Staying for only a few days I was asked to move to another room. This was extremely inconvenient especially since I wasn't feeling well and needed a room where I could relax and sleep. The key was taken away at 10am and I didn't have access to kitchen and toilets. This is appalling and for a 6 bed dorm the price is far too high.£30 . Margaret

Location was really good -BUT we Booked a private Double Rom with Bath wich turned out to je supersmall with supersmall beds, not even a proper case available, showers and toilet were in the corridor, towels Had to be paid extra - If i Book a room for 3 Nights for more than 200€ i Expect more value for Money!!!! Can not recommend to stay there!


Great location - train station only a couple minutes walk away, and on the Picadilly line that goes straight to Heathrow airport Staff were friendly People of all ages + some families stayed there Wouldn't mind a lift for the stairs - bit tedious to get to the rooms at times w/ heavy luggage Wifi in communal areas - plus also worked downstairs - works fine Would stay again if in the area :)

Clean hostel, good location, nice garden in the back. It's just not very cosy, no bar, less atmosphere, if you want to meet a lot of new people it's not the right place, but the location is very nice and the staff is very helpfull.


This place is decent... compared with the low standard of accommodation that London offers.


Great location and fair price for London


Very expensive for a very very basic room

The worst check in experience. Non professional staff (I checked in at 2245, 27th May). No smile no hospitality. Bad internet connection. Shower room has no rack to put toiletries bottles. Overall before average.


I stayed at the YHA for only two nights and found the location of earls court to be great. Close to the train station and a nice quiet area. The actual facilities were quite average but you get what you pay for.


I enjoyed my stay at the Earl's Court YHA. It is in an excellent position, only a couple of minutes walk from the tube. It is surrounded by a really nice area which felt very safe. My only issues were the lack of policing the noise ban in the garden outside at night (There were a few families with very loud children staying), and not all of the bathroom facilities were in working order. Apart from that I had a great time, and met some really lovely people


I have never seen a dirty restroom like this in my whole life.
