    This was a good place to stay for one night. It’s not the place to go if you’re a traveller looking for a lively social hostel that’s near the centre. The name of the hostel is a little misleading as it’s not central. It’s not hard to get to though and is really close to Notting Hill and Portobello Market. If you have any difficulty walking up and down stairs this is not the place for you. The rooms were clean and comfortable and it’s really quiet. Overall it was good value for the low price.

    Pretty good hostel, felt a bit cramped but it is London. Staff were super helpful and it had one of the best kitchen's we'd seen in a hostel in the UK. Pretty close to everything. You could walk into town if you didn't want to get the tube.

    El personal y el costo es excelente, pero al hostal le hace falta unas mejoras fisicas en las habitaciones. Por lo demas tiene muy buena ubicación a 5 minutos de la transportación publica.

    Booked for bst Hyde park the hostel was on the doorstep. Booked a twin private room, clean fresh linen , sink and fridge. For central London what we paid we got extra for with the sink and fridge not known when booking. This hostel has got some terrible reviews but it did the job nicely for our stay. Would use again due to location and ptice

    This isn’t the best nor the worst hostel I’ve ever stayed at. The toilets were kinda disgusting. The beds were fine and mattresses were nice! The rooms are kinda small and cramped together but the location is really great. Just in the middle of the city centre. Would recommend for a shorter stay.

    The hostel is OK, it's not as bad as many reviews here. However, I was traveling in Southeast Asia before, so my standards for hostels have changed.. There was no soap in the bathroom, no plugs next to the bed, no locker in the room, room was very stuffy. But the staff was nice, the bed was clean, the location is great and price is good for London! It doesn't seem like a good place to meet new people or socialise, but if you just want to sleep in a clean bed and shower, it's completely fine :)

    Got bitten by Bed bugs at this hostel. Only stayed one night and am covered in bites all over me. Don’t risk staying here, it’s not worth it! Not very secure they don’t have lockers available and showers don’t have locks. Tiny kitchen and fridge to share which is too easy for people to walk down and access off the street.

    Honestly, it is not worth your money. It's a dirty, dark and weird place. The kitchen is very small and lacks utensils, the common room is dark, zero atmosphere and there's always people sleeping on the couches. If you're a single girl, think twice before going there. Furthermore, the staff was absolutely unhelpful, no one "knew anything" or "could do anything" about cancelling our reservations or changing our rooms.
