Liked: Staff were friendly and the hostel was easy to find.

Disliked: I booked to stay in a 5 bed girls' room but when I checked in the room actually had space for 9 people - as the room was not full this wasn't really an issue and did not affect my enjoyment of the property.

16 January 2012

Liked: The location. The fact that it was on sale and so cheap was the only reason I stayed there, I would NEVER pay what they usually charge. The beds have curtains around them (but no lights which is stupid)

Disliked: Everything else. Its absolutely disgusting, dirt everywhere. The decor is dingy and horrible. The internet only works in a tiny cramped room that is always full. There's no heating in the dorms. The breakfast is really poor and the hygiene standards are extremely low. The bathrooms are filthy and there aren't enough of them, and no space or places to hang anything in them. Half the showers don't work. The staff are unhelpful, chatting on the phone with people and not even acknowlegding you. There are hardly any powerpoints in the rooms and there's also hardly any space. It feels incredibly seedy too. For some reason a much larger than usualpeprcentage of the other people staying had terrible manners too-things like turning on the lights when they come in at 2AM etc.

Liked: The helpfull staff, the central location close to the Queensway and Bayswater underground stations and Hyde Park.

Disliked: The breakfast is lacking alternatives to toast with butter and sugar or jam or cornflakes with milk. The lack of water pressure in the showers made it very difficult to wash your hair. Also the descent from upper beds would have been easier with a railing.

Liked: The location next to Hyde Park in Bayswater is lovely and it is only a shortish walk into Oxford St. Also the curtains around beds are a very good idea they make you feel far more private.

Disliked: The kitchen had one cup, one chopping board, a saucpan, a fry pan and about three plates total equipment; other stuff was available from reception if you were prepared to leave a deposit but this was a little annoying. Staff were rather lackluster.

Liked: Good location - near Hyde Park and the Tube (Central, Circle and District line). You've also got 2 supermarkets (Sainsbury's and Tesco) and all the main food chains (McDonald's, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Starbucks ..)

Disliked: The walls are extremely thin, so it's difficult to fall asleep at night, because you can hear everything.

Liked: Nothing (it was that bad)

Disliked: NEVER GOING BACK! - Staff very unfriendly - hotel manager even more unfriendly (and rude). Most of guests are unhappy and look for another accommodation. there are no plates or silvery in the kitchen (you get those against a deposit at the reception) - You also only get a hairdryer against a deposit at the reception - plugs only in the hallways - Kitchen dirty - old fridges always full - They let people gather in front of the hotel - so it's extremely loud in the rooms looking to the front of the hotel. I travel a lot and this was the first time I had such a negative experience.
