Liked: It was open when I arrived at 3am, which was helpful, and it was pretty easy to find. Good location close to the Tube. Beds and sheets were clean, and as comfortable as can be expected for this price.

Disliked: The bathrooms were... very dirty, and the general atmosphere was a bit of a dump zone, more of a crash point than a hang out, although the building could be very cool and funky

Liked: Excellent location. Really close to Bayswater and Queensway tube stations. Beds were comfortable. Clean sheets. Rooms and toilets cleaned daily. Plenty of space in the kitchen to cook, and seperate dining/living area. The price was absolutely amazing! So cheap!

Disliked: Nothing really. It was a little bit scruffy, but that's what you expect when you pay so little.

Liked: The huge kitchen was a bonus, being able to cook helped save money.

Disliked: It was kind of dirty, i felt klike the showers hadn't been cleaned in a while. There was also very limited showers. It was quite a dark, kind of dreary place but it provided a bed and that's all i needed.

Liked: I liked the location and it was the only thing I liked about this hostel.

Disliked: Bathrooms and bedrooms stank and were very ugly, in some of the showers there was only cold water, and the place didn't have any character or color. I truly discourage other travelers from going there. It's better to pay a little bit more but sleep in somewhere cozy with a decent smell, get breakfast, free internet, free lockers, etc.

Liked: The location was the only positive aspect.

Disliked: The dirtyness of the whole place was shocking, I have been backpacking for the last 7 years, worked as a tour guide in most countries in Southamerica and never stayed in such bad place. I stayed in the 24 bed room, it was never clean, only 1 rubbish bin for 24 people. The 3 bunk beds have a blue wodden "panel" on the wall side that was constantly hot (I assume a heater was on the wall next to the bed warming it up). Also, on the entire first floor, there were only 3 toilets, male showers but not female showers, so girls from the first and second floor had to share the 2 showers available. Needless to say the qeues for the showers were long, specially in the mornings. The toilets on the third floor didn´t have a sinks to wash your hands (for that you needed to go down to the second floor) and the toilets on the first and second floor had a sink so small and in such a weird position that you couldnt wash your face without splashing your shoes. Also not all toilets had mirrors. Furthermore, the toilets and shower rooms were constantly dirty too, toilet paper on the floor, wet floors in the toilets, and lots of hair on the wet shower floors. Its fine once, twice but every day having to wake up and to go to a dirty toilet to wash up wasnt fun. Moreover, the floors in the rooms and in the toilets had the same blue plastic board/carpet like. In the shower rooms it is extremely slippery (as it is constantly wet) and therefore, dangerous. When it comes to security, having to pay for it it's just wrong... the minimum service a hostel has to offer is cleanliness and security, specially for the larger rooms. There are no lockers anywhere except in reception, so if you have money, cards, passports, a laptop, a phone, any valuable at all you have to either leave it and risk getting stolen, or you pay 1.50 pounds a day to leave it in safety lockers in reception, funny thing is, when i went down to reception to ask for one... they didnt have any!! they only have 12 lockers for the entire hostel! to have to stay in a hostel where you dont feel your stuff is secured is just wrong! Furthermore, this is the first time that I see that they charge for the luggage room... I felt it was a joke. The hallway leading to room 52 smelled of weed, meaning people were smoking inside the building and there were some sections of the stairs that didnt even have the plastic carpet, only the dirty wood that you see when you pull out the carpet to replace it, the problem with that is not only ugly looking, it had nails popping out, which I stepped on while going down the stairs once. I could go on, but I hope you get a glimpse of what Im trying to say, I know how you guys in Hostelbookers work, I have been working in tourism for a long time, and I know you are probably going to contact the hostel first, tell them about this complaint and then never put up this review... but I kindly encourage you to pay them a visit and then you will definitely reconsider to advertise a hostel on this conditions, like I said, for a couple of days you would endure it, but a week in there was too much for me.
