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 staff is very friendly, also the atmosphere is very friendly! Location is excellent because u are a minute walk away from Hyde park and a minute walk away from underground station with a direct line to the city (Circle line, Central line). I felt realy secur, also u have the option of buying safe for your possession! It is definitely worth of what u pay.

Disliked: Not much to dislike, maybe just the cleanliness of bathroms, but that cant be prevented because if 16 people (a lot of them male) use two bathroms it gets dirty very fast, but you also have bathrooms downstarirs that are spotless!

Liked: Location was good, really close to the subway and several restaurants and supermarkets; beds had curtains which was great for a little more privacy and the rooms were relatively clean

Disliked: Other than the rooms everything was really dirty, toilets and showers were awful; staff was really not friendly; you have to pay extra for all the safes and luggage room; internet lounge is really small you can hardly fit and there is no internet elsewhere; breakfast is kind of bad, coffee and tea are the worst ever and then you only had crappy bread. Pay cash, conversion rates are a rip off really unbelievable

Liked: It's really close to everything, you have keys to get into your room, so it feels safe there. Also the area around is really nice. The staff are really helpful, if you need directions or want to extend your stay, like i did and they arranged it for me to stay in the same bed hich was really good. There is lots of toilets and showers so you dont have to wait in line. Also the free internet and cereal and toast for breakfast saves you money which is good too. Decent beds.

Disliked: some of the showers are a bit poor, you have to press the button every 30 seconds, and the lights go off so you have to stick your arm out and wave it around to activae the light, but there are plenty of other showers without this problem!

Liked: great location, easy to find even if you are first time in town- you can literally see it from the metro exit. cause checking in is possibleas early as 13:00, it really gives you the chance to rest- day or night- the beds all have curtain, so noone will disturb you. pretty simple setup, but everithing you might need is there.

Disliked: it was all right

Liked: Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and secure and beds had blinds to block away the rest of the world when needed!

Disliked: No lifts and the staircases were a nightmare. I always saw little kids running around the place for some weird reason, too...

Liked: nothing

Disliked: 1. The odour, it's smelly and there's no ventilation 2. It was DIRTY and we never saw anybody cleaning. 3. There's no lift and our room was on the "2nd floor" but it was more like a 4th floor. 4. The showers were awful. Dirty, uncomfortably small and few for so many people. And most the time they didn't even work. 5. The toilets were disgustingly dirty and messy. 6. The plugs didn't work and there were only 2 for 12 people. 7. The rooms were really crowded and there was no room to open your suitcase. 8. The wifi connection didn't work. 9. There's nothing for you to cook in the kitchen and you have to pay a deposit and ask for the kitchen utensils at the reception if you want to cook but they never have what you need. We asked for 4 forks and 4 knives and we got 1 fork, 1 knife and 3 spoons. Forget about asking for cups or glasses. 10. There were insects in our 12-beds room and we couldn't open the only window. 11.There were lots of rubbish, lost objects and forgotten clothes piling up behind the beds that nobody from the hostel bothered to clean or thow away.

Liked: clean linen

Disliked: Everything! It's a huge hostel with a lot of rooms with a lot of beds. The rooms are too small.There are only 3 showers outside the dorms and like 100 people staying in, and they are dirty and smell. The showes and bath are mixed, they don't have 1 for female and 1 for male. They charge you for the lockers and the wifi socks, it dosn't work.

Liked: The location is the best!!!! no matter how tired u are, u still manage to get back to the hostel. It is less then 1 minute walk! I will miss this one... cos no matter what time i travel, as long the Circle and Districk Line still available, i can go back to hostel. There also hv a bus stop just infront of the hostel but i never use it. Is it for bus Number 70, Invernes Terrace station.

Disliked: not for ppl who love silent environment or dont like to climb. One of the room i stay need to climb until 3 level bed....

Liked: The receptionists were very cool about coming home at any hour! They organised a night out on Saturday that gave us a great insight into a proper night out in London...and even though you had to pay for a lot(towels, lockers, safes, etc.) everything still turned out to be very cheap.

Disliked: The room was quite cramped and there was only one mirror for 8 girls!
