Liked: The people who worked here were very friendly and I liked the easy access to the underground. There were many restaurants and cafes in the area which was also very nice.

Disliked: There is no real relaxing area for hostel guests. Yes, it is possible to hang out in the pub on the ground floor but it can get very crowded and noisy - not a place to unwind.The bunk beds are usual, but it isn't possible to sit up on the bottom bunk and with no common relaxing area it isn't relaxing to unwind at the hostel. The internet is only accessible in the pub and on the first floor. Most of the doors are on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors. There is a small area with 3 stools for people to sit at to use the internet on the first floor but more often than not you had to sit on the floor or on the stairs to try to get access. The internet connection was very poor! If you were able to get connected, you would get kicked off fairly quickly. It was very frustrating! With the pub being so noisy and crowded, it wasn't conducive to being online or trying to Skype. The showers were very clean but you can't alter the temperature in the shower. Frequently it would be too hot for comfort. After your shower, you would be sweating because it was more like a steam bath than a refreshing shower. Check out is at 10 am (which is fine) but if your flight is in the afternoon, you have to pay to leave your bag. Even for an hour or two!There is no kitchen or even a microwave to use so you must eat out all your meals (you can age cereal and toast free for breakfast at the hostel) which gets quite expensive - even with a discount in the pub! The facilities offered and the challenges faced make this hostel over priced. If you have a very small bag and are only going to stay a night or two and want easy direct access to Heathrow, then this hostel is fine. If you have a bigger bag or are staying longer than a night or two, trying to budget your money by cooking a meal here and there, want reliable internet access, or control over the temperature of your shower, then I would suggest you find a different hostel.
