    Beds were some of the best in a hostel, sturdy frame and comfy mattress. Having to make own bed wasn't convenient due to the time I arrived and trying to be considerate of roommates, but understandable.

    Amazing location, easy to and from airport and downtown. Nice staff. Clean rooms with safes in locker (was a nice surprise). The only complaint is the laundry was very expensive. I would stay here again when in London.

    Excellent location near Earl Court tube station, pubs, restaurants, and markets. I had a private room for nine days on the top floor. Quiet- I slept like a baby. Good recommendations from the staff on things to see. Glad I stayed here.

    Really pleasant stay ! Great location, in a quiet street but everything nearby (Tube, grocery store, restaurants, pub,...), the staff is really nice, the room was super small but clean and beds are comfortable. It is a really quiet hostel, so not the best place if you want to party all night or meet people (but it was not our goal).

    Had trouble entering the hostel due to the key entry and no one being at the front desk lol. Everything was fairly smooth after that. I’d recommend if for no other reason because of how clean it was and nice the staff was.

    Had a great stay here, rooms were very clean and the staff were nice. Was in a great location and really close to the underground, most of our stops were in one zone too which made getting around cheap and easy.
