Liked: Nothing.

Disliked: To begin with, the instructions to get from the tube station to the hostel are pathetic. Once I got there I had to wait for check in in a steaming hot and extremely uncomfortable common area whilst a group of Italian students spoke at the top of their lungs making me very agitated. The room is not ventilated well at all and given London's heat waves over the past years you would have thought they would have set up at least some fans for those few hot weeks... certainly this bit of common sense is not held at equity point. To top things off I had to wake up at 3am but could not get a minute of sleep because the same group of Italian students decided to race up and down the corridors and slam doors as loud as possible for a good 1 hour... they were not told off by the hostel staff either. All in all a bad location as well ... middle of nowhere. The security guard at the front door also has a massive chip on his shoulder and decided to question me as to whether I actually stayed at the hostel or not. I did not look upon his questioning kindly at all.

Liked: Clean sheets, bed fairly comfy, clean bathroom, central location

Disliked: Very cramped and claustrophobic, corridors and lift too. Felt it was extremely expensive just for a bed. Didn't appreciate added £3 non-refundable cost of buying a locker key, also charge for paying by card.

Liked: Everything was all very simple and straightforward - from checking in to breakfast through to checking out.

Disliked: The atmosphere wasn't what I had expected from a hostel. Over the 5 day period some of my room mates were very friendly, others kept themselves to themselves. The hostel didn't really promote an inclusive hostel/social environment - it felt more like a hotel for school children/trips.

Liked: Close to Paddington for a very respectable price for a private twin room including breakfast - facilities as good as or better than some cheap hotels.

Disliked: No ladder for the bunk beds - designed for 15 yr olds not 50 yr olds!
