Liked: The room was very clean and the staff were very friendly, each time i had a problem or needed directions they didn't hesitate to help. This hostel is situated perfectly for London visitors, it is just off regent street and offers access to a main tube line only a 5-10 min walk away.

Disliked: If you don't leave stuff out on your bed then your area gets cleaned along with anything there, which caused me to have a few things thrown out which was disappointing. The shower facility is small and offers no where to store your clothes as the entire floor becomes covered when the shower starts.

Liked: Near to Station, shops nearby. Beds were comfortable and shower was good.

Disliked: After booking through Hostel Bookers, we were told on arrival that we would have to pay extra as we were not YHA members. This was especially annoying as we'd booked this location based on the price, so for it to be more then we were originally told was a real disappointment. Staff member who checked us in wasn't very friendly, although the rest of the staff were nice. Not allowed to bring your own alcohol which was another let down. Rooms had plastic flooring which wasn't very nice.

Liked: We were a group of 4, had a room with private bathroom on the 5th floor. The staff was VERY friendly and VERY VERY helpful. Friendly and safe atmosphere,nice location,5' walk from Oxford Street and Great Portland Street Subway station,super market,bank and post office (to exchange money) nearby,quite good value for money,I really enjoyed my stay and I would recommend it to those who visit London for sightseeing and don't really need an expensive relaxation style hotel!

Disliked: We had a problem with the window which didn't open enough so the room smelled a little bit bad even though we had it open all day. What is also a bit annoying (for me it was,I woke up at 7a.m. several times,my friends didn't hear a thing!) is that when our neighbors were closing their door, it made such a loud noise. Finally,no one is cleaning the rooms,they just take the trush out, but how bad can it get?! (NO TOWELS, just to know!)
