"Above average. I booked a six bed room but actually give me a four bed one so I guess it's kind of upgrade. There are doors on each floor for safe but no lift so it's inconvenient for girls carrying luggages. Breakfast…"

Liked: Have stayed before, central, clean, warm, friendly, facilities cleaned regularly.

Disliked: The only problem is the guests (some are disrespectful of the facilities, especially the kitchen, and the fact that it's a charity). I love the place, its brilliant.

Liked: The staff on the front counter were helpful, The bathrooms always had soap and paper towel, Location,

Disliked: I booked a room for 7 consecutive days and they made me check out half way through my stay and check into another room. I paid for a 4 bed dorm and the second part of my stay was put in a 10 bed dorm. The staff cleaning the rooms were loud while people were sleeping, Bins in the toilets were full the whole time is was there and only the overflow was cleaned up. The floors are noisy in the whole building. This "hostel" is best suited to large groups with large budgets.

Liked: The area where the hostel is located is very nice and the tube station is near. The room was clean and the heating worked well. The breakfast for 4,95 GBP is good (fresh juices, coffee, tea, pastries, toast, fresh fruits, muesli) and you can eat as much as you like.

Disliked: On arrival, they asked us the full amount although we had already paid 10% in advance. So be catious! One of our beds was not made when we arrived but our friend got linnen to do it herself and free breakfast on the next morning. Toilets and showers are very narrow and some of them were out of order. But they weren't too crowded.

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!!
