Liked: Great location to Oxford St and Great Portland St tube stations. The rooms are clean and never had to cue up for showers whilst I was there.

Disliked: Wifi is quite expensive there and you can only use it in the lobby and kitchen area which is rather inconvenient.

Liked: Location was great. Oxford Street 6-7min walk, Tube stations and groceries very close by. Quite quiet, very clean, kitchen downstairs was good (toasters, microwaves, fridges for your own food and so on... Simple but modern design. Very good value for your money! Stayed for a week on 4th floor room 407 for 8 people.

Disliked: Can't really think of anything. Will stay there also next time when visiting London.

Liked: Comfortable, secure rooms with large suitcase lockers and sink in-room. 24-hr kitchen and bar open until 11pm nightly in hostel for drinks. Well located, 5 min walk from 3 tube stations.

Disliked: Bathrooms needed cleaning and deodourizing. WC on 3rd and 4th floors smelled bad. WC on 5th floor much cleaner and nicer. Internet VERY expensive at GBP 1 per 20 min. Dorm rooms were very clean though.

Liked: Location! Really nice area of London and not too far away from everything. Amazingly clean and spacious rooms. 3 generations of our family stayed here and they all loved it!

Liked: The staff were so friendly and everyone that I shared the dorm with were also really nice. The facilities were clean and it was really good value for money!

Disliked: As I was on the 5th floor, the lift took forever to arrive as it seemed to stop on each floor even when no one else was getting on. That's all!

Family Holiday

08 April 2011

Liked: Had a lively corner where we could watch soccer

Disliked: 1)Kitchen was very inaccesible 2)Lifts were extremly slow and buttons were insensitive. We had to press it for more than 50 times before the light comes up. the lift traveled like a tortoise. 3) For 28 pounds a night for 2 people. We could top up 2 pounds each and stay in a B&B hotel. Sometimes B&B hotel allows 3 people in a room. Then it would be cheaper to check into a B&B hotel than the hostel. Bunk Beds were extremly small 4) No wifi in rooms. Wifi was not even free 5) Toilet was very dirty and there wasnt something that seperated the shower from the rest of the toilet. Everytime we bath the toilet would get flooded.
