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.

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.

Liked: I liked the combination of the good location and the very good price, and the fact that linnen and breakfast was included in the price.

Disliked: The light in the ceiling didn't work and there was a small cockroach in the bathroom, but considering what I had paid to stay there I wasn't too worried.

12 February 2012

Liked: Location and Staff

Disliked: For a private room as expensive as a hotel but nowhere near as good. Room was not clean- rubbish under bed and could not drink tea or coffee as mugs filthy. Bunk beds were bit of dissappointment in a private room. All things you might expect in dorms but would expect more in private rooms. There were plenty of other options of hotels in this price range that I would go for next time.

Liked: great location, overall very clean and I also like the cosy atmosphere in the lounge area. Great value too.

Disliked: Some Staff appeared to lack basic cumstomer service skills but generally friendly. My key card kept on failing to work so had to be re-swiped at reception each time which was rather annoying since my room was on the 6th floor!!

26 December 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The atmosphere was just great. Very relaxed. Me and my friend could sit in the stairwell on our floor watching a movie (while wrappe din our duvets) in the middle of the night, and rather than people walking by saying "please move" or sighing we got smiles and comments of "you're just adorable". Close enough to two good tube stations and several restaurant and grocery shops.

Disliked: I don't know really. Obviously quite spartan but it's that kind of hostel and that kind of price range. I've paid more for worse so... free wifi would've bene nice but you can't get everything.
