i WAS CONFUSED BECAUSE I DID NOT KNOW THIS WAS AN ANNEXE OF THE MAIN HOSTEL. A GUEST HAD TO TAKE ME UP TO MAIN HOSTEL 10 MINS WALK AWAY BUT IF NO ONE HAD BEEN THERE I WOULD HAVE BEEN TOTALLY LOST, AS THERE WAS NO INDICATION ON MY BOOKING FORM.

This is my favourite London hostel. It is spacious and there is a comfortable and relaxed social atmosphere. They have just got it right, perhaps helped by beautiful location in Holland Park and by the gardens within the hostel grounds and the outdoor eating/seating area. Location great for shopping in High St Ken, also easy links to key areas of London via buses just down the road.

THE ONLY SHOWERS ARE IN THE BASEMENT AND THEY ARE PRETTY BASIC WITH NOWHERE TO HANG CLOTHES OR WASHING THINGS. STAFF WERE NICE AND THE FRESHLY LAUNDERED COTTON SHEETS LOVELY. I LIKED THE INDIVIDUAL BUNK CURTAINS.

BETTER LIGHTING IN THE SITTING ROOM AND RECEPTION. BULBS MISSING IN CHANDELIER IN SITTING ROOM WOULD BE EASY TO REPLACE. ALSO SOME WALL LIGHTS WOULD IMPROVE ATMOSPHERE OF ROOM. Bedlights would make this delightful and brilliantly-located hostel even nicer!
