Liked: Clean, modern decor, nice quiet Paddington neighborhood. Staff was very welcoming and helpful. This was my second stay there and I went back because of a pleasant first experience.

Disliked: About 10 minutes walk from nearest tube which is only a minor annoyance when carrying packs. Also wifi isnt included which is a shame.

Liked: they had wifi access in the entire building and was very clean

Disliked: NO KITCHEN OR LAUNDRY....Had a loud constant banging that even with ear plugs and a pillow over my head was still heard. When reception was approached they pretty well told me to deal with it and couldnt understand what the noise was that was heard on that entire floor. They did move me however at 1230 at night which was good. Overall feel though was that it had previously been a hotel that was so bad they had to turn it into a hostel.

Liked: I have been to several hostels in London so far and I have particularly appreciated this one for the cleanliness, location, and most of all the lift, which is a great plus if you have a heavy luggage!

Disliked: I have already asked the staff to provide a washing machine, which is good if you are staying for more than a couple of days. Same for the kitchen, they only have a bar and free breakfast in the morning. But if you are going to stay for a few days only all this is not a big deal.

Liked: Loved the building and the area. It was really safe and quiet. Very close to the underground. Very friendly staff, especially the security! All in all it was great, but i would recommend it to travellers under 30 years of age.

Disliked: The kitchen facilities and the dining area weren't that clean. Also, there was a problem with a leaking ceiling in our room, but luckily they gave us a different room right after. They could also serve some alcohol at the bar, unleast beer! :P

Liked: location to paddington station/airport train. had a funky vibe for a hostel. beds were good, rooms were decent. Good value. I liked the building itself.

Disliked: Paying for internet, although it's only 3 pounds... hostels should give internet for free in my opinion. It was a little tiny in the rooms and bathroom, but nice none the less.

28 August 2012 Víctor Manuel would recommend this property

Liked: Well located in London is kind of tricky because you cannot be near everything, but it was perfect for the carnival. Most of the staff was helpful and the fact that they took security so seriously was great. Breakfast served cheese which is a plus.

Disliked: The security guy during the night was way too impolite. I understand the rules against intoxicated guests are strict, but he treated us as if we were scum from the first minute and even the guy in the reception agreed that we were far from misbehaving. The guard during the day was as strict but polite and friendly, as the rest of the staff, but the other guy belongs to a dirty disco in a suburb, not to a good hostel in Paddington.

Liked: I stayed in a four person dorm and they were not to capacity. So instead of moving me to cram up with other people in other four bedroom dorms like other hostels have done, they allowed me to stay by myself in a room which was great! Staff also helped me with things they did not have to help with like computer problems. Breakfast was simple but very tasty. They had some nice cheeses.

Disliked: It was in a residential area so they would tell you to keep it down.

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: The property was in a nice area, next to a few good pubs and transportation.

Disliked: I feel the wifi should have been included. There seemed to be a fee for everything. Also, the common areas weren't the greatest.
