Liked: The Hostel was nice, not the best place for meeting people, and fairly clean. The Kitchen is said to be the main place to meet people, but it is mostly just the staff just hanging out in there, breakfast the basics, and the rooms are good enough. The showers are a bit small and tend to get then entire bathroom wet in an ensuite room. The location is very near bayswater and queensway station which connects you anywhere, and the it is a 2 minute walk to kensington gardens which is a great place to hang out on a sunny day. Overall in overpriced London it's a decent place to stay.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: The staff were all helpful and easy to get along with. Actually people here are just really friendly! Breakfast was decent, good atmosphere to chill or do whatever. Location was great - central and close to shops and tube! Wi-fi is not free but you'd still pay less overall than a few places around the corner!

Disliked: Wi-fi has its moments when its a bit slow. Rooms can get a bit stuffy, but you just open the window and it's all good!

Liked: Very good location. Nice staff, good facilities (including wifi, tv room, kitchen, and laundry)

Disliked: Toilets were tiny. And the shower in the shared room of 4 had nothing but a curtain (which didn't close completely) to block you from the rest of the room - you were showering pretty much in front of everyone in your room. There was one shared shower a floor above mine but this was often busy.

Liked: A lot of fun and a great location in zone 1. Really close to Hyde park where one can just chill, shops and restaurants.

Disliked: Stairs!!! The luggage room is up several flights of stairs, and the key cards don't always work so you have to walk all the way back down to reception and up again just to get in your room! Wish the wifi was free!

Liked: The location is great, the staff are very friendly and helpful. Beds are pretty comfortable, and there are lockers underneath them, which is nice (though some of them squeak!). Well-equipped kitchen--we made dinner a couple times and it got pretty busy down there. Hot showers. The provided breakfast is pretty basic, but it's good enough. I'll definitely stay here again.

Disliked: You have to pay for internet. Most rooms are up several flights of stairs--no lift. The place could be a little cleaner, but I've definitely seen much worse.

18 April 2012

Liked: Location is good. Rooms not overly huge and weird.

Disliked: This place is poorly staffed by people who seem to have no idea at all what is going on. They will also charge you for every little bit of money they can get out of you- 5 quid to buy (not rent) a towel, 5 quid for a day of WiFi (which you can't actually get in the rooms, btw. So how useful is that?). Washing machine, half of the safes, wifi didn't actually work, all in a 12 hour span. Luggage room had been locked with a padlock that no one at the hostel had keys for. List could continue- but this place was a disorganized nightmare- I would never stay here again.
