensive for one's own needs.

Good location if you are headed to the Heathrow airport the next day but I wouldn't stay longer than a night. The train was very loud and I didn't sleep well.
