Liked: The one and only one good thing to say about this hostel is Location! Thats it!

Disliked: Small beds. You have to pay extra for everything, the locker room, the luggage locker, the towel, the internet at the cafe. The walls are so thin you hear every step and noise from neighbours. The service isnt so good either. The staff is nice, but only when they have to be nice. This hostel is only made to make money, it has no soul and no passion.

Liked: Room, although small was clean and tidy - and bathroom had good shower / bath. Staff were helpful and friendly enough. Perfect place - so long as your expectations are based on a 'hostel' experience rather than a 'hotel' experience ... its not the ritz but serves a purpose.

Disliked: Lift wasnt in order - so had to walk up the stairs to the room

Liked: The location is close to Hyde park and Paddington.

Disliked: Everything other than the bed and sheets will cost you extra, Lockers, locker room, key card, and a few more, surprising when your paying so much per night for a small room. Otherwise a good hostel.

Liked: Location, Clean, and rooms with 6 beds and ensuite is sure a plus than group showers! I had no previous exp. with hostels, but considering the horror stories I hear, this was a really positive experience. and will use the same place again.

Disliked: Hate to have to pay for a locker, this is a default service; the room is VERY small for those with Cluster-phopic issues; 6 people with 6 medium size bags and I assure you there is no space to step !
