Customer review

02 August 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: This is a really excellent hostel, it was recently renovated so it's really clean and well put-together. The staff were super helpful, there is always something going on in the guestroom i.e. movies, people hanging out, and there is a good choice for breakkie. It is a shame that the hostel is not immediately near a tube station, however the bus services around the corner in front of Albert Hall are so useful. Not to mention that the Natural History Museum, the Victoria & Albert Museum, Hyde Park and Harrods/Knightsbridge are all walking distance, which is preferrable to the stinky tube. I believe the hostel should promote the bus services in order to get to the hostel , there are a few that run from Victoria Station which are more direct , which makes it easier to get to the hostel rather than lugging your backpack from Gloucestor Rd tube station if there is an alternative!

Liked: Nice hostel but many floors and NO ELEVATOR- so bringing up any heavy luggage up steeper stairs is a workout!!! Also, it is a FULL 15 min walk to nearest tube station! Pay a taxi to pick you up to bring to hostel! If you get up early and will be gone all day, the walk wont be as big of a deal but it is pretty far! Just a warning! However, very nice street, beautiful area... just not an easy location to stay.

15 July 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It was clean enough. The location was very good, close to the science and natural history museums. The building is very nice and the staff friendly. Only, there was no elevator and the staircase is very long! The lavatories in the bathrooms were really small, so when you washed your face, all the water spilled to the floor...disaster if you share with others. Also, it wasn't a good place to meet people, everyone minded their own business. But, other than that, it was pretty acceptable.

Liked: The location is excellent, next to Hyde Park, close to tube, university, a number of pubs. The hostel is neat and tidy and has a fine living room, but there's no bar. Breakfast is rather small. All together we found this an excellent place to stay and explore London but not a great place for hanging out.

Liked: This hostel has a great location - it's an easy walk from the tube, even with luggage. The building is beautiful and everything is clean and well-kept. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. They only have a couple safety lockers for rent and they fill up quick, so bring a luggage lock for valuables or plan to carry them with you. All in all, a great place to stay!

Liked: the building is beautiful, situated in an amazing location, just at the entrance of hyde park. the rooms are big and clean. there´s a wonderful common area with sofas, computers and television where you can also rent a film and watch it. the kitchen is big, clean and full equipped. i met a lot of great people in that hostel, probably the best hostel experience of my life (and i´ve been in A LOT of hostels, so far!).

02 June 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I liked the old style building. What I did not like was the fact that the only toilet shared with 12 people was not cleaned every day. Every morning you had to wait for at least 15 minutes to take a shower and the floor in the shower room was not clean. Otherwise a very nice place, good staff, great breakfast compared to the price/night and great location just next to Hyde Park. I didn't mind walking 7minutes to tube.
