Generally good value at the price but Wi Fi signals in the room was extremely poor despite the staff's assurance that one would enjoy good signal in the room. Also, staff advised that one could connect to the internet on multiple devices at the same time but found out that if one device was connected, it was not possible to connect to the internet on another device at the same time.

Wij verbleven in een private room, ongetwijfeld een verschil in kwaliteit met de andere kamers/bedden. Wij kregen een beter ontbijt (met kaas!) en inclusief handdoeken. Een beetje een gammele lift, maar hij bracht ons prima naar de vierde verdieping. Uitzicht over kensington gardens. Voor een hostel en voor die prijs zeker aan te bevelen. Dan toch 1 minpuntje: de douche. Temperatuur was of lauw of gloeiend heet. De straal had ook maar 1 sterkte: een paar straaltjes en 1 blub. Prima voor even.

Location is great, very good for your money. Central London, near tube and near bus. Staff is friendly, nice to have internet at computers downstairs, quick and easily to access. Though I missed charging points and free wifi, which is a must, I think. Also there is no privacy at the sleeping bunks, which isn't great. A curtain would be little effort but add to comfort. Breakfast was ok, but could be more than one topping for bread. Altogether nice but wouldn't go back because lack of privacy.

Muy sucio y no tiene wifi gratis, tienes que pagar por usarlo, los dueños no son nada atentos, al parecer son árabes o algo así y no te atienden bien, solo las señoritas que se ven que son de Inglaterra te atienden muy bien y son amables, no me sentí seguro y la habitación era muy pequeña para tanta gente, el desayuno pues solo es pan y café, la ubicación es perfecta pues aun así tienes que usa metro para todo

Shower head faulty - hardly any water. Window cracked. Nowhere to hang trousers - hangers in wardrobe only for coats and tops. Nowhere to hang towels. Very cramped room. Both inside and outside could do with a lick of paint. Rooms very tired looking and drab.

Was in a great location, easy to get around with the underground just around the corner. Staff were helpful, basic but good free breakfast, room was small but comfortable but no hot water in the shower! We were told this was being "fixed" but wasn't fixed in the 4 nights we stayed there. Cheap and good location, though had to pay for any wifi access.

Since the hostel is at a really good location, I gave "good" for the 'value for money' point. However there are a few points that the hostel could improve at - things that would not need big investments, but would definitely do good to the guests' overall feeling: would have been nice to have more 2 sockets in the room, to have free lockers (even if with own lockpads, like in other hostels), to have wifi.. Otherwise I enjoyed my stay.

Very clean place with nice atmosphere. Wifi is not free though which really dragged the place down, if it was free this would be one of the best hostels ever and without a doubt the best value for money.

posto assolutamente sconsigliato ! personale scortese e maleducato ci volevano addirittura cacciare via perchè secondo loro volevamo rubare cibo dal frigo comune . stanze piccole e fatiscenti . l' unica nota positiva è la posizone davanti ad hyde park .

Une super auberge, proche de tout, que ce soit restauration, métro, ou shopping. Les chambres privées sont géniales pour un court séjour car le prix est quand même assez élevé... Je suis très content de ce séjour !!

It was really much better than I expected to. It doesn't mean that it was a good experience. The staff impolite, the atmosphere so far from a hostel... good breakfast, though.

Très bon séjour. Les services étaient super : SDB, la chambre, le petit-déjeuner, l'emplacement. Rien à dire ! Séjour super.

die lage des hostels ist ziemlich praktisch! doch die zimmer waren sehr klein und ein bisschen in die jahre gekommen, dafür sauber. die mitarbeiter sind hilfsbereit und freundlich. das drühstück ist eher bescheiden. im grossen und ganzen lässt es sich hier aber gut schlafen.

The staff is lovely and helpful. I wanted to mention the receptionists Hamid and Kamilia: they do a very good job !

Bad street noise all night, no so street lights and the moon shine right into your face if you sleep next to a window. Cold shower only in morning. Staff says the guests are to blame too shower at same time! Avoid!

I have just noticed that you have collected the remaining amount of £11.43 from my account. I did not come to the hostel on the 30th July. Please return my money as you are only entitled to the deposit and not the full amount. Kezia asare
