Liked: Very good room and beds. Good shower. Location is great when arriving from heathrow and easy access to anywhere in town via underground. Good pubs nearby with great beer and good price for lunch, dinner and breakfast.

Disliked: The pillows could be better (too thin). No cleaning of the room everyday. Only money is accepted to pay the reservation on check-in. No floor towels for the bathroom.

Liked: It feels as though you are 'tons' of people living in the same hostel due to the number of rooms available but to be fair, it is not. the location is very convenient as it is just a 5 minutes walk to the Hammersmith tube station. i like the idea of having a fridge in the room but everything else seems redundant. an average hostel but value for money.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Our room was very clean and just the right size for two persons. Beds were really comfy. We didn't have a bathroom in our room but the shared one was just across the hall so it didn't matter at all. Location is perfect, it's really near the tube station and still at a peaceful street with almost no traffic at all. I personally like to stay at Hammersmith when in London for you can shop and eat etc there and don't need to use public transportation every day when there are so many opportunities at a walking distance.

Disliked: The hostel is really loud. The rooms seemed to have no soundproofing at all and it really bothered us especially on our last night when we needed to go to bed early. People living there didn't have any clue how to act during night times: they were literally screaming on the hallways, smashing their doors and making loud noises in the kitchens. Also we found it rather disturbing that the door to the fire escape (?) at our floor was continuously open, day and night. It didn't feel really secure and it made the hallway really chilly. I would recommend this hostel for people who are not easily bothered by loud noises, otherwise it's a nice place to stay.

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 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.
