16 January 2015

Liked: Location is really excellent what comes to walking distances as well. There are also two different tube stations extremely close. Many cheap (good rate money exchange, supermarkets etc.) services also nearby. Just don't buy any services from the hostel itself.

Disliked: - No free Wi-Fi, even though they operate a hostel. Come on! - The general feeling is that if something breaks, it stays broken. The lift was perpetually out of order. More or less half of the windows in our shared room had either broken handles or bent frame. The draft and traffic noise from Bayswater Road was epic. - Most of the time the shower produced either scalding hot or freezing cold water. There were 30-60-second time windows when the water temperature was actually nice. Prepare yourself to DJ the two tap knobs and move about constantly to avoid chills and burns. - The breakfast (typical hostel carb bomb, nothing new or special about that), has a time window of 90 minutes (from 0730 to 0900), after which the disinterested staff snatches away the stuff. - The general feeling is that everything is designed to convenience the greedy owner(s) instead of the guests.

Liked: Relatively close to the city centre. They have good direct bus lines for city, Victoria Station, Notting hill

Disliked: I don't know from where should I start - this hostel don't have even elemental facilities. I booked 6 bed dorm for me and my four friends. First, when we came in the hostel, lady on the reception took additional 20 £ as key deposit. Then, lift was out of order. Room was really spartan - I don't expect closets or cabinets in room but there wasn't even wall hanger. In 6 bed dorm there was only 4 plug sockets. Second night in a hostel, in the shower there was no hot water. Tomorrow we came in the dinning room at 08:20 AM, and there was no food, no dishes. Also, in 21st century, they charge Wi-Fi (very expensive)!!! Luckily, Hilton is in the neighborhood - with very good and free Wi-Fi. Thank you Hilton! :)

Liked: location

Disliked: disgusting, put into a 8 person mixed after paying for a 6, even though got refunded. Hostel was a mess when it came to cleanliness. Mold and rust everywhere. Room wise I had a top bunk (given no sheets by the way, glad I had brought my own) and two people decided to sleep on the bottom bunk, and had no respect for me if you could see what I was implying. Should be stricter about the people per room by the morning I counted 12.
