Liked: Close to tube, close to Hyde park. Free breakfast is nice.

Disliked: Stairs, very noisy from street and broken window, noisy bunks and lockers underneath were very loud when trying to access early in the morning. Bathroom not very clean, no soap in bathroom. Kitchen was nice to use if you bring your own food, but it was very very messy and no clean dishes later in he evening as other travellers did not clean up after themselves. Lounge was ok but always busy and nowhere to sit.

Liked: Pretty much everything, the hostel is a nice and characteristic old style house, there are lots of youth staying there, it has free wifi and breakfast.

Disliked: They should warn you to bring locks with you as they have safety cages to guard your stuff (which is of course helpful), and if you don't have it you have to buy it for 5 pounds.

Liked: WIFI, location, close proximity to natural/organic market, friendly/helpful staff, nearby Hyde Park, clean enough

Disliked: No lock on main entrance. Only guard from anyone off the street would be keyed room door, which on occasion I would find left open by other room occupants. Weak or no WIFI signal above main lobby floor. Could use some window drapes to provide some protection from street noise and light.
