Liked: I liked the hostel part. It seemed to have fun backpackers there. They seemed interesting. Staff tried to help me with any problem i had. Beds were soft and clean. I had several mirrors in my room. Shower was nice.

Disliked: It did not have room to chill out and relax and meet other travellers. No information and no fun camping with hostel or no tours. Just for stay and sleep. :D lol

11 April 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: close to paddington subway station, no bed bugs, the shower/bathroom in our room was clean

Disliked: the floors weren't cleaned/the trash taken out after the previous customer, so our floor was very dusty. and of course the air in the room became dusty too, unpleasent to breath.. bumpy beds, and we were missing one blanket

Liked: Está muy bien localizado, en la zona Paddington, a 5 min del metro y de la estación. La habitación era muy silenciosa, el hotel da a unos jardines y no había tráfico, se duerme bien.

Disliked: Al entrar nos intentaron engañar. Al principio nos daban 4 habitaciones diferentes para 6 personas, habiendo reservado 1 habitación de 6. Las habitaciones que nos daban ya había gente que se notaba que vivía allí, con un olor muy desagradable y sucias. Al decir que nos íbamos entonces nos dijeron que se había vaciado curiosamente 2 habitaciones mejores, y pudimos meternos 3 en una habitación y otros 3 en otra, esta vez en habitaciones normales y limpias, aunque claro está, pagando más. Creo que por no dominar bien el inglés nos intentaron timar. Pero al final lo pudimos solucionar y pagando algo más estuvimos en 2 habitaciones normales y limpias.
