Liked: The place was really well located for my trip and ease of getting around. The directions were very helpful too. the fact that it was almost literally outside the tube was a bonus and within walking distance of Shepherd Bush also gave the place brownie points. The place was spotlessly clean. I like the fact that they provide you with a towel and linen, saves you bringing your own and is excellent for a quick overnight stay. I travelled alone on this trip and stayed in the 4 bed dorm. As a female felt quite safe overall. I would definetly stay here again.

Disliked: After reading other reviews I was worried about the noise level. You can hear other people but it was general echo noise rather than 'party' type noise. The downside was the bedroom was very light and wasn't helped by an on an off security light that shone directly into the room. I was pleased with the kitchen facilities and there seemed to be plates etc in the room, but it wasn't clear whether they were for general use or belonged to someone., would have been helpful to have the facilities of the kitchen clarified, minor request though as opposed to an issue.

Liked: It was clean and linen and towels changed every other day. Location is excellent.

Disliked: It's very noisy. Not from outside but from inside, you can hear all the other guests slamming doors and talking in other rooms. Had trouble sleeping a couple of nights because of this. There even was a child crying one night and keeping me awake, even if the hostel site says no kids. The staff wasn't the friendliest but everything went ok with them. They didn't ask for any ID upon arrival, so basicly they've got no clue about who is staying in their hostel. They have a rule of no visitors but the firestairs on the side of the house were kept open all daytime and basicly just anyone could have entered the hostel.

Liked: The place was very clean, there were kitchens, showers and toilets on every floor so there was never any queue or problems to get into the shower. There was also good privacy because due to the many kitchens you could always find a place to have a tea in peace. It was quite, I had nice room mates and everyone slept well.

Disliked: The kitchens were not equipped with pots, knives or even towels to the dishes provided in the rooms. This made it a bit tricky to eat. The WIFI was paid which was not indicated in the property description. 5 pounds for 5 hours. I find that very expensive.

Liked: laundry facilities, they change beddings every other day, clean toilets and showers.

Disliked: Some stuff members didn't really want to answer any questions, they had somewhat weird attitude not appropriate for hospitality stuff. There is a noisy construction site right next to the hostel running every single day apart from Sunday, and thats gonna last for a few months more. The lift has been out of order for the last 10 days or so. The lights at the corridors constantly go on and off just for the sake of energy saving and thats really annoying especially when you wake up in the night to visit the bathroom.

Liked: Great central location in Hammersmith but at the same time very quiet. Shared kitchen was very clean as was our room, great having crockery and cutlery and fridge in our private room.
