Liked: The staff were amazingly warm and helpful and the I met some awesome people during my stay. There is a bathroom in every dorm and free breakfast every morning. You can use the safe lockers downstairs to store valuables but I never needed it and there is storage under every bunk. I actually extended my stay several times both because of the hostel and also because of the people I met there. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

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.

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!
