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!!

    I stayed in a 4 bed room and it was reasonably clean and comfortable. Surprised by the fridge/kettle etc in the room. It is in a noisy area (convenient to Paddington though!). Definitely need earplugs (they will provide, I believe!) Cooked breakfast included in the bar and discounts on food. Staff were really nice. I’d stay again.

    Very Good

    Asha and the staff I spoke to at the complimentary breakfast were very kind. I appreciate that this property has the beds already made and provides towels. The location is so close to the Underground and Paddington. Having said that, the building is old, the stairs are rickety, the locks (from dorms to toilets to lockers) need work. Luckily the other ladies in my room were good enough to open the door for me when my key kept sticking. Bring your earplugs and a lock or two.

    In a really good location. Staff were very nice and helpful. Rooms a little small and shared bathrooms with both men and women. Breakfast included was awesome!

    Booked my stay here because of relatively high reviews. Was surprised at the condition of the bathrooms and bedrooms, not as pleasant as I was expecting. Good location however, and difficult to find decent, cheap accommodation in London, so is probably about as good as can be expected given the price. Doubt I would book in a return visit however.

    Got there about 10pm and put my bag in my room, only 1 other person in the room. Went downstairs to get a beer then went up to bed. Next day I was working and went to get my sunglasses only to find that they had been stolen. Everything else was still in my bag, including the case for the sunglasses. Called the hostel and said nothing they could do as my own responsibility for leaving bag in room.

    There was no hot water when we used the showers, and it was pretty late at night so it was not because everyone had just showered. So, it was very disappointing to not have warm water. The bathrooms were coed, which is fine but almost all of the stalls locks were broken, so you couldn't keep the door closed, which is incredibly uncomfortable in a coed bathroom. The bathrooms also appeared dirty and hallways were messy. The mattress had springs and was very uncomfortable. Good location for trains

    Contacted both Prode of Paddington and hostel world about my stay which included a cockroach infestation in our room but never heard back from pride of Paddington. Website told they couldn’t give me a refund and it was up to the independent hostel. Terrible customer service from pride of Paddington!
