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!!

    We stayed in the female 4-bed bathroom included room, and it was a pleasant surprise to see that it had a microwave, a mini-fridge, sink, and cutlery and plates to use. That helped at night when we got back tired and hungry, with our microwavable dinners. The room is spacious, the shower small, but that's to be expected. The hostel is also a pub, and they serve breakfast there. They have 4 different kinds of breakfast that you can choose from. At night, it's a lovely place to have a pint.

    The reception lady was lovely and the breakfast is very good. It could be cleaner, but it’s not dirty. Definitively I’ll repeat in my next trip to London!

    Overall I was quite happy with my stay, but when I tried to check in, the two staff that were there couldn't find my booking and basically told me I had to wait until the manager came in on the next shift, which I wasnt happy about as i had somewhere to be. But the manager Jackson, was really lovely and fixed everything up for me, and made me feel really at home. The most pleasant surprise was the free towels, and the shampoo, soap etc that came free. The room was more like a hotel room.

    It was a bed above a pub- simply, but exactly what I needed. Great service from the staff and the morning breakfast was delicious.

    It was alright. Having a nice pub/restaurant downstairs was a big plus. My only real issue is that the beds were horribly uncomfortable- you could feel all the springs in the mattress. I actually woke up after the first night with a bruise on my side/ribcage from the metal in the mattress. We had to cover the beds with extra blankets to even be able to sleep, and didn't get a good night's sleep the whole time we were in London. But for the price I suppose that's what you get!
