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.

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...
