    Love the place. Great value for the money, great people, and perfect location. In an residential neighborhood so not too loud. The place has a great little backyard where you can have a bbq. One downside, it can get hot in the summer in the room and the showers are very small. Overall the perfect stay.

    Helpful staff and a quiet, safe building with everything you need! Lots of storage in the dorms, and bunks are solid wood so they don't clank and rattle. Earl's Court is a good neighborhood to be in, close to all the west London attractions and a fairly short tube journey to the rest.

    Great stay in West London. Only minor but proved a bit problematic was the internet was down. While only temporary, it caused significant challenges to my stay as I didn't have any data plans. Otherwise this would've been a near 10/10.

    Staff was very friendly. Very, very strange double bunk set up in my top floor room. The two wooden bunks are attached with three big round circles cut out so your literally looking straight at the other person in the other bottom bunk. No curtains. The top bunks also have nothing to keep you from practically staring at the other top bunk mate. It definitely needs some divider. Maybe just a curtain. But something. It’s weird! A girl in my room was working and giving some sort of class making a ton of noice.

    Decent hostel I have stayed at before. Good location at Earls Court if you are leaving from Heathrow. Friendly staff. Some long stay residents, some of them a bit tired of chatting to strangers. Decent kitchen and TV room. Mattresses have rubberized covers which are very hygienic, but a bit noisy and uncomfortable. For me, the pluses outweigh the negatives, and I would stay there again. Just letting you know what to expect.
