Backpacking / gap year

Liked: Not a lot

Disliked: Showers are terrible - No temperature control so some are too hot, some are too cold, and the goldilocks shower doesn't exist. Also there is nowhere to hang your towel/clothes while showering and you need to push the button to keep the shower on every 20 seconds. Internet is not free - 1 pound per hour. Given the price of rooms, this should be free. Presence of kitchens is a nice change, but there seems little point as pots and pans are not provided, and few people carry their own. Beds were poorly made, and the cleaners barge into your room at 9am on a sunday. Unfriendly staff and no atmosphere whatsoever. I would advise staying at St. Christophers Hammersmith or Queen Elizabeth over in Fulham instead.

24 October 2012 MURAT would recommend this property

Liked: It is just a few steps away from Hammersmith Metro Station. The location is very good. There are lots of restaurants and cafes and very big Tesco that you can go and eat, drink, dine and make shopping. While it is in second area and it is just a few stations away from 1st area of London. It is very clean and quite. Besides paying a lot of money to dirty hotels couples and friends could stay in Abercorn hostel's double or twin rooms for a reasonable prize and could enjoy its very clean and splendid rooms.

Disliked: MURAT left no negative feedback.

Liked: Very very spotless, well turned out! Free upgrade to private bathroom. Room included cutlery, crockery, large fridge, towels and toilettries! Small cafe selling drinks and snacks as well as supplies e.g pot noodles, milk and sandwich kits and seemed to be open all night! Very helpful staff and brilliant location, less than 5 minute walk to underground, high st and Hammersmith Apollo!

Disliked: Very very white and no.carpets so very echoey throughout (that includes the whispers of the late nighters across the hostel) although considering it's a 200 + room hostel very quiet! Could do with a tv and kettle in private rooms for the premium ;p

Liked: It gave a clean and whitewhashed impression. The location is great, close to all communications.

Disliked: There were cockroaches, and the staff didn't seem to care. In fact they seemed indifferent in general. There was no table or chair in the room, and nowhere else to sit down for a meal on the 2nd floor, in spite of providing cutlery and cooking facilities.

Liked: Location is fantastic. Very close and accessible to hammersmith tube and all London. Price is great. Clean. Warm. Good windows that open!!

Disliked: Extremely noisy door closing. The kitchen and bathroom doors have soft closing...ie are quiet on closing, but all the accommodation rooms have doors that SLAM really loudly ubless you are careful. Most people completely disregard others and let the doors go. Because the hall and rooms are all tiled, the noise is terrible. Could be very easily remedied by applying strips on room doors to cushion the closing (like they have on kitchen doors on level 2) I think the walls are OK at keeping the rooms quiet, but the doors seem to let in all hallway noise, eg very loud conversations especially by cleaning staff, in halls.

Liked: A lot better than expected, everything really clean and efficient. Very good value for money!

Disliked: Although this is for safety, i did notice a lot of CCTV cameras around the hostel and the owners were watching the cameras at reception. I felt that the amount was a bit unneeded and made me feel a bit unsettled.

Liked: I was in a single ensuite room and it looked like it was just done up, very new. It also had a bar fridge. Nice comfortable bed. Quite.

Disliked: The bathroom was a bit impractical, the sink was sealed tight and i could not drain the water, I looked for ages, there is no control and open/close the sink drain. The shower was a little small and not very good water pressure.

Sarah James

With my spouse / partner

Backpacking / gap year

18 September 2012 Sarah would recommend this property

Liked: Beds were nice and clean but could use better pillows. Location is a good place for exploring London and our room had a fridge

Disliked: The showers are sooooo rediculous, they had 20 second timers in them which was extremely annoying and not ideal in a cold place like London. They didnt even have a place to hang your clothes or towels or even a shelf to put shampoo on! The staff were also extremely rude and un helpful, seemed to rather play on there computers then acknowledge you. Overall id still stay here again as the price was reasonable for backpackers and it was clean but seriously need to work on the bathroom!!! Oh and the kitchen doesnt have any pans to cook with which was a bummer.
