michele botticelli thinks…

"I would suggest this property only for 2 3 days because the only positive thing is the position: less than 2 mins from Hammersmith Underground"

07 May 2013 Laura would recommend this property

Liked: the room and bathroom were very clean at the arrival and the forniture also seems quite new and well kept. There was also a small fridge in the room and everything was clean. Also the position is very good as it's 2 minutes from the metro and it was pretty quiet

Disliked: nobody never clean the room while in there, need to ask at the reception to change the towels, the shutters on the window are not the best as in the morning a lot of light comes in and it's a bit annoying to sleep, the wi-fi is very weak and in my room was losing the connection every second and need to pay 1 pound for 1 hour but it's a waste of time with this bad signal. There are no pots and pans in the kitchen so we couldn't actually use it and the last day we left the luggage in the storage room but didn't seem very safe as nobody gave us any receipt and feel like anybody could actually go there and take any luggage

Liked: The location is great it's a lovely neighbourghood & the tube & buses are really close. The room is tiny but in nice condition & perfect for just staying the night and sightseeing by day.

Disliked: There isn't much & this souldn't be read as dislikes, more so as a couple of suggestions to the owners: 1 the most important one is the doors. They MUST be fixed so they don't bang when closing, the noise woke us up (and probably the rest of the hostel) several times during the nights from the late arrivals/party goers. 2 there isn't free wifi, c'mon it's 2013 there should be free wifi like installed in all hostels :)

Liked: Provided a room and a secure place to sleep

Disliked: Staff were not helpful, there was no greeting on arrival. There were no maps of the area (or knowledge). While there was a kitchen there was no way to cook as there were no basics cooking utensils. The shower button must be pressed continuously while showering. The private rooms were clinical and you could hear everything in the halls.

Liked: The price was good face to the expensive prices in London. The room was clean and warm. It isn't in the city centre hoever it's well communicated.

Disliked: The room was very small and the staff was unkind. Wi-fi is subject to charges.

Liked: The Abercorn house hostel is located next to the Hammersmith metro station. We stayed in a 4 bed room, which was very clean. Fridge was included in a stanard price.

Disliked: You have to keep the key with you at all time, because doors are automatically closed. Beds were very noisy. You cannot move while sleeping.

Liked: Hostel położony w świetnej lokalizacji (druga strefa), z hostelu do stacji metra Hammersmith ok. 5 min. pieszo (bardzo blisko). Dojazd do ścisłego centrum zajmuje pół godziny. Obiekt położony w bocznej uliczce- cicho od ulicy. W obu pokojach lodówki, mydła, szampony oraz ręczniki (oszczędność miejsca w walizce) oraz talerze, kubki i sztućce, w pierwszym szafa, drugi z otwartą wnęką i drążkiem. Na stacji metra mini galeria handlowa, m.in. Tesco czynne do 24:00. W sąsiedztwie sklepy i kafejki. Cały obiekt sprawia wrażenie czystego i schludnego. Do intensywnego zwiedzania super, także wyjazd z przyjaciółmi. Nie polecam dla rodzin z dziećmi.

Disliked: Mimo faktu, iż kuchni jest na piętrze sporo i są świetnie wyposażone (kuchenka z piekarnikiem, czajnik elektryczny, kuchenka mikrofalowa, toster)- absolutny brak w nich garnków czy płynu do mycia naczyń, więc są praktycznie zbędne. W pokoju tylko główne światło, co przy chęci poczytania zmusza do wstawania. Jeden, droższy pokój z łazienką totalnie ciemny- 1. okno zza wnęki, trudno się w nim obudzić! Dodatkowo za oknem pracujący robotnicy (od ok. 8 rano). Pomiędzy pokojami dość cienkie ścianki działowe (rozmowy, kaszel i chrapanie słychać głośno- mimo kulturalnych sąsiadów). Dodatkowym minusem jest brak windy (3 lub więcej pięter w budynku), a także fakt, iż w jednej rezerwacji dla 4. os. dostaliśmy pokoje w dwóch skrajnych częściach hostelu- podróż trwała 2-3 min.

Liked: It was clean, recently renovated and room floors were tile so there wasn't any dust, hair or anything. Showers and toilets were ok, each guest is given their own toilet rolls and soaps, which I think is a good idea. Location is really good, 3 miniutes walk to Hammersmith bus and tube stations. There are lots of bus lines ending in Hammersmith and 5 tube lines passing from stations. Heatrow airport is 25 minutes away from Hammersmith station.

Disliked: As all the floors ar tile you can hear footsteps when you are in your room and sometimes it can be noisy, but walls are not that thin so I didn't have a problem with sleeping.

Liked: Good location, very clean, facilities are quite good. Double room was quite large with lots of storage space.

Liked: This hostel is incredibly clean and the beds are comfy. This is the second time i've used this hostel and i would choose it again. It is so close to the tube, quiet area, affordable. Great place.

Disliked: It's not very easy to meet other travellers as there is no kind of communal area that is used but when travelling in a group this wouldn't matter.

Liked: location.

Disliked: Not really a kitchen, no common place to meet people. If you are looking for a place to have fun and meet people, it is not the good adress! Not very clean, we had to ask the staff to remove a dustbin which was in the room for 2 days. Fridge, toilet paper in the room > not really convenient huge corridors, look like a hotel more than a friendly hostel

Liked: Location was great, really close to Hammersmith Tube Station and local shops/cafe's. Good laundry facilities and heating in rooms.

Disliked: The walls are thin, you can pretty much hear every little thing that happens, room next door had a baby that never stopped crying. There are no utensils in the kitchen so using the stoves and oven is pretty much out of the question...not even any sponges to wash up with, also there was a shortage of toilet paper!
