Liked: Very central, breakfast included, TV room, reasonable room rates

Disliked: the bedsheets don't get changed very often, I had some suspicious stains on my one, which I found very disgusting. In general the rooms seemed a little bit unattended in terms of cleanliness. They had a lot of things to offer: padlocks, umbrellay, adaptors, towels ... but they charged extra for each of it :( The showerrooms were very tiny and wet after showering. this wouldnt be a problem if they had some shelves to put the personal belongings on, but they only had some hooks, which was very annoying...

Liked: Central location, helpful staff, nice atmosphere in lounge and kitchen.

Disliked: Matchbox-sized room, filthy toilets, two showers and two toilets for an entire floor of around 20 people, bad ventilation, old facilities, no secure place to lock stuff in the room (except for extra charge at the security boxes provided). Plus you gotta pay extra for almost everything.

Liked: Staff are super friendly (probably cos they're all Australian). The hostel is in a good location, just a 5-min walk from Pimlico Station as advertised. As a foreign solo female traveller, I found the hostel to be very accommodating and inviting and the area around the hostel itself is safe to walk around at night. The rooms and beds are fairly clean. Showers were hot at all times and didn't have to wait as long as they're avoided during the rush hours (early morning and early evening).

Disliked: Sucks if you're located on the top (4th) floor because the stairs seem to just go on forever!

Liked: Close proximity to Victoria station.

Disliked: It simply lacks character. Its sister hostel Astor Kensington is far more better. Some of the staff was marvelous, some was horrible. I really disliked notices and numerous Dos and Don'ts posted all over the place and this is something that pretty much ruins the atmosphere.

Liked: Hostels is quite average hostel. Location is good. I did like the clean toilets and showers without ques. Staff had always time to answer my questions.

Disliked: There was no big lockers where to put photographing gear without unpacking the bag. Small safes they have, and cases under the bed with a padlocking option. Hostels felt safe anyway and camera gear didn't disappear even if it wasn't locked anywhere.
