Cool location, in a quite pleasant and central neighborhood, just few steps north from kensington gardens and hyde park and very close to feisty notting hill.. But, above all, there are three subway stops just a few minutes away! The staff of this hostel is really friendly and keen to make the guests at their ease... The room I have been in, was not huge but nice and the bathroom quite confortable with a large shower. The prices, all in all, quite affordable, seen the average prices in the city

Bathrooms weren't always clean - but if you told staff, they would be clean them almost immediately. Staff were great, very helpful. Always events going on. Common areas were nice.

Normal London hostel. Not bad but not great. Small rooms but comfy beds. The sink in the room was annoying especially because it was beside my bed and whenever someone used it they would splash me.

The place was dusty. The staff was great, the location was great, but the wheezing we all experienced was a bit alarming. The bathrooms are also shared between some floors which made the bathroom a bit more bleh that others. As far as experience in London, the hostel hosted us nicely.

Rooms weren’t clean. Horribly cramped and everything was coated in disgusting levels of dust. Only two toilets one of which was clogged and out of use. Two showers and neither were ever clean. Staff were always out the front smoking and blocking the entrance.

The hostel overall was really nice for a good price. You can't expect crazy facilities when you pay 25 euro. Megan from Australia who worked the front desk was super cool!!!

Second time in the hostel and had a great time! The staff is just wonderful and helpful and is very friendly and fair. The charity breakfast is a wonderful idea, I would recommend the staff to make sure on check in time to make sure that people understand what it is, so they'll have a coin with them and won't be surprised about it. An extremely good hostel with great people around - next time I'll be sure to come again!

The location of this hostel is absolutely beautiful. Bayswater is a wonderful area filled with great shops and very close to Hyde Park. The rooms are actually far smaller than the pictures would make it seem. The bathrooms are divided into two smaller rooms, a toilet and a shower. Both of which are extremely small. And although they say that they clean them 4 times a day, they still have a distinct musty smell to them. Definitely not the cleanest place. Everyone was very noisy.
