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 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!

Liked: Great location, friendly helpful staff, great rates for central london

Disliked: We chose a 15-bed dorm and the room was tiny. In effect you had 5 bunk beds stacked 3 high each with a tiny walkway, barely the width of a bunk bed, down the middle of the room between the bunks. It was smelly, stuffy and with people's suitcases, it was very crowded. Also, while we got 2 clean sheets and a pillow case, the duvet covers aren't changed with each new guest.

Liked: the location is really awesome, its a good base to get around london. curtains around each bed is also a great idea for privacy and to make changing clothes easier :p also, the common areas are pretty big and there is a television showing movies every night. that gave me something to look forward to =D

Disliked: i booked a 21-bed dorm and ended up in a 16-bed dorm. lockers are 1.5 pounds per day so that really adds up. i didnt get a locker and altho nothing untoward happened, it didn't feel very safe at all. also the room is really small so if anyone is really untidy then life is difficult for everyone else. toilet facilities were alright, not terrible but not great either. for the price and the location, the facilities were alright.

Liked: It provides free wifi & entertainment for free. There is this wide screen TV in the living room where you could watch movies and chill out with your friends after a long day. It was pretty cool.

Disliked: The beds in the room was pretty cramp and dirty. Trashes left over by other travelers were not clean. The blanket and pillow cases were not changed either. You are only offered both a bed linen and a pillow case to use.

Liked: The only two things that I really liked about this hostel were the location, very close to a tube stop, and that it was relatively inexpensive.

Disliked: I wonder if I could have found a better hostel for the money, even though this place was pretty inexpensive. The things that I disliked about this hostel are as follows: -overall the place was pretty dirty -the showers either were just dirty and/or the water basically trickled down on you -Staff was not the most friendly/helpful -The complementary breakfast consisted of toast, jelly, and some cereal In the end I felt like the place slightly misrepresented itself in the photos online. On the website it looks to be a fun, clean place with people smiling and having a great time, which I feel was not the case at all.

Liked: The location was fantastic. It really is a stone's throw from Hyde Park, and the surrounding area is all nice. And even though the property is far from luxury, it is well worth the price. I would definitely recommend it to someone who wanted to travel cheap.

Disliked: There was a courtyard that had guests screaming at all hours of the night and very early in the morning. They should either monitor guests more closely or close the courtyard at certain hours. I definitely lost sleep over the noise. Lockers were 1,50 pounds per night. The cost wasn't huge, especially for one night, but that would easily add up during a week long stay,
