"I liked the "bed-curtains" in the 14-bed dorm. So you could go/stay sleeping, while other guests used the light."

Liked: It was very tranquil and near enough to Central London to be in a good location. The breakfast was excellent, and there was still a lot of breakfast even though we got downstairs at 9.50am...

Disliked: It was quite noisy at 8am with guests whooping in the corridors whilst waiting for the showers, but other than that I enjoyed my stay.

Liked: The atmosphere was friendly at the hostel and I did not feel intimidated. There of course was an added bonus when one of the desk clerks was really cute and such a gentleman. He reminded me of Sean Connery in James Bond.

Disliked: What would have been helpful is having oyster cards sold at the hostel. It was hard for me to find my way around, even using the underground rail, overground rail and bus.

Beach / sunbathing

16 March 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Extremely nice, clean facilities. The rooms are small and kind of hot, but the windows easily open and the beds are very comfortable. The staff is utterly friendly and helpful. The bar has fairly cheap food and booze, so if you don't want to wander out too far at night, it's not a bad place to spend some time at. Also, the whole property is completely secure, what with the large gate out front and the keycard activated lockers in the rooms.

Disliked: It's quite far away from the city. However, if you just buy a travelcard or you have an oystercard, getting to and around is fairly inexpensive and very easy. Also, the keycard lockers can be annoying because they don't always open right away; it usually takes several loud attempts to open them, which can be quite bothersome at night.

Liked: Pretty easy place to get to with transport, bus stop right out the front that takes you to and from the city. Bit of a walk to the Willesden Green tube but close enough. Very secure with lockable cupboards in the room (when they dont run out of battery that is). Staff very helpful with info, escpecially dude with glasses and accent on the night shift!!! Very clean and free Wi Fi is awesome! Fairly decent FREE breakfast!

Disliked: Even though Wi Fi is free it only works in hallways or foyer and cuts out alot. The coffee/tea machine at breakfast is positively horrid, I couldn't drink it when it was free so I couldn't imagine paying for it the rest of time. Bit of a dodgy area though I walked late at night and didn't have any issues.

Liked: Good place, easy to find when the tube wasn't doing repairs on the Jubilee Line. Very laid back atmosphere, in the guests too.

Disliked: Hostels are never good places for light sleepers, but Palmer's Lodge was particularly loud in the rooms. There was absolutely no protection from people running and shouting in the hallways from closing the door.

Liked: great staff

Disliked: it was rather a coincidence, but there was too much noise, difficult to suffer so much heat in the room, had to pay extra for the locker to put your luggage, there's not a position to place your towel in the room, neither a position (a stand) for personal belongings in the shower - so small and unimportant things which could have made our stay much easier;-) but you get what you pay
