Liked: I like the staff, they were helpful and friendly and interested to help you in any way that they can.

Disliked: The luggage room is in the basement and it was difficult to get there with a big luggage. You have to climb stairs with your luggage to get to your room. The fact that if you booked via another online agency, they may charge you more. I got charged more and was put in a room with 10 people instead of 6.

27 June 2012 JOSE LUIS would recommend this property

Liked: Se encuentra muy bien ubicado, en un barrio tranquilo, bonito y seguro. A pasos del metro Earl's Court, desde donde se pueden hacer los viajes y conexiones a las principales atracciones de Londres. Los espacios comunes son muy cómodos, luminosos y de buenas terminaciones. La pieza común es grande y los baños están limpios.

Disliked: El personal no es muy cercano. No son desagradables, pero a uno como turista le gusta que lo traten cálidamente y no tuve esa experiencia. Hay que pagar por el acceso a Internet, también así el desayuno el cual además es muy pobre, es mejor comer en otro lugar, por el mismo precio aunque con mucha más variedad.

Liked: The location is very central with public transportation within walking distance. As well there are supermarkets, several restaurants and a post office. The room we had was quite big compared to what I've seen in other hostels. The toilets and showers were clean and there were plenty of them. The staff were really knowledgeable and tried to help whenever we had a question.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: The linen was actually quite new and clean, no hair from previous guests.

Disliked: The whole hostel is in need of some renovation, facilities are worn out. But what bothered me more than the age of the facilities was the fact, that it is more than obvious the hostel has been built up in a way to save as much money as possible - especially toilet/bathroom facilities!! Really basic and out of date!! Because of the windws being so cheap (though new!), that it was only possible to open a minor part of it and because of thick curtains covering even that little hole, it got so hot in the room that it was mission impossible to fall asleep in there. And it was only may!!

Liked: Hostel is situated in a very friendly district, there are lots of cafes and restaurants near by (Asian food, Turkish food, Irish and English pubs, Starbucks and many others) / 5 minutes walk to the tube station. Vary helpful and friendly service. We felt very safe there. Shower cabins are small but there are plenty of them in the hostel and they are clear.

Disliked: Rooms are small and little bit depressing, but we spent there three nights and after one night got use to our room, so it wasn't that bad.

22 March 2012

Liked: Location

Disliked: As I stated above, we stayed in an extremely tiny room with narrow twin bed. The room was placed in a dark basement although the hostel was not very packed at the moment. We used shared, so-so clean bathroom and toilet. At booking our stay through Hostelbookers we didn't get information about additional fee of 12 GBP (3 GBP/night) that we were charged on arrival due to our lack of membership of YHA.
