Property Information:

A traditional English pub beautifully refurbed for 2011. Now offering double, twin, and shared 4, 6 and 8 bed dorms and some female only rooms for the girls to have exclusively.

Close to all tourist attractions and not forgetting Hyde Park, Oxford St, Soho, Covent Garden, Notting Hill and Portobello markets. Paddington station (Heathrow Express) is two minutes away and there are four Underground rail stations all within a few minutes walk. Getting around London couldn't be easier. Add to that a major hub for London buses and this is the place to base all your London sightseeing in.

We pride ourselves on the safe, clean and fun environment we provide for all our guests at great value for money.

Our Traditional pub (downstairs from the hostel) serves excellent freshly cooked food which you can get at a discounted rate, as our guest, using the free book of vouchers issued to you on arrival. The free breakfast is great, no boring continental breakfast - a full cooked English breakfast served down in the bar every day from 8:00-10:00am and you can get a free juice or tea/coffee with that as well. What a great way to start the day!!

    In a 6-person room, only one locker had a door that could be closed and locked; all the rest were broken. The bar staff below was responsible for checking us in. They left us standing in the bar for 20+ minutes with all our rucksacks as they ignored us to serve everyone in the bar first. Bathrooms weren't very clean, but not the worst I've seen. The "common room" is very small with just a couple couches and a tv. No kitchen facilities or even a hot pot for making tea.
