Liked: I was treveling alone as a girl and I felt totally safe. The Staff is super nice and always there for you. The rooms and facilities are clean, the breakfast was good. It's not just a party hostel but if you're up for that you'll find people to go out with. They have big safes under the beds where even my backpack fitted in. And it's so close to the city centre/ Oxford Street and Hide Park. I hade an awesome time and would stay there again.

Disliked: We only had 2 plugins in a 6 people room, but that's not a real big problem.

Liked: bonne qulité des lits, localisé dans un quartier très bourgeois ac beaucoup d'hôtels autours...juste en face de hyde park, parfait pour un footing matinal, auberge calme...cuisine très bien équipée...public de voyageurs jeunes (16-25) et pas trop fêtards.

Disliked: il faut pas demander grand chose au staff de l'hotel :) il sont très gentils .... mais très à l'ouest :) et pas très organisés.. ou s'adresser uniquement à Pat, qui est le seul à comprendre que, par exemple, quand on réserve une chambre pour 4 avec des amis, on veut 1/ être dans une chambre pour 4 et 2/ avec ses amis dans la chambre.....et aussi que quand on est 3 un jour puis 2 le lendemain...on ne veut pas faire un nouveau check-in / check out...

Liked: Excellent location.

Disliked: I was on the 5th floor and had a big bag. Had to carry it upstairs. It really didn't bother me, but I can see how it can annoy other peple. Aside from that, the hostel is very comfortable -for people who like staying in hostels-, the location is perfect, close to Notting Hill and close to the underground. Staff was helpful. I'd recommend it.

Liked: The location was okay, within a short distance from Queensway tube station. Bayswater station was closed, but this is obviously not the hostel's fault.

Disliked: Pretty much everything? This hostel is awful. Rude and incompetent staff, facilities were dirty, cramped and falling apart. Rooms were stuffy and poorly maintained and I felt unsafe the entire time I was there. No attempt was made to regulate guest behaviour which may not be a problem for some, but I don't know many who would be keen on walking in on public masturbation. The provided breakfasts had extremely limited selection and the kitchen is not always open. The "secure" luggage compartments are not secure at all, and I had an incident of my compartment being opened with no difficulty whatsoever while I slept. I left a day early, and it tainted my whole London experience. The worst part of my UK trip.
