L'auberge reste assez impersonnelle. On n'y trouve pas de chaleur humaine, de proximité avec le personnel. On est comme dans un hotel où l'on paye sa prestation et une fois consommée on repart. Le rapport qualité prix est très bon, mais il faudrait revoir le vrai sens des auberges.

The Wifi is NOT free, unlike mentioned on the website and the staff doesn't seem to know the concept of smiling. Otherwise it well centered in London and the room (or at least the 8 bed-dorms) are pretty clean. Noce breakfast in the morning, also.

The price of this hostel was very misleading. You have to pay (and not cheaply) for wifi, towels, a map, etc. We had several problems with our rooms, which is a first in the hostels that I have stayed at and although they were dealt with it was still annoying. Also, my friend bout wifi for an hour (because the hostel doesn't have free wifi-not even in their lobby) and it didn't work, and they would not refund her. The only positive thing I have to say is that it was in a great location .

I arrived at the hostel and they put me in a place that there weren't a bed! So they changed me to a better place. There aren't lockers in the bedrooms.

Terrible!! Needs to clean, to improve your staff, your bads and add more facilities like internet free (it's very important for us and don't need to be so expensive) and luggage free too, for the price that we pay it should be include.

Nous avons dû changé de chambre car il manquait un lit, après une grosse demie heure à attendre que le staff ns trouve une chambre enfin ns allons découvrir que ns allons dormir dans une boite de sardines! Les lits n'étaient pas clean, et il n'y avait rien pour ranger les bagages. La cuisine et le ptit dèj inclus restent ok, qt au staff il n'est pas du tout agréable... Attention, check-oout à 9:30 sinon vous perdez votre caution des clefs... Rapport qualité/prix ok pour unz nuit ou deux.

I spent one night before an earli flight. My roomate was snoring so I couldn't sleep so thankfully the staff was friendly and let me change room at 4am. I woke up to ants on the floor....... Not a pleasant experience. Ps: you have to put bedsheets on yourself and carry back to reception after use. Charging blood prices for the wifi

I have been in this hostel twice and I will go back again any time that I visit London. The location is perfect and the room are ensuite (they include the bathroom) so it's perfect for intimacy. The rooms were more or less clean and the bathroom too. The only negative aspect is that the breakfast is always the same (bread, butter and jam) so if you spend more than two nights, I recommend you to buy some additional food.

Nice hostel in a good location. The worst part was the kitchen and its utilities.

For these price it's hard to find sth better in zone 1. Conditions were quite poor: For example problems with light switch: to switch on the light in bathroom it was necessary to switch the light in all room. Quite uncomfortable for roommates ;/

Very good location, simple but ok.

Eravamo in un dormitorio da 20 e ci aspettavamo un certo via-vai, però nelle due notti che siamo state li c'è stata gente che sbatteva le porte, musica accesa durante la notte, gente che va avanti e indietro. Poi tutti i servizi oltre a letto e colazione non sono compresi, e tutto è a pagamento (asciugamani, internet, armadietti...). Certo è che per due notti a quel prezzo è andata anche troppo bene! Non ci si può certo aspettare di meglio!

Considering the size of the room, I can't really argue about the price or the quality. I enjoyed y stay and it provided me with a place to stay when I needed it.

I didn't expect much from a cheap hostel which is located at a great location but this place surely need maintenance.

That Hostel is okay but you have to pay for the wifi, the lockers and not so less some staff members was not so nice and the bed was not solid.

En general estuvo bien. La ubicacion es buenisima con la parada de metro y autobus a 15 metros. Mi habitacion era para 4 personas y estaba correcta. Pequeña de tamaño pero decente. Esta es mi 6 vez que viajo a Londres y las otras veces estuve en hoteles de la zona y no son mejores, aunque si mucho mas caros. Incluye el desayuno pero no las toallas (4,9 £) Asi que mi conclusion final es que si alguien busca un hostel centrico, economico y es consciente de donde esta; es una buena eleccion.

O hostel é um pouco longe dos principais pontps turísticos, mas o ponto de ônibus é em frente. Os quartos são limpos e baratos. O café da manha é péssimo, mas está incluso na tarifa. Não recomendaria, mas pelo preço talvez valha a pena.

Die Lage des Hostels ist zwar recht gut allerdings hat man mit dem Royal Bayswater Hostel dennoch keine gute Unterkunft gefunden. Das Personal kümmert sich nicht und wirkt inkompetent und unfreundlich. Die Badezimmer sind durchweg eklig. Außerdem wird verlangt für jede Zusatzleistung zu bezahlen. So ist beispielsweise kostenloses Internet nicht selbstverständlich.

You have to do something about the showers but that's really the only issue i'd complain about.
