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.

Liked: The location

Disliked: It was just a total dump. It smelled bad. People coming in and out all night switching the lights on so no chance of sleep. Beds crammed in tight with little light and ventilation. A Hogarthian experience.

Liked: Location, location, location: Zone 1, Hyde Park close plus all services and amenities close by. Cosmopolitan clientele make it interesting and the staff are very helpful. Only real drawback is it is a bit grubby but they are working on renovations.

Liked: I liked that the beds were sturdy and did not squeak and that there were curtains around each bed (I was in the 20 bed dorm). An improvement from last time is that there was an extension lead in the room allowing for more plug points.

Disliked: Breakfast is a bit feeble compared to other hostels. Tiny bowls of cereal, very thin white bread and plastic utensils.I don't like drinking coffee from a small plastic cup.

Liked: Good value for money if you book early enough, friendly stuff

Disliked: There was renovation during my stay so there were signs "wet paint", workers going up and down... Small rooms (if you don't pay extra for locker in a room, there is not enough space for luggage), too hot (one window in a room for 12, I was waking up sweaty), not enough chicken equipment (no can opener, plastic forks and spoons, only one small microwave)

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: The room, I would advise not to stay in the 16 bed dorm unless you like to party, I was running the Royal Parks Half Marathon the next day and from the hours of 22:00-05:00 others were coming back to shouting and singing. Also 2 people decided to get in on in the bed opposite me. Also I may be wrong but in room 80 I didn't even see a window in there and if there would be a fire, I couldn't see a emergency exit.

Liked: I really like location as it is in the Zone 1 of London. It is very close to underground station Bayswater and Queensway. I like it is not expensive and staff is very friendly and helpful. It is good you can use public computers and you can charge batteries and computers by reception. There is safe place, as anytime is there somebody.

Disliked: I was in room with 20 beds and there is just one window. Air was not very fresh.
