Property Description

A traditional English pub beautifully refurbed for 2011. Now offering double, twin, and shared 4, 6 and 8 bed dorms and some female only rooms for the girls to have exclusively.

Close to all tourist attractions and not forgetting Hyde Park, Oxford St, Soho, Covent Garden, Notting Hill and Portobello markets. Paddington station (Heathrow Express) is two minutes away and there are four Underground rail stations all within a few minutes walk. Getting around London couldn't be easier. Add to that a major hub for London buses and this is the place to base all your London sightseeing in.

We pride ourselves on the safe, clean and fun environment we provide for all our guests at great value for money.

Our Traditional pub (downstairs from the hostel) serves excellent freshly cooked food which you can get at a discounted rate, as our guest, using the free book of vouchers issued to you on arrival. The free breakfast is great, no boring continental breakfast - a full cooked English breakfast served down in the bar every day from 8:00-10:00am and you can get a free juice or tea/coffee with that as well. What a great way to start the day!!

    Great location! Super easy to access from the train and easy access to Hyde Park, Tower of London and other attractions. The included breakfast was definitely a plus. Value was great, considering location and the breakfast. I was only there for a layover between travel days but I gave me what I needed as a place to rest my head. Luggage storage has a small fee but it is understandable as there is not a large space to hold luggage. Rooms and showers/toilets were clean.

    Extremely close to Paddington station so very easy to get to and from airport. Staff were lovely and pub below created good atmosphere. However beds were a bit uncomfortable and shower had very very low pressure.

    Awesome location, easy to get to from Heathrow and close to Hyde park. Not a social hostel because there is no common room-maybe need a hostel table in pub to sit when you want to socialise?? Great proper breakfast included! There is nothing aesthetically pleasing about the dorm I stayed in, there was also a big flight of stairs-no lifts and I had a big suitcase but the staff were very kind and carried my bag up for me. The room was very hot and no fan or aircon so we had to leave a window open.

    The staff were lovely, they work at the pub downstairs and seemed very under staffed. The pub staff take you up to your room and give you bed a tag with your checkout date, i think this needs to be reviewed. Our first night my partner was woken up at 1am by someone telling him he was in his bed even though it was the bed he had been assigned. The door to our room didnt lock unless you used some force, no secure storage for bags. Bathrooms with showers floor always very wet. No laundry facilities

    First, they chaged me from 4mix to 6 without informing beforehand ("it's business, there are many hotels here"). Small cramped room, no AC. Forget about resting: there is a pub downstairs, a very busy road, and a construction in front. Just 2 sockets for the whole room. Cleanliness: minimum. NO common area. Just 3 pros: breakfast, location and budget. This was my 4 time in London, and worst hostel. For the same price you have better options even in the same area. Skip this hostel
