    Great hospitality, friendly staff. Location is close to London metro which is super convenient. Neighbourhood also has many food options plus grocery shop literally around the corner. Definitely recommended!

    Simply perfect. The staff: amazingly friendly, welcoming and helpful from the moment you enter and throughout your stay. Rooms: clean, well organised (big lockers and extra space for your luggage) and comfortable beds. Facilities: fully equipped kitchen (ideal for people traveling on a budget) and clean bathrooms Location: near the tube station and grocery stores (including 24/7 Tesco) Atmosphere: super friendly, peaceful. I couldn't wish for a better place for my (extended) stay!

    Comfortable beds, room a little on the small side if you are tall! But great location, staff and facilities.

    kitchen opening times are far too restrictive for no obvious reason - especially important since the only other common room is a small, dark TV room. Door entry keypad is unclear (especially in darkness and anyway difficult for the short-sighted !)

    I didn't stay there for long, but it is a nice place to stay for a while. This hostel seemed pretty calm and is located near a grocery store and a few restaurants, which make it easy to get food. The bunkbeds were sturdy (not clingy metal like most hostels) and the mattress was confortable.

    Toilets were very clean. Kitchen was cleaned 2x a day and fully-equipped (included a professional stovetop and an oven, though it didn't work very well). Free breakfast was good (comprised muesli, cornflakes, bread, butter, jam). Staff were friendly. Location: great, within reach of the city centre. Downside is that the interior is slightly old and you have to put on your own bedsheets. No privacy curtains, so your bed light could wake the other travellers. Hostel attracts an older crowd too.

    Great location. Right around the corner from Earl's Court station which makes it easy to get to anywhere in the city. Staff were lovely and very helpful. Room was comfortable and had everything we needed.

    Very Good

    Nice place, doesn’t seem to attract the same crowd as other hostels in London do. From the people I’ve met, it seems it’s rather used as a base when looking for an apartment or job than by travelers who spend a few days in the city. Not necessarily bad, but that kind of also means that atmosphere-wise it is pretty dead in the evenings. Wasn’t really the place for me, still though, security- and facility-wise it was a good.

    Internet is good but it needs a working station. Also cleaning in the rooms should improve.
