Such a beautiful location! Close to the public transport services and safe neighbour. Bathrooms are clean except for a few toilets being clogged down stairs. Very happy with my stay. The place does book out fast so if your on your last night and looking at staying longer then I would recommend to book well in advance. Thanks for having me yha earls court! Xx

The staff were friendly, the room wasn't huge but for the price it was brilliant. The location is perfect, a really short walk to the tube station and also really close to the natural history museum. All round it was great and I would stay here again.

The place was quite good, however, the staff was a bit unfriendly. A smile haven't killed anyone guys! The room was clean and very tidy. There were a lot of bathrooms and toilets, so it wasn't a problem and they were also very clean. They have a big and very well equipped kitchen where you can cook and store your food. The location is good, it is near to a metro station and you can go on foot to the museums area.

Beautiful building, location and great staff. WiFi works well in the lounge. No lift, so if you are on the 3rd floor it is a long climb (staff helped me with my luggage which was very kind). Showers are not very functional, no dry place to leave clean clothes - could do with a re-design on the showers throughout.

The hostel in general is in good location for Heathrow, with a clean kitchen for all the guests which are the good points. The downfall was the 2 Staff-on-duty were very mean! It was quite annoying that for some strange reason/s - they'd rather BS about the hassle of allocating a top-bunk bed for me (which was requested by email 3-day in advance) than reserve it on the day in the first place! After that my stay was fairly pleasant.

This place has undergone a facelift lately, but its what President Obama might call 'lipstick on a pig'. Perhaps some consideration could've been given to the truly sub-par bathroom facilities, or as a payrise to the staff to try and illicit a smile? Security was fine on this occassion, but the halls are populated with a menagerie of creepers who pace around wheezing through their tracheotomy holes, or arguing with the voices inside their head.

Apart from some communication difficulty with your Pakistani staff, everything went well. Location was mostly excellent. Service was great . Give and take except for 1 or 2 fellow hostelites, most fellow stayers were great company . YHA brand must be well-known
