              The location is super within 5 mints walks to subway station.It is clean ,quiet and spacious.Of course, quite budget.The staff there is helpful.

              Location and price

              Long distance to dorm. Rough and ready nature of the dorm (a hastily converted kitchen or something).

            • Group of friends
              3.2

              I stayed here with a friend for one night however I would not recommend people staying here. The hostel is dirty and has poor facilities (having to through toilet paper in a bin next to the toilet, no lamps working, no handles on any of the chest of drawers and wardrobes, large stains on the carpets). The staff were not friendly and not very keen to have us stay. We highly regret spending 65 pounds for one night in such a bad state hostel.

            • Single
              5.0

              The bed was extremely comfortable.

              The room was a bit grubby. The door would not open fully because it banged up against a chest of drawers.

            • Family with children
              5.8

              This hostel is quite in the city center near the metro Earls court 10 minuts by metro to piccadily.Was very cheap and we had 4 person room.

              Kitchen was dirty and they didnt have any eqipment in this place.The recepcionist was very rude and I coudnt resolve any problem qickly.there are a lot of stairs to get to the room

            • Group of friends
              4.2

              it was not clean, everything its ok since its not expensive but there is no reason not to be clean, and they need more mirrors around.

              location its good

            • Family with children
              7.8

              it is an international place to meet new friends.

              I booked a double room but they gave me an underground room in the first night.

            • Family with children
              5.8

              * Lack of any eating utensils * lack of a 'common room' where one could chat to other tra*vellers; the TV room was small and dominated by watchers of programmes that we wouldn't want very poor shelving in bedrooms and shower area cupboard needed a latch--it wouldn't close or stay shut

              Easy change of room, because we wanted 1 beds low price, central position for transport and sightseeing

            • Group of friends
              5.0

              Unique Quality: The only good thing is the location.

              Horrible hostel! The hostel itself (building 3) had no heating or isolation in the room. Outside temperature was 1°C, so was the room temperature. They promised to get it fixed after the weekend what wasn't done. There was no warm water either. To sum it up: Tacky accommodation, unreliable staff, dirty! There is definitely a need to renovate.

            • Couple
              4.6

              location

              there was not hot water and the room was cold because of broken heating in the winter

              really cheap, great location, clean rooms, friendly staff.

              expensive internet, no free wifi

              Location&Cost

              1. the staff in check in/out room is helpful and friendly, however, the staff for room service(to change sheet) is rude, they came in without knocking at the door and never apologise for the inconvenience nor seemed fell sorry. What is even worse, when they asked you whether you were going to check out, they were actually staring at you with angry like you didn't pay for your stay and took a huge advantage from them.2.Neither the room, the kitchen/cooker nor the bathroom & toilet is clean, though I would't call it a nightmare. On the other side, you don't need to queue to use them.3.the computers in the hall only support English webpage and you cannot add other languages from the system, it is locked.4.It is close to a tube station which is surrounded by many restaurants/fast food or shops.5.this is my first experience to stay in a hostel, and I would not consider it again. .

            • Single
              6.6

              Cheap and cheerful at a central location.

            • Family with children
              5.0

              It's cheap. The location is closed to subway.

              There's no lock for the shower room! So inconvenient for a girl. People are unfriendly. They came in my room in the midnight, and turned on the light and made noises without considering others. The safety of this hostel is a big problem! Don't stay at this hostel unless you are really short of money!

            • Family with children
              8.8

              Staff and and atmosphere

              I stay at the 4 floor and I it was no elevator. It was a litle difficult when you have luggage.
