    I wish I could’ve stayed longer. It was a great experience. I got there way too early in from an awful overnight flight and they were very kind and accommodating. They answered all my questions and were super friendly. I never had to wait for a bathroom, which were all really clean. I also like the back patio.

    I really enjoyed my stay in this hostel! Everyone is approachable making the place very homey. The cleanliness of the area is remarkable most especially the toilets. (5 stars with this) The bunk beds are sturdy and won't make any noise when you try to climb on it in the middle of the night. The bed and the pillow was indeed a memory foam! Very comfy! and lastly, I feel safe during my stay.

    Would totally stay here again! I felt very safe as a solo female traveller. Very close to the Earl's Court Tube station, clean facilities, and friendly staff. The provided breakfast was nothing fancy but great for what it was. Great price for being so close to central London.

    Great staff who were friendly, warm and dealt with any questions or issues immediately. Lounge atmosphere was always chilled and friendly and has a fab kitchen and dining area. Perfect size of hostel so good vibe but never felt overly busy in any of the common areas. Great location with easy walk to Chelsea, Holland Park Kensington and Hyde Park with tube station a few minutes walk away. Great pubs and restaurants plus lots of supermarkets

    This was my first solo trip and I was feeling very anxious. As soon as I got to this hostel, those worries melted away because it felt so safe and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The hostel is quite cozy. Not particularly large. It seemed like generally an older crowd stayed there and the quality of people that were there were respectful and friendly. The location was great! A quick 5 minute walk to the tube and a quick ride to major stations. Would definitely book again!

    I stayed in a private room with an en suite bathroom, and it was comfortable. The room was heated and had a separate little heater provided, which was helpful (an extra blanket would've been ideal though). From my room I could hear the noise from other hostel areas -- that wasn't so bad, but if you're a very sensitive sleeper it might be a different story. I didn't use any of the common areas (trying to keep to myself cause of covid etc), so I can't review these. The location is excellent.

    Stayed for a Chelsea game, great value and location. Atmosphere was great, in the evening in the TV room for a few drinks. Room was clean along with the facilities. Staff were down to earth extremely friendly, will definitely be back.
