First off: The hostel was very cheap, so don't expect too much. The staff seemed totally bored and wasn't particularly attentive. We found it a bit odd that there were unisex toilets and even bathrooms. The location of the hostel is pretty good, it is about a 3 minute walk from Hammersmith station. We did not notice the smell of bleach/cleaner like mentioned in the other comments. The doors bang pretty loudly when closed though (earplugs are your friend). We'd stay here again because it's cheap.

The hostel is just 50 meters from the beach, so that is good. Staff were very friendly. There was a kitchen for everyone to use, including a huge fridge. The hallways were quite smelly and very ugly and the elevator was about a thousand years old, but the room was reasonably clean. Overall, it was a pretty enjoyable experience, especially if you're on a budget.

Staff was very nice, the room was very cheap but as a consequence, quite shabby. We had some ants crawling on the furniture/bed. There is a free shuttle bus to the Epcon Disney World park, which is convenient. What's not so convenient is that it only leaves twice a day, at 7 in the morning or at half past twelve. Overall I'd say the hostel is pretty good value for your money, but I wouldn't recommend staying more than one or two nights.

They booked another guy into our room! Thankfully we were around when he entered the room. Our keycards stopped working twice during our five night stay. The showers in our floor were scalding hot and there was no way to change that. When asked, staff told us everything was fine. The room was very small and shabby, but I guess that is to be expected from a hostel. The location is excellent though, just a couple of meters to Central Park. The facilities weren't very clean.
