Liked: I loved the location. Right in the heart of London and right by Hyde Park, the central park of london. Near there are shopping areas and beautiful houses and museums which made my journey so convenient. The rooms are really clean and the hostel is sooo spacious!

Disliked: The hostel had sooo many people constantly in the common area that sometimes people came in and could not find a convenient seating.

Liked: The hostel was really close to the underground so walking to and from there was no problem. The staff were really friendly and helpful. And there is also free breakfast (bread, cereal, milk) in the mornings which was nice and convenient.

Disliked: The shower curtains in the bathroom don't go all the way down so sometimes water would get all over the floor, especially if the drain is clogged. And like most other hostels in the UK and the rest of Europe, there is no AC so the rooms would get really hot, especially if you're sharing it with a lot of other people.

Liked: this was a brilliant hostel. The staff were great, the atmosphere was perfect for a hostel where you could either relax, party, meet people or hang out. The rooms were not too cramped and everything was clean. Free breakfast, wifi and large common room were all great assets to the hostel. And nice location too! highly recommended!

Disliked: climbing the stairs to the 4th floor was a bit rough lol.

Liked: It was in a good neighborhood, nice and close to Hyde Park and not too far from food and transport

Disliked: While the breakfast was free it wasn't that great, also we had a private room that didn't have any fan/air con so we had to sleep with the window open, which looked onto a dodgy looking alley. There were also no curtains so we pretty much got up at daylight!

Liked: Very nice looking, room was clean and functional, ensuite bathroom was nice too.

Disliked: So many stairs made for many calf muscle workouts. Would be helpful to have wireless access in more than the one large common room, as it was hard to have a private Skype conversation.

Liked: Free wifi, breakfast included, large common room. It's not super close to the tube but there are buses nearby and it's in a nice area.

Disliked: Really noisy on some nights, bathrooms not particularly clean. The stairs to the 5th floor are pretty hideous.

Liked: Pretty much everything you want from a hostel. Easy to locate, walking distance from shops and transport, friendly, clean, safe. Great first hostel to ever stay in. Set the bar high.

Disliked: Not much, maybe a vent in the bathroom would have been good, gets real hot in there.

Liked: Location was convenient.

Disliked: Disorganized. Half hour to start check in. Second night 3 in the morning, there was a mess with some bookings and the reception guy with 2 other people woke up everyone in the room to count people. In the end they've put one person than should be in the room.

Liked: Busy but good feel about the place. Good value. Liked the free breakfast. Convenient location. Ensuite bathroom convenient.

Disliked: Dorm room floor needed cleaning (should be swept or vacuumed every day but wasn't done in the 2 nights/3 days I was there). 2pm earliest check-in is too late (why not midday? - that's still 2 hrs after check-out). Wirless was hopeless - didn't work for any of us with iPads or smart phones (but did work for people with laptops and netbooks), and the problem got no interest from staff.

Liked: 1. It is close to 2 Tube stations (10-15 min walk), both on the Piccadilly line which runs direct from the airport so no changing trains etc. required. 2. Rooms are generally clean (except my last night when the only room available was a 12-bed dorm) but toilets were not clean. 6-bed dorm was clean 3. There is lock-able container (not a safe) in the 6-bed dorm, not in the 12-bed one. There is a safe at the reception but you have to pay 1.5 per day to use it. 4. Most of the staff are nice but some make it feel sometimes like a pick-up scene out-and-out which, depending on your interest, can be a good or bad thing.

Disliked: 1. The biggest negative is the check-in, check-out process. Check out is at 10 AM and you have to move all of your belongings and move it to the luggage room which is all the way in the basement. Also, the fact that the rooms are booked quite a bit, means that if you stay for anything longer than 1-2 days, you will be repeating the above process every 1 or 2 days. Also, since rooms can be on 4th or 5th floor (i.e. 5th or 6th for americans), that is a LOT of going up/down the stairs. I happened to get the same room for 4 nights, an event which is very rare here and was described by one of the guys here as 'miraculous' 2. Breakfast is cereal and toast only (which may/may not be a problem, depending on where you are coming from) 3. Because there is so much traffic going in/out every day, meeting other people if you are a solo traveler can be a problem.
