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

Liked: -free breakfast had coffee, brown and white toast, jams, orange juice, croissants, muesli and cornflakes, fruit-kitchen with fridge-had 5 working computers with internet so did not have to wait long-several bathrooms-located in a safe and quiet neighbourhood-bathrooms, bed linen, and carpet floors were clean-large, personal lockers

Disliked: -In the first 2 showers I tried, the water drained very slowly so you were standing in a deep puddle after 30 seconds of use. -Thermostat was set at a too high of a temperature -Takes at least 25 min to walk and tube to Bond Street (interchange for the Central line)

Liked: Very secure and easy going place to stay. Staff were lovely, as were other guests. Nice and cosy and clean. Great services all round.

Disliked: You need to have a waterproof shower bag to keep clothes in whilst showering. Cubicles are small with limited places to hang clothes, but the showers are lovely and warm and effective. Very minor drawback. Totally worth it.

25 July 2010 Jaap would recommend this property

Liked: Nice, friendly relaxed atmosphere, full of people.

Disliked: It's quite far from central London. Not an insurmountable distance, but when I arrived the tube line I had to take was out and I had to wait a long time for a bus which failed to tell me where I needed to go. Luckily I met someone on that same bus who had been to HL before. Also, the beds could have been better.
