Liked: Great staff, very helpful even at 4 am! Great location as well, very safe. The breakfast is much better than what we got at other hostels. Beds are clean and confortable.

Disliked: The only bad review we could give would be that the bathrooms could have been cleaner, with a shower instead of a bathtub to save some space.

Liked: WEll, the stuff was very nice and helpful. We stayed in a 6Bed Room with a private Bath which was clean and the beds were comfortable. At night it was very quiet. Breakfast was good.

Disliked: You might get lost in the proberties. That the Stuff forgot to tell us that we have to carry the keycard with us at all times ( each member of a group) otherwise u get problems with the guard. And the Bar serves no alcohol. But otherwise it was really great :)

Liked: On an open boulevard type street, 24 hour access / willingness to arrange lower bunk for older / disabled customers. No fuss bookings / breakfast included. Would definitely use this hostel again.

Disliked: Not enough accurate directions - is quite a complicated and hidden route for backpackers on foot from Paddington Station for anyone who doesn't know the area. could do with a better lift (i.e. to a 6 max rather than 3)

Liked: Great location. Lots of space in the room, good lockers. Ensuite in mixed dorm was a little bit of a squeeze but on the whole very clean and tidy. Some hostellers moaned that their bunks were squeaky but mine was fine.

Disliked: Did have a kitchen in which you could prepare your evening meal. That was the only area in which the hostel was lacking.

Liked: Nice street, close to Hyde Park. Good bed and linen. Everyone has an access card.

Disliked: We had no (main) light in the room and in the bathroom due to electricity issue. They tried to solve it (after several complains) but they were unsuccessful. They proposed us to have a shower in another room and finally, for the last night, they gave us a light that we putted on the sink and plugged in the bedroom! They don't accept Euro and they charge £1/night if you pay by credit card. So stupid!

Liked: Location, price and the free breakfast. It was also clean, big tvs to view the olympics and friendlly helpful staff

Disliked: The only thing that I didnt like is that there was no kitchen to cook your own food so had to buy take out. People normally tay at hostels because it a cheap way to stay and eat.

Liked: The Hostel was in a fantastic location really close to Paddington Station, the bathrooms were ensuite, free breakfast was pretty decent and was served in a rather nice common room off of a nice little courtyard.

Disliked: The bathrooms were tiny, very dirty and poorly ventilated, the rooms were ridiculously warm and on the small side for the number of people residing in them. The price was definitely right though, being the cheapest hotel I stayed at while on vacation.

Liked: If you're in London for more than three days, or have been before, this a good location, nice area around restaurants, supermarkets, hyde park, etc. The rooms themselves were clean and relatively comfortable and the staff were helpful.

Disliked: The shower was, whilst I'm sure was clean (we saw it being cleaned every day when we were in the room), it smelled, the shower curtain was mouldy and it leaked as well. Was just a bit gross. We also kept running out of toilet paper and had to ask reception a number of times for more because the cleaners did not restock it. The breakfast was also very basic, the milk, yogurt and juice were all always at room temperature, obviously the juice and milk were longlife and never kept in the fridge and the bread seemed a bit stale every morning . The worst part was they had the kitchen area for breakfast (no stove or oven, but a microwave and kettle and toaster) but if you wanted to heat something in the microwave at any time other than breakfast, you were not allowed! Everything had a big sign saying 'Brekfast use only' and there was no fridge for public use. I can handle no stove or whatever, but no fridge and not being able to use the microwave and kettle was just stupid! I had to throw some food out when I found out because I could not keep it cold. So, that was the most dissapointing aspect.
