The beds were fine. The bathrooms on the other hand were very dirty, they had mold on the walls, the floor and toilet were dirty. Didn't like to take a shower there!


This is essentially a place to sleep and nothing else. The 6 bed dorm I was in was so small it was difficult for all of us to walk around to get dressed and leave in the morning. The bunk above mine was so low I would hit my head if I tried to sit up or get out of bed too quickly. There are too few bathrooms for all the guests and the common area is a tiny kitchen space. Not ideal for meeting other travelers and a depressing atmosphere to hang out in.


The atmosphere in this hostel was horrible, as well as the cleanliness and the facilities. The toilets and showers hadn't been cleaned in the last couple of years, probably, and the room smelled horrible. The beds didn't feel very proper and the breakfast was the poorest breakfast I've ever seen. I'm used to hostels like this—in Belgrado, for a maximum of 8 pounds per night. Here, I paid 22 pounds for a shared room. Bizarre. Honestly, do not go here.

Location was the only good thing about this place. Bathrooms were horrible! They were extremely dirty, like they had never been cleaned and they were never any toilet paper. There were only 2 bathrooms for the whole hostel which means that they were always occupied. One night they let a homeless man stay in our dorm. He was very dirty and smelly and left a terrible mess. 48 hours later when we checked out they had still not cleaned up the mess that he left. Dont ever stay here!!!!!


This is my 5th time staying here. With the new owner, everything is still the same. I picked this hostel, as it is very near the Earl's Court Station with lots of shops and restaurants. In terms of the rooms and toilets, they are not that clean and the kitchen is too small.


Unwilling, unpleasant staff. Share bathrooms with wc were disgusting. Monitor systems without warn. Room's facilities were to old, bed mattrasse was gruesome....for this money (£35) you are able to find better and more quality accomodation. I DISSUADE IT.

The manager treats people like dirt and thinks everyone is out to pull a fast one. They form opinions very quick and are changeable in their attitudes . they are only nice when your giving them money for towels and luggage facilities ..a joke really

Kitchen tables need to be renewed as 1 of them was broke. Not enough chairs for the number of people staying. More variety in the way of cereals not just cornflakes.
