Liked: I like the fact that us next to the centre and that it has breakfast

Disliked: I didn't like the way the staff threat us , because they weren't helpful and they threat us in a bad and rude way that they shouldn't do because they suppose to be nice and friendly for the people from the outside.Its for that reason that if i had a choice, i would go to my friends house rather than this hostel.

Liked: Location. Bayswater, a nice suburb, easy to find something to eat, not too crowded

Disliked: It's not really a backpacker hostel as it allows mature/old brits & other eastern european who is just arrive and finding work staying here. There are lots of long stayer who's working. Maze like, too crowded. I would not suggest for you to stay here.

Liked: Location. Curtains on beds. Washrooms + showers + kitchen seemed it was cleaned regularly. English girl at reception super sincere and accommodating.

Disliked: Rooms are way WAY to crammed. No room to store luggage. Every time you go back to your room your luggage is moved around to make room for others. Puddle of water leaking for corner everyday then gets to your stuff. You have to go up to reception to ask for key for kitchen equipment, kind of hassle, common rooms, dining also very crammed. Stuffy dorm air even in dead of winter.I cannot imagine how bad it is in the summer.!!!I would stay for 2 nights max if necessary.

City break

Liked: Location, price, kinda friendly staff, free breakfast

Disliked: Uncomfortable beds, almost impossible to make and then climb the bed because of no space in the room, old furniture, dirty walls, dirty bathrooms, cold water in the showers and the doors didn't close well, little space in the common areas, bad WiFi, small amount of plugs to charge your mobile, payed lockers and not possible to leave the luggage after check out...

Liked: Unbeatable location. Decent breakfast for this price!

Disliked: Smelly dorm mates and sleeping on the top bunk (3-bed bunks!) in a 20 person dorm meant there was some tricky climbing. Not recommended if you are not agile.
