  • Two friends & I shared a three person private ensuite room. Very small for sure, but as far as hostels go very nice. It was a good atmosphere, seemed secure, and was definitely a cheap stay option. The biggest problem was that the shower wasn't hot for a couple showers, but that's probably because it was very late, around 1am. Otherwise it was good althought small. The breakfast was just toast, Nutella, jam, butter, some cereal and milk, and some tea. Location is great, super close to Bayswater!

  • This was NOT a good place. There was a problem with the payment, which due to the hostel´s bank bounced back, and the staff at the hostel were hostile and threatening towards us even though this was not our fault. The facilities were run down, and the included "breakfast" a joke - there was not even cheese. The fan in the 12 bed dorm, with triple bunk beds was broken but the staff did nothing about it. There were no security lockers in the twin bedrooms and the beds were too short, inconvenient.

  • very bad! it is very small: no space where to have breakfast, the common space just does not exist, so do not even think to have a chat with the other hostel-mates. The rooms are dirty, very small and the bathroom does not exist. I saw little animals all around the hostel mainly cockroach in the bathrooms. You have to pay for everything such as locks. Too expensive for what they offer: one dirty bed. 4 plugs per room of 8 people. I always travel in hostels...this was the worst experience ever

  • There was not enough space in the rooms for people and bags. The top bunks didn't have any cover from the light in the room so people turning it on and off constantly woke me up. There are not nearly enough outlets. The beds are stacked 3 high. There's no atmosphere at all but it was cheap and toast, cereal and tea were free for breakfast. Overall a pretty depressing place to stay but the location so close to the tube is hard to beat.

  • Good hostel, but an italian girl got her wallet stolen inside the room. You have to pay 5 pounds for towels.

  • I hated this hostel. No wifi (had to steal from hotel next door), no age limit or family restrictions, small common areas for over 400 guests, rude staff, and I got locked in one of their showers (apparently a frequent occurrence). They charge you for lockers (£1.5/day as well. The only positives were the supermarket nearby and location to the tube.

  • All in all it was OK, but main disadvantages were showers and breakfasts. Showers have so poor ventilation that in combination with very hot water it is no longer shower but a sauna. Breakfasts could have been more diversified. Cereals and toast with jam are good, but I suppose most people were lacking some meat/ham and dairy products such as cheese, eggs. Big plus for staff - always on post, very helpful 24/7 and always with good attitude. :)

  • Booking this hostel will ruin your trip!Although the staff was nice and the location and surroundings are good, I had a terrible night here. If you enter the hall to the rooms you see how old the place really is. My room was hot with bad aircirculation, the bed was too small, there was a box hanging above my head on which I bumbed my head everytime I slightly moved it. Next to my bed were very noisy waterlines.The toilets and showers were dirty and old and very busy. Renovate the place!!!
