Location, location, location. However... The kitchen is lacking in utensils. Please get some more. The rooms are too hot (not well-ventilated) and too crowded for the amount of beds that are in it. Beds are stacked three high, which can be scary if you're forced into the top bunk. If you're 6ft or taller, best of luck to you, you...

It was a small room, but all of the beds had curtains, so it felt like a little cave. 🙈 The placement was on the other hand fantastic! Everything just felt easy to find and get around! ☺️ An then I just love places with a free wifi and the possibility to actually have a locker!

This was the first hostel I stayed in London. The one good thing is the proximity to two tube stations (about 1 block away)this is the only plus. The rooms are substandard. The bunks stack 3 high and there is very little venilation. The showered run on 10 second timers. There is no venilation in the showers. The bathrooms are...

This place is cheap and for good reason. We booked two beds in a 8 room dorm well in advance for 11 nights. We arrived were given our keys, and after climbing 4 flights of stairs with our suitcases, discovered we had been placed in a 15 person dorm. About a week into our stay we came back to the...

This is a great hostel in a very good location. Literally a minutes walk from Bayswater Tube Station, 5 minutes from Queensway Tube Station, 10 minutes walk from Kensington Palace. Plenty of shops including supermarket, phone provider stores for sim cards (if you need one) and retail shopping. Great access to all tourist spots via tube/bus/walk. Great WIFI reception. The...

We stayed there for 4 nights and the only 2 positive things to say are the good location and nice staff. There is no elevator and the stairs are very narrow. Our room was at the forth and last floor and it was very difficult to bring all out luggage up. We took a privet room that was too small...

I wouldn't recommend this hostel. Sure a hostel is "just a place to sleep", but this hostel was ridiculous. When booking we checked the website, there was nice photos of rooms with 3 double bunks - sure that would be a lot of people/strangers I thought, but it can't be that bad... Well, it was worse. When we got to...
