Grahame Weston thinks…

"The location of the hostel was good for the 2 main parks in that area(Hyde park and Kensington park). Local shops were near-by and it took only 30 minutes to walk to Oxford street from the hostel."

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.
